Works great

Jeffrey, Amazon

  • Summary: I have this in my Antec 900. Although that case is huge, this blocks the side door from closing in my setup if the 120mm fan is installed in the window.

Had to modify but its ok

  • Summary: Had to bend the fins up on one side because of my corsair vengeance ram that isn't low profile and has heat sink fins that make it twice as high as standard ram. an oversight for the corsair in my opinion. also had to remove one corner of the fan cage to match the fins.

Frosty!

  • Summary: This has been a great cooler. It keeps my temps nice and low and the stock fans arent too loud on a medium setting. Corsair really is making some awesome components these days. Word of warning though if you have a relatively small case or cramped mobo you will want to double check the measurements...

Good for the price

Josh, Amazon

  • Summary: It keeps my processor very cool as long as you don't use the compound it comes with... I used that at first and it seemed to be running a little hot, then went out and bought arctic silver and it now keeps it a whole 10 degrees cooler.

Nice but not perfect

Lantana Al, Amazon

  • Summary: I just upgraded an Intel OEM CPU cooler to this unit after previously installing a "ZALMAN Sz Cpu Cooler" on another machine. The ZALMAN was an easier install. The Corsair was more difficult, requiring a backplate install and the manual was lacking in detail.

Nice Cooler

Online Tech Shopper, Amazon

  • Summary: Does the job well. However, the instructions are weak and a little mechanical aptitude goes a long way. I would suggest figuring out how it goes together before you install the cooler.

Works great!

ZeroCool, Amazon

  • Summary: My stock AMD Athlon II X3 445 heat sink got pretty inadequate when I was able to core unlock it to a Phenom II X4. Temperatures would easily go beyond 60C with prime95 and even with PWM control the 70mm fan was pretty squeaky at low speeds.

A basic microprocessor air-cooling unit

A. H., Amazon
8 September 2010
  • Summary: I recently installed a Corsair A50 on a Phenom II 965 BE processor (3.4 ghz quad core). It was simple to install on the AM3 socket -- it includes a mounting bracket that simply clips the unit firmly into place against the microprocessor.
