  • Summary: It's so quiet, it's difficult for me to tell when the computer is on now. It does fit in a mini-itx, but heads-up: depending on your specific motherboard and case (bitfenix prodigy for me), you'll have to have the fan a few notches higher than usual to give clearance for the memory.

LGA 1150, First time computer builder. Seems to be solid.

Kevin W., Newegg
18 March 2015
  • Summary: Only con is my input isn't too weighted since I am new to the knowledge base of computer components.
  • Pros: -seems to work -My idle CPU temp is 24-25 C. Unsure how to check in game (cause I am a noob) -Assembly not too complicated -Noctua is 1337 -comes with thermal compound
  • Cons: -Super old model in tech years

Amazing CPU Cooler

Ernesto m., Newegg
1 February 2015
  • Summary: Without the "Anti Vibration" Strips it doesn't really vibrate, and it stays REALLY cool with only ONE fan, so I imagine you'll get even better cooling with the 2 fans on, my motherboard could only support 3 fans, (Including the CPU fan and the fans already in the case) So I couldn't use the 2 fans,...
  • Pros: Upgrade from Normal Intel CPU Cooler to this cooler, it's amazing! - It comes with 2 fans - You have the option to mount only 1 fan - Is compatible with the most popular LGA slots (1150, 1155, etc. etc.) - Never seen my CPU go above 50C under heavy load, with ONE fan, imagine 2. - The heat sink i...
  • Cons: Just some little complaints, - It came with anti vibration strips which I didn't really know how to place them, and the instructions didn't really say how to put them on, so I didn't. - The fans are not controllable, they only use 3 pins instead of 4 so it doesn't let you customize the fan settings.

Awesome cooling!!

Nicholas P., Newegg
14 January 2015
  • Pros: Replacing a modern h60 so my build can fit inside a new case when it arrives. Temps w/the Noctua 92mm are 5c higher than the h60 (both using push pull). Quite impressive really.. easy install, very high quality!! Nice metal case badge. Intel G3258 @ 4.6Ghz 75c w/ Noctua 92mm.
  • Cons: Nothing.. this thing oozes quality.

Cool As Cucumber

Alexander Scott, Amazon
30 December 2014
  • Summary: It brought the chip temps down about 10C (from 49-53 to 38-41), I was super pleased. I got some much needed life from my i7 950.

Great cooling loads and static idles

TINA L., Newegg
13 December 2014
  • Pros: First build and it's nice effeciency on cooling. a AMD 6300 FX stays at 37-39*C idle depending on temp of house and on high loads is 45-48 *C I recommend this on first build for its price. Cooling profecient and sturdy
  • Cons: it's difficult to assemble so make sure you pay attention to the directions. if it's installed wrong it will not touch the processor, and the processor will shut off on heat in 10 seconds or less with start up. Keep an eye on that and you shall stay solid!

  • Summary: This cooler is extremely silent especially with the additional capacitors they included to slow the fan speeds. Also I was able to keep cool temperatures while overclocking with I wasn't using the extra capacitors.

great CPU cooler

Paul H., Newegg
27 November 2014
  • Summary: CPU coolers are one of the trickiest parts of building or upgrading a system. Installing it, like any CPU cooler with the main board already in the case, takes some work AND PATIENCE. Your case has to have a cut out in back to expose the back side of the main board which most modern ATX cases have.
  • Pros: This cooler reduced my CPU temps from 150 f to 90 f. I wish I had installed this unit from the beginning. It is a TIGHT FIT next to fully populated RAM modules with heat spreaders, but it did fit (just barely). The fans are quiet - set up in a push-pull arrangement. Decent, straight forward instr...
  • Cons: Other than the tight fit next to the RAM, none.

User Review

Henry P., Newegg
14 November 2014
  • Summary: Installed this in an InWin 901 case with Core i7-4790K processor. Idle temperature dropped by 10C and load temperature dropped by 20C. This is not a difficult install, contrary to what some people are saying. My case is relatively tight and I had no issues with installation at all.
  • Pros: Very high quality. Easy to install. Includes thermal compound. Quiet. Significantly lowers temperatures compared to stock cooler.
  • Cons: Wish it came with PWM fans.
