Good enough, the Coolit sourced versions tend to be better than the AStek versions. Hopefully you have no problems, from my understanding the H80's are great.

The 'problem' with the H100 was a bad batch got through with bad fan controller hardware. It kinda tarnished the rep of the H100. All sealed AIOs have the potential for noise. Some in every batch make it past the tests (small amount of air)....but the early H100s were known for it...as it was one of the most expensive at the time and people with zero experience with water expected perfection from such an expensive purchase...and the 1%'ers with bad units yelled the loudest. This got spread across boards and people with no first hand problems piled on in typical sheeple group-think...and the rest as they say is history.
