Cannot recommend.

Brian B., Amazon
27 May 2015
  • Summary: "Direct touch" copper pipes don't form a smooth surface against the CPU. This ruined the cooling performance for me. Cooler Master clearly has some manufacturing issues with this design. Cannot recommend.

Very quiet yet fragile CPU fan

L. Asberry "Larry Asberry, jr.", Amazon
11 May 2015
  • Summary: I follow Jason Evangelho from Forbes.com and he wrote an article building a $750 PC capable of 1080p/60 fps and this fit the bill. Its very quiet and keeps my CPU so cool I began overclocking. Its a very good price for the performance.

Bryce Pedersen, Amazon
1 May 2015
  • Summary: This fan has a nice heat sink and fan but when i first installed this my cpu temps actually went up. I assume it is because i need to "break in" the thermal paste, but it's been going down over the past few days of usage. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DO NOT TAKE OFF THE FAN.

13 April 2015
  • Summary: The heat sink broke clean off. It looked like aluminum from afar but inside it was black, it even crumbles between my fingers. Could not use it. What a waste of time and money, I attached pics:

D. Chauran, Amazon
8 April 2015
  • Summary: Works great! I used this to replace the stock cooler on an older Phenom II CPU that I put in an old HTPC. Before putting this in, the CPU was running around 60c at idle with the fan at full speed with the cover on the case sounding like a jet engine.

CPU Fan too big to fit ITX mini mother board!

Kristina Strieter, Amazon
2 January 2015
  • Summary: First the bad. I installed this fan on a ITX system. The part was recommended by www.pcpartpicker.com. A web site that was recommended to me by a friend. For the most part it did its part but really didn't take into account the sheer size of the CPU fan.

Cold and quiet, best so far!

David Slama, Amazon
5 December 2014
  • Summary: This is the best CPU cooler I have had ever. This thing cools better than my water cooler used to. It is a very quiet runner too. It is cooling a APU AMD A8-3850 *O.C to 3.4GHz* and still hovering around 30C. I did use arctic silver 5 instead of the thermal paste provided.

Rating Not Fair For This Unit

A. DeJesus "video guy", Amazon
25 November 2014
  • Summary: Any rating I put here would not be fair because this cooler was just not designed for my system. I had hoped that this cooler would work in my 3U server chassis, but the Intel i7-2600k processor is just too much. The CPU was running in the 70s under heavy video editing loads.
