Great Bang for the Buck
20 November 2011
Summary: Installed without issue, sits high so check case clearance, depth, (good for RAM with high clearance heat syncs). Brought my 1090T from a 44C to 45C down to 36C to 37C. Using an Element V case.
Summary: I threw this on a 2500k which I had OCed only to 4GHz as it had already hit the 60c mark (which is well in the save zone, but as high as i like my cpus to be). The 92mm fans fit my case pretty well and the look is nice but thats about it. It is not PWM so no speed control. the cooling is sub par, and likely not really all that much better then stock, although ive never tested. I swapped out for a 212+ dual fan in push/pull 10c idle drop, 15c load drop.
Summary: The instructions aren't that good if you have never installed a unit like this or haven't done it in awhile and don't remember the details. I had to return my memory and replace with lower profile sticks because they would not fit under this unit, this was on an Asus P755D Pro motherboard. I consider this bad design. Now one of the fans is making a loud annoying sound intermittently.
Summary: Initial impressions, in terms of build quality, were very good but the experience leaves a lot be be desired. The installation drawing cleary shows the angled coolermaster logo and the direction of airflow. Well on mine the airlow and the logo do not align. The actual airflow was opposite to that shown on the diagram.I had to take it out again which was a big job.
