Pros Price - $55 Cooling is sufficient, never above 55C No thermal paste required [as there is some pre-applied]
Cons It takes a while for the cooling to start working. When I start the computer CPU is ~37C, then after about 12 minutes it will drop to 25C.
Summary Was skeptical about the "low-end" status of this product, but I have not been disappointed yet. Have it attached to a FX 9370 [link below] which runs very-very hot [65-80C] with just a standard Zalman air cooler [link below]. Now with this cooler I can run FC4 and CoDAW and with the CPU topping at 55c instead of the usual 80C. Please note that no overclocking was done. Installation was a bit of a challenge as the instructions are not 100% clear about what to put where [birds and bees], but I figured it out eventually [15 minutes].
Summary Bought these after checking reviews as I was not satisfied with the noise pump from my H80. As far as I can tell, this performs similarly or better to the H80 while generating less noise. I wish Corsair would offer a cheaper version that doesn't include any fans at all, because the ones that come with the H55 don't hold a candle to the alternatives that are available.
Summary for a cheap cooler is ok, taste with fx-8150 am3+ idle 30c playing 55,, same temperature than my CM evo hyper 212, but my mobo low temp at -8c so... for be an low profile is ok ... i just change the stock fan for another better
Summary Can't complain much for a $50 liquid cooling system. Have tried the H40 and H50 as well and Corsair always makes them good. This was bought on budget for my i7 overclock and I feel it does the job just as good as the more expensive ones.
Keeps it at a nice high 20s/low 30s when idle and never gets past 50.
Hydro Series H55 is the easy cooling upgrade for your Intel CPU. The efficient, self-contained liquid cooling system is quieter and more efficient than stock CPU fans, and the compact design makes it ideal for smaller cases.
