Great Cooling, but very loud

KC C., Newegg
1 February 2014
  • Summary: Why do they even ship processors with those awful heatsink and fans?
  • Pros: Cooled a hot i7 920 (d0) from stock 2.67ghz @ 50-60c idle to a whopping OC 3.9ghz @ 40c idle.
  • Cons: You have to manually crank up the fans with the attached controller. And when you do crank up the fans, this thing is VERY LOUD.

Really good

Clement T., Newegg
21 December 2013
  • Summary: Besides the fact that it will most likely take over one of your ram slot, it's also a huge cooler. On my Corsair C70 case, it fits just right but it left me just 1/4" between its top and the lexan of my case. Overall I am really pleased with the performance of this cooler with my setup.
  • Pros: It works really well in my Corsair C70 case with just two fans other than the CPU cooler ones. The stock fans are great, quiet, keep my 4770K between 32/36C idling. Goes up to about 45/49 while gaming. I've never seen it go above 50 so far.
  • Cons: It will block one of your ram slot on an MSI Z87-G45. I read the previous reviews so I was aware this could've happened. Also I don't think this can be helped by running low profile ram because the actual cooler is a bit low. I do feel a bit of vibration coming from it but nothing alarming in my ...

Nice CPU cooling design

Stephen W., Newegg
15 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a very well designed CPU cooler, just wish it worked with the motherboard and 4 sticks of ram.
  • Pros: Great cooling fan with dual fans n adjustable speed switch for both.
  • Cons: With both fans installed cannot install fourth ram chip. Had to leave fan off to install all four ram chips on ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0.

Still a valid option

Roger, Amazon

  • Summary: Usually sits on top of first stick of ram if you use thicker fans. The 48 watt deltas worked and fit just the same, though 250CFM seemed to not make a difference compared to the stock fans after 80 degrees.

User Review

Dawes C., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: This keeps my CPU cool and is nearly silent when tuned properly, but keep the cons in mind. Once you set the speed, you won't be changing it without getting back inside the case.
  • Pros: Generally quiet (see cons) Keeps things very cool
  • Cons: Is very loud when turned up past a certain threshold. Speed controlled by a dial as opposed to PWM. Mine didn't come with the needed parts to mount the second fan. Fan blocks one of my DIMMs

HUGE

Jeremy S., Newegg
10 September 2013
  • Summary: If you don't mind the stress of heavy weight on your processor or motherboard, then go for it. Aside from that, I'm thinking that because of the weight this beast offers, your best bet is to lay your tower on its side.
  • Pros: This cooling unit does in fact move tons and tons of air! I used this cooling unit for about a year before I went to another chassis and then due to the design of my new tower, I couldn't use this beast anymore. If you're looking for something that will move a lot of air (and doesn't make too muc...
  • Cons: This thing is HUGE, ENORMOUS, GIGANTIC, MONSTROUSLY LARGE and HEAVY! It put a LOT of stress on my processor and motherboard but it held up for about a year before I went to another chassis. I couldn't use this thing in the new chassis due to the new tower design.

Really large fan!

Tuyen, Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: The fan is really nice! Don't forget that it has an optional second fan for dual cooling. However, it is so big, it extends over my RAM slots. So unless I remove one of the fans, I won't be able to move up to 32 GB of ram.. :( Only 16 GB at max, with two 8 GB.

A Very Large Cooler

William C., Newegg
2 May 2013
  • Summary: Although it's bulky and awkward, it's still an amazing unit and I definitely recommend it.
  • Pros: With two 120mm fans, this unit moves heat quickly and effectively.
  • Cons: However, on a standard ATX LGA 2011 socket board, this heatsink with both fans attached covers memory slots B_2 and D_2. Also, in height, this unit extends from the board to the edge of the case.

Athlon II x6 1055t went from 57 degrees @ idle to 42

clark Schmidtke, Amazon
1 May 2013
  • Summary: As the title says, I had a stock cooler on my Athlon II x6 1055t and my idle temps went from 57 (idle) and 61 (heavy load) to 42 (idle) 45 (heavy load). The fans on the unit are only turned up halfway. I haven't over clocked it yet. will update review when I do.
