Been using this product with 2.0.8 flow control sw and other than it caused hearing impact cause of the excessive fan noise, sw caused many problems including not reading cpu temp, reinstalled all system all for this ...sh sw and now with the latest version 2.0.9 reading the cpu temp wrong on a EVGA Z370 FTW mainboarda hahahaha ;)
 
Fans are waaaaay tooo loud at any speed, you can not effectively control them by the sw too.
 
Looked at Corsair H115i Pro at weekend, at fastest speed at same case and cpu at my friend, you can not even hear the fans at 1m, while you have to use a noise cancelling headphone for Evga. I recognized I'm staying away from my desktop cause of it for about two months ;)
 
Shared this review on amazon too...I want to make sure more and more people should know this.
 
This product is trash and waste of money for all. If I know they accept the return, I would send it to European quarters immediately. But I'm sure they will reject.

    Bought Corsair ML140 fans and installed them, difference is day and night ;) Who was the genius behind the evga fans I dont know but, those are crap! Both so much louder and low performance. At the same case same conditions, it changed max 73dB to 66dB, which means a huge difference! As a gamer and software producer noise difference is lfe changing. And max temp is changed from 83 to 76 from my 5Ghz oc'ed 8700K. 
     
    I suggest everyone who uses the Evga CLC to change their fans...

    So how did the performance change and what did you use for a DB level reading ?
     
    I am with you on  wanting NO noise -- when I use my Mac mini 2018 - I keep think is it not on- but it does keep my coffee cup warm with its 80 deg c cpu temp.
