Noctua is always amazing

Anonymous, Newegg
12 November 2015
  • Pros: Keeps rig nice and cool. I had one previously on a different set up and it performs very well. Kept it mostly under 47C even on high loads. Very happy with the company.
  • Cons: Colors. Could use some customability to match colors of setups. =/

Fan-tastic, as expected

Alexander D., Newegg
17 September 2015
  • Summary: This is a case of "you get what you pay for." It costs a lot, but it is basically the best product on the market in this specific category.
  • Pros: Versatile, compact, quiet, high performing, multiple configurations, easy to install, high quality, lots of extra accessories, including a screwdriver. Downward fan helps to cool vrm's. Very very high quality fans.
  • Cons: It might block a ram slot, depending on your motherboard and overall configuration. Price is a bit high unless on sale.

Parts are Cheap

Christopher R., Newegg
6 September 2015
  • Pros: Fit my mini-ITX ASRock mobo perfect
  • Cons: Broke two fins of the large fan on top. Heat piping is cheap and easily bendable. All parts seem cheap & flimsy. Had to purchase new top fan at a local computer store. Went with something sturdier

Highly recommended for quiet, powerful cooling esp. for AMD FX-8350 - replace that annoying stock CPU cooler!

Kaizoku! "scatterbrained", Amazon
17 August 2015
  • Summary: After identifying my CPU cooler (stock AMD FX-8350) as the main cause of noise pollution in my case, it was time to do something about it! At first I didn't want to go through the "hassle" of taking too many things apart (case, remove motherboard tray, undo cables that might be in the way, cleaning...

Yes, the colours jump out at you

Leow Yen Lin, Amazon

  • Summary: But you know what, it is a damn good cooler. Performance is excellent, more so than I expected from its setup in my mini-ITX case. CPU max temps of 65 C. You know you're buying a quality product when you choose Noctua. The amount of accessories included is admirable.

Quiet and cool

Patrick de Man, Amazon

  • Summary: Wow. The next time I hear a jet engine, I will be in an airplane. My Dell XPS 9100 was so noisy I could not sleep in the same room with the computer on. It was bothersome while doing work or watching movies.

Quiet and Cool. What more do you need?

christian g., Newegg
25 June 2015
  • Summary: I know its Noctua's thing to have the brown scheme, but I dig it. More of a statement than a clash of colors.
  • Pros: Very quiet and keeps my CPU cool. This thing get a lot of weird looks seeing how its flat on the CPU instead of being on its side like most aftermarket coolers, but its a beast. I bought it for a mid-tower case and it fits great, works great. Would buy for another system in a heartbeat.
  • Cons: Had some RAM clearance issues for a bit, but I'll chalk that up to my MOBO layout.

This cooler is amazing!

Chris Canepa, Amazon
24 May 2015
  • Summary: Before I had a Zalman cooler installed with idle temps in the low 20's which is pretty good but under load my temps would reach into the upper 60's. With this cooler my idle temp gets down to 8 degrees and the max temp under load are in the mid 40's. What a huge difference. It is also very quiet.

Top notch

Chris C., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • Summary: Installed after replacing lesser quality coolers for my 17 Photoshop machine. You get what you pay for in this department and Noctua delivers a solid product.
  • Pros: Very high quality parts and slick packaging. Super quiet.
  • Cons: None. Minor comment; you are paying a lot for the box.
