This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
Pros: The radiator is very high quality. The radiator has some weight to it telling me they used quality material when building the the cooler. The pump itself operates at ~2200RPM.
Keeps my CPU at rouhgly 30-32C. No complaints there.
Cons: Corsair tech support tried to help me through something and has failed. I noticed another review posted the same negative review, so this is obviously a problem that corsair has not addressed.
On initial boot up the water pump makes a horrible clicking sound. At first I thought it was a bearing in a fan. It wasn't. The clicking goes away, but the corsair rep said the pump has an initial start up shock which could be causing this problem.
Second issue, the corsair link is garbage. It worked once and hasn't worked since. It had some cool features such changing the pump different colors, but now it just blinks red. Thank goodness I am using a black/red theme. Pretty disappointed about the link not working.
Other Thoughts: However, all and all, the pump works and keeps my stuff cool. Just wish I didn't waste my money on the link software which is clearly just garbage.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Silent
- Modular with black sleeved cables
Other Thoughts: I don't hear a whine that other people talk about. Maybe if you put it on silent mode? There are two modes on this PSU, Normal and Hybrid mode. Even under normal I don't hear a whine.
Overall it has powered my system up just fine.

So far no complaints. I truely feel people complain way to much. There is no need to go much higher than a 760W. Even when performing SLi, the AX860 would run most setups. These 1000W power supplies are ridiculous. What are you launching? A rocket to the moon? Save your money and get this beastly PSu and invest your money in a better mob/CPU/Cooling...something!
Would buy again!
Pros: - Silent
- Has ran anything that I have thrown at it so far with ease.
- I'm a little concerned about the future because my case and mobo doesn't allow me to buy another one for SLi.
Cons: The only complaint I have is the gray on the casing. I really wish they would have made it all black because the grey doesn't go with my black and red scheme within my case. Fits in the Corsair 350D just fine.
Other Thoughts: for $250 you can't beat this card. Got it on a combo with with a Samsung 120GB evo and i5-4670k. Good deal!READ FULL REVIEW
