This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only
Pros: It works properly, no issues. Looks great. Watched one of the videos out here so it was pretty easy to install.
Cons: Weird screws on the backplate - don't lose them! (See Below)
Other Thoughts: Set the machine up on the kitchen table to install this. Then promptly dropped one of the unique backplate screws that bounced and flew right between the cabinet & dishwasher, and into the house foundation. (At least it sounded like that. The screw was unfindable, so who knows?)
So I write Corsair because none of the pictures of replacement parts on their site specifically shows the screws. (This is Sunday.)
The response? Right off, they send the entire backplate assembly to me for free. Free, even though I flat out lost it, and explain it as such.
Freakin awesome. Already have a bunch of Corsair stuff (always been a solid brand for me), but if there's a Corsair option, Corsair is now it. Amazing service.
Pros: Everything working except sound. For those not doing a 'hack build, solid board with everything (inc sound) working. Thin enough to easily fit in cramped cases such as the Cosmos SE with room to spare. SATA ports pointing 'out' allowing for even more cramped environments.
Cons: As stated, sound for the 'hack. USB speakers covered that.
Other Thoughts: Seems to be a good board for me.READ FULL REVIEW
