Oddly, the instructions recommend configuring the 6-fan cooler as a push-pull INTAKE (not exhaust) for maximum cooling. That contradicted what I initially thought — I mean, why drive heated air through your case? Why not configure the cooler as a push-pull EXHAUST? But I followed Arctics recommendations nonetheless. The three 140-mm Corsair fans that came with the case are now configured as exhaust fans (two on the top, one on the back). The result is enormous airflow through the Corsair case.
Now that my build is done, I’m quite glad I bought this cooler.
* This cooler does an excellent job of cooling. During a 15-minute stress test of my gently overclocked Core i7-6700K, the highest temp I recorded was 61 degrees.
* This cooler is really quiet with the CPU at idle. And even during CPU stress testing, the noise level was excellent. (No roaring fans.) Indeed, most of the noise of my build is from the fans that came with my Corsair case. And those fans are quiet.
* There is no “pump” noise that I can detect. Indeed, when I turned on my rig for the first time, I had a panicked moment — was the pump on? Did I forget to plug the cooler pins into the motherboard? It was that quiet. I’ve heard people complain about the pump noise with water cooling, but I can’t hear any pump-related noise on this cooler.
* Price: yep, this thing is pricey. For most builds, I think the 120 or 240 versions of this cooler would suffice — easily. I went with the 360 version because of my specific use case … number-crunching, which can intermittently pin all CPU cores to 100%, sometimes for extended periods. (And it can be hard to predict when an analysis will do this.)
* Big: a 6-fan 360 cooler is .. well … big. Make sure that your case has adequate room, especially if you configure this cooler with all 6 fans in push-pull (as I did).
* Slight irregularities in the radiator grill. Some of the intricate metal grilling on my radiator looks like it might have been damaged, perhaps during shipping. It doesn’t seem to have affected cooling performance (see below), so I’m okay with that. Besides, in push-pull configuration, your radiator will be sandwiched between two sets of fans. So no one will see the radiator grilling anyway. 😉
STRESS TEST RESULTS
My goal was to gain some confidence that my rig could run computationally intensive algorithms in parallel without damaging my CPU (or reduce it’s lifespan).
Using MSI’s “Overclock Genie”, I obtained a gentle overclock of:
* CPU: 4.40 GHz with VCore voltage @ 1.32V
* RAM: 2400 Mhz at 1.344V.
A more aggressive overclock will probably not help me much, so I didn’t push the overclock any harder (for now).
I run Linux on my rig, so my testing was done using “psensor” (for monitoring temps) and “cpuburn” for stressing the CPU. My ambient temp (as measured by my house thermostat) is approx 24C. At idle, my CPU temps were 26C.
To truly stress my CPU, I kept hyper-threading enabled in the BIOS. The stress test was to run eight instances of “burnP6” simultaneously, which pushed all 8 hyper-threads to 100%.
I ran the test for approximately 15 minutes. During the test, the CPU temps hovered around 58C +/- 2C. The recorded maximum CPU temp on any core was 61C over the 15 minute period. I stopped the stress test at 15 minutes because it became clear that the CPU temps were not trending higher. (And since my testing method was not rigorous, it seemed pointless to refine the estimates too much.)
Even during the stress testing, the 360 fans were relatively quiet. And the volume of air through the case was excellent.
If this review was helpful to anyone who must make a decision, then I am glad.
Live, Love, Linux =-)

My only gripe is that to install the top fans on a horizontal top of the case, you gotta hope the PCMR gods are with you as you have to line up at least 6 of the 12 holes in order to install them.
Maybe arctic could include a tiny bit of sticky paste or tape to hold them in place while you are positioning them for install?
Overall though, i am very impressed with the cooling capability of this AIO. Dropped my temps roughly 15C over my older Seidon.
What could possibly be better? It would be cool to see some sort of display on the pump unit to show color for temp or some RPM display.
Overall this is a great value, and when I got it, pcpartpicker did not even list it as an option. I just saw it in a completed build and said, must have.

The installation isn’t too difficult if you know what you’re doing. For some cases (I recommend Corsair’s large case) you have to remove the built in case fans and then screw these in but they fit perfectly.

Make sure your PC can’t fit this! When using all 6 fans, I had to remove my 3.5″ Bay in my ATX full tower.
