Was a good investment

Summary: Overall, I am pleased with my purchase, and to be honest the cons are minimal and just minor annoyances. Great deal if you can catch it on sale.
Pros: installed "fairly" easily, the instructions were very simple to follow and the time it takes to set up the unit was minimal. My cpu now runs at 11 degree celsius under load. The reason why I gave it a 4 star instead of a 5? More on that below.
Cons: Said it came with 8 washers....it did not. Only had 4 for the rad fan screws. The Y cable for the fan to attach to the sensor have plastic covers, so if you're like me and old age is catching up to you and you forget that these covers exist, well you will sit there looking at the Y cable thinking...
Summary: Pretty easy to setup. Hooked up on top of a i7-4790K. Currently only overclocking to 4.4GHz. Plan to amp up some more now that i proved it stable for 2 weeks. Cons: Software is buggy. Configured the applications to show the sensors i care about in my case.
Pros: This does a decent job of keeping my CPU cool, however, the fans are loud when doing CPU intensive tasks. I replaced the fans with Cougar PWNM fans I purchased here on new egg and used Corsair link to setup a custom profile, now my machine is cool and quiet. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product....
Summary: The CPU I have is an i7-4790k, and under heavy load it still gets to 95c, I have reapplied Artic Silver multiple times and made sure it had full contact. Solid build quality, but if you have a CPU like this or better, I would recommend a 240mm radiator like the H100i. Btw, cpu is at 4.3GHz.
Pros: Works good on $70-$150 CPUs Fans are nice Tubing is O.K.
Cons: Tubing might be a little stiff, but it worked fine in my case. Pump was a little loud when idling, bat that could be my settings.
Actually better than I expected for a AIO cooling system.

Summary: I'l do 4 stars for now because I just put it in my case. Will come back in a couple weeks/months to give a more extensive review. Anywho, here is my config: - case: Cooler Master 130 - MB: MSI H97i-AC - CPU: Intel Core i5-4590K - GPU : EVGA GTX 980 SC ACX 2.0 So first, it was a huge pain to install.
Summary: The extra thick radiator in a push-pull setup seems to be a winning design!
Pros: *Very good performance, had a noticeable drop in temps compared to the Hyper 212 Evo *I'm not going to say that it's super silent, but noise is not a problem during normal operation or even gaming *Corsair link software is nice *Hardware installation is not too complicated
Cons: *Link software will require the use of a usb 2.0 header on your MB, may not be a big deal *I had a minor setback when I chose not to update f/w right after installing link software; had to uninstall/reinstall to get it right *I accidentally stripped some threads from a screw hole on one side of t...
