  • Summary: AMD 8 core 8350 keeps it nice and cool, installation was simple on gigabyte motherboard. I didn't realize the standoffs had flat spots to align with the holes in under plate at first and had a struggle thinking something was wrong with the holes at first, you've got to look closely at them. Other than that it's a quality product, massive large and could pose problems for mounting in some cases (be sure to measure before you buy).

Almost Perfect

  • Summary: It's well designed and the heatpipes are in direct contact with the processor. However, the flaw is that the pipes are not exceptionally flat (looks like a belt sander was used by OEM). It was a bit awkward, but I lapped the heatsink for the sake of flatness and not a mirror finish (using flat glass + sandpaper, stopping at 2000 grit), and it keeps my 4.5GHz overclocked G3258 very cool (65C full-load, 35C idle - and with less than a two second temperature swing).

  • Summary: fits great, keeps my cpu's at like 30 to 40 under heavy loads, gaming etc. Fits no sure why they don't have it listed as so. Case wise would be the only issue to make sure to look at. Have two of these in two different setups, have never had a issue with either mid towers :) recommend getting another fan for the other sie :)

  • Summary: I've used liquid CPU coolers in the past, but now I wonder why I bothered. This works great. Why it works is not complicated: it's the largest heatsink you can fit in a standard case. It comes with one 120 mm fan, and you can add another, but the fan is almost superfluous. It's all about throwing the maximum amount of copper and aluminum at the problem. The only con: You have to remove the motherboard to attach a backplate.

Amazingly Quiet; Super Results

  • Summary: I do HiDef video editing with Vegas Pro, Premiere Pro and After Effects. I'm using an i7-3770 with a fast, solid state hard drive as C drive. Was getting overheating alarms with the stock cooler when I was rendering videos. Upgraded to this Cooler Master and I can crunch the most demanding video composites without any overheating. The fan runs so quiet that I can't tell that my computer is on.

  • Summary: Attached this to my APU and over clocked the quad cores from 3.8 to 4.2 and the thermal margin stays really cold even under extreme game load.

  • Summary: My FX-6350 stock fan was ridiculously loud. It kept my CPU at about 55-60 degrees C. This cooler is very quiet, and it keeps it from 40-45 degrees. Keep in mind it's not a small cooler. It barely fit in my NZXT Phantom 240p case.

  • Excerpt: the product is great because of its price and effectiveness. For only around $, it beats many other heat sinks that are a lot more expensive.
  • Pros: Cheap And Effective, Good Value, Removable, Strong, Versatile
