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

    This cooler works great keeps my temps down even under heavy load. It works just as good as my H150i PRO 360mm Cooler I have in my Gaming PC

    Was able to push Ryzen 5 1600 to 4.0 GHz with ease. Temps stayed fairly cool and the RGB was a nice added bonus. Came ready with an AM4 mounting bracket and installing it was a breeze.

    I love the low temps that I'm getting with this bad boy. Of course the radiator is quite large so know what you're getting into before you buy. I'm pleased. Would buy it again.

    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!

    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.

    I've used 2 other Corsair hydro series coolers in the past and have had no issues with them. So the bar was set high, but so far after 2 weeks this cooler is delivering. Cool CPU temps aside, overall system temps are down all around thanks to the massive 280mm worth of airflow circulation. And the RGB function is pretty awesome. Recommended if youre a PC enthusiast.

    Got motivated to build me a new system intel based. my orders from newegg came in fine. Only thing my i-7 didnt come with was a Fan an heatsink. Instead of waiting for another week for one part. I decided to go to bestbuy to pick this up. Since my new case was designed with liquid cooling in mind. I said what the heck. Went in smooth no issues it mounted up in a designated spot on my case. Ran some extensive Benchmarks to see how well it would handle. Kept my CPU between 35 to 42C with no issues. As of now I dont see an issue and I checked the cords an connections to make sure it didnt leak before I installed it. Pretty well built. Only time will tell how well it will hold. After installed played about 7hrs of Doom on ultra settings no problem it stayed at a cool temp the whole time.
