HTPC Build with a Older 775 Socket
17 November 2013
Summary: Used in a HTPC build with Gigabyte Micro board. It has been in use for 2 weeks and CPU temps are 24C at idle. Full loads at 48C. With board control I don't think the fan is noisy at all. Unless your going to put right next to your ear. Inside my Silverstone case you can't even hear it.
Summary: Had this for 3 days now and its doin a great job, cpu heat went down from 59 C to 37 C. Just be carefull on install, you have to find right direction before you lock it down. My games and overall pc is doin alot better.
Summary: Built an X58 Core i7 920 with and EVGA X58 Classified motherboard a few years ago and tried a few coolers, including the corsair H50, and other air coolers like the CM V10 which were way to big and bulky and seemed that they would cause chip creep with the weight of the pressure. The Hyper 212+ cools better than the H50 and for me was all about the best performance for the smallest size. Added another fan for push/pull config and it hasnt let me down yet.
Pros: Great cooling performance, Quiet, Reliable, Small footprint
Summary: Works fine with my Intel LGA1156 cpu. Had an assembly problem when the single clamping screw thread stripped while tightening. Had to re-tap the thread for a larger screw. Not the best design for holding the cooler against the cpu.
Summary: My home server kept overheating and shutting down when encoding HD video using handbrake. (4TB Raid 5, Athlon II x4 640 quad core 3.0 ghz). That is until I got my new vortex plus CPU cooler. No more over heating, cpu runs 15 degrees (Celsius) cooler , and the fan is extremely quiet. HIGHLY recommend!
Summary: This is certainly not the Cadillac of coolers, but for $15 it was a great deal. I am actually quite pleased with it. I am running an Intel Core2Quad Q6700 (not overclocked) and the idle temps average around 32-37 degrees Celsius, which is better than the mid-40's that I was getting with the stock cooler. Noise level is not bad either. Definitely worth it if you need a decent cooler and are on a tight budget.
Summary: If this isn't the CPU cooler I bought two years ago for my system rebuild, it's practically identical. Processor is an AMD Phenom X3, moboard is a Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 using DDR2 memory. The fan keeps the processor temperature controlled at 74-80 deg F practically all the time with enough air moving to keep the memory and the onboard chip set ventilated with very little noise doing it. Suggestion: Test fit first!
