Good Product, Terrible Instructions

CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)
CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)

Pros: Runs cool, isn't too noisy, and hasn't leaked yet (I have only had it for a few days).

Cons: 1.PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS LGA COMPATIBLE BUT NOT LISTED AS SO IN THE INSTRUCTIONS: Many people have purchased this product thinking that it was LGA 1150 compatible because that is what it said on Newegg. They would then open it up, look at the instructions, see no mention of LGA 1150 (only mention of 1366, 1155, and 1156) and then return it because it isn't compatible with their system. IF YOU ARE GOING TO INSTALL THIS INTO AN LGA 1150 SYSTEM THEN FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR LGA 1156 AND IT WILL WORK PERFECTLY FINE. Like many others I was going to return mine, but unlike many others I did some measurements and found that LGA 1156 is the same fan mounting size as LGA 1150. 2.There is a small plastic ring included in the box, but absolutely no mention of it in the instruction manual. This ring is used to attach the CPU block to the retention ring before you attach the retention ring to the motherboard (this allows you to install it all at once and may be easier for you than if you were to do it the way listed in the manual). The other option (the only one shown in the manual) is that you first attach the retention ring to the motherboard and then fiddle with the CPU block until it fits into the retention ring. 3.The instruction manual states that it is recommended to blow the hot air from the heat sink into your case (in a push configuration), and they provide no extra screws if you want to actually blow the hot air out of your case instead of in. I had to find some extra case screws that kind of fit, just in order to have a fan configuration that actually makes sense (Corsair could have easily supplied a few extra screws)

Overall Review: I am not pleased with the absolutely terrible user manual provided by Corsair. After some research, I found out that there was an older version of this cooler, and I believe that when corsair made changes to this older cooler they forgot to give it a new instructions manual because the current one is trash.

Cheap, works as advertised.
