Great temps on a email@example.com (around 70C under a stress test) easy to install neat software good support from corsair for replacement installation hardware
2 units with pump failure in a 3 year timeframe Mounting hardware is a little cheap, broke one of the standoffs with very little force
i've bought 2 of these and while they do cool very effectively, they seem to be prone to pump failure. Now i may just be unlucky, but I traded for a noctua nh12 and only had to come down to 4.5ghz from 4.6ghz to maintain similar temps. I simply cannot recommend people buy a product that i have had such reliability issues with. Wish i had bought IPR, but then the price wouldnt have been great. Have also noticed that the price of this unit has gone way up over the years. The first one i bought in 2014 was only $85 at the time. The second one in 2016 was $100 and now it is at $145. Simply not worth the price anymore and there are much better options out there.

Sealed assembly Decent cooling for the money Fits different sockets, Intel and AMD alike
May be hard to fit in
Pretty nice cooler. May be a bit of a challenge to install, on my case it got easier when I installed the CPU heatsink before installing the radiator and fans (instead of doing it last as per the instructions). Link software works fine too. Now I can overclock my old i5-3570 and wait a bit more before upgrading it. Temps at 41x multiplier, 1.226V never got over 52° C.

Dropped temperature of CPU from overheating to around 40 degrees while gaming
Fans can be loud, some installation issues, (screws hooking fan to frame could be a bit longer, hoses make it a bit awkward to install over cpu)
Corsair Link worked for me (able to change LED colours, and other assorted features). Only really notice the louder fans when starting up, and while aspects of the installation can be annoying once installed it works just fine.

Cold New Tube Design Multi-CPU support
Driver support in Windows 10 (Not a huge issue, just used to LED lighting) Difficult to install in Micro-ATX case due to hose flexibility and radiator size with fans installed
Great cooler. It keeps the CPU cool, even when gaming. (i5-8400, Battlefield one, Ultra Settings, 40 Degrees C). Drivers don't work, even with Corsair link, so can't change the LED color (but really, who cares). Was difficult to install in my case, as there is not a lot of room, (see Weaknesses).
