This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: Looks cool. Easy to install. Keeps my 4670k very cool. I'm not sure it's that much better than a good air cooler but I like the air flow and space it frees up in my 800D.
Cons: The thing basically installs itself with two caveats. One is the back plate feels loose. I called Corsair support and they said this was normal. When you crank down the thumb screws on the front it pulls it tight (and it did). The second is the big ***WARNING***. The back plate needs to be oriented correctly. At first glance its the same on all sides. The directions don't tell you there are notches on one side. On my ASUS Z87-Pro the notches needed to go up in order for the plate to sit flush against the motherboard.
Other Thoughts: All in all I like it. Is it better than a good air cooler? Probably not for the cost but with the added advantages of more/better air flow in my case and awesome looks I think the price is justified. I would purchase it again.

Pros: Capable...in a good way. Ive put Win 7, Mint, Ubuntu, Ubuntu server and it has ran great with all. Ive currently thrown in a couple of 2tb HDDs and running it as a ps3 media server, mumble server, and a samba share. Would def buy another if needed.
Cons: None so far about 8 months in.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Flawless so far. Stuck it in and it worked.
Other Thoughts: No issues. I like the normal heat spreaders like on these because never an issue with an after market heat sink and fan. I have the Frio cooler on my 955 BE and no problem fitting.READ FULL REVIEW
