Pros: Efficient, quiet pump.

Cons: Loud fans.

Bought this as a replacement for the Intel water cooler. Fits nicely in my Obsidian 650d and Mavimus V Formula, however, the fan header placement means the connectors from the cooler are a little squeezed. I thought the fans were a bit noisy so i replaced them with Noctua's, problem solved. Keeps my 3770k 18-22c across the cores at idle, and have never cracked 70c yet @ 4.4. I could go higher I'm sure, but no need really. Also, I put my fans in pull configuration, and there were no screws provided by either the cooler or the Noctua's that were long enough, but I had some lying around that fit. Oh, and the fan holes on top of my 650d don't line up exactly with the coolers, but it does work with a little fiddling. All up i am happy with the results, pity the logo on the pump wasn't RGB, only white, but then I put a white LED fan where the Intel 120mm fan went so it looks quite snazzy now. I would recommend. thumb.gif edit..I used Arctic Silver 5 for the TIM.

Pros: It cools!

Cons: just "barely" fit inside my Half cooler master case, though I could have put the fans on the outside if I desiered.

Big improvement over my old single fan Cooler Master (? model) when I upgraded my CPU from an i7930 to a Xeon x5680, my CPU core temperatures were running at 90 degrees Celsius. Not good at all. The pump light on the old cooler was lit, the fan worked, and it should have worked, but did not. I went to Fry's and bought a new cooler with two fans and a radiator double the size of my old one, success. 45 C +/- idle, and 65~70 C +/- under full load. Seems acceptable to me and it's been running well for the past few days, all day long. I have a video editing workstation and I have it on for very long days. A bit more noise ? possibly, but not objectionable considering 2 GPU's with fans, and 2 other fans in the case & 6 HDD all purring away. The fans and radiator just fit inside the case by a few MM, but I could have mounted the fans on the outside of the case if necessary, I just prefer everything internal and was happy I could get it to fit.
