4 out of 5 eggsNiche watercooling option with moderately difficult set up procedure.

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: quiet
keeps non over clocked CPU very cool
works with slot 1151

Cons: the mounting process is an enormous pain in the keister
instructions are only marginally helpful

Other Thoughts: I think this is a water cooler aimed at people who want higher performance and lower noise than a stock cooler, but that have no intention or are simply incapable of overclocking. In this sense it performs admirably. If you've got a CPU that can't be over clocked, absolutely despise your stock cooler, and want the aesthetic cleanliness of a AIO water cooler, then go for this. You won't be disappointed. In the time that I've had it, I don't think I've seen my CPU go past 38C. YMMV

However, the mounting process is incredibly frustrating. Your experience will basically be; "OK, now what do I do?" *looks at instructions* "OK, how do I do that?" It's so frustrating. Just be careful, take your time and look up the installation procedure on youtube. (Which, even then isn't too helpful.) It's this installation experience for an otherwise great product that forces me to dock an egg.

3 out of 5 eggsYou're Paying for Aesthetics and Semi-Decent Cooling

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: It cools well, surprisingly enough to get my FX 8320 to a comfortable 4.7GHz OC with 30 - 60C temps, normally around 52C while running games. Only 60 when using Prime95. The tubes were a comfortable length for my mid tower and easy enough to move around without feeling like they'd pop out from their fittings.

Cons: It's about as good as my Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus that I have lying downstairs, only a little difference in temps. 5C and up to 10C if I'm lucky and there's no dust in the H55. Supplied fan was chucked in a server somewhere hidden where it could obnoxiously spin away because it is not quiet AT ALL. Instructions... let's just say good thing I like puzzles and not using instructions. The pump isn't the quietest thing on earth and I can easily hear the slight buzzing of the pump, but it's quiet. Annoying, but at least quiet.

Other Thoughts: I can often hear bubbles in it, indicating that it wasn't filled enough. It sounds kinda cool though and freaks out friends who are trying to turn on your computer, so I didn't take that away from it. I'd recommend getting a different fan that is quiet and has enough static pressure to go through the radiator. You can manage a push/pull setup with the four supplied screws. Wish there were four more so it would be more secure, but it worked.

Otherwise, it was a solid cooler and looks cool enough. It's the flashy way to enter the water cooling boat, the one someone would choose if they didn't care about price per performance. Get this if you want your case to look cool, not for performance. If you're looking for performance you're looking at $80 - $100 for a good closed loop cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsEdit: was great for a while

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: Edit: March 2016 - like other reviewers my pump started making noise after almost 2 years. Even on corsair's RMA website there's a drop down menu with the option of "pump is clicking or grinding", leading one to believe that this is a common enough problem. I RMA's this and the shipping cost close to $30 from Canada. I don't normally listen to bad reviews where people complain about DOAs or RMAs, but after this I'll be paying more attention. Do yourself a favor and spend an extra $30 on a better AIO cooler.

On the positive side, corsair's RMA process is painless and quick. And the 5 year warranty is while I'll buy another corsair AIO again

original review:
Keeps my G3258 (overclocked to 4.2) under 60c while playing a heavily modded skyrim for hours on end.

Great bang for your buck.

Fits nicely at the rear of my Antec 302

Cons: pump started to fail 2 years

Other Thoughts: worked great for almost 2 years until pump started making noise, maybe it had something to do with changing cases from a vertical tower to a horizontal HTPC

1 out of 5 eggsNot so sure now.

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: Not very quiet now.

Cons: I had some difficultly installing the cpu block to the motherboard, took a couple tries to get alignment right which only smear thermal paste more than I wished for. Instructions could have been written better.

UPDATE: I thought this was the quiet edition, not the fish bowl edition, after a month of use, now the loudest part of my setup. Its past the 30 days to return, plus I have already send off for the rebate.

Other Thoughts: There are only enough screws for one fan (which seem to be a #6-32 x 1-1/4" Black Pan Head Phillips Machine Screw and a #6 Black Machine Screw Flat Washer).

3 out of 5 eggsCheap, and more effective than OEM coolers

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: Small footprint
Supplied fan is fairly quiet
CHEAP
Does a decent job with better fans

Cons: Cooling capacity peaks at 110W TDP making it useless for AMD or Overclocking at all.
Supplied fan seems flimsy and has nearly no static pressure making the previous issue worse
Hoses are a little stiff, making it a trick to fit in some cases
Always makes a whooshing sound on startup, even in optimal positioning, needs more coolant

Other Thoughts: Frankly, it's not a bad cooler. The pump seems to flow quite well when listening to the air bubbles fly through the loop on boot. The fan supplied is a really bad design, allowing a lot of the air the blades are pushing to bypass and blow back in the opposite direction from the tips. With a replacement fan, say a Noctua, the cooler can handle most lightweight build quietly. But the low TDP cooling capacity limits it to stock clocked Intel and some lower TDP AMD builds, based on A series APUs or their Athlon brothers. NOT A PERFORMANCE COOLER IN ANY WAY.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Cooler, not the one I ordered.

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: - Keeps my CPU at a frosty 25-30 Degrees Celsius at idle, and Not too bad at load.
- Looks cool
- Nice Fan
- Fits my i5-4690k

Cons: - VERY HARD to install (See Other Thoughts)
- Stiff Tubes

Other Thoughts: So, I ordered the H50, and thought I had received the 50. Instead, I got an H55 with H50 instructions. It took me 2 HOURS to figure out how to properly install the thing, and I almost had to order more thermal paste because I smeared it everywhere. Although, I finally figured it out, and it works well now. Just wish I could of avoided the hassle, so I took off an egg.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooler

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: This cooler does fit FM2+ socket, despite what everything says. I have it keeping my 860K nice and cool and have never gotten above 30c with a mild O.C. from 3.7 to 4.0.

Cons: Pain in the you know what instructions to follow.

2 out of 5 eggsLasted about 1 year before pump went.

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: Worked well for a year, cooled to 25-35C.

Cons: Past few weeks the pump has been cutting in and out. When it works, works amazing, but obviously as soon as it cuts out.. thermal shutdown. Only been a year or so, re pasting was not the issue as heat was transferred properly.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I got a faulty one, but I would not recommend this product in particular, however I have never had issues with corsair before this.

4 out of 5 eggsInstructions could be better, but great product!

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: Relatively quiet. Get's loud under load, but there's no whining or air sounds.
Keeps my FX-8320 @4.5 GHz at around 30C idle and never goes above 60C

Cons: A little difficult to install if you haven't installed a water cooler before. I'd recommend looking up a tutorial rather than trying to decode the instructions in the box.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend liquid cooling if your case has good air flow or if you plan on overclocking heavily.
