Corsair Hydro Series makes it easy to go liquid.
Easy installation, zero maintenance.
You no longer need to invest into finicky modular watercooling systems to get serious CPU cooling performance. Each Hydro Series Liquid CPU Cooler is a sealed, closed-loop system that comes pre-filled and never needs refilling. Tubing is constructed from low-evaporation FEP for a long lifespan. Even the thermal compound is pre-applied. You'll be up and running in minutes.
The latest cooling technology.
Both the H80 and the H100 include a low-profile, light-weight cooling unit with a micro-channel copper cold plate and a split-flow manifold. The result of all this attention to fluid dynamics is CPU cooling that's remarkably efficient, with a total noise level that's lower than most stock CPU fans.

At my local Fry's, I decided on a Antec 920 Khuler with a much smaller radiator + x2 120mm fans and could not be happier...so much more quiet, rubber tubing, slick look and customizable LED on the unit + software for fan control. While browsing for a new replacement, I noticed about 6-8 H100 and other Hydro series liquid coolers with return stickers on them probably with the same pump problem.
Save yourself the headache and money, stay away from this unit.
Also - on the installation for H100, I noticed the the screws provided are too long and bend the radiator fins when installing your fans.
With this cooler, Max (stable) OC is 4.3, with a breakdown OC of about 4.5. Any higher than that and the BIOS wont POST, even though the temps are fine. This brings my load temps @ stock clocks to about 50c. Load temps @ 4.3 are ~ 58-60c. Idle temps are around 20c for both.
My lack of POST and instability above 4.5GHz may be due to my RAM, who's base frequency is 2/6 (800MHz) @ above 1066 when synced.
To put it bluntly, great cooler. Simple to set up, but make sure your case has space for it. If you had a large circular fan where you're putting this, expect to have large gaps on either side of this cooler (I'm using the Thermaltake Level 10GT).
Side note, I live in Alaska. When I open the window next to my case I get a max temp of 25c @ 4.3GHz @ full load, 8c idle.
If you are bulding a new rig and are considering this unit, I would think about it. The only cool aspect of it, is the looks, and the fact that it won't take much space, allowing for more airflow iside the rig, but you should also know that this unit's hoses are not very flexible and can be a pain the butt to re-route them. If you already own a nice fan cooler. Save your money.
This unit leaks. I was dusting my PC when I noticed some fluid stains on the fans. To my surprise, the fluid was coming from the so called "sealed" radiator. I noticed that the fans had gotten louder and I had been having some heat issues, so I thought it was due to built dust in my PC, it is a good thing I decided to check it when I did; the radiator is right above my GTX570's. Save your money. If you want to water cool, spend the extra cash for a real water cooling system. This is a joke. My Coleer Master V8 out-performs this unit by a long stretch and it is safer to use.
Browsing some forums people have found that lowering the voltage on the pump by putting a diode in-line with its power cord gets rid of the buzzing noise. This effectively slows the pump to about 95% of its normal operating speed. The thread can be found here for anyone interested.
If you are like me, I got this cooler because it would have been better cooling that fans and quieter at the same time. I am giving it 2 stars because it does by far the best cooling I have ever had. Running my 4.4ghz 3570k I5 at 27 degrees C idle and kept it under 80degrees C when running Prime 95. The noise is annoying, but if you have an already loud case from fan noise then it will not bother you.
