Not for overclockers
20 January 2014
Summary: I would not recommend this to anyone who is looking to overclock their CPU, I have a friend that raves about the 120mm for his overclocking and I've tried several different scenarios of applying thermal paste to see if I was just doing it wrong.
Pros: Very quiet, secure, and fits nicely in mid towers.
Cons: I would not recommend this fan to those who are looking for better performance and pushing their CPU. The stock cooler that came with my FX runs 20 degrees cooler when all cores are being pushed at 100%, mostly likely more. With this fan I idle at about 20C and load at about 50C...keep in mind th...
Summary: i am running a am3 socket amd fx8150 8 core processor at 3.6ghz
Pros: easy to install, option for two fans etc... comes wth everything you need.
Cons: well, when i mounted the cpu fan the first time it was a bit off cause of the direction of the fans were facing the mounting bracket lever and it was colliding with it, with dual fans. i switched it the other way and the rivet on the mounting bracket broke off!! i had to solder metal to the other...
Summary: The shipping on the RMA nearly equals the sale price. Also noticed that the reviews for the coolermaster 212 and 101 are jammed into one section, so although I thought I was reading amazing reviews of the 101, they were actually praising the 212. Pretty upset with this purchase :-/
Pros: Looks nice?
Cons: 2 copper pipes run parallel down the cpu-contact area, with aluminum (the silvery metal) in the center. Therefore the copper pipes straddle the heat-generating parts of the x4 965BE cpu, rather than coming into direct contact. The CPU runs 10-15 deg hotter at idle using this cooler when compared ...
Cons: Running on an AMD FX-8320 and this thing can't even keep my processor in safe operating temperatures under stock settings (no overclocking). Running Prime-95 for 10 minutes and already hitting 70c. The stock heatsink/fan could keep it under 62c under full load. It is pretty pathetic when a big co...
Summary: Haven't tested on an FM1 socket, which I hope it was fully intended for. Not recommended for FM2 setups.
Pros: ~Better than most CPU stock fans.
Cons: ~Not very friendly to FM2 sockets. Very difficult to install, even with instructions. ~If you somehow manage to install it into an FM2 socket, it's very loose and vibrates, which is very annoying and concerning about a build's safety.
COOLER MASTER RR-H101-22FK-RI 80mm Long life sleeve bearing CPU Cooler

Excerpt: Non really Not genuinely very good for dual cor solutions as the placing of the heat pies does not give it greatest contact path for Intel core layout. I identified the sotck HSF was most likely greater beneath loads. You get what you spend for.
