This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i CW-9060008-WW/RF Water Cooler
Pros: >Keeps my overclocked FX-8320 @ 4.5 Ghz with great temps.
>Fairly easy to install.
>High quality radiator and pipes. I am not afraid of leaks.
> Only $45, great value.
Cons: > Stock fans unacceptably loud.
> Software to control fans is very buggy (Corsair Link)
> I have had problems with LOUD pump noise.
Other Thoughts: I was quite disappointed with this unit when I first got it because not only were the fans extremely loud, but the pump would make a loud noise at a frequency of 1-2 hz every once in a while and I couldnt figure out how to get it to go away. I bought some cougar CF-T12S4 fans and put those on instead. Fan noise went WAY down and for some reason the pump no longer makes noise either!
The software however is a pain to use. I have had to reinstall many times because it wouldn't save my settings upon reboot...
For anyone who is wondering about temps, I have overclocked my FX-8320 1000 Mhz from stock and I idle around 25 celcius and while in games hover around 35-40. A prime 95 stress test for 15 minutes will cap at about 58 celcius. This is with well applied Arctic MX-4 themal paste. These are great temperatures considering AMD cpus run hot and I am running a pretty high overclock.
