from completed build My take on the stormtrooper look
Does it's job well. My only complaint is the noise of the fans. I believe that Corsair really should stop gimping those who buy their products with crappy fans. Is it really that much more expensive to put quality fans in with your coolers, Corsair?

I have not been disappointed by the gold standard of AIO CPU coolers. The braided sheaths on the tubes look very good in-person, and I personally like the design of the pump better than most other pump designs, including Corsair's other designs. Like most reviews point out, the stock fans get very loud if they ever ramp up at all, so I replaced them with the obvious choice: SP120 Quiets. The software isn't great either, but I rarely touch it anyways, so I can overlook this fault. I'm also a little disappointed the cooler only comes with pre-applied thermal paste; I feel that a small tube should always be included with a CPU cooler.

Have a lot of issues with Corsair Link software. Thinking of replacing with NZXT Kraken x52.

Phenomenal at cooling, BUT it's pretty noisy when the pump kicks on, and it's not a pleasant noise. Whiny.

Looks pretty slick with the braided hoses and love the RGB feature. Also it isn't that loud with the blue SP120'S that I put on.

Keeps my CPU chilly and looks nicer, in my opinion, than most air coolers out there. My only complaint is the little micro usb port on the bottom that is needed in order to monitor and control the cooler in software. In my unit, the port actually seems to have come loose and is now pushed up into the block area, so now the cable won't stay seated. It's annoying, but it also works out well because now I have one less cable in my system to worry about hiding.

Originally I was going to go with a traditional air cooled cpu but then I thought: "screw it, lets go liquid cooled because why the hell not". A decision that I do not regret at all. It was however, one of the biggest pains in my *** during the build. I mounted and unmounted the damn radiator about 4 or 5 times. Initially I had mounted it with the hoses on the left side, which after doing so I discovered the exhaust fan blades were touching the hoses. So out it came, flipped around, flipped the fans around so that the fan wires were once again facing the back of the case and then mounted again. It was then I realized my second mistake. I had not yet installed the optical drive, and now the hoses were blocking the bays. Out the radiator came, in the optical drive went, and back in again with the radiator. But I still wasn't off the ride, as I then realized the radiator was blocking the top cable access holes that I needed to get to. So once again while contemplating suicide by ingestion of cpu coolant, I unmounted the accursed radiator and did what I needed. I also replaced the fans it comes with for the Corsair Air Series fans after reading many reviews that the stock cooler fans are much too loud. Plus the corsairs fit my color scheme much better. After all was said and done, I was quite happy with the result, but next time I build a pc with a liquid cooler I am most definitely mounting the radiator at the very end.

This cooler works very well but it has a couple of issues. The pump is surprisingly loud and due to the way the pump operates, the quiet mode is actually more annoying than the performance mode due to the pitch of the noise it creates. I also had trouble getting corsair link to recognize this. It ended up being a driver issue, but there really should have been better instruction on how to install the software and get everything up and running.
I'm only taking off one star because despite the slightly annoying noise (not noticeable unless I listen for it) and the initial issues with the software, this cooler keeps my cpu at ~65 C even under full load at 1.35 volts.
