Showing 1-10 of 24
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...
Terrible PIECE OF JUNK!!!!! Evo 212 out perform it for 1/3% of the pricing?

Summary: Will return this junk!
Pros: The box is beautiful that's about it for the pro's
Cons: Louder than any fan air cooler on the market You heard me 10x louder than a 212 evo Overheating idle temps , terrible cooling , noisy , pricey , typical corsair full of promises but doesn't deliver.
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....
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
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.
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)
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...
