Great but....

  • Summary: Installation was easy for me. I used the AMD clip and placed the fan on per the instructions. No issues here. My full sized case fits it in without having to leave the skin off. I hope this helps. Cheers!
  • Pros: Keeps my 8150 FX cool. When Prime95 was running the temp was hovering at 67c. (I used artic silver)
  • Cons: It's huge....it is rediculously huge! My gigabyte AM3+ MB, I had to remove memory modules in order to make it fit. So I went from 16GB to 8GB memory. I will work on this later. Also, I am not removing an egg for this because it works VERY well.

Great Cooler!

Chester K., Newegg
6 January 2012
  • Summary: Q6600 @ 3.2ghz XFX 680i LT SLI 4x2GB Patriot Viper DDR2 800 Nvidia GTX 460 Corsair 750W PSU
  • Pros: Great Cooler, cools my Q6600 nicely. I have it overclocked to 3.2Ghz and it keeps it under 40C idle, 50C on load for over 3 years. Easy to set up and quiet operation.
  • Cons: The push pins mounting isn't my favorite, it works but I would rather have a mounted bracket be included. I bought one instead out of preference.

  • Summary: Comes with a few extra bits to mount depending on what socket you are using. Don't worry if you have some parts left over. Worth the money.
  • Pros: Far more quiet than stock heatsink & fan. Far cooler than stock heatsink & fan. Fits nicely on my GA-880GA-UD3H. Fits nicely in my Antec P180.
  • Cons: Instructions useless. Plenty of videos out there detailing instillation.

  • Summary: This does its job and does it well. Transporting the computer may be a bit tricky given the size of the unit and how it is attached using AMD's stock mounting system. If you don't move the PC much, it should be fine, but if you transport it, double check to make sure it is still secure before...
  • Pros: Cools very well and is very quiet. My AMD FX-8150 now idles in the upper 30's/low 40's, with load, in the low to mid 50's under Prime95. This is a major improvement over the stock fans in terms of sound and heat. If you use an AMD motherboard and have a case with fans on the top, you can get even...
  • Cons: Most of the cons are small things that don't impact the overall rating. On AMD systems, the standard retention clip remains, but it isn't secure. This can make placing the unit a bit hit or miss as you would want it centered. The included silicone thermal compound shouldn't be used with copper, u...

Awesome CPU Cooler

Joseph L., Newegg
16 September 2011
  • Summary: Worth it if you want to overclock or if you have issues with your CPU temps...
  • Pros: Dropped temps of my Q9550 @ 2.83GHz under P95 load from 73C to 49C. I was then able to overclock my Q9550 @ 3.8GHz (447*8.5 1.3625V in BIOS) under P95 load with max core temp of 67C.
  • Cons: It came with only one (1) fan. Can be difficult to install to motherboard with fan already attached to heatsink and motherboard already installed into a case... luckily I have thin fingers so I was able to install relatively easily. Price? I got it for $20 (used).

Great Cooler!

Edmund C., Newegg
18 August 2011
  • Summary: Fit my Cooler Master Ammo case fairly well, although it is about a few mm till it hits the power supply. Cleared the Northbridge heat sink on my Gigabyte X38-DS4. For those not knowing the way the fan blows and how it should be oriented, there's some plastic arrows on the side of the fan showing the...
  • Pros: - Quiet - Great Performance. It improved temps by almost 10 deg C on the same overclocked settings. I have my Q9550 running at 3.6Ghz on stock voltage - Finish on the bottom was decent. Not a mirror finish but good enough.
  • Cons: - Installation instructions didn't cover everything. Better to just search how on the web. - Installation with push pins was bleh. Get the bracket and remove the motherboard, save some headache. - The product box seemed badly dented in the corner. Luckily there was tons of foams to protect the fa...

Great cooling monolyth!

Alex C., Newegg
9 August 2011
  • Summary: If you are prepared to hack trought the installation of this monster, you will be satisfied.
  • Pros: - Huge cooling power. - Silent - Price
  • Cons: -Tricky to install. I greatly recommend taking your motherboard out of the case for installation. Little anti-noise rubber are a pain to fit into the heat-sink. -Big. I mean, really big, check the dimension before buying.

Price...Good for the Performance

Jeffrey T., Newegg
7 August 2011
  • Summary: It's pretty cool that your able to use this one cooler for sockets for both AMD an Intel.
  • Pros: It's works like a champ. You'd spend twice as much and not get any better cooling.
  • Cons: Tall as heck but that's not a con for all you eggheads out there who've done your planning and homework.
