Ok for the money...Not what I expeceted from Corsair
RALPH B "RGB", Amazon

Summary: Doesn't allow air flow direction to the back of my case..Disappointing..It took a while to adjust so it sat right on top of my Phenom II X4...Very simple, very light and on the cheap side...It however does work pretty well once you spend the time adjusting it..Good buy for the money...
Excerpt: "seems" to function fine; the mobo was DOA, so I can't say for certain offered instructions are terrible (wasted time putting installing many occasions) don't attempt to use this in a case ɟ.5" wide; it won't fitif you get this, ignore the provided directions and go to the web site (link is elsewhere in these evaluations)
Excerpt: Good build and very sturdy Bulky, which produced the installation type of a hassle. When seated, the idle temps on my i7 950 have been about 36 C, 1-2 degrees cooler than what I get with the stock cooler. Not acceptable.
Excerpt: Cooler worked Awesome whilst it was functional. Kept exceptional temps AMD Mounting Hardware is Junk. I installed this cooler with no a hiccup. Ran the cooler for sometime but all of a sudden Im playing WoW and Snap the AMD Bracket in my opinion was Chintzy from the Starting Broke in Half.I dont think the AMD Bracket is Capable of holding the Cooler + two 120mm Fans.
Excerpt: Large, feels relatively sturdy. The installation was considerably easier and much easier than my prior hyper 212. Primarily based off critiques and such, pretty confident overall performance will be on par...nevertheless The fan...is SO loud (deducted an egg). I wanted my new personal computer to be pretty quiet. My builds tend to be "budget-minded high finish".
Summary: J'ai acheté ce produit car j'avais vu des test et des commentaires vantant son silence (ou son bénéfice silence + perf /cout) Au final je regrette car: - il n'est pas du tout silencieux: c'est le composant le plus bruyant de ma config. - il ne permet pas a ma carte mère (asus P8Z77-V) Pro de gérer sa vitesse en fonction de la température, ce qui aurait permis de ne pas faire tourner ce ventilateur inutilement 90% du temps. Au final j'ai carrément débranché.
