Impressive cooling, fan required

lowrez, Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: The description on Amazon led me to believe that this is a fanless cooler, thus not requiring a fan. Wrong. The unit DOES require a fan, but does not come with one. I was looking for something silent. If I had known a fan was required I would not have purchased it.

Keeps CPUs cool

Dustin S., Newegg
21 September 2013
  • Summary: Bought this 5 years ago and still running strong.
  • Pros: Keeps my CPU cool at 4.2 GHz. (4.4 GHz still cool, but I can't get it stable with voltages I'm comfortable with.) Doesn't have space issues with RAM close to CPU like a normal heatsink. Easier to maintain than custom water cooling. Looks very nice in an Antec 1200 case.
  • Cons: The mounting brackets are terrible. Very flimsy and barely able to secure as well as it needs to. I know the H80i brackets are much better, shame that wasn't out when I built my system. With using both push and pull fans it is hard to fit alongside a side mounted fan. Had to cut unneeded plastic ...

Beast Cooler

Jennifer D., Newegg
27 June 2013
  • Summary: You cant get any better for the price.
  • Pros: Put some high power fans on this and you will be surprised. I have gotten better temps than a friend with an h100 and stock fans. My 3770k has been at 4.6 for a long time now, and the highest I've hit ever was about 75C when not in an extremely hot area.
  • Cons: None.

Better than anything I've had before

D. Walker "DSLRGuy", Amazon
29 April 2013
  • Summary: I've been building my own custom computers for over 15 yrs. I've always used a 100% air cooled system up until now. With recent high end cpu clock speeds in the 4ghz range air coolers have gotten ridiculously large and hard to work around.

Quiet, fit well.

B. Rowland, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: Took me a bit to figure out how to mount it... But when i did, it fit firmly and obviously seated against the processor. My cpu temps are constant. Hoses barely reach to my box's exhaust port.

Hey turn on the heat its freezing in here!

MD, Amazon
20 April 2013
  • Summary: Ok, I'll admit I made a mistake! I bought this without any fans and ended up using my case fans to push air through it. Surprisingly, the temp of my cpu drop 50 degrees. It rarely goes about 119. Mother board is now staying around 109.

Good once you get it mounted.

William A. Stanko, Amazon
30 March 2013
  • Summary: The mounting instructions are somewhat lacking. Even after watching youtube it was difficult. They aren't clear on how the back plate mounts. On my sabertooth z77 I had to twist the plate to line up with the mounting holes.
