    Nice and quiet, even with dual fans, and my core temps remain low even in graphic intensive games.

    Definitely runs cooler than the stock fans I had. Little bit difficult to setup on my case, but that's on the case not the product. Overall really good.

    This Cooler was installed on my I7-8700k CPU about 2 weeks ago. It also runs very Quiet and the RGB is very nice. Keeps the CPU cool enough.

    Only gave it 4 stars due to the first one being defective. Got this for a new build a month ago, but the first one I got leaked in its packaging. Traded it in for the same model and it installed easily. Fans run well and fairly quiet.

    This is used to cool a delidded 8086K while overclocked at 5GHz. Was able to keep CPU below 82C running AVX on all cores with Prime95. Otherwise, average temperatures are around the mid 60's while running normal apps and games. Relatively quiet with the included fans at full speed.

    I have this installed on a Ryzen 7 2700x. I had a smaller 120mm AIO cooling it before. This 280mm unit keeps my temps 12-15c cooler under load AND my cpu clocks itself about 100-125MHz higher as well. This cooler unlocked some extra performance from my cpu without me having to do any manual over clocking.

    Best CPU Liquid Cooling System

    Does a very good job at cooling down my i7 8700k. I am getting frame rate boosts because of the lower temperatures and boost clock. Setup is not too difficult as long as you follow the instructions. Really nice fans and lighting! Also very quiet and good software to control everything.

    Nice all inclusive liquid cooling package

    This CPU cooling package has everything you need to convert from an air cooled setup for your CPU (both Intel and AMD). It's extremely quiet since it uses magnetic levitation cooling fans on the radiator for reduce friction and noise. It also has a newer version of the original Corsair pump for quieter operation. My only complaint is that the hoses are somewhat short and since this is a sealed closed loop cooling system they cannot be changed. Check your requirements if you have a custom or very large case. Note this is not designed for cooling anything other than your processor (not for video card, memory etc.. . @@@@@@@

    Works great! My old one started failing so I picked up this one and even when my old was new my CPU ran hotter. With this one my CPU temp is only about 1-2C above ambient. I OC'd my CPU to 4.7 and the temp was still below 50c. The CPU (6700k) wasn't stable but the temp was great. Remember there are settings in the iCue software to change the fan profile. I think the default is quiet for the fans and balanced for the pump. I could could only hear a slight change in the fans and no change in the pump even though the software showed a reduction in temp and increase in speed. I am very satisfied with this product. FYI the old Corsair was still within the 5 yr warranty and Corsair stood behind it and is sending a replacement. Great company!
