Great cooler

Nestor R., Newegg

  • Summary: Installed on an i7 4790k and an asus maximus vii hero. This thing is pretty massive. Make sure you have enough room in your case.
  • Pros: Very quiet. Great cooling. Great build quality. Doesn't block ram slots.

Easy Install and quiet!

  • Summary: The cooler also does not over hang into the area for the RAM. Worked perfectly. CPU never heats up even when over clocking.

A beast in both senses

Zach L., Newegg
23 June 2014
  • Summary: - Check the compatibility list. It's pretty comprehensive for each cooler and it will state whether something will work with quirks or not at all. They won't sell you something that won't work for you motherboard.
  • Pros: - I cannot believe how much this thing cools... it almost seems like magic.
  • Cons: - This will be the first review I've made that has no major cons. This thing is simply amazing.

Quiet and cool

SR, Amazon
22 June 2014
  • Summary: This was an easy install. Keeps the CPU of my hypervisor cool, while running some systems that run at high CPU load. The system runs all day everyday in my living room, but never notice any fan noise, even late at night when everyone is in bed.

Debated between this and liquid cooling

RC, Amazon
22 June 2014
  • Summary: Was leaning towards liquid cooling of my 4770k but after reading any reviews on this unit I decided to give it a try. I also added the optional NF-A15 fan to run this cooler in a push/pull configuration. To my surprise when I run a game or other graphics intensive applications (clocked at 4.2Ghz) my processor now runs 20 to 22C cooler than the stock Intel cooler (clocked at 3.5Ghz). It is very quiet and is of exceptional quality.

Big, Quiet, Efficient

Gregory Scott Boccia, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: No issues with this card. Installed easily by following the directions. Didn't have to remove the motherboard to mount the bracket, it sat right into the AM3+ previous bracket slots. Screws down nice and tight, flipped the fan the way I needed it and will likely toss in an extra one down the line for a push-pull. Cools incredibly well, dropped 10C from an older Zalman 9700 and is much quieter, don't even hear it with the case closed.

Really tall but very effective

Paul M, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: I placed this on my 2011 CPU in an Antec P183 case and it was too tall without removing the side fan. However, it keeps the CPU cool and runs at a low RPM ~590-610 RPMs. Make sure you have room and can adjust your CPU monitoring in the BIOS if you choose this cooler. It has performed flawlessly and is actually quieter than the water cooler it replaced.

5c above ambient temps with a mild OC (4.3Ghz on 15 4670k)

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: Title says it all, very happy with the cooling, whisper quiet too, PWM has it running around 700 rpm on push config. 28c on idle (23c ambient) 55c under typical gaming load. I'm an official Noctua fanboy now.
