Cooler Master Geminll S524

PC Scooter, Amazon
6 October 2013
  • Summary: This item never arrived. Contacted Amazon, who refunded the purchase price of the cooler. That's very GOOD service. Could not ask for any better. I did out source the purchase of it. It is a decent cooler. It is big and heavy. You have to use your brain to install it.

Decent Cooler

gift r., Newegg
23 July 2011
  • Summary: This fits LGA775 on Zotac G43ITX inside the Sugo SG05. Had to remove the regular 120mm fan that comes with it and use a half width 120mm fan to fit inside case. Works pretty well. This replaced a Big Shuriken that was to big for the SG05.
  • Pros: Good Size, Mounting Bracket, Fits LGA775, Multiple Fan Configurations
  • Cons: Needs pretty big fan for superior cooling

Eh.

Kevin H., Newegg
23 May 2011
  • Summary: I guess it's not much of a loss, and in the end it's doing its job, but now I have to spend another fifteen bucks or so on another fan for my case. Had I known that I could've spent another $15 on a better cooler instead of another fan.
  • Pros: Brought temperatures down from stock Intel cooler, and certainly quieter, though not much of an accomplishment.
  • Cons: Kind of a pain to install, though I've never done any other CPU coolers so I can't really compare it to anything. Real problem was fan noise. Was lead to believe it would be silent. As I said, it was quieter than the stock cooler, but it wasn't what I'd call quiet. I replaced the fan with one of ...

Cool, quiet and clumsy

John C., Newegg

  • Pros: Extremely quiet, the bullet points aren't exaggerating there. Keeps even older, hotter CPUs cool. Mirror-smooth finish on the bottom surface.
  • Cons: Pain in the neck to install. There's no way to fasten the backplate to the motherboard without having the cooler already in place over the CPU. Don't even try this unless your chassis has a cutout for CPU backplates. Even then, having an extra pair of hands may be necessary.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Кулер сдох ровно через год, уж не знаю, может его надо было как-то смазывать или профилактику проводить. Радовал тишиной, но однажды просто перестал вращаться и был заменен на noctua. Радиатор под нагрузкой без кулера температуру всё-таки не держит.
  • Pros: Хороший радиатор, тишина. Относительно компактный радиатор, многие на мамку не помещались просто.
  • Cons: Плохой кулер.

Cooler Master GeminII S524 (RR-G524-18PK-R1)

  • Conclusion: Поставил данную модель, ожидал большего. Причина выбора - отн. высокая цена, удобная форма, невысокая конструкция (нужен был кулер до 11 см в высоту). результаты работы (переустановил на всякий случай 3 раза): corei5-2500k без разгона: в режиме простоя (desktop) - 38-41 градус по ядрам.
  • Pros: - удобная сравнительно простая установка - красивый:D
  • Cons: - за такие деньги - результаты охлаждения не устраивают - тут есть медные отводы? похоже нет? - цена
