Summary: Compatible with Intel's 2011-V3 socket, which originally the fact taht it was 2011 socket compatible is why I bought this. I plan on upgrading my CPU soon. Definitely recommend buying this cooler, its quiet and gets the job done.
Pros: Installed this back in July 2013 because my stock cooler for the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T had died. Never has my CPU gone above 40C with this installed into my HAF 932 Advanced case. Temps @ idle are anywhere between 26C and 31C depending on ambient room temperature and how free of dust my case is....
Summary: I've been using the H100i with my 4790K since mid 2014. The only issue I've had so far is that the green LED sometimes doesn't turn on, leaving the RGB lighting on a "hot pink" color. After some googling I found out that it's happened to a good amount of people.
Pros: - Does the job well and looks gorgeous, especially with RGB lighting. - Hassle-free installation, and the stock fans are quiet and cool.
Cons: - The software (Corsair Link) is a little wonky, though it's gotten better with version 4 in the recent months. - The cabling could be better: micro-USB for Corsair Link is thick and inflexible. Additionally, the fan splitter looks flimsy and splits easily. I ultimately ended up using the motherb...
Summary: Despite the software issues it's not quite enough for me to take off an egg just because of how great everything else about the unit is. Despite having an overclock at 4.2ghz my 4670k never even reaches 60 degrees at full load with an sli set up running quite hot in a fairly small case.
Pros: - Reasonably Quiet - Cools the cpu very well - Easy to install as far as watercooling goes - Been Running great for 2 years
Cons: - Software for it is pretty bad, it's quite unintuitive (still haven't fully figured out exactly how it's profile system works) and the rgb selector for the glow of the cpu block is glitchy for me and selects seemingly random colours based an the rgb settings, as well as the colour resetting to v...
Summary: I never meant to be a Corsair fanboy, but every product I've ever purchased from them has been outstanding. What can you do?
Pros: This has kept an i5-3570k OC'd to 4.7 @ 1.28v below 74°C on any core under full load. Only p95 gets it so (unnecessarily) hot. Temps are easily managed running Aida or gaming. No fan noise, no leaks, no problems of any kind after 26 months. Great little piece of gear! Nice RGB Corsair logo you ca...
Summary: Totally worth it. Absolutely fantastic performance. If I had to do it again, I'd get this exact cooler in my setup. I'm so happy with this thing.
Pros: Very easy to install. I put it on the wrong way the first time, but that was completely my fault for not following the instructions correctly. I was able to overclock my i7-4790k to 4.8Ghz stable with this thing, and it barely got above 60C. My CPU went into the "danger zone" for voltage LONG bef...
Cons: The onboard software really wasn't that useful. Any free online tool can give you just as good data.
