Way too big

Anonymous, Newegg
12 April 2011
  • Summary: If it says it fits an ATX mobo and case, it should fit. But, it doesn't. It's a pretty cool looking design, and looks like it would perform well, but unless you built your computer in a laundry basket, it might not fit.
  • Pros: This thing is huge.
  • Cons: It's way too huge.

  • Pros: Good build quality.
  • Cons: Wouldn't fit my ASRock 870 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard. The black base plat would have had to have been cut with a blow torch or some metal saw to get it to fit over that white rectangle around the cpu. What in the world. Also, WOW: THIS THING IS HEAVY! So heavy it...

Poor quality control

James J., Newegg
16 November 2010
  • Summary: To add insult to injury, I now have to pay $11 to ship it back. That's 25% of the unit's original cost. This is HIGHLY unfair to the customer. If you buy a defective product at a store, do they charge you for returning it?
  • Pros: Every review puts it near the top in terms of performance. Other than the heatsink being completely bent out of shape, apparently due to poor quality control at the factory, the materials seem to be high quality.
  • Cons: When I opened the package, I saw that the heatsink was completely deformed. The unit appears to have been shipped that way from the factory. I can understand some minor defects in a product, but this was beyond ridiculous. Needless to say, I will never buy another one of their products. I just ho...
