Pros: Apparent Value
Cons: Bought four of these. I have three installed and have not been able to get to the fourth one. That was a good think as one PC I put into service in June 2015 just had the cooler controller on the CPU die and I had to disassemble parts from my fourth machine to fix the first. Only working for thre...
Summary: Even with it's shortcomings, I still like the software. It's nice to have Corsair Link displayed on a 2nd/3rd monitor, while I'm gaming. I use to get worried when I gamed on my previous computers, and I could feel the heat radiating from my PC.
Pros: I've never seen my CPU's temp rise above 35° Celsius. The [downloadable] software is neat, giving the ability to monitor various installed fans, their speeds, temp's on the MoBo, GPU's, temp of Disk Drives, MoBo CPU temp, CPU temp, and H80i pump temp. It also gives the ability to control the fans...
Cons: Despite the bells and whistles, the software still leaves much to be desired. The quality of the hardware is fine, and this doesn't really detract from that too much: Corsair Link must be opened, even though it's set to auto-start with Windows, before performance settings will be applied. Setting...
Summary: I received the cpu cooler. The H80i GT was an upgrade to my H60.. I noticed about a 10C difference between the 2 fan + larger diameter radiator in comparison to the H60 single fan smaller diameter radiator.. The radiator that I received had bent fins ..
A little tricky for a small case and AMD, but excellent cooler.

Summary: Shipping took longer than Prime normally does, but it still arrived earlier than quoted. Installation was fairly straight forward. The tubes are a little long for a Corsair 200R case, but still fit, and holding everything aligned to install the cooler and fan to the case was a bit tricky solo, but...
Summary: Well this was a replacement for an older version by the same company. I have a rather large case desktop computer and my son also the same, we built these about 3 years ago. What I noticed is I would get a boot error about the CPU fan.
After 3 years, they still have not fixed the backplate gap issue

Summary: I had to figure out what washers I need in the middle of a night. Bad bad experience. Please, include some washers wouldn't be hard.
Pros: LED color is of course Corsair's most attractive selling point.
Cons: 1. H80i is really huge. Does not fit every single ITX case. Does not fit Cooler Master RC-130. 2. After they released this product in 2012, it has been 3 years and they still make users to figure out about the backplate loose (gap) problem themselves. That is unacceptable. Simply include some was...
