    Works well, just nothing special

    This has been a great cooler so far, it's just not much different than any other AIO liquid coolers out there. The RGB lighting on the block is much more customizable than the older RGB Corsair AIO coolers, but it would have been nice if it came with some LL series RGB fans instead of the stock HDP fans. I got the cooler new and sealed, but some of the radiator fins were already damaged upon taking it out of the box. I had to straighten them myself. If I hadn't been in the spot of already having to run out and get this last minute because the older Corsair AIO cooler I had intended to use wan't interfacing with my motherboard, I would have tried returning it for a new one.

    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 It also has a newer version of the original Corsair pump for quieter operation.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...)

    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.

    Originally I wanted to go with the rgb style of this but when plugged in it adds a nice small yet fabulous look to my tower; works effortlessly and silently .

    The cooler works well, but isn't compatible with Gigabyte's RGB Fusion scheme. You'll have to use Corsair's iCUE software for RGB use.

    Corsair is hands down the best aio cpu cooling option. If you don’t go AIO—try Noctua

    These fans work well, as expected. The water cooling helps.
