This review is from: Corsair 120mm Hydro Series H80i Digital High Performance Rad All-In-One Liquid CPU Cooler (Personal Computers)
I have an Asus Z77 Sabertooth motherboard and a coolermaster CM690 II Advanced case. I'll make a list of the issues/non issues I encountered: -

I have read in reviews before that there are sometimes missing accessories with this product and yes I did have a few missing ones but nothing essential. I had 4 washers instead of 8 but .. it's a couple of washers; I don't think writing 10 emails complaining to corsair is necessary when it's fine without them. I was suppose to get 8 small screws but I didn't get any, I never worked out where I would have actually put them though. There were 4 additional (unnecessary) pieces included that didn't fit into anything.

Secondly, I have 8GB (2x 4GB) of Corsair Dominator ram with the airflow accessory. The airflow doesn't fit on comfortably anymore. If I upgraded to 16GB of ram it'll be a tight squeeze to get it in, if it fits at all.

Other than that it was fine. The thermal armour doesn't really get in the way.

I have a 3.5 GHz Core i7-3770k which idles at 19-20 degrees with this cooler. (Cleaned off the pre installed cooling paste and put on Arctic Silver). Playing Bioshock Infinite on maximum settings and 1080p it sits at 29 degrees; fans are nowhere near full speed. I do not have it overclocked.

It is not noisy unless you have your computer right beside your head with the side of the case opened, in a silent room.

Worked first time I turned it on, no problems.

Very happy with my purchase

EDIT:
Just so you know the 19-20 degrees was also due to the weather conditions, in the hot summer months it sat around 24/26 degrees, back down to 20 now (I live in Northern Ireland).

Just to clarify with the RAM, it was the pipes coming from the pump on the CPU that touched my RAM. They now touch the air cooler that came with the RAM so I'm not worried.

No problems whatsoever with this cooler to date
