4 out of 5 eggs Keeps PC cool - Hard install 02/02/2011

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro H70 CWCH70 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler

Pros:

- temperatures for my i7-950 went from 45 - 47 with stock cooler to about 36 - 42 Celcius.

- self contained

- quiet!

Cons:

installation can be done by one person, but so much easier with two people. The corsair installation youtube video(H50) helped a lot in the sense that one should loosely mount the bracket over the chip FIRST, hold it up, and while the bracket is still lifted, then insert the pump, so as not to disturb the thermalpaste.

Other Thoughts:

As everyone else has mentioned, installation of the pump isfairly difficult(especially if you have very little room to work with, or if the fan power connectors lie underneath the fans. Unfortunately, my Lian-li 1020v case with the slide out motherboard tray is rendered inoperable as the fans "lock it in" somewhat. Fans are fairly quiet In any case, PC is now nice and cool.
