Excerpt: I got this from my friend after he used it for a couple of months in the build I made him. He originally got it for $50 at Microcenter which was a fantastic deal. I used this as an upgrade from my 212+ as my temps were 70-80s under normal load on my 2500k.
Excerpt: This is a solid entry level cooler made by Asetek and distributed by Antec. The Phenom rig I have it on is now one year old, and is overclocked to 3.5Ghz (I didn't bother trying for a higher overclock given that the Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 mainboard in my rig doesn't have a heat sink on the VRM - a mobo...
Excerpt: I bought these excellent coolers for my new build. I installed the first one on my i5 3570K and silenced the fan. Then I ran Prime95 and the temps didn't go over 58 degrees Celsius...and it was very quiet.
Summary: Does not bloody fit on LGA-775, as advertised. Manual mentions nothing of 775, and it does not come with compatible mounting hardware. It apparently used to, but mine did not arrive with the correct mounting hardware.
Summary: The documentation is horrible and either I don't know what I'm doing or the parts supplied are incompatible with the LGA775 CPU. I watched a few YouTube installation videos and the parts in the box are not close to what they are showing in the video.
Excerpt: I wanted to eliminate the big bulky air cooler from my case and get my first touches of water cooling. These all in one coolers aren't really much more to deal with then a big air cooler though. I found it easier because the big air coolers get in the way during installation.
Excerpt: I purchased this as my first water cooling unit and i have to say it has been great and reliable i have had no issues and have been able to overclock my cpu to its max settings with no heat issues. As it is only a single rad unit it makes it easy to fit in almost any case that you may have.
Excerpt: Picked this up at MicroCenter for $50. As is, it achieved pretty good temps, especially when under load on an 8120, temps won't go over 53c. Definitely great if you're trying to clean up your interior, saved me a ton of space and opened plenty of real estate for things like tall ram heatsinks.
Excerpt: I purchased this cooler to replace a Corsair H50 for my LAN rig in my Sugo SG05 case meaning I need low profile, and high flow. This is exactly it. This water cooler is a great entry point for people to try watercoolers.
Excerpt: I bought this on sale at a local computer shop for $35 CAD, and I have been able to push my AMD Phenom II from 3.2 to 4.0GHz with stock voltages and very minimal heat with the included fan plus the 4-pin Molex fan (same size) that came with my case (only one fan is included, but your case should...
