Read the TDP Advisory!!!

Brian S., Newegg
22 April 2013
  • Summary: I managed to mount the 120mm fan to the bottom, since I have a small case and it seems to help the temps, but I still can't stay stable when running Boinc or any stress test.
  • Pros: Nicely designed, quiet, comes with thermal paste along with all the mounting hardware you could ever possibly need. Very low profile in single fan mode.
  • Cons: Stay away if you have a 120W TDP Processor!!!! If you check the manufacturers website they tell you that you can only use this with a 120W TDP AMD processor if you have good case flow! And the single fan operation mode won't work at all! I found this out the hard way when trying to run single fan mode with an 8320. Works great 99% of the time, but when you stress test it the system will crash due to overheating.

Runs cool

Ben P., Newegg
9 December 2012
  • Pros: Runs quiet, CPU (i5 3570k) is in the 20s to low 30s idle and around 40 under load on Borderlands 2, Planetside 2, Skyrim type games. Instructions for three socket types, were relatively easy to follow, might be a bit difficult for a first build - but youtube has plenty of content if need be.
  • Cons: Large with both fans installed, had to remove cooling fins from 2 ram chips, but no issues with motherboard temp have resulted.

Noctua NH-L12

Игорь, Rozetka

  • Conclusion: Почти все отлично кроме ужасной термо-пасты которая не липнет к поверхности а скатывается в катышки при нанесении. Нужно учитывать габариты. На некоторых материнках усложняет доступ к разьемам питания. Если память имеет радиаторы - кулер может блокировать манипуляции с ней.
  • Pros: Отличное качество, отличные инструкции, богатая комплектация.
  • Cons: Термопасту - в мусор сразу.

  • Summary: Достоинства Качество изготовления, шлифовка поверхности на уровне, продуманность крепления, (на сокет 1155) его можно быстро ставить/снимать откручивая 2 винта/зажима, вентиляторы снимать вовсе не обязательно, в комплекте идёт изогнутая формой "Г" отвертка, на другие сокеты ставить не пробовал, в инструкции на глянцевой бумаге отражены все стадии сборки, вопросов по самому процессу не возникало.
