Good price for a Corsair liquid CPU cooling system. This is new and not refurb so gets 5 year warranty.

Best liquid cooler out there for a decent price. Can't go wrong with this cooler

I have one of these and it works brilliantly. On my new build, the CPU (4770k) was running at a toasty 42C on idle before I had one of these, now it's 23C and never gets above 47C on an intense workout.

It was a cinch to fit in my Corsair Carbide 540 case. Great price for this, I just beat it (but by less than a pound) with Flubit.

On the plus side click and collect if you want it straight away with Maplin

You think 42c is toasty?! oO

I wanna get one of these, but I'm not sure if my case will accommodate it. What's Maplin customer service like in case I'm wrong?

I've bought stuff from them before and its been good. The fact you can take it in store if there is a problem makes it easier.

For Idle that is quite high.

Good price, heat added here, buy this to have heat removed from your cpu.

Was about to get a h80i for a similar cost. Will do this instead. Thanks/heated.

At idle I do.

Well maybe I've been letting mine run too hot then!

I believe most if not all of the early problems it had are long gone, so at this price it's definitely worth it, IF you have the room in your case of course.

42C isn't toasty. processes are fine up to 80c, over 90 gets a but dicey. had an i5 2500k up to 95c and toasted it lol, pc in generally wasn't working properly as none of the safety features and alerts were working properly at the time

I'm not concerned that it was 42C on idle, more that it had less room for maneuvre when I started flexing it's muscles. Without the i100, I was in the high 80s when I used it for something taxing, now it never gets above 47C at full tilt, even on a 12% overclock profile that is completely stable (I have tried for more, but the protection systems kick in). My Carbide 540 case is very roomy with lots of ventilation, idle/in use temps may well have been a fair few degrees higher with a smaller or less well ventilated case.

Not all CPUs are fine up to 80­°C, just about every CPU model has a different max thermal temperature rating, some are as low as 60° after which they become unstable or try to shut themselves down. For example anything over 73° I believe is dodgy for a 2500k.

Pretty sweet for an all in one soultion

cool voted hot!

Also available through Amazon... Same price through the Maplin seller... Or an extra 2.40 through Amazon (and marginally better customer service)

Should call my Core2Quad nicely.

Yep and if you ever had a AMD Phenom 1100T they didn't like going above 62c which is chilly for other CPUs!

Just be careful with the screws supplied!!!

Hot.

Or you can buy it on amazon for £77.39 and probably 3 or £4 less after Flubit.

If you go for the H100 don't replace the thermal paste, the factory application is perfect and it's a good quality paste. And if you upgrade you CPU in the future; read the latest thermal paste reviews. And stay away from liquid metals, they transfer heat very well but are just too corrosive.

One piece of advice i can give for this cooler, change the thermal paste!! Some arctic cooler will bring the temps down greatly

Can anybody tell me if the offer is in-store too?

I just built my pc yesterday. Running i7 4790K with the Corsair H80i hydro cooler. and minenis 32 degrees on idle. Thats fine aint it ? i mean 42 foes sound high for idle.

great cooler, great price and at Maplin? Didn't think Maplin would stock something as new and futuristic as this!
They are still adjusting from floppy disc to dvd

Banned

I have one of these, brilliant

I have this with a 4790k overclocked to 4.7ghz. Idle temp is 25c, 65c max load. My only advice would be to change the stock fans. They're really loud and not very efficient. I replaced mine with Noctuas. Also as mentioned above, change the thermal paste to something a little better.

Edited by: "SilkySean" 15th Dec 2014

Buoght the H60 when I put my rig together. Simply stopped working the other day. While it worked it was brilliant, not so brilliant when it simply stops working. Odd as its a sealed unit that supposedly never requires opening up to replace the water and so on.

I guess the fact that my i5 had welded itself into the board socket was a clue it was running too hot.....oops

That's an excellent price for this cpu cooler

For the money, isn't it simpler and at least as good to go with a high-end air cooler? Especially if the fans are noisy and need replacing ... I went for a Phobya triple rad instead of an H110i as wanted to be certain of maximum cooling

Interested in other's experiences and views on water vs air at this budget ...

Great bit of kit if you have the room

I think it probably was... X)

Good price. Currently running an old H70, and have just purchased a 2nd hand H100i off eBay to use with my new PC build. Decided to pick up some Aerocool Dead Silence fans to go with it.

That's toasty for idle. If you can afford a decent CPU then the MB/Case/Fans should also be pretty decent so yeah 42 is high.

I normally get about 30-32 idle on air with my last 3 i5s

*non sequitur alert*

'You should have decent components to compliment your decent processor, therefore 42c is high'

Doesn't compute (pun intended).

To some 42c idle may be high, but it will do absolutely zero damage to a processor. Surely it's temps under load that matter? Granted high idle temps will likely correlate with load temps on the high side, but as long as they're below the manufacturers recommended max (e.g. 75c for the 4670k) then no worries.

Just out of curiosity, which Noctua fans did you replace with?

The point I was making is that if you are building a rig with that level of HW you are probably not going to be installing it in a cheapo case you got free from your office 5 years ago with a minimal fan/airflow set-up. So I was assuming the 42 degree temp idle was high UNLESS it was put in such a misconfiguration set-up in which case 42 degr would be normal.

It wasn't directed at the person with the high idle more of a generalisation without asking/going into what the chaps setup was as he obv wasn't posting his temps to have someone diagnose it.
