Not too shabby

Christopher Lambert, Amazon
6 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to mount on my AM3 Phenom II x4 black edition. I did not read the part where it was for AM2 motherboards. Luckily AM2 is not that different from AM3 mounts. So this will fit on an AM3 and still have clearance. Thermal paste DOES NOT come with this, so make sure you get the paste.

Awesome Heat Sync

Doug M., Newegg
15 August 2012
  • Pros: I have had this fan now for almost two years and never had one issue with heat from my processors. It looks really cool and works better than most stock or OEM parts that I have used in the past.
  • Cons: The con that this product has is that is huge, if you are trying to install this in a mid or mini tower I can almost promise that you will run into problems.

  • Summary: if you have a large full tower, get this unit
  • Pros: This thing is so quiet you dont know its running. it kept my fx60 cool after overclocked and maxed out power to it.
  • Cons: It is very big. i had to move the side fan on my xclio tower to the outside because it kept pushing on the cpu cooler and making noises.

Very nice

Nicholas M., Newegg
17 June 2011
  • Pros: Installed very easily in an Antec 900 case with room left for a 120mm side fan. It is VERY large as other people have said, but looks like a lethal security device that is itching to launch ninja stars at your if you disturb it. Have an AMD 955 OC to 3.8ghz and temps do not go above 60C.
  • Cons: Price, but you pay for the awesome asthetic :)

  • Pros: Looks awesome when lit up inside my coolermaster haf 922 case. Best analogy from my friend is it looks like the matrix glowing inside my computer.
  • Cons: It really is a lot bigger than the pictures make it appear. Cooling isn't super effective either for overclocking but keeps me steady around 70c at 4.2 ghz on my sandybridge.

Massive.

Ben V., Newegg
22 April 2011
  • Summary: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3 G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) XFX HD-687A-ZDBC Radeon HD 6870 Thermaltake Armor+MX VH8000BWS
  • Pros: Massive cooler, make sure you have a case large enough to handle this monster. My CPU never breaks 37c and the cores have reached as low as 17c. Coupled with a thermaltake armor+. Full of win. Ascetically pleasing, looks like a hamster wheel built on razor blades. No, really. It looks like it's b...
  • Cons: On AMD motherboards, you are forced to align one of the intakes in-line with the expulsion fan. I was aiming to have had it blasting air horizontally across the mobo as well as out. This would have been optimal, seeing as my case has a giant 23cm fan that would have force fed air into it. No such...

Killer Design!

  • Summary: Cooling a Intel i5 LGA1156 quad core 2.8g processor on a ASUS P7P55D-E LX motherboard along with 8g of Kingston DDR3 #KHX1600C9D3B1K2/4GX memory. My video review is posted on YouTube under 'rvr2' .
  • Pros: Awesome design! Looks like something from the 'SAW' movies!
  • Cons: Huge! Had to mount my 120mm side case fan to the outside of the side panel cause I couldn't close it anymore with it mounted on the inside like before..

Anonymous, Newegg
12 February 2011
  • Summary: My core i7 2600k is running at 4.6 idle at 2.8 and when running prime 95 it average 72 degrees.
  • Pros: It works perfect for the 1155 socket. I have a core i7 2600k running at 4.6 stable
  • Cons: THIS THING IS HUGE!!! I don't know how on earth I am going to get my ram installed. I currently have 1 4gb stick because my other sticks heat spreader is to tall GSkill 1600 4gb sticks Also could they have made this so dang hard to install. I have decent tech knowledge and it still took me 30 min...
