Pros: Excellent and reliable cooler. Max temps now 37c when overclocking to 4. No failure of the pump or fans.
Cons: Big and you have to be careful of the case fitting- Check compatibility listings first. My case was not "compatible", (see below)
Other Thoughts: My rig: HAFF 632 case, ASUS Rampage Black with i7 4960, 64 of G.Skill ram, ASUS GTX 780Ti video cards in SLI, 4 hard drives and 2 SSHD,s.
Had to Purchase 4 extra long bolts with washers to attach the radiator below my top out vent fan, resulting in a push/pull configuration. The fans were noisy until I utilized the fan control program in the ASUS Motherboard software. Now quiet and cool even with heavy gaming and OC. Now- I am considering options for the video cards!
Pros: Quiet, Plenty of extra cabling, clear and precise labeling for the CPU, PCI-E, Sata, etc. Very snazzy case. Went from 650w Power supply to this and performance picked-up immediately. Rig: ASUS Rampage IV Black edition with Intel i7-4960, 64 of G-Skill ram, ASUS GTX 780 Ti, 4 HD and 2 SS HD.. Will be adding second ASUS GTX 780 Ti in SLI.
Neptune Water cooler for CPU in Cool master HAFF 963 case with plenty of fans.
Cons: Had to pay for it.
Other Thoughts: Went to ASUS sight to calculate power requirements prior to Purchase. This is well over their recommendations with the 2 video cards.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Not only cools the chip, but the whole motherboard. Easy Install, just study the instructions carefully for your chip and case. Verify compatibility with case.
Cons: Noisy fans, and price.
Other Thoughts: Placed in HAFF 632 and mounted under the top fan with 4 bolts I purchased. Now have a push/Pull that is quieter than with just the jet flow fans. This is overkill for most watercoolers and now my chip and ram are COLD during heavy gaming, but video card is hot.
