Summary: Instructions a little bit unhelpful regarding the fan pin connections, but once setup wow. Found video tutorials online maybe they need to point the manual at them. Starts up sounds like a jet engine but after boot silent as a mouse. i do not even know if my pc is actually running [obviously together with the other components i bought to go with this]. CPU temp runs at about 18-25 degrees C depending on how hot it is in my house.
Summary: Running Diablo 3 for 3 hours with normal fan heat sync, processor would hit 97C. Installed this guy, did the same test for several days, at best it got to 45C. A little tight in my case, but with a little customization, works awesome.
Summary: when planning to mount the radiator, be mindful that each end sticks out another 3/4inch and (in my case, corsair 800D) it will block the next spot for an additional fan... As well the radiator screws dont thread fluidly, you have to somewhat push it through at times... holds very well after all is said and done. make sure you plug the 3 pin connector specifically into 'cpu_fan' lead on the motherboard....
Pros: Built very sturdy, All in one unit, no fussing with fluid, includes fans and all mounting hardware, excellent when on sale
Cons: size of the radiator blocks the next space where a fan would mount
Summary: Well I have been running the H100I for over a month now and I wanted to give it some time to ensure the item worked as advertise. Let me tell you it works and works well. My computer runs super quiet and if you are on the edge about buying this system, just get it you will be 100% happy. Install is a snap just be careful not to over tighten the fan screws to the assembly other than that everything else is a breeze.
