again not worth it

Zhiwen L., Newegg
20 June 2007
  • Summary: again not worth $20. My advice: don't listen to those who declare temp dropped 20c by applying this. they are pimps of the manufacture. All in all not worth it.
  • Pros: lower 3-5c
  • Cons: sit very very loose on the chipset and very difficult to mount it on.

OK

  • Summary: For what I paid,I hoped that it would stay in place if it was lightly touched,but it doesn't.
  • Pros: Works ok I guess,but haven't been able to tell if there is any benefit over stock HS.
  • Cons: Poor retention system,price,no fan mounting provisions.

Good but issues

Anonymous, Newegg
18 June 2007
  • Summary: If I had to do it again I wouldn't.
  • Pros: Lots of fins to push air through. Lowered NB temps by about 5c, with a 60mm fan installed on the heatsink.
  • Cons: Does NOT mount properly on an Asus P5N-E SLI 650i board. It does mount, but you have to twist it some. Mounting ended up being quite a pita. Will not mount on the P5N with any aftermarket CPU cooler installed (Tuniq, Ninja, Big Typhoon etc...)

Iffy mounting, mixed results

Shahram O., Newegg
16 June 2007
  • Summary: I got this to get a grip on nForce 680 NB thermal issues. I ended up pulling this off and putting the old heatpipe back on.
  • Pros: Good performance if seated perfectly.
  • Cons: Seating right is very difficult... Anything touching the heatsink (even lightly) will cause it to lose contact surface due to the leverage force/length of the heatsink.

ok but not that great

Zhiwen L., Newegg
15 May 2007
  • Summary: I don't understand how people could declare it lowers their NB by 20c. Are you frying eggs on yor NB before applying this thing? It does lower the NB temp on my DS3, but merely 3-5c. before: 43-46c, after: 41c-42c. If you don't overclock a lot, save your money or invest in CPU HSF.
  • Pros: Lowered NB 3-5c, that is it.
  • Cons: expensive. not worth it.

why me

Adam G., Newegg

  • Summary: unless i shocked the bios chip which is right near the nforce, idk, reflash? Im too mad dissappointed and frustrated that i fried a board ive been reusing for two years.
  • Pros: could in theory mount a fan, although those wire ties are too thick, would keep an nforce pretty frosty with its size and heatpipes
  • Cons: well im sure it is keeping my nforce4 sli pretty cold now that it shorted out on installation somehow, maybe static

  • Excerpt: весьма спорная вещь - большая цена, площадь рассеивания маленькая но охлаждает сносно.. брать не советую
  • Pros: хромированный, красивый, чётко крепится сидит, наличие жёсткого болтового крепления
  • Cons: сломал им чипсет! будте осторожны! Очень не удобное креплений к плате!!! планки крепления короткие для чипсета северного моста в большинстве случаев, угловатое крепление тугое т.к. размер чипсета маленький легко можно повредить при установке, или скорей при лёгком перекосе задеть его случайно п...

  • Excerpt: Ставив своєму другу на північний міст Р35, загалом кулулер дуже якісно виконаний і ефективний, але:
  • Pros: Дуже якісний проукт за свою ціну, ефективний, можливісь устновити вентилятор 80х80х25.
  • Cons: Термопаста схожа на білий понос, дуже незручне кріплення, основа замала для північного Р35.

  • Excerpt: В инструкции пишут - "установите крючки, потом закрутите". Э... А крючки будут в вертикальном положении под воздействием силы сами стоять?! Короче установка геморная.
  • Pros: Недорог, но...
  • Cons: эфективность под вопросом., Система крепления, особенно на крючки, как на Asus P5W DH - не для слабонервных.
