Rated 4 out of 5 by Phil18Wales Don't use on highend chips
I bought this for my first ever PC build thinking it would be adequate at cooling a 4790K i7 OC 4.6GHz, but with a Noctua NF-A14 attached it can barely keep it below 80c at full 2000rpm with no over clock.
I'm replacing it with the Corsair H115i 280mm cooler
This cooler is adequate with a great profile and good looks for a much lower end CPU

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mdsp a little expensive, but effective
does the job, MASSIVE 140mm area, fan a little noisy however

Rated 4 out of 5 by iWareDesigns Does the job, but too noisy for me.
I thought I would give water cooling a go in my new small form factor PC. This CPU cooler worked well, kept the CPU nice and cool as expected. However, I could not live with the noise that the pump made, it sounded like a 3.5" hard drive spinning permanently. I have since changed it for a Noctua Air Cooler which works just as good and is a lot quieter. A colleague of mine is also experiencing the same problem with his Hydro CPU Cooler. The hardware worked perfectly, it is high quality, but I just personally did not like the noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dragonsword Great all in one cooling
Decided to make the move from an air cooler to this all in one water cooler. Excellent cooling ability over my air cooler and very quiet too. My only issue was it needed a 140mm fan case which I forgot to check, so had to buy a new case that would take it. Though that's my fault so it's not an issue if you check your case can fit one in. Overall excellent cooling and very quiet.

Thought i would retire my old H50 - so opted for the H90.
I have a 2500k OC to 4.6 - the H90 kepps this at 25 degrees idle and tops out at 49 degrees after several hours on BF4.
Several runs of Intelburn test at 100% only raise it up too 52degrees .
Fantastic overall - no complaints.
Just to add - i replaced the stock fan for a Phanteks 140xp and am using it as an EXHAUST configuration in the roof of my corsair C70 - i tested both intake and exhaust and exhaust was slightky cooler - hope that helps:)
