Summary: Fit just right in my Cooler Master HAF X - Full Tower Computer Case with High Airflow Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0. I am still building This computer and have not had any power to it yet. But things look good so far.
Summary: Very easy to install. It keeps my processor at 24C idle that's only 4 degree F about room Temp in my house :) I've had prime95 running for 6 hours never saw the processor go over 42C. Don't use air cooled anymore just switch to this you won't regret it.
Summary: After using air to keep my CPU cool for years now, I was a bit hesitant about making the jump to liquid cooling, but after using this product I can honestly say I'm happy I did. Not only does it keep my i7 3770k cooler than a fan, but the temperature is constant. Noise level is a great pro, much quieter than a heat sink. Instillation was not as easy as I thought it would be, but the instructions are pretty clear.
Summary: Purchased this for my NZXT Phantom 410, Very large case for a mid tower . Works good its very thick. Impossible to fit anywhere with the fans mounted to it Had to place it in the very top in a place designed for two 120mm fans. I velcrowed mine down because now screw holes matched up and i wanted to be able to remove it.. I took away one star because it was difficult to mount in a case designed to fit the exact sized cooler.
Summary: This corsair is a great cooling system. I purchased to replace an H100i b/c I blew the controller accidentally after two years in my system. This system runs quieter than my previous and dropped 2 degrees Celsius in standby state. I love the ease of installation for these enclosed systems.
Summary: I used to build custom loops for my self, and while cool looking and cooling a little better its just not worth it. A basic XSPC kit with a D5 pump will run you $230-250 bucks. You need to leak test and clear bubbles then take it apart once a year flush the unit just a pain. For basic OCing and easy operation these AIO can't be beat, and this 105 is a killer unit very easy to install on a LGA 2011 board no need to fuss with a back plate went on just right.
Summary: I picked this up for my new i5 4670k system, and man, was it worth it. Bumped that bad boy up to 4.4ghz, and even at 100% load across all 4 cores, this thing keeps it at 50C. I've heard stories of Haswells hitting 70 - 75C under load with air cooling, so that should give you an idea of just what a beast of a cooler the H105 really is.
Summary: The corsair H105 does not disappoint. I was able to successfully mount it in a corsair 540 air in push pull with no problems (ram height plays an active role) and it keeps my fx8350 at 5Ghz within decent temps with nearly no sound (Using Noctua NF-F12s). It was relatively easy to mount in comparison to a majority of air and water coolers I have dealt with and corsair has addressed the issue seen in the h100i where the screws were going into the radiators fins.
Summary: I am very impressed by this all in one cooler. It keeps my overclocked i5-4670k at 29 degrees C at idle, and 40 degrees C at full load (overclocked with a 40x multiplier to 4000 MHz.) I am sure I could push it way higher. It is also nearly silent even under full load. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
