Summary: My system runs about at the same temperature as it did before, using the stock heat sink on an AMD Atholon II x4 2.5Ghz, at idle I sit at about 23 centigrade. Under max load (Using Prime95 for 24 hours) I hit about 55 centigrade tops, fan turbo never kicked in (Running ontop of a Phenom II x4 970)...
Pros: Great cooler, looks amazing. Very quiet, rather easy to install.
Cons: Hard to understand instructions (Not that I needed them, but if you do they are a bit hard to understand as it is printed in mostly foreign languages) Fan was a bit hard to clip on without taking out my GPU but that is not big deal.
Summary: I used Scythe SCMG-2100 cooler for another build and it's mounting system for 1155 is much better. Too bad it's currently out of stock.
Pros: Not sure, didn't get to use it.
Cons: I agree with other reviewers that push-pins (at least for 1155/I7 socket) are a joke. They're very flimsy and you likely to break something while trying to install them as you'll try to push them harder than you should. Will be returning mine for sure.
Summary: Scythe has amazed me, again. This time with Yasya. I am using this with AMD Phenom II X6 1100T @3.8 GHz . With this sink/fan I could actually go higher than 3.8 GHz, but I just want my system to remain extra stable even in hot weather and at somewhat high room temperature.
Pros: Exceptional cooling ability; quiet; high quality fan; nice look
Cons: Installation is not difficult, but it does take more time than your average cooler; cannot access memory slots in my motherboard after installing this cooler.
Summary: Excellent buy, beautiful product, outrageous results. Buy this Immediately!
Pros: Simply put, this fan is the most attractive HSF I have ever laid my eyes on. The fin design is something that must be seen in person. After you get over gawking at the sheer beauty, you find yourself looking at temps that are unheard of. I am running a Phenom 1090t @ 4ghz and idling at 97F with P...
Cons: Installation for fan using clips was a little maddening; however, the time spent was less than 3 minutes troubleshooting.
