This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: I am dumping heat from my FX8350 CPU onto the water cooling of the H100i. The CPU and MB upgrades were based on the heat dissipation of the H100i. A FX6350 with a H80 went well so this was the next step. Very happy with results
Cons: Need to add power and USB connections out of sequence from install manual.
Other Thoughts: Update the install manual to show that the USB/Link and power Y have to attached after the hold down is attached and the chiller is attached to the top of the CPU. Space for adding the two connectors does not exist on either ASUS or Gigabyte MB.
I need a chiller for my video card.
