Excerpt: First one worked for about 2 minutes then died. Reset the firmware remained DOA. Second one has only one fan speed SLOWWWWW. Reset firmware still fan speed SLOWWWWW. They are sending new fans even though the ones I have work on a 4 pin 12v plug. Will update on replacements fans.Corsair did send the fans but they did not fix the SLOWWWW fan problem. They issued an RMA for a complete return and wanted me to pay for shipping. Returned to where I bought it for a full refund.
Summary: if it fits you case GET IT!!!!!! i have a amd fx6100 and i've had it up to 5Ghz and after 30 min with prime95 running it was at 52c and that is the highest temp it has ever got but warning i added 2 more fans to mine so that it is in a push pull config but this is a great product and i give a 4 for features because doesn't fit that many cases
Summary: I'm using this for an LGA 1155 i5 2500k on an Asus p8z68v pro(gen3). You may find it difficult to install the back plate but it's worth it. It keeps my overclocked processor at 4.5 ghz between 25-32 on idle and never exceeds 60 celsius on full load. The fans attached to the radiator are VERY loud. I would plug them into your mobo's fan controllers and use speedfan to adjust for the speeds. In any case, I found it to offer Great performance for an Excellent price!
Summary: These units are 50.50 for odds of getting a defective board. If you aren't afraid to RMA, go ahead and take chances that you will get a working unit on first order. I spent 2 days and 3 different configurations, finally coming to realization that I had a defective cooler. My temps skyrockeded from Post, and within bios, i got an overheaded CPU. It jumped temps so fast that it was as if I had no cooler at all on my cpu.
Summary: Running this inside CM HAF 922 Mid Tower. Fit nicely inside. Little bit confusing putting it together, but little bit of time and was no problems afterwards. Keeps my i7 2600k nice and cool, full load never reached above 45celcius at 4.6mhz overclock. Outstanding product! Corsair all the way!
Summary: I have this installed on an AMD FX-8150 and Corsair Obsidian 800D case and Crosshair V motherboard, and the combination is awesome. Installation was very smooth and works like a charm. Highly recommend for someone who's going to overclock and work their system like a dog... This is a gaming rig and it gets quite the workout.
Summary: I like this cooler a lot. It is top notch quality and runs like a boss when gaming, keeping my temps below average. Maybe not the best performance cooler out there but gets the job done and use up a lot less space around the cpu then those big mofo fan coolers.
Summary: Easy to install in my Level 10 GT case. Cool and reasonably quiet. Hit heat wall with 1090T at +.025V (1.5V) in prime 95 at 4.0Ghz. My OC is on hold while I wait for 2 more 120mm fans, enabling push-pull configuration. I do recommend H100, but if you're buying to overclock, order the extra fans at the same time!
