Summary: I have a AMD A10 5800k with 8 GB RAM in a ATX Mid tower, i live in Central America the weather are dry and dusty with 30C-36C temperature, no AC in my room only a fan, my pc with cpu fan I achieved temperatures of 45C(idle)-60C, 60C when i playing mmorpg's. With this I now achieve temperatures of 33C-41C(max). Thats a huge change, first time using liquid cpu cooler, easy to install, is not really noise. I highly recommend this cooler. Great price for you got.
Summary: Works great. No more warnings of CPU heat. Hard to install the back plate if following the instructions and using the same holes as marked. Forums helped to give confidence that eventually the screws would line up to mount the device.
Summary: Love it . Cools great for standard PC and is very quiet. Keeps the processor darn near room temp. Kind of a pistol to install however in a basic case unless you get one already equipped with a 120mm fan The little radiator is just a little too big to really fit smoothly in tight places. Guess there is no way they can change but so much and still be cheap and mass produced.
Summary: So I've had the hardest time keeping my AMD FX-8120 cool for some reason. I've went through two different air coolers and finally decided to look into water cooling after my CPU got up to 92C (and shut itself down) whilst trying to encode a video. And while I wasn't really expecting a huge improvement on my temps, this water cooler has definitely convinced me that I should probably never go back to air cooling ever again.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for a stock Alienware cooler. I chose this one over more expensive models simply because the mounting kit was similar and I hoped to mount it without pulling the motherboard to replace the back-plate. It worked. But the ease of installation aside, the cooler works perfectly and is every bit as capable as the one that came stock in the Alienware.
