    I found the results to be off in comparison to the older reviewed Corsair AIOs, at least during idle. Do you think the 4790k needs Delidded and cleaned up?

    Edit:I just read it has zero fan mode up to 40c...don't mind me :confused:

    Had a Corsair H110i for 6 months after building my last rig, 2 of them died on me in that time. Im not moving away from Noctua anytime soon.

    Sure hope the "Pro" series have improved on reliability as it uses an updated pump design vs the non-Pro one.

    Right now, the H110i Pro is the same price as the H115i Pro on amazon (US & Canada), so ordered the later as it's a no-brainer. We'll see how it goes.

    Slowly but surly they are loosing that stupid gap around the sides of the fan that loose any pressure the fans have built up to aid in the air flow through radiators.
    Hopefully it will be gone soon but its nice to see it shrink.
    I think they are slowly removing that bad design because its getting smaller and smaller.

    or just fit these.

    I only ever owned one closed loop water cooler (a Seidon XL120.) It's the one I'm still using. Bought back in 2013 and it's still working fine on an almost 24/7 machine. I wonder when it's finally gonna dry up.

    boss, i think there is miss type
    "The Hydro Series H100i PRO is backed by a two-year warranty and the CORSAIR worldwide customer service and technical support network. Check our review here btw."
    the h100i pro is 5years warranty right ?

    i experiencing same things with H80i v2 pump that suddenly just dead after less than 3months
    but the good things is that my local corsair RMA is really nice, their process the exchange hassle free

    i learn, seems rather than placing the cooler-block aligning with the corsair-text (horizontal)
    its seems much better to set the cooler-block with pipe in the downward not side or up (the text should be vertical)

    it just basic physic, that way more easier for liquid-cooler to flow/cycling rather than set pipe on side/up, that seems need more push for water to cycle

    so far my current unit been 24/7 on performance mode for like a year+ (i figure out no need to pick quite-mode as the noise not that different, also it have 5year warranty anyway, incase the pump fail i will just RMA it )

    I don't really trust them much either. When I had an H110, I came home once to the fans not running because of a Corsair software error.
    My NH-D15 is virtually silent during normal operation. I've never had any self-contained liquid setup that was quiet in comparison.

    amazed how well the nh-u9s did

    just bought one for my in win 901 mini itx build to replace the excellent wraith cooler that came with my 2700x

    i figure the wraith can max out the 2700x in a case with lots of airflow and cooling, but all cores only hit 3800 when running cinebench in the 901 mini itx case

    i hope to squeeze a few hundred more megahertz out of it with this cooler

    i am not oc'ing, but just depending on the asrock 470 board's power boost and xfr implementation

    Had my H110i gt for over 3 years now, apart from a scale issue within the first 12 months which was fixed by changing the coolant to Mayems clear coolant its ran flawlessly ever since.

    I had a H100i fail after a year. RMA and IIRC they sent me the same one. It failed after 4 months. Then they replaced it with a H100i v2 and has been working fine for almost 2 years now. At least Corsair's after sales customer service is top notch. First time I did mail in the H00i but it cost me 25 euro shipping. Second time, I told them that shipping is expensive so they offered me another solution. Cut the tubes from the radiator and providing them with photos for evidence before they sent me the H100i v2. Got to keep the extra (noisy) fans from the defective one. BTW, I thought warranty was 2 years (EU minimum) and when they told me it was 5 years I was surprised.

    I currently own an H150i pro for about an month and some weeks now,so far it been working great, and working very well with my I7 7800x that is overclocked to 4.7ghz. I not worried about corsair support, since they been doing an good job for me in the past. At-least on my end the software haven't been giving me any trouble.

    Prior I had an Thermalright SB-E Extreme which had an problem with keeping my 7800x heat down, even at stock with both fans on max, as well being annoying to remove and put back on, due to the mounting kit being worn out from old age. I glad that it was much easier to get the H150i pro on to the processor, after getting the rest of it onto the case.

    Speaking of the fans, the ML120 fans are so nice, and quiet, that i grab 3 more for my case fans, after finding an good deal on them.
