Not for AMD!

Richard M., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: I can't speak for how well it works on intel boards, but this does not fit AMD boards well. I ended up having to shave the whole bottom right corner off of the fan just so it wouldn't obstruct the Ram slot closest to the cpu. The airflow direction is an issue for me as well as the only way to mount this cooler is vertically, therefore the intake is either pulling the hot air coming off of my gpu or blowing hot air from the cpu onto it, neither of which is desirable.
  • Pros: This unit does what it is advertised to do which is keep the cpu cool. I went from about 50c to 30c when idling and it keeps my temps below 60c under pressure after replacing my stock AMD fan with this.
  • Cons: This product is NOT made with AMD in mind. It may fit the brackets but only blowing air vertically not horizontally which is inconvenient for most. It also gets in the way of the closest RAM slot. The instructions are vague pictures that are of little help. Mounting this is a real pain. I had to enlist the help of another person to hold on the brackets while I took care of the screws.

  • Summary: Har kört den en dag nu. Tyst och enkel att montera. Men fläktramen känns mycket plastig. Var tvungen att byta riktning då jag satte den fel första gången. Lyckades spräcka plasten som håller den stora fläkten på 2 ställen. Det är dåligt för att vara en dag gammal.

Тест на везение к сожаление

  • Summary: На кор 2500К смог потянуть только 4700мгц! Дальше температура за 75 уходила.. Кулер крепится надежно! Никаких опасений крепление не вызывает! Сам кулер внушительных размеров по высоте, по этому еле вошел в корпус. Первое впечатление - сила! Но на практике 300 вт это перебор. 200 - реально. ИМХО.
  • Pros: Площадь радиатора, отличный вентилятор, бесшумность, отличный внешний вид, не большие деньги стоит.
  • Cons: Есть пропаянные и не пропаянные варианты, что и определяет, будет ли это самая лучшая, или неудачная покупка. Проверяйте при покупке!
