Not Sure About This Thing

Summary: At first I was really happy - the system idled in the low 30's Celsius, then crept up slowly over time. Anything I've tried has not recovered the cooling performance. I don't know that I'd recommend one of these to my friends. Maybe my enemies.
Pros: Cooled great at first, the closed loop is nice so I don't have to mess with filling my own system. Looks kinda cool, especially with the colored LED.
Cons: The performance seems like it has degraded over the almost two years I've had this. I don't know if that is normal, but I'm thinking of replacing it with an air cooler from Noctua since the H80i has become really noisy, even with several different fans. They need to run almost full speed to keep ...
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 ..
Summary: Do not buy this if unless you know your away around Mini-ITX motherboards. Also, it does NOT include all the hardware you need unlike other coolers. My motherboard does not have a threaded backplate so I had to work around it. Temperatures still remain the same compare to my previous air cooler.
better than the old h70i it replaced but not by much.

Summary: better than the old h70i it replaced but not by much. installed it with the pre-applied thermal paste. temps in the high 30s low 40s(in celsius) Idle..... installation was simple enough, though the tubes are very stiff.
Pros: Great cooling Quiet/efficient Easy installation Sturdy Tubes
Cons: Weak metal, the screws do not fit because the holes in the radiator that the screws go into have widened over time and now make a very irritating rattling sound and are no long fully protecting the radiator from falling. After about 11 months of owning this, I will be getting a replacement.
Summary: Not exactly the greatest they've put out in terms of design. The GT variant is definitely better at cooling that the previous generation. However, the overall design is off putting. What I mean is the tubing. It's braided, great, but not as flexible as the first generation h80i.

Summary: May want to re-engineer the connections on the pump, I can also see those pin bending easy if you pre-tuck your wires and not get the connection straight on.
Pros: Was Happy, as one can be. Running 45*C at 4.3Ghz on my i7-4770K Life was good!
Cons: Was re-routing cable, cleaning up the case, re-connected the dual fan wiring harness to the pump, but the harness connect on the pump broke off, and fell inside the pump casing! :| Re-connected to secondary pump wire connection – fans run/stop/run/stop/run/stop. Driving me nuts with my push notic...
Summary: It works for a cpu that does not burn as hot as the AMD 9590, this product cannot handle the heat output for this processor and I do not recommend anyone get it, period. My rig is freezing and shutting down to prevent damage as far down clocking my processor I rather just get something else.
Pros: When it stayed attached to my case it worked wonders.
Cons: Beware of the threads on the radiator they strip out very easily. Make sure you only tighten them snug and no more or you will end up like me with a paper weight waiting for RMA/Replacement if I can still get it replaced for a problem like this.
so I'm an expert at building computers but this thing was not exactly easy to deal with

Summary: Okay, so I'm not 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.
