Having owned a Corsair H110i, the Raijintek is a competent cooler. It looks great, and works well. The translucent tubing and coolant dyes make it eye-catching as well. I would say the tubing is very prone to kinking if the bend is mildly acute, and this can cause the CPU to overheat. Room for improvement there, otherwise satisfied with the cooler. Prepare for the prospect of deinstall and reinstall to cut the tubes to optimum lengths to avoid kinking. Monitor regular first few days after installation, since a static non-kinking position may slowly turn into a kink. I've downgraded the review to a 3 based on the ease of kinking on the cables. I would recommend Raijinket supply a space set of cables or a less-kinkable tube for future editions. It looks fantastic, but for the faffing around factor, a NZXT Kraken or Corsair would of done the job easier. Update 22.09.16. My cooler leaked. CCL are arranging an RMA, and fortunately because of the backplate on the 980ti, the leak didn't damage the PCB, although this is only through luck. I'm sorry to say my experience with this cooler has not been good. It looks great, and the thermal dynamics are good. I want to like it. The kinkable tubes whilst annoying, I can forgive. Leaking onto a £600+ GPU, unfortunately that is unforgivable. I'm going to go back to Corsair's trusty H100i. Before I bought the Raijintek I did read some reviews of leaks based on damaged enclosures, although I hoped they were isolated incidences. Sadly, I was wrong. I have revised my score to 1 star, because an AIO water cooler failure is not acceptable.

Highly underestimated AIO water cooler. It looks beautiful, and runs very cool. Just a little difficult to install, and it sags on the motherboard.

Great cooler for anyone that wants to get into liquid cooling. This is an open loop that comes pre-filled and ready to install, you can leave it like it is or expand to cool GPU or chipset. Comes with fan controller but did not come with the three liquids stated in add. Best looking mounting plate I have seen as well as the easiest to install.
