This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm
Pros: Real quiet...my db reader registered 18 and never peaked higher than 21 db. That is very quiet for a cpu fan. For coolness I only compared against the stock intel cooler (i-7 950) the boxed intel fan idled at 64 C and reached 86-90 C under load. With the radiator and some arctic silver I now idle at 30-34 C and peak under load 36-38 C. Very consistent low temp. No more burning my CPU.
Cons: Not necessarily a con for me, but you will most likely need to pull your Mobo for installation. Also the instructions are extremely vague, the pictures do not represent there live counterparts in great detail and the writers in charge of step-by-step heavily favor brevity.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind the added depth of a radiator with a fan attached. The 2 together are about 1.75-2" in depth, my mid-tower case required some cutting to make it work. The price-point performance of a water-cooled system is the way to go. You wont be sorry.READ FULL REVIEW
