Amazon Customer
Nothing much else to say, did what it was supposed to do, I bought mine at Best Buy, my Dad was going to get this but changed his mine.
Indiana Customer
When I had the CPU overclocked to 4.7Ghz it topped out at 62°C at full load and still idled at room temp.

Style Name: H60
NOTE: This review is for the H60. The Amazon product page lists all the Corsair water coolers together on one page. Therefore, regardless of which model you are looking at, you are going to see the reviews for all the different models listed together. If you are looking at the H100, you are still going to see my review for the H60. That's just the way Amazon does things.

**************************************

Pros: Rivals the some of the best air coolers out there, no maintenance like traditional water coolers, SUPER easy installation, seems to be good quality.

Cons: Instructions are lacking (see my installation tips below), must buy additional fans to unlock its full potential (I didn't ding it for this in my rating because I knew this when I decided to purchase it), no screws for a second fan, an intake setup will screw up the airflow in your case so expect to play with the case fans a little to get it right. Ideally, I would like to knock off half a star for the instructions.

General comments: The build quality is excellent however I did notice that a couple of the fins were slightly bent right out of the box. The threads on female thumb screws and the male thumb screws did not match up very well, so I still had to use a screwdriver after tightening them as much as possible with my hands. No big deal. The included fan has an annoying whining noise at full speed but I had planned on replacing it anyways. As with any high speed fan, I think the noise level would be reduced significantly by an anti-vibration gasket which can be purchased for about $5. At the time of writing this review, they are not on Amazon but Frozencpu has them (Feser 120mm Xvibe Noise Absorber).

I didn't keep the stock fan.

Style Name: H100 Verified Purchase
Bought the H100 with some gift cards received from Christmas. Item arrived quick as always with Amazon Prime.

Everything necessary was in the box to install. Wiped off the weak thermal paste and added a dash of Arctic Silver for good measure. Had to remove the mobo out of my HAF 932 because of a horrible cutaway that does not allow for anything to be changed without removal. Backplate went on without a hitch and installed the necessary standoffs for the 1155 CPU. I seated the waterblock/pump unit firmly in place and attached with the required screws. Tightened the screws using the uniform pressure method recommended by Corsair in the install guide.

Now, my only complaint I really have with system is in the next area, installing the radiator. The holes for the mounting screws are located directly over the radiator which is not a big deal except for the fact that you run the screw into the radiator fins. But there was no issue of hitting the actual tubes that the cooling agent run though. The paint also caused an issue here though as it seemed to pool in the screw threads which made it hard to start screws. Making the task of mounting this more difficult than it really needed to be. I resolved this by running one of the screws through all the holes to clear the paint out. This made it much easier to install afterwards.

I love the fans that came with the unit as they move a ton of air while still holding a high static pressure, but I still decided to swap these out for a set of CM Excalibur 120mm fans set in a push configuration mounted to the top of the case. They also move a high volume of air while holding a high static air charge (Not to mention they look better too).

Style Name: H70
At first appearance, I was extremely excited about purchasing a Corsair H-70 Liquid CPU cooler. I totally liked the idea of how a massive CPU air cooler would no longer restrict the overall air flow in my new CM HAF 932. Also, just the thought of much less weight on my motherboard was very attractive to me. Finally, when I read the benchmarks on the Corsair H-70, and how it did a fairly good job of cooling, I was sold on it.

After reading many, many glowing reviews and absolutely stellar reports about Corsair's Liquid cooled H-70, I eagerly purchased one and installed it in my computer.

It worked well for about 30 days. Suddenly, one day when I can home I smelled the very strong odor of something similar to anti-freeze. My computer would not boot, and at first, I could not figure out what was wrong. Then I opened my computer case...

What I discovered was shocking. The Corsair H70 had sprung a leak at the point where the hose attaches to the water pump. I still could not figure out how and why I kept smelling a strong automobile anti-freeze like odor...and then I realized the smell was from the liquid the Corsair H-70 was dumping on my motherboard. After doing a little more research, I discovered that Corsair does not use water but Propylene glycol, also called 1,2-propanediol or propane-1,2-diol, is an organic compound (a diol or double alcohol) with formula C3H8O2 or HO-CH2-CHOH-CH3 as the liquid inside their H-70 liquid CPU cooler. I am thankful that the leak only killed my motherboard. Propylene glycol is toxic to small animals. Veterinary data indicate that propylene glycol is toxic to dogs with a 50% chance of being lethal at doses of 9mL/kg, although the figure is higher for most laboratory animals (LD50 at levels of 20mL/kg).
