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.
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. Amazon falls to give dimensions on just how big this product really is and unless you take the time to venture to other sites and find one not giving them in metric units you'll see that this heat...
Summary: I install like the manual said every thing ok, after 6 months I noticed a litle noise in the fan so I checked and I saw a broked screw, thx God my I7 still alive, i will fix making a new screw in the future. Thermalmake our compure are not toys, so please make the things with the best quality snd try not to save some dollar for your pocket making bad quality stuff.
Summary: This is a very big cooler, bigger than the Original Frio. my dilemma is, HUGE heatsink that cover 3 ram slots! and i have a low profile rams with a small heatspreaders there was a contact and i couldn't put any pressure on the cooler screws!
