Very nice watercooler. However

Summary: Very nice watercooler. However, be aware that the stock fans are horrible. So damn noisy that I immediately bought a twin pack of the SP120 quiet edition fans to replace them. Noise immediately dropped 500% (note: random made-up percentages to emphasize drop in noise level). Installation was also a bit finicky but that was really just my fault. The cooler could still have been designed better so that it would be less finicky.
Summary: Very good at keeping my CPU cool, like almost 23C which is almost unheard of! But with that comes noisy fans which basically requires you to get some other fans which is a pain so it lost a star for that. Though the color blue really fit my build scheme so I had to have it.
Summary: This cooler is an amazing piece of equipment. It works exactly as advertised, and is pretty simple to install. Mine are totally silent, but I have heard of units that make a buzzing noise when the CPU is hot. The only possible issue is that with larger motherboards, the cooler might need to be installed on top of the radiator connector, rather than under it. This has no impact on performance or functionality, but it's something to consider.
Summary: Absurdly great. I ordered the H100 and the 105 since I wasn't sure about clearance since I was switching to a new case for my latest build. Turns out this fit like a glove into a Corsair 650D case. I'm running it push mode (opposite of what Corsair recommends) so it's blowing the air out of the top. The case has a front mounted intake fan thats the size of a car tire and an exhaust fan in the back.
Summary: I love this guy. Worth every penny. I can compile software all day... really my Intel Xeon E3-1275 at 100% for 40+ hours and it never gets above 60C. You can see the screen shot on my about.me page.

Summary: Very awesome cooler. I have this mounted in a push/pull configuration with another pair of 120mm fans cooling an i5-4670k. The CPU idles at around 25*C and I haven't seen more than 50*C under load. Install was a breeze, the light-up Corsair logo and switchable color rings are just added touches to an already fantastic product. You will love this cooler.
Summary: Upgraded from an Antec Kuhler 620, which didn't allow for any fan speed control. It was constantly at 100% and was noisier than all. This H105, although much bigger, is near-silent. Even playing Watch Dogs and Payday 2 for a few hours in the summer, this thing still remains tolerable. Got it for a pretty decent price as well, which always helps. But even for $100 this outperforms most other coolers. Love how it looks and keeps my rig cool.
