Pain in the neck to install in Corsair 450D. Impossible to add/remove fans after radiator is installed when used in conjunction with Asus P9X79 LE motherboard. Good performance, just a little bit better than H100/i but might not be worth the hassle.
This cooling solution is not the best, but it is very good. It keeps my overclocked FX 8350 @4.8GHz on 35°C with 70% fanspeed. The only critic point is that sometimes you hear the pump and that there are very much vibrations if the fans spin at 100%.
It's a pretty good CPU cooler, it has nice cooling features and the SP120L included fans are just great... But I used to have a Corsair H100i, and I'm pretty used to the Corsair Link, I think that the H105 misses the Corsair Link feature and I couldn't monitor and change the settings of it. But, it offers a slightly better cooling then the H100i. PS: I use my H105 in push-pull configuration.
++: It's very quiet :)
This cooler is way better than the NZXT Kraken! I love how the cooler looks and the head doesn't stay lit when the PSU is on the Computer actually has to start up.
Not as much of a pain to install as I thought it might be! Fit just fine into my case, and is keeping my CPU at 26C at idle. Plus it just looks good!
A good cooler, however changed the stock fans since I want the lighting that came with the Enemax fans
Massive radiator, good performance. Seems sturdy and of good quality. Easy install.
The stock fans are a little loud for my liking but the cooler definitely does its job. Build quality feels very nice and installation was simple. Replacing the fans was also very easy.
Installation was fairly easy I would say. The included directions were kind of vague but there are plenty of videos to watch. At first I put the pump on the cpu sideways and and to reseat it. Still worked out fine and is keeping the 4790k cool. Only sounds like a jet when I start up the pc or shut down or under super super heavy load.
The included fans seem decent. I can barely hear them and the case is like 1 foot away from me. Plan on adding 2 corsair silent fans to complete a push/pull config
Keeps temps nice and cool. Fans are a but loud when maxed out spinning though.
