Corsair Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H80i. Could somebody please explain this liquid cooler a little more? I heard that its a all in one liquid cooler, no pumps or resorvoirs needed. Also I have a mid tower case with 120mm fans, I was planning on placing the radiator where the rear exhaust fan is at, I notice that there's a bottom piece that worries me it might hit the case.

My mid size tower: Rosewill Redbone U3: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU liquid cooler: Corsair Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H80i

It should fir no issues, the bottom part is the liquid for that specific model of closed loop. The way it works is you never need to add colant, or pumps, simply attach the radiator and then attach the water block and you are good to go for its lifetime. If it dosent fit you can move it to any 120mm fan port.

Looking at the pics on Newegg that cooler should fit in the back 120mm fan spot. But I can't say for sure and have never used a Mid Tower case either I only build my rigs in Full Tower cases I find any thing smaller to be just to cramped for me.

I did have the Corsair H100i cooling my i5 3570K that I built in January but about 2 month's later the LED lighting went out and then last month the pump went out so that was the first and last sealed water cooler I will use.

As for what they mean by "no pumps or reservoirs needed" is that the pump and reservoir is built into the unit so they is no need for a separate pump and reservoir.

Personally if you really want to get into water cooling I would look into a XSPC kit http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g/c83/s137/list/p1/b49/... they are in my opinion much better than any of the sealed versions although they do cost a little more plus I thing they look way better.

In most cases custom loops like that are better, but if you only cool the cpu its really not worth it for the price, especially with first time liquid builders.

Yeah both of you helped a lot with understanding how this works, I really don't feel like having to set up some big cooling kit. So this seems more simple & a hell of a lot cheaper.
