HUGE!

  • Summary: I was lucky i bought a midsize board and midsize case. I cannot fathom even trying to stuff this in anything smaller than my case. Installation was a great deal more complicated, but still relatively easy.
  • Pros: Silent, cool and effective, comes with everything you need to attach this beefcake to your processor/motherboard, comes with thermal paste.
  • Cons: Monstrously huge, considerably more complicated than the OEM heatsink, overcrowds the PC case and makes installing other components more difficult, if not impossible in some circumstances.

Solid Temps

  • Pros: Easy to install. Keeps my CPU running at great temps.
  • Cons: a bit large and the fan on it wont be read by my MOBO. Tried other fans and they work fine. So atm I have another fan sitting on top that is plugged into primary while the connected fan is in the AUX fan control. Want to get this fixed but im not taking my MOBO out to take it off.

  • Summary: i would buy again only if i didnt have the 212, if you have the 212 or something like it its not worth the upgrade, i used 2 fans on both coolers
  • Pros: cools good im using it on the 2600k overclocked to 4.8 ghz i replaced the hyper 212 + with this and im only getting a few degrees cooler idle in the high 20s and high 60s to low 70, 100% load
  • Cons: not worth the difference compared to the 212 its also about twice the size of the 212

Great!

  • Summary: This heatsink was way larger than I thought it was going to be but having the HAF 932 Full Tower has plenty of space for it.
  • Pros: Easy to install. Read the Instructions though before you just try to slap this on. Cools my 2600k around 28 C which is way better than they stock cooler.
  • Cons: Fan gets in the way of the ram so i had to flip it to accommodate. Otherwise nothing so far.

Massive, but effective

  • Summary: Great cooler, great price, if a bit bulky. If you run anything higher than the 8350 or are into extreme overclocking, this is not for you.
  • Pros: This thing manages to cool my FX-8350 processor over clocked to 4.3GHz, but I run two Corsair High Static Pressure fans on it. Its also pretty inexpensive even with those, as the fans only run for around 30 bucks.
  • Cons: Its huge. If your space is limited, consider other cooling solutions. Setup was pretty confusing. I got it in the end but the instructions were messed up, mainly because of the illustrations.

  • Summary: El disipador hace su trabajo maravillosamente, pero hay que tener en cuenta el tamaño, hasta tal punto que no todos los chasis lo pueden albergar.
