After 3 years, they still have not fixed the backplate gap issue

Harley P., Newegg
8 July 2015
  • 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...

To loud

David B., Newegg
10 May 2015
  • Summary: Could not get the Corsair Link software to work right either as it kept telling me my cpu was at 4c while mb software would say 31c at idle.. will be looking at other manufactures in the future
  • Pros: Good temps at idle or load
  • Cons: to loud sounds like a jet as the pump just whines at any load without overclocks.. do not buy as the pump sucks and is so loud while gaming even with a headset on it is a distraction.. I keep wondering when the pump will blow up....

Liquid Coolers SUCK

Casey R., Newegg
23 April 2015
  • Summary: DO NOT BUY LIQUID COOLERS
  • Pros: Small profile, easy to install, not a fin to cut ur self on, and it is CORSAIR. Really like their memory !
  • Cons: The idle temp on a 3.7Ghz AMD CPU is 59C now. When we first built a the machine a year ago it was 45C. My Zalman starts at 31C 4 years ago. My 8 core AMD 3.7 gig runs at 58C full throttle . The Liquid cooler runs at 75C and the machine crashes. THIS COOLER SUCKS

Horrible cooler, low power pump

Alexander G., Newegg
10 April 2015
  • Summary: I've done watercooling for several years, however i'll never touch Corsair stuff again. Installed the cooler (easy installation) but the pump died within 10 minutes resulting in a CPU overheat.
  • Pros: Compact size, promises easily installation. Tubes are "just" long enough to be perfect.
  • Cons: Weak pump, unreliable, CPU killer

Disappointed

RPB™, Amazon
8 April 2015
  • Summary: It looked OK. I installed it easily, but it was ineffective for cooling and the fans were horrible. Not worth the price. I went with a noctua heatsink and it works better than this.

Claims FM2 compatible, not true

Jose C., Newegg
21 March 2015
  • Summary: Despite its claim of being compatible with AMD socket FM2, the included brackets will not fit on my motherboard. ASUS F2A85-M Pro (an FM2 socket motherboard). I sent email to Corsair support. I will update this review when I get an answer.
  • Pros: Pretty box, built quality seems good.
  • Cons: Incompatible with Asus F2A85-M Pro (FM2 socket)

design flaw that can lead to CPU damage

Thomas H., Newegg
30 January 2015
  • Summary: When you see this response from them don't get your hopes up - They don't work with you and they don't improve your experience. Manufacturer Response: Dear customer, We're sorry to hear that your replacement also had LED issues.
  • Pros: None yet until the 2 major issues get resolved - No issues with the Egg.
  • Cons: First the unit has a design flaw that can result in your CPU overheating. The Intel back plate contains 4 spacers that install into your motherboard that you then attach the 4 standoff screws into. The problem is the back plate was designed for motherboards made with a thicker circuit board mater...
