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.

Mine was used...

Aaron M., Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I would like this a lot better if I had known it was going to be used... I ordered a new one, but the one I received was in a badly-taped shut box and has traces of TP still on it. I'm sure it works fine, and its only temporary anyway, but I still would have liked to know.

Technically it can work, but...

Ed Comstock, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: Supposedly this will fit an 1155 motherboard, but that's only partially true. You are going to lose the use of your first RAM slot because the fan is so large unless you have some very low profile RAM sticks.

Difficult to install and not that effective

Damian Harouff, Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Installed this on my AMD A10-6800K in a low-profile case, replacing the stock AMD retail cooler which was effective but too loud. Installation of this Cooler Master unit required the removal of the motherboard to install their backing plate, and it really felt like this cooler is geared toward Intel...

Very Poor Mounting Hardware for AMD Processors

Van Zandt "Galloping Gourmet too", Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: This has the worst mounting hardware! Why doesn't Cooler Master take advantage of the AMD backplate that comes with the motherboard? Instead, they provide their own funky, try-to-be-everything backplate that doesn't fit in some computer cases (like the Apevia), and in other cases it requires removal...

Too Wide for Sabertooth 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 Motherboard

guttermonk "guttermonk", Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: If you have RAM with heatsinks and the Sabertooth 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 Motherboard, you'll have to leave one of the RAM sockets empty if you want this cooler to fit. Also, you'll need access to the back of the mobo to install the cooler, which is a typical pain for aftermarket coolers.

a big hassle

Chris, memoryexpress.com
2 November 2013
  • Summary: It's quiet, so I suppose it's a good heatsink for that purpose.
  • Pros: ~ quiet ~lightweight
  • Cons: ~ VERY deep grooves between heatpipes even for a direct contact model; hard to get proper contact without excess thermal compound ~ back bracket attachment nuts has problems clearing my rear cpu cutout; too wide ~ vague instructions

Buy something else

Ivan, memoryexpress.com
26 July 2013
  • Summary: Buy something else ...unless its free....then swap it for something else !
  • Pros: quiet low profile
  • Cons: 1.Not as efficient at cooling as the standard AMD cooler with the Fx 8350, quieter but not as good. 2.Poor instructions with two ways to position the arms on the bracket ...one works ..the other doesnt . 3.Requires you to remove the motherboard from the case to fit as it needs to use its own mot...

definately not impressed

Mad Scientist, memoryexpress.com
8 February 2013
  • Summary: the only way i would recommend this product to someone is if they were just looking for quieter operation
  • Pros: Quiet
  • Cons: does not cool any better that stock on a phenom x6 1055t, even with a better fan on it. i tried to run the cooling pipes both horizontally and vertically. for 35 bucks i expected to at least have a little better cooling
