Excerpt: First of all this Hydro cooler from Corsair couldn't be any easier to install for anyone who wishes to follow Corsairs recommendation on how it should be installed in terms of fan placement etc.
Excerpt: Easy to install. Found that placing rubber washers between the fan the pc case reduced to noise levels a lot. Also instruction don't mention the pump needs full 12V and shouldn't be plugged into the motherboard if it has smart fan.
Excerpt: I'm no expert but I found this unit straight forward to fit, had to fit a second fan (push/pull) to get the desired result and now it works very well. An uncomplicated way to move into watercooling.
Excerpt: This cooler does exactly what it said it will do in the reviews. My CPU now runs at below 55 C whilst at 100% load. I did have a small issue fitting the heatsink to my processor, as some motherboard components were slightly in the way, so I would advise everyone to check first before screwing it...
Excerpt: This product is working really well, but I almost returned it before we installed it, as when we installed the mounting/back plate there was about a 3mm gap when all the screws were in as far as they could go and the mounting unit was wobbling.
Summary: This takes cooling your CPU to a whole different level and with the new price and rebate it is as affordable as a standard fan cooler. The CPU is running at a much lower temperature at idol than it did under a standard fan cooler and at load IT IS AWESOME!
Summary: Intel users might not like pulling the motherboard out to install this but for AMD fans this was a breeze!! Love to temps I am getting. Right out of the box this cooler was 100% quality.. Vary well put together.
