Pros: love the looks i have it in open case on AMD 720x3 running 4cores an over clocked to 3.5 with huge voltage hike keeps cpu no higher then 58c running prime95 my zalman water cool did the same in my closed case
Cons: fan control wire is short would be a pain in closed case
Summary: Be sure to confirm that you're using the right brackets...there are two very similar (in size) brackets...and I was installing on 1156 socket...just make sure you unpacked the right ones (I didnt the first time. lol) Also, be sure it fits in your case. It goes right up to the (width) edges on mine.
Pros: -20 degees (c) on all cores after installation at sustained 100% load. (I was running at 100c...now between 80-82c). Motherboard sensor is consistent with -20c as well. Idle is around 25c on the motherboard sensor, 38ish on the cores. It took up all of the available space in my case (its biiiiig)...
Summary: Immediately after I removed this cooler from the box, the "do not remove this sticker or else void warranty" sticker fell off from wherever it was. I found it torn in two on the table.
Pros: keeps my cpu frosty, fist (just barely) in my mid tower, looks awesome, quietest fan in my case. It's the first thing my friends comment on when they see my rig. It's an eye catcher for sure. Modding this cooler is turning out to be super fun too. I've enjoyed all of it.
Cons: red leds look dumb in my blue lit case, wires are awful (see other thoughts)
Pros: I love this fan. I was having some overheating issues with my i7-2600k chip in a micro ATX case. There really was not enough cooling capacity with the stock fan in a micro case. It was easy to install. I researched the height of the fan to make sure it would fit inside. I had to drill 6 holes on ...
Pros: I have this on top of a i7 2600k, overclocked to 4ghz, and this keeps it at 35-39 degrees while gaming! which it almost 12 degrees cooler than my friends CPU with water-cooling. It's also very quiet to boot!
Pros: I had my doubts about going back from water cooling to a fan heat sink combo.. Well i purchased this, and it is awesome. I have never had any problems since the day i got it. 12/17/2011. It keeps my rig cool at 54F to 73F Under a load. Never a issue at all.. Will keep buying instead of water caus...
