Summary: Looks so cool with my case that has a clear side and my case lights up blue to great match. PS bought this at the local computer store. System spec's Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit sp1 AMD Phenom X4 Quad CORE 9500 AM2+ 2.2 GHz AMD Sapphire PURE CrossFireX 770 model PC-AM2RX780 ATI Radeon...
Pros: Cooling power in this cooler is the best I have seem in some time keeps my Quad core very cool below 36C when maxed out and below 29C when idle Cool looking red LED light Don't take too long install if you read the papers a few times or look online for a video showing how to install only took me ...
Cons: Size, if you don't have a full size case this won't fit. This just fits in my case I only have about 1 to 2 CM extra room from the side of the case. Not the easiest to install cause of it's size also make sure you read over the papers that show how to install this a few times where it's not the c...
Summary: I'm glad I have a full-size tower! I don't know how in the world one would fit this thing into a mid-size. The cooling is fantastic, don't get me wrong. But the sheer size and weight of this unit do present potential problems. I can easily see how it could damage mobos.
Pros: Insanely good cooling. Pretty red LED. Shiny!
Cons: "Huge" is an understatement. Takes up massive amounts of real estate inside my tower (InWin Dragon Rider). It's heavy. That and the size make for potential mobo damage. Not the easiest to install.
Summary: As noted in previous feedback, had to reverse the fan so that it will pull instead of push air over the heatsink fins and move the air towards the fan on the rear of the case (Antec 900). I have always mounted my previous builds so that the fan pushes the air over the heatsink.
Pros: Easy to install if read directions a few times (not the clearest). Looks good. Will review performance once installed. Cools well, even if install not optimal due to case size and orientation.
Summary: Have been waiting 2 months for a SandyBridge mobo and finally got a MSI P67A-GD65 (for 1155) from Newegg. Have RAM with fin coolers (so tall). For the fan to push air over the fins on the heatsink would lose a RAM slot (or 2!) which I do not want to do.
Pros: Easy to install if read directions a few times (not the clearest). Looks good. Will review performance once installed.
Summary: Don't buy the V6 GT, it's the same thing with a second fan for $10 more. Just buy one of Cooler Master's fans for $8. You only save $2, but hey, money saved is money saved.
Pros: This cooler is great. I got for a Storm Scout, if any of you are wondering, and it BARELY fits. I couldn't put my finger between the top of the heatsink and the side of the case. Anywho, this cooler does what it's supposed to and does it well. I put a second fan on (highly recommended) and notice...
Cons: Easily the most frustrating thing I have done in the past six months. The installation isn't too bad, just make sure to pay attention to everything you do. Also, the fan clip-on things suck.
Pros: Great cooling so far, Got my 1090t @ 4.1 and its idling at 32c in Windows right now, on load it never goes above 43c Running this in a CoolerMaster Scout case. Does its job well!
Cons: Little Bulky but knew that before buying, on my Asus 890FX it hovers over my 1st Ram slot a bit, had to change to crucial ram to use all 4 slots. Also on the CoolerMaster Scout case the top side chassis fan cannot be used, the cooler is almost right up against the window. Just a FYI
Summary: With the Antec 900 case, I tried to install a side case 120mm fan and I could not. It was hitting the V6 when i tried to close it. So I decided to just make do without. Still works like a champ.
Pros: This thing is a beast! Installed with two fans so its exhaust is shooting out to top of case, 200mm fan, Antec 900. Working great so far, no problems! Keeps temps low and at full load overclock CPU, Below 50c
Cons: Would have been easy to install if I didn't have to many drinks ;)
