Decent cpu cooler, takes up alot of space with push/pull but the temps are worth the sacrifice. 8/10 would buy again.
A bit hard to install into the HAF 912, kind of tight.
Very easy to assemble and mount. I had absolutely zero issues with Corsair Link. With a little bit of reading, i got a few of the quirks worked out (Getting it to stay 1 color needs a setting of 1 in Green and 1 in Blue, not 0 in each). The only thing is the stock fans can be LOOUUUDDD. I replaced them with some better looking LED fans.
Extremely poor cooling, even with reseating and reapplying thermal paste; H55 cooled my i7 960 @4.1Ghz better than this does the 4770K.
I went with the H80i because it was on sale and looks nicer IMO than air coolers. The software is a little buggy, but it has a lot of options that you can mess with.
Its not an outstanding unit for the bulkiness
The corsair link software is too glitchy and required registry edit to display the fans. However, it does a great job keeping the cpu cool.
I was dissapointed by this cooler, seeing the thick rad made me believe it would be more capable, but the cooling performance isnt all that great, it makes alot of noise when your fans go above 1100 rpm and the corsair link software is extremely buggy.
quiet for the most part, keeps my CPU nice n cool. but Corsair Link will not work in Windows 10, and I can hear the pump when it ramps up
Great cooling solution at the price. My thought behind getting this and not H100i or other larger Rad is that my overclock is mild so didnt need the extra cooling, however the tubes on H80i are a little too short for my liking but that is about my only complaint of the cooler keeps CPU around 35 degrees at idle and has never gone above 58 under extreme load when i ramped up my overclock to 4.6GHz. Good buy for the price.
