Many people buy this for many reasons. Some(like myself) have always been intrigued by water cooling but weren't quite ready to go all out with a custom loop so this is a nice way to get your feet...wet. Some like how small the blocks are compared to the massive top end air cooling devices they stay competitive with. Some thinks logic dictates water < air no matter the reviews, and it's a hard fight to argue otherwise.
I'll bring up size again for all the small form factorerz with extremely small spaces to work with who, quite frankly, cannot get better cooling on air than the H series provides them. All these and more backed by a company with a long, proven dedication to customer satisfaction before &
after they've got your money as well as an excellent track record containing a considerable number of products accepted to be very high quality in make, durability, and aesthetics and is there really any wonder left in the amount of sales these babies ignited?
Don't forget you've got those who see this ***omg giant thread and are persuaded by us to join us.....And your corsair fanatics who cannot abide another logo resting on top of their cpu when they aren't forced to....PLus random brick & mortar customers persuaded by salespeople and the word "New"......I'm sure I've only listed around 10-20% of the motives behind the sales so far but I'm tired and this would take way too long.^^
