First Corsair cooler purchase, won't be my last.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

Pros: Purchased for use on AMD 8350 OC's to 5 ghz. I wanted the Thermaltake pro (old fanboy) but was out of stock, so I took a chance on this model, I was not dissapointed. Excellent cooling, keeps CPU under 60 C under heavy gaming loads. Quiet running, and was able to squeeze it in an old Thermaltake Tsunami case with only minor modifications. Great mounting system.

Cons: Insturction sheet is lacking, use youtube videos for better instructions.
