125w

Anonymous, Newegg
21 July 2014
  • Summary: I have three of these hs/f mounted on AMD 125 watt CPUs. Thermaltake says these hs/f are good up to a 95w CPU but they run cool on my non-overclocked game machines.
  • Pros: Quiet, large heat sink with lots of fins. Installed with no problems.
  • Cons: None

Can't cool a 125W CPU

Nicholas D., Newegg
10 July 2014
  • Summary: This is probably ok for any dual core or non phenom chips but when it comes to 125W or anything close to that get something else.
  • Pros: Very quiet, Seems like it's made well
  • Cons: Won't keep my 125W Phenom 9850 cool even with better than stock thermal paste. Idles at 45C and under load goes up to 82C and hits the thermal shutdown of the CPU. No copper at all, It's all aluminum which is inferior for heat transfer/dispersion.

  • Summary: It was kind of a PITA to install, as I had to do some modifications to the motherboard itself to get the clips for the heatsink to secure everything properly. Still, the efforts were worth it.
  • Pros: 20C drop in CPU temp
  • Cons: Installation in ASUS M5A99 EVO required some fabrication skill. Instructions included are poor

Older MB owners must read

Joshua M., Newegg
18 December 2013
  • Pros: Silent, keeps the processor cool, silent, keeps the processor cool, and did i say silent? Now I have to note that in my build it is a little louder than what it would be, but that is no fault of the cooler. The fault lies in my motherboard. If you have an older mother board, this cooler may give ...
  • Cons: None that i can find

  • Pros: Very, very quiet. Easy to install.
