Really good radiator

Aleena S., Newegg
13 February 2015
  • Summary: I would recommend this to many people
  • Pros: Really good CPU cooler It took 15 degrees Celsius off my AMD FX8350 stock fan
  • Cons: REALLY HARD FAN INSTALLATION. The radiator is easy buttt the fan is really confusing to install and not that powerful.

Amazing cooler!

Samuel W., Newegg
6 January 2015
  • Summary: The install instructions were really vague and confusing because it just shows a picture of the backplate and the mounting holes were akward. i had to google the socket just to make sure i was installing it properly. Please make better instructions
  • Pros: Keeps cpu under 35C on idle Has great airflow Quiet Ascetically pleasing
  • Cons: Really big, can barely fit in my case Install instructions are minimal and frustrating heavy

Big, works well

Vinayak G., Newegg
13 November 2014
  • Summary: I'd suggest purchasing the motherboard, measuring the available volume around and above the CPU and then purchasing this product if you have a micro ATX motherboard. On an ATX board it will fit just fine.
  • Pros: The fan is easy to install, instructions are clear and it looks like it is doing its job well. This fan is being used with a i7 5820K 6C CPU and the processor idles at ~30 degrees C (25 C is the ambient). Have not yet tried it under load and will update the review accordingly.
  • Cons: Big. Probably needed to do the job but yeah, it is pretty big. Also, unlike one reviewer said, it DOES fit on our micro ATX motherboard (EVGA X99 micro). HOWEVER, the first PCIe slot is blocked by the heatsink. The motherboard has a second x16 so it works out. However, if someone gets a different...

Good economical air cooler

Anonymous, Newegg
8 November 2014
  • Summary: Make sure your case is wide enough before buying this thing. I attached this to an Intel 5960X that will be used in a rig dedicated to rendering and video editing. I was only able to reach an overclock 3.4-3.6Ghz. Any more would put temps too high under stress tests.
  • Pros: Economical, Works well for an air cooler.
  • Cons: Is unwieldy, be careful not to stress your MB when attaching it to the CPU and later to your box. If you are buying a new Haswell CPU and hope to OC much, buy a water cooled system instead they run HOT. I did not plan on extreme overclocking so this solution was fine.

Awesome! ...but a tight fit

Joseph P., Newegg
11 August 2014
  • Summary: This is a big cooler in length and depth, but it is also surprisingly squat and not overly tall, so this cooler is a great choice for powerful, compact builds. Just be sure to do some measuring before you purchase and keep all of your shipping materials when you receive it in case it doesn't fit and...
  • Pros: Amazing! - Beastly air cooling - Some of the lowest air temps I've ever seen. I'm getting better temps on this than I did with a big Spire Thermax heatsink. I don't know how or why, but I am. - Solid construction - Great quality fan - very quiet on the lower fan RPM's - Comes with separate therma...
  • Cons: The edges are sharp and can be crushed if you aren't careful! This can also be tricky to install. On my motherboard specifically, with the orientation of the heatsink/fan I needed to use to vent air out of the back of the case, the fan had to be on the memory slot side of the CPU socket. Although...

A pain to install, but works great

Thomas B., Newegg
12 July 2014
  • Summary: TIM: some old Arctic Silver Ceramique CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1225V3 Case: Fractal Design Define R4
  • Pros: It's super quiet, and runs way cooler than the stock Intel cooler. My CPU idles a little under 30 deg C in good weather, and maxes out under 60 deg C under heavy load. Either way, I don't hear the fan. Also, although it's a pain to get on, I'm fairly certain the mounting system would survive many...
  • Cons: Getting the back mounting bracket on was a real pain, and I needed someone else to help me. It is very large; I would not recommend trying to install this in a case that isn't designed for this style of heat sink. Specifically, the motherboard tray cut-out behind the CPU socket on my case was ess...

Gigantic, but cool

Mitchell V., Newegg
16 June 2014
  • Summary: Don't let the size scare you off, this is a great product, but keep in mind that for $10 more you can snag an entry level liquid cooling system.
  • Pros: Keeps my CPU frosty, probably the next best thing before liquid.
  • Cons: You can obviously read the dimensions, but that doesn't really do this beast justice, its like the hulk of heatsinks. I knew it would fit in my case (with about 1/8th inch to spare) but what i didnt count on is it hanging over my RAM, I got lucky that my RAM was relatively low profile, but if it ...

Works well

Anonymous, Newegg
26 May 2014
  • Pros: Drops my AMD CPU temp to 28C from 57-62C w/ stock. This is a very quiet cooler, which is what my original goal was.
  • Cons: Freaggin huge. Had to change the bracket on the bottom of the MB, I didn't realize that I would have to do this when I bought it. But then that's my fault for rushing.

Excelent Cooler

Daniel W., Newegg
8 April 2014
  • Summary: Less mobo sag then you would think for its size
  • Pros: Nice quiet fan, even on an OC'd APU under heavy load,. and with my rear exhaust fan directly in line with the cooler, my Idle tempurature is 0C, with my max load (AC4, Everything at max) being around 60C
  • Cons: As other reviews stated, it is BIG, barely fit in my case, maybe a 1/8 of an inch of clearance.

User Review

raymond b., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Pros: Very quiet and very efficient in keeping the CPU cool, provided you have a high air flow case. If you have a standard case, this CPU cooler is no different then any other and could even not be worth the money.
  • Cons: Without a high airflow case, this cooler is not worth the money or the size it consumes in the case. If you have a high air flow case it is a godsend for keeping your CPU cool with near zero noise.
