Summary: Here are some tips for writing great reviews: Do explain why you liked or disliked this product. Do compare to similar products and share how long you've used this product. Do identify specific attributes (e.g. comfort & fit of a shirt or the battery life of a camera) and whether they met your expectations. Don't describe your seller or shipping experience (you can do that at amazon.com/feedback).
Summary: Very quiet and the temp on my i7 870 has dropped approx. 7 degrees. Also seems very durable! What more could I ask for? Just a warning to anyone wanting to purchase this CPU Cooler though...if you have ram with extended heat fins, this cooler will not be suitable for you. The cooler sits over the first 2 ram slots and just clears any low profile ram eg: Kingston Hyper X DDR3 Blue Genesis. For me this was not an issue obviously.
Summary: I just installed this thing about 3-4 hours ago, so I don't have a long history with this item yet. My CPU temps ran around 60-73c at low load and when running high video quality video games temps would sometimes reach over 90c (yikes!) with the highest temp before installing this cooler reaching 94c - this was last night and my breaking point for deciding to go to Fry's and buy a cooler. I paid 30 bucks for one at Fry's.
Summary: used it for about 3 days on my Micro atx motherboard with a Phenom II X4 945 and the idle temps only dropped by 2*C but the good part and the part i was originally hoping to change is that the load temps have dropped by 11*C it was topping out at 48*C now its only getting up to 36*C. that being said if you do mount it on an AM2/AM3/AM3+ socket it needs to be facing toward the top of the case so you can properly mount it, with the intel it needs to be facing the front or...
Summary: To be honest, i was a little skeptical and unnerved at the sight of this sink in person. My first thoughts were that this sink was way too flimsy to outperform my old one, but there is why it outperforms my old one, hands down. The great surface area and the efficiency of the tube design has reduced my CPU temps from the low 60ºC range to the mid 50ºC range with lower fan speeds and the fan is MUCH, MUCH quieter.
Summary: ok i read the reviews before buying this and i was worried about the install it seemed thats where mots of the problems was comming from or the fan was too loud well I have an amd AM3 cpu and install was easy but i also have a full size tower the fan i found wasn't any louder then the stock fan i can see how it would be a harder install with a intell but in five mins i was up and running and a little tip plug the fan in first its very hard to plug it in after when you...
Summary: Is not the most silence fan in the world (upper 80%), but does a really good job for the price. Excellent for space limited builds. This fan didn't kick up Intel's Stock Fan ass (as reviews said), but does a little better job, if $25 is not a pain for you, go ahead. Usually keeps the processor under 39C on low charge, and doesnt pass the 65C on hard gaming. Really Goog Choice for the Price.
