This cooling fan has been quite effective. I am running an i7 CPU, which generally run pretty warm. This fan has kept the temperature down quite a bit even under heavy load. I would definitely recommend this product, but if you aren't very comfortable disassembling and reassembling your desktop computer I would suggest that you have a professional make the installation.
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
