Good, but not great...

Matt, Amazon

  • Summary: I originally planned to give this product 4 stars (minus one for troublesome installation.) But after about a week of use, the fan started making this awful rattling noise, leaving me no choice but to buy a replacement. It's been another week since I've replaced the fan and so far so good.

Looks like a F-250 radiator

21 July 2014
  • Summary: That's about all I can tell you about it. Ordered a barebones kit with a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P and the standoffs that come with the Hyper 212 won't fit the motherboard. Because this thing is so big, you have to build a foundation to support it and the standoff height determines where the cooler sits...

Nice cooler but TALL

Kenneth C. Ross, Amazon
10 April 2013
  • Summary: This is an impressive cooler with a large fan that produces relatively quiet air flow. However, it is quite tall (almost 6.5 inches) and for me that was about 1/4 inch too tall to fit into my tower case.

Well made, but...

J. E. Martinsen, Amazon
18 October 2012
  • Summary: This cooler is well made and packaged nicely, but attaching it to a 2011 socket is a nightmare. The installation instructions are written to be understood by so many cultures they really need to "studied" carefully to get anything from them.

Not worth it for the price anymore

Brandon Hope, Amazon
7 January 2015
  • Summary: I had this in my old AMD system, it works, decently, installation is a bit cumber son, quality is lack luster, the fan mounting solution is bad, and damages the fins, the fan I had failed within a month, the fan is also very loud.

Will do the job keeping the CPU cool when overclocking

Jeffrey Pillon, Amazon
21 October 2014
  • Summary: PRO's: Definitely keeps the CPU cooler then a stock fan. Will do the job keeping the CPU cool when overclocking. CON's: Sticks out too far. Would not buy it again because of that. Had to modify my AZZA Solano 1000 CSAZ-1000 Full Tower Case to make it fit.

OK cooler for overclocking

Brandon, memoryexpress.com
23 January 2013
  • Summary: This cooler excels when doing moderate overclocking, but as sooner as you kick it up a notch it doesn't do so good. I would say its definitely worth the price for the performance you get out of it.
  • Pros: At 4.0 GHz it keeps my cpu within the 70C range while running Prime95, at idle around 32C. It's a great cooler if you're not planning on doing a lot of overclocking.
  • Cons: At 4.5 GHz using the thermal compound included with it my average temp while running Prime95 was 90C. And this is even after putting a Silverstone AP121 fan on the cooler and putting tape over the edges to increase airflow through the fins.
