I never installed this in my new system build as I later found that it cannot be software controlled. All Corsair coolers ending with an "i" come with Corsair link software for monitoring temps etc. This item did not. I'm sure it's a fine cooler otherwise.
I received this item last week and installed it. Going from a cooler master heatsink and twin fans to cool my Intel processor, but it was still hitting 61c under a heavy load. The difference with the corsair hydro cool was immediately much cooler even with over clocking my 3.6ghz quad core Intel processor to 3.8ghz with a 4.2ghz turbo My processor under a heavy load is now running at 42-45 Celsius what a difference, and considering corsairs great reputation for quality and performance this is a must have for those who want to keep the systems up and running for many years even overclocked this is a must have
Which is great as I have an Asus Micro motherboard. The Star Tech 630 watt power supply I bought at Overstock will work with the case better than the case I have since the power supply is to be installed at the bottom giving more fan potential than the 8 available space noted for the case. Heat rises; Which is nice since it can rise to the right side of the case where two fans can be mounted and on top where two more fans can be mounted. The side you can't see on the right side of the case is important where two fans can be installed because hard drives create heat, too. The case is lightweight and the design is incredible.
