I've been looking for a maintenance free water cooling solution for my CPU(1155). I've read many reviews of Corsair's H80. Most are good, but most of the complaints are about the noise. It sounds like a legitimate complaint instead of people just nitpicking. Many attribute it to air bubbles in the radiator and the best option is to send it back for a new model.
I just wanted to know, are there any comparable solutions?
I have an H80. First thing is that the fans that come with this cooler are crap. If you decide to get one then I would highly suggest replacing the fans with Nexus Real Silent 12cm fans (D12SL). Even with the D12SLs this cooler is still a bit loud on the medium/high speed settings. On low the noise is acceptable, but you lose cooling performance. If I had it to do again I would go with a really good air cooler with high quality fans for more quiet performance.
