Big Air and budget cooler with some cons

Jeremy Jurrens, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I'll start out stating, this is a massive CPU cooler. It is the older model of the Noctua cooler, the DH15 being the newer but this cooler is cheaper in price. With that stated, is a better purchase than the DH15 being as you're already limited on how much cooling you can do with air already, both...

i7 4790k

Andrew D., Newegg

  • Summary: I just wish it wasn't as time consuming to install. The fans have to be plugged into the motherboard before installing the heatsink... In fact, this should be the last thing you should put on. This includes the fans that are on the heat sink.
  • Pros: Keeps my processor cool at full load. Hottest my cpu got was 74 degrees Celsius at max load (Prime 95) for 11 hours without any errors. When I came home from work, it was only running at around 65-70 degrees.
  • Cons: Took me an hour or two (not joking to install this).

High Quality, Great Company

Charles C., Newegg

  • Summary: This CPU cooler by Noctua really gets the job done. I was building a new 5th generation Intel system and didn’t want to go with liquid cooling and this one had high marks. Noctua as a company is in Austria and everything about them screams quality.
  • Pros: Awesome cooling Great company, customer service
  • Cons: Size Lack of clearance to PCIe slot

Giant and quiet

Scott O., Newegg

  • Pros: This thing run silent!! This computer sits in a recording studio and wanted the lowest dB fan I could find.
  • Cons: It is so big that it completely covers the ram slots. Changing ram will require removing and reinstalling fan.

Check to make sure memory compatible

James V., Newegg
6 December 2014
  • Summary: I went with a Corsair H105 water cooling system which is a perfect match for my Corsair 750D case ... for an extra $40 I should have done that in the first place.
  • Pros: I am sure this is a great cooler and I did what I thought was my homework pouring through reviews. But I should have checked the size .... :(
  • Cons: This thing is huge and if you want the optimal orientation it will hang over your memory on an Intel 115x board. My high heat sinked Team Extreme memory will not fit even if the front fan on the heat sink is removed. CHECK DIMENSIONS

Great cooler

Justin J., Newegg
22 November 2014
  • Summary: start up temps in my machine are only 20-30 celsius depending on room, fans on back of case and top only get a little bit warm when playing BattleField 4 on Ultra settings.
  • Pros: Keeps it cool, long warranty for high reliability
  • Cons: big, make sure you check the dimensions of your case to make sure it will fit, mine is in a 'Thermaltake V71 core' and it works great.

So friggin huge ...

Adam B., Newegg
4 September 2014
  • Summary: In between fan has to come off to install, but that's easy. The front fan had to be moved up, also easy. If you have an LGA 1150 socket, remove the rubber X from the mobo backplate, same installation as 1156.
  • Pros: ... it's awesome. Lots of heat dissipating surface with nice, quiet fans. Easy install.
  • Cons: Got my fingerprints all over it during installation. I wish the fans were black.
