  • Pros: keeps my amd A10 5800k nice and cool even with a major overcloock. Im runing the 5800k at 4.4Ghz with the video core overclocked to 1050mhz. the video is overclocked buy 25% thats huge. Also if you take a few minutes to look at the instructions it installs fast and easy. i had to take the fan off...
  • Cons: in stock configeration it blocked 2 ram ports. it also blocked the first pcie slot on my motherboard. if your first pcie slot is for video cards this may not be for you.

Awesome but big

Seth B., Newegg
25 December 2012
  • Pros: Awesome cooler once you get it in. I have a corsair 400r and it fits perfectly with width and I even have a fan on the side. Its very difficult to put on and I didn't realize that you had to take off the CPU holder with the aluminum arm that keeps it in place. Also it is meant for a ATX motherboa...
  • Cons: tough to install, but once you get it in its great, none other than that

Great cooler!!!

BRIAN M., Newegg
11 November 2012
  • Pros: huge difference over the stock temps. Ive installed two of these in the last month on both my pcs. One is my gaming rig and the other a media pc. Both loaded and idle the temps have dropped 10-20 C over the stock cooler. The media pc is on 24/7 in a tight space near my fire place and temps still ...
  • Cons: The fan had to be moved on my gaming rig to clear my ram. I knew about this before hand as i assumed my ram was too tall so thus it doesn't detract a star. Its very simple to unclip the fan and move it to the opposite side making it a pull through rather than a push through fan.

Great Cooler

Marlo A., Newegg
23 August 2012
  • Summary: Spec: M5a99x Evo Asus Phenom II x4 965 BE XFX R7770 HD Kingston Hyper X 8gb 1600 CX600 PSU WD Blue 500gb HD Zalman Z11 Plus
  • Pros: This cooler is amazing, I overclocked my Phenom II x4 965 BE to 4.0ghz and this cooler keeps it under 60C under Prime95 load (12hr). It fits inside a Zalman z11 Plus case and has just enough clearance to fit the Kingston Hyper x Ram modules that I put into the system. Also, if your case doesn't h...
  • Cons: Gave me a scare that it might not fit in my case, but just had enough space to fit it in.

CPU FAN/HEATSINK

OLLEN J., Newegg
4 July 2012
  • Summary: I DID PRODUCT COMPARISONS BEFORE MAKING A DECISION. I ALWAYS STUDY ALL POSSIBLE PRODUCTS, THEN I BUY. I AM VERY HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE. AS ALWAYS I, "NEWEGG".
  • Pros: THIS HEATSINK IS A COOLER. IT MAINTANES LOW TEMPS THROUGHOUT ALL LOAD RANGES. IF YOU WANT A GREAT HEATSINK THAT WILL DO THE WORK, THAN MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU. IT IS BIG.
  • Cons: NONE

Very Large

Dale T., Newegg
9 June 2012
  • Summary: This thing is huge. It barely fit in my case. This will likely not fit in anything smaller than a full tower or performance gaming case, and full ATX motherboard.
  • Pros: It keeps my cpu much cooler than the stock heatsink under load, even overclocked.
  • Cons: Large size means this is not an option for everybody. You can not have RAM modules that have heat sinks on them.

Ridiculously large

Sherry B., Newegg
25 May 2012
  • Summary: This is a poorly engineered piece of junk. Very frustrating that Intel stopped providing HSF with the socket 2011 CPU's leaving us with these kind of choices. Cooler Master has been doing this for a long time, I expected a much better product.
  • Pros: Looks cool?
  • Cons: Huge Blocks first PCIe x16 slot Doesn't fit over RAM without modifying it Taller than the case, side panel bows.

Exactly as Expected

Alex W., Newegg
21 May 2012
  • Summary: After the adjustments and the bios fine tuning there have been no hiccups for just over a month. I need to break down and clean it right now, but I am too lazy and my cpu temps never break 45C. I have this sitting on the amd fx 8120 overclocked to 4.0 ghz.
  • Pros: Saw the bad reviews and was skeptical. I have it in a full tower case and I still had to remove the fan from the side of the case. I knew this heatsink would be big and I was willing to modify the heatsink some to make it fit. You can be brave when you have a friend who is a machinist. Ended up o...
  • Cons: Had to lower the minimum fan speed alarm in my bios. My fan speed was too slow and my mobo would not let my computer boot. Was turning like 550 rpms.

Impressed!!

Isaiah S., Newegg
10 May 2012
  • Summary: 1.) It's HUGE!!! 2.) As someone else stated, it is possible to reverse the side the fan attaches to and the fan direction to a "pull" setup instead of "push". In my situation this would have allowed for crazy ram heat spreaders. 3.
  • Pros: 1.) It's HUGE!!! 2.) It really works!! And i mean REALLY works! My Phenom II X3 720 (2.8ghz) Black Edition that i unlocked to x4 and overclocked to 3.6 ghz was just too much for my old scythe KATANA3 cooler, and even the cooler master GeminII S524 i ordered by accident the the same day as this, t...
  • Cons: 1.) It's HUGE!!! 2.) Even my G.Skill sniper ram was to tall to fit underneath this monster. Had to Switch the side the fan was on and it's direction. 3.) Had to take the side panel fan out of my NXZT phantom case. 4.) Kinda noisy if you can manage to make it work hard. 5.) Was missing the lga wre...
