Used this for about 8 months and it started to leak around the pump area work well but in not up to the job in a long hall i replace it with a CORSAIR CWCH50 Hydro Water Cooler...and never look back

I used it for 6 month, not so good especially at low speed fan. Once you increase the fan speed it becomes very noisy!

# Good CPU Cooler BUT MOBO CooksGraham 2010-11-10 06:13
As with most replacement ccolers you have a trade off.With Sttandard cooler you have reduced cooling available for overclocking yet you still have the mobo components cooled by the same fan.With this cooler solution you get amazing cooling if maybee a little noisy when ramped up,I use it on a intel Quad 6600 running at almost 4gig (per core) overclock on a top end Lanpsrty Mobo.The Cpu runs idle at 28-30deg and Sressed when benchmarking at 48-50 so really good.The biggest problem is, even when used in a huge custom case with 2 x 250 mm case fans and three 120 rear fans (One of which adds pull action to the Radiator of the coolit) i have a major problem with the motherboard cooling sometimes hitting in excess of 60 deg which causes all sorts of issues. So to conclued it is a great product If your not doing extreem Overclocking. BUT i Intend to replace it with a Noctua NH-C12P SE14, AM2/AM3/775/1156/1366 which has a 140mm downward facing fan to keep the mobo temps under control.
