Terrible design.

Valerie S., Newegg
11 March 2014
  • Pros: .
  • Cons: Be wary of this heatsink. Its design will probably not let you use the 2 closest RAM modules, as the hit sink begins entirely too low. Very disappointing.

Waste of Money

Ryan M., Newegg
25 December 2012
  • Summary: Thermaltake as a company banks on brand name sometimes, but they do make coolers that are competitive in the price/value/performance arenas. I think my experience may not be indicative of what you'd get for this unit in general either (wrong orientation disadvantage, fan noise might have been a...
  • Pros: I am not able to think of a single item that can be filed under 'Pro' for this heatsink that is not provided by other products in a similar price class - even by the same company. I don't think this is a failure of Thermaltake, rather just a failure of this product in my situation.
  • Cons: I used this heatsink with a SilverStone RAVEN RV02B-EW case, which uses an unusual design: the rear of the motherboard, which normally points out the rear end of the case, instead points out the top end of the case, with hot air venting directly upward. When this heatsink was oriented in this pos...

Uh ok

Michael Conway, Amazon

  • Summary: Well I bought this because it was so powerful and would keep my cpu cool. It doesn't and I should have brought a cheaper more effective cpu. What a waste of money. Now if I want to send it back i can enjoy weeks without a pc as you need cpu cooler to run pc. Awesome. I love Capitalism.

FOR THE ONES NOT TAKING NOTICE

profinus, Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: Although i'm sure that this is a very good and effective heat sink for any performance nut, one thing you need to absolutely, positively make sure that this device will fit well in your computer case. Honestly i think this product was intended for full sized and 4x4 cases only.

meh

Richard L., Newegg
14 December 2011
  • Summary: if you're going with the 2011 socket, get a corsair or intel water cooler for cpu for the same price and get the 2011 socket hardware from the manufacturer, it will be well worth the wait and give you more piece of mind when you spend good money on a cpu.
  • Pros: two mammoth fans, easy to install and control, provides good cooling.
  • Cons: DOES NOT COME WITH SOCKET 2011 HARDWARE, if you buy this you will need to order it from thermaltake directly, it's at no cost, aside from the convenience, and thermaltake will only ship ground to you. Even after getting the 2011 socket hardware it fits a bit poorly and leans when you have your ca...

Horrible cooler for LGA2011

Hayssam N., Newegg
26 November 2011
  • Summary: I ended up going with a Corsair H80 liquid cooling. You'd think since it's liquid it's harder to install, but it was much easier and more effective than this junk. I'll be RMAing this.
  • Pros: -Plastic is removable..?
  • Cons: -Too big - had to remove TWO sticks of DDR3. -Is "technically" compatible with LG2011, but it's horrible. The instructions for LGA2011 are completely vague, read next point. -The instruction manual doesn't include LGA2011. They were too lazy to include it. Instead they added another mere paper fu...
