  • Pros: 1. Keeps my I-4770 k (no overclock yet) at about 68, in a warm room, while running Prime95 stress test. Max I saw was 75 on one core. Used in conjunction with ARCTIC MX-2
  • Cons: So far so good, can't complain. Only will add a new review if I find reason to.

  • Pros: It keeps my FX-8350 cool. Have not seen temps above mid to high 40c temp when play PC games from World of Warcarft to Battlefield 4.
  • Cons: The fan works but looks cheap. Only can set fan on bottom or top on AMD platforms

Near Perfect

  • Summary: You must plan for the size of this thing or you wont be happy!
  • Pros: Excellent cooling capacity, most stock CPUs will be cooled near silent, packaging is nice, build quality is great.
  • Cons: Size, only comes with one fan. Not a fan of the chrome covered plastic beauty caps for the heat pipes. But i

works really well

  • Pros: I have to highlight the fact that you need to make sure it fits your case. my new case Rosewill Blackhawk clears this by 1/2 inch, after I removed the side panel fan. My old case was a little smaller Cougar Solution, I didn't try it on but I guarantee you it will not fit. I use this on a fx 9590 and it seems to never go over 44 c on bf3 ultra settings. idles my cpu at around 20-25c. comes with brackets for additional fan to configure push/pull. I haven't used this but...
  • Cons: it will block 2 ram slots closest to the cpu if you use fancy heatsink ones, but not if you used regular ram without heatsink, or low profile ram

Impressive

Luis G., Newegg
7 November 2013
  • Pros: This cooler impressed me more than I expected. I installed this on a i5-4570K with the provided coolermaster thermal paste and I got idle temps averaging 28 C, on intel burn-in testing on high setting, using 4gb ram and 100% cpu load it only reached 38-40 C on all cores, 20 iterations at 34-35GFLOPS. The vapor chambers in the cooler really do work, other fan coolers this large can't cool nearly as well as this bad boy.
  • Cons: Had to switch the fan to the other side of the cooler in a pull config because the fan was touching the memory, which doesn't look great in a customer build.

The AMD version of this install is horrible!

Jezreel G., Newegg
9 August 2013
  • Summary: You have to install the memory first then install the bracket and heatsink.
  • Pros: The highest TDP on the market, even better than Cooler Master's flagship V8GT.
  • Cons: For AM3 Installations, the heatsink faces top/down instead of front of case to back of case. It's just super awkward facing top/down and it wreaks havok on the airflow pattern of the case.

keeps things cool

Daniel A., Newegg
2 July 2013
  • Summary: I'm still happy with the coolermaster heatsink itself, extremely high quality.
  • Pros: The cooler was easy to install. I took my time and 'silvered' both the heatsink cpu surface and cpu surface with some Arctic Silver 5 grease, then just a small line parallel with the core layout of the CPU.
  • Cons: I wish the fan was higher quality. It is a PWM fan, which is nice, but I did notice a tick tick vibration it was causing through the heatsink. I replaced it with a Noctua NF-F12 PWM fan which is much better. Needless to say , I should have then looked at going with a Noctua cooler+fan combo to save some $$.
