Solid CPU Cooler

David H., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Excellent cooler but it is very large. The fan is quiet, even at full load.
  • Pros: Direct contact heat pipes. Large heat sink. Large fan. Low RPM, quiet fan
  • Cons: Large! May be too tall for some cases. Be sure to measure. Makes contact with the RAM heatsinks. I had to remove the heatsinks.

Great cooler. Not as bloated as the 212 EVO

Carol B., Newegg

  • Summary: - I recommend this cooler for small form factor builders that want a top level air cooler.
  • Pros: - Thinner than its cousin - 120mm fan - Easy for someone accustomed to AMD to install since it uses a clippy fastener - Fit in my tiny mATX case with a GTX 980ti and super tall Corsair Vengeance RAM (The ones with the salad forks sticking out of the top)
  • Cons: - Not made of solid 14k gold - Can't cook eggs on it.

Works great under normal conditions

Max R., Newegg

  • Summary: would not fit in low-pro case
  • Pros: Only moving part is an easily replaceable 120mm fan, which is much quieter than the stock CPU fan. Also it comes with thermal paste.
  • Cons: Aluminum fins bend easily, but they also bend back easily.

Just a great cooler!!!

Vincenzo P., Newegg

  • Pros: This heat sink will cool your cpu. I use to have the T2 which on idle and full load(prime 95, on a i5 4460 (3.2Ghz), would give 36 and 67 respectively. With the T4 im getting 26 and 53.. love this upgrade and worth every dollar.
  • Cons: None apart from ram clearance, but just check the specs before buying it for your MB

great dollars to performance

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: On some PCBs this cooler may have issue with tall ram but I was able to get it onto an itx board without too much grief. Used a small zip tie to help hold tension arm in place since I'm using it in a portable lan rig.
  • Pros: Cheap and reasonably easy to install, and does what it is supposed to do; keep my i7 4790k happy/cool. Comes with extra fan bracket so you can add a pull fan.
  • Cons: Do not care for the way it mounts. A tension leaver instead of screws hold it in place. I worry this could pop loose when the pc is being moved, say from one room to another.

AM3+ - it points the wrong way

Eric K., Newegg
16 December 2015
  • Pros: It is cheap, does a good job.
  • Cons: Comes with several options for changing out the bracket (if you have any other socket) but on the AM3+, nothing. So it has a bar that goes across the plate and the fan can point to the top or bottom of the case but not the back. So I have mine blowing out the top. Didn't research enough but will ...

Does its job.

Edmund M., Newegg
16 December 2015
  • Pros: Purchased because a 212 evo was literally 3mm too tall to fit into current case. This fit perfectly. 31C on an a10-7850k running at 3.9ghz in a crowded case with poor cable management and only 1 other fan in the case. Good sturdy design. Decent enough thermal paste.
  • Cons: None that i can think of.

Excellent cooler

Kyle B., Newegg
15 December 2015
  • Summary: Awesome cooler for just about anyone. Would strongly recommend! Not so good for overclocking but it is effective.
  • Pros: Nice and Big cooler, but not TOO big... Kept my i5 at the time nice and cool. Also very quite!!
  • Cons: Do yourself a favor and install it when you have the board outside the case. I was rushing during the build and installed it while I had the mobo in the case.. worst experience ever haha

Fan stopped spinning.

robert r., Newegg
10 December 2015
  • Summary: I've have other brand CPU fans that are still spinning easily for 6 years straight.
  • Pros: Kept my system cool for a while.
  • Cons: Fan started making strange noises and eventually stopped spinning. Was very hard to spin by hand. Had to take off the rubber stopper underneath the sticker and add some silicon grease to get it to spin again.

mediocre instructions

Manus S., Newegg
2 December 2015
  • Summary: originally I installed brackets with edges faced down - this made it very loose and the fan came off easily. Once I searched I found out edges need to be UP - this made connection tighter.
  • Pros: Cheap, good heat dissipation; includes thermal paste, simple
  • Cons: poor instructions; easy to install brackets upside down
