    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

    This is my 3rd AIO and it works great. I wish I would of got a larger one but oh well. I replaced the corsair fans with Noctuas but the unit functions great. Easy setup and can be mounted nicely. Cooling a i7700k at 5gz.

    I bought this on impulse honestly, but it was a good upgrade, I’m currently using the x299 chipset which can get pretty hot under load and the 280mm of cooling rad is keeping my CPU comfortably cool on a 4.5 GHz OC

    Running this on a Ryzen 7 2700x at 5ghz turbo with no issues. It’s runs pretty constant at 52c-62c which is not an issue at all even on the most demanding After Effects rendering.

    I highly recommend this cooler if you’re on a budget, keeps my my cpu at around 30 degrees Celsius compared to around 70 with the stock cooler. Even at full load my cpu stays cool!!!

    If your case supports it, get this one. It's got an interesting setup using a USB header for RGB. I like that it uses sata power for fans and you can control everything through corsair icue.

    My first water cooling unit. Easy straightforward installation. So far working great. RGB lighting was a bonus, pretty good set of preselects to use and modify.

    I am using this cooler for my i7 8700k. I play a lot of games and this cooler keeps my processor at a low temperature. If you are getting any of the i7 8th gen or 9th gen, this cooler would be great.

    Excellent cooling for my system. Corsair needs to do a bit of verification for its cases. Extremely tight fan placement in top of Air 740 case. Otherwise no problem installing unit.

    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.

    Keeps my i7 7700k nice and cool even during moderate overclocking. Control software is great when paired with other Corsair products since they updated it, and it doesn't crash any more.

    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.

    Easy to install, works so much better than advertised, just an amazing all around product. Dropped my temps 10-15 C over air cooling. What more could you ask for?!?

    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.

    Create product for not that much money. I wanted to build a gaming machine and I was worried the conventional cooling would not be good enough if I over clock.

    This is the best liquid cooling system I’ve found at this price point, temps have been running super low and I always trust Corsair products.

    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.

    It's quiet and it does a good job cooling my CPU. My temps are usually no higher than 36 degrees Celsius (I'm not overclocking)

    Installed in a NZXT H500i and looks great. Software works well with the lighting. Installation with an Intel setup was a breeze.
