Summary: Okay, so I'm an expert at building computers but this thing was not exactly easy to deal with. The larger radiator is of course, a good thing for better cooling but it made it extremely difficult to plug in some of my wires because it took up a lot of space when I installed it. I guess that partly my fault but I've also never had that issue with previous radiators.
5 stars if corsair link cable gets replaced in reasonable time frame

Summary: Would give 5 stars but a wire came loose on the corsair link cable. The part that goes to usb header on mobo. Just waiting on their response to hopefully get me a replacement cable. Only had it for one day.
Summary: Slightly better than my old H80i however, certainly nothing to write home about as far as performance is concerned when compared to my old H80i. The only reason I bought this version is because the sata power connector on my old H80i broke and I couldn't be bothered with rigging up a reliable repair but ya, anyways no complaints thus far.
Summary: So far so good! Dropped my temps by 10-20C. Good feel and construction, sleek looking. It'd be cool if they ran the fan cables down one tube to reduce loose wires but I just used zip ties, works well. I replaced the factory paste with arctic silver and got 10-15C cooler temps so I recommend doing this. It's big, make sure it fits. For AMD mount: The usb cable for software control doesn't fit right because of the right angle on the cable.
Summary: While the fan does a great job of cooling, the Link software is rubbish on Win 8.1. After trying every tweak suggested it still fails miserably. Still on the fence about returning it as what I paid for is what not was advertised or what I got.
Summary: I have had this liquid cooler on for about 30 minutes.. Took me little over an hour to install fat hands small case.... Put this on a AMD fx-6100 idle temps dropping from stock 35-9 degrees C full load with this for 5 minutes sat at a comfortable 25 DEG C!! Only con i can see is it was kinda hard to mount with the tubing being so stiff... Love it color change with Corsair link.. Software is a bit bulky kinda liked ET6...
Summary: I bought the H80i for an AMD FX chip, and performance wise its pretty great. Ran some stress test on prime95, and max temps I saw were 47c. There are some issues though, particularly with the Corsair link software...which let me just say was a pain. Running Windows 8.1 btw. I went to their website and downloaded their latest firmware for it, it recognized everything...except the cooler!. uninstalled, reinstalled, restarted, changed connectors nothing was working.
