    from completed build My Demise!

    Keeps CPU pretty cool on stress it barely made it to 78C, so it does its job! Easy to install!

    Tough decision to choose between CLC 360. Ended up going with this one to have more open space in the case .

    Does a great job keeping the temps low on my i7 7700k. Software is easy to use and easy to monitor temps and fans.

    I love this thing. It's quiet, it keeps my temps down, and EVGA has r a v e reviews when it comes to customer support. I keep the LED off because RGB is retarded and I cant see the damn thing anyway. The stock fans seem to be of ok quality - I find the blades a bit thin for my taste but if I give the fans a push in my hands I can actually feel a noticeable airflow on my palm (something my old cooler master fans never game me). In either case, I replaced the stock fans with the 2 Noctua 140 mm fans and my god they're wonderful (more below on them).

    Equal to its Corsair counterpart. I replaced the stock fans for Noctuas, but performance has been excellent even with fans running at slightly reduced rpm.

    First and foremost, I knocked a star off for the Flow software. I had read mixed reviews about it, and sad to say they are justified.

    My main goal with my build was to buy more cooler than needed so that I could turn the fans down low and still maintain good temps. Flow wants to let you do it, but for the life of me I couldn't get it to work. Only the pump would change fan speeds. I had to configure it to not run on auto and use my motherboards fan control to work. They are still a bit louder than I'm used to, but at least I can't hear the pump.

    Outside of that, temps are great. 33c on idle and 48c max while on load, both gaming and Prime95 tests.

    Keeps the CPU super cool, but the stock EVGA fans are pretty loud, need to purchase better fans, but other than that it works great.
