Pros: fast when works
Cons: Drive is causing random lockups. Tried it in several different machines with the same result. My fault I didn't get it installed and tested fast enough to return it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100/RF) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Pros: Nice cooling. No real idle temp difference, but it cools very nice when under load. The big plus for me was my internal case temps went down at least 10 deg C due to the cpu heat exhausting outside the case.
Cons: Didn't have much luck buying refurbished this time. At the price I figured it was an acceptable risk. The first one sent to me had a dead water pump. Newegg handled it in typical above board fashion...no cost out of pocket to send it back and get it replaced. The second one had a dead fan controller. Hooked everything up and the fans run at high only. Extremely loud. Rather than go the week or more turnaround the second time I picked up a LCD fan controller I had been meaning to get anyhow and routed everything through that. Works just fine. As for the unit itself...defects aside...the only real cons are the factory speed control is on the cpu block, have to open the case to change it. The stock fans are obnoxious at anything over 40%.
Other Thoughts: overall as my first water cooling solution I'm happy with the end result. With a little more patience I probably would have hit on a 100% working unit, but this one will suit my needs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Solid running memory. Passed all tests on installation. The heat sinks are solid and attractive.
Other Thoughts: I'm not heavy into overclocking so I cant speak for their tune ability, however they made a nice no hassle addition to my tower and price was right.READ FULL REVIEW
