This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
Pros: I was getting 32-33 degrees C on my old aircooler at idle and this keeps my CPU cores around 18-19. Load used to be 50-51 C on Prime 95, now its more like 47-48 (And this is with a much more cluttered case, a CPU with double the cores and increased TDP, not to mention the increased heat from crossfired GPUs). I think was a good buy well worth the money.
Cons: It works well and is quiet with AFTERMARKET FANS. I was lucky to have read a review on here prior to buying this item that warned against using the stock fans that come with the kit. I bought aftermarket fans of course, though I did try the stock fans out as a test. They literally sound like jet turbines warming up! DO NOT USE THIS WITH STOCK FANS. Get Arctic F12 PWM Fluid Dynamic Bearing fans.
