This was the first water cooler I'd ever installed. That being said, it was pretty simple up until the point I had to mount it onto the CPU. It was a bit of a pain getting it lined up correctly and holding it still. It looks fantastic however. I wish the logo was LED lit, but the fans look great. Overall pretty quiet. I can't hear it over the sound of my other fans. The most important part however, is that it keeps my CPU very cool. Under 100% load for 5 minutes it didn't climb above 63C.
The included fan controller is nice, as you can change the LED color/pattern and fan speed of your radiator fans.
For my ASUS Z97 Pro mobo, I plugged the pump into the CPU OPT port and the Fans into the CPU Fan port.

Works great for now, the fans are quieter than expected and look good. The controller is a bit iffy but it may be my BIOS setup not recognizing it.

Keeps my Ryzen 5 2600X idle temps down to 27-28C and loaded temps around 40-45C. I haven't tested overclocking yet, but I imagine it will do great.
The lighting effects on the ring look great. The controller is pretty basic, but you can choose from 256 colors if you are patient enough to pause the controller on your favorite color while it cycles through them. Or you can just choose one of the 10 or so preset colors.
It all runs VERY silent. I don't hear the pump at all, and the parts where the fans are screwed into your case or radiator are covered with rubber to reduce any vibrations. I am satisfied with the sound.
The only con in my opinion is that RGB is limited only to the plastic the ring around the fans. The CPU waterblock does not glow and the fan blades are black so they do not catch the lighting effects of the ring. That migh be by design so I will not subtract a star for it.

Very nice AIO cooler. Draw-back on this AIO is no customization of fan curve and the controller that comes with it only give you 2 speeds, plus the pump is not as quiet as the previous AIO I had from Corsair (H80i GT). Other than the fan curve draw-back, the LED show is nice and extremely easy to install.

The lights and the cooling work flawlessly. You can see the lighting from any angel and it links with your other thermaltake fans. Great piece for a great price.

Looks great and runs great. The only con I have for this is the hoses could be a bit longer to accommodate for cases that have a little more space between the front and where the processor sits.

Definitely a great CPU cooler. It keeps the temp pretty damn low and noise so quiet, my ceiling fan was literally the only thing I can hear. The only reason this does not get a 5 Star is because the customize-able elements of the fans are limited (even though its "RGB" ) and has no software to control it.
