- It’s quiet.
- This is not reliable at all.
- This is the second one to go bad in approximately one year apart. First one was replaced by ME under warranty. Now this one has died about 4 months outside warranty. Cooling is in a game system built using all Corsair stuff. I would never buy another Corsair cooler again. Junk.

- Decent temps for what I think is just a naturally hot 3570k. Under Intel Burn Test, at 4.5ghz with an offset voltage of 0.15Vdc I get around 77 ~ 78° C. Idle is around 25 ~ 30° C. Pump is quiet. Stock fans aren't ridiculously loud. Aesthetics are nice.
- Installation can be tricky in a tight case.
- I'd say the overal performance. Not saying it's terrible. Could need to keep playing with thermal pastes. But I have a friend with a CM212 pulling the same temps as me. Again, could be my chip is hot. Isn't the best overclocker. Tl:dr Was expecting slightly cooler temps; I would still purchase again. Would recommend to a friend.

- It works like a water cooler, it has water (or mineral oil or something) and it flows. Transfers heat to its radiator really well, the dual fans make its job a lot more effective.
- Painful to install if it's your first time
- Amazing water cooling unit if you can afford it.

- - quiet - clean appearance - small form factor fits nicely in my mITX build
- - stock fans loud - stock thermal paste
- The water pump on this liquid cooler is virtually silent and once you replace the stock fans with a quieter PWM fan option you are set for noise. Had an issue with the stock thermal compound adhering evenly to the surface of the processor but once i removed it and put some arctic silver paste on the cpu all was good. Originally I was getting 70 degree C while stress testing with prime95, after replacing thermal paste temps dropped down to low 50's.
