I have no problem making the statement that this water cooling unit offers a lot of "bang for the buck" as well as other features that can appeal to many. For all tests except overclocked load, it performed within a few degrees of the Noctua NH-D14, which is more expensive than the Corsair H60. It's very compact, requires little to no maintenance, is quiet, and performs well even for those who plan to overclock. However, it may not be for those looking to perform very extreme overclocks, as the performance and effectiveness of the cooler begins to degrade as the heat output of the processor increases, and one would be better off purchasing a high-end air cooler that can keep up with the extreme heat loads.

They need to move to a H120 and then we'll be cookin with gas. Right now these coolers can be beaten by good air systems and have to make as much noise as the air systems just to keep up. It's good, just not great yet.
Managing to jump the price a bit but give decent x2 and x3 rads would highly improve the product and really cause this market to take off.
Even Intel must be contemplating a 120 rad cooler for their future CPU's. Those octa cores gonna get hot!
