great value

  • Summary: - People that are complaining about noise. Inspect your cooler very carefully when you recieve it for shipping damage. And inspect it again after installation for installer damage. I have no doubt that 100% of these complaints are user error.
  • Pros: -Quietest CPU cooler I've ever used. Even under load. -Cools about 15 degrees better than stock at Idle, and up to 30 under load. -very high quality piece. the pictures are a little deceptive. - lots of overhead clearance. should fit in nearly any case.
  • Cons: Just make sure you have room for that Ram if you have a 2 chip M-atx or Itx board.

Do not buy from Action Packaged Inc

Cord P., Newegg
6 May 2015
  • Summary: Never buy from Action Packaged Inc - 2+ weeks to receive your item. - Good Chance it's the wrong item -False Advertising
  • Pros: Box was un damanged
  • Cons: Be careful do not order from Action Packaged Inc. This listing is advertising the CNPS 8900 Extreme they will send you the CNPS 8900 Quiet. I am very upset that they sent me the wrong item. This was no mistake either the Extreme version is hard to find right now. You can find the CNPS8900 Quiet f...

Great value

19 December 2014
  • Pros: -Great performance and very quiet (not silent). -My CPU run 5 or 10 C cooler with this than with the coolermaster 212 evo it replaced. I cannot explain this... but its awesome. -Great value -low profile -great build quality and looks... lovely
  • Cons: Minimum fan speed is too high (~1000 RPM) and makes an unpleasant tone at this speed. This heatsink performs so shockingly well the fan should run much slower or just shut off for low loads. May interfere with tall memory heatsinks on ITX motherboards. I had to cut the tips off of one of my memor...

Mine is noisy.

Roberto d., Newegg
15 December 2014
  • Summary: Had already submitted rebate before building the system. After rebate it would cost almost as much to ship it back for RMA as it would to just buy a new one. May just spend a little more and try the Cooler Master Seidon 120
  • Pros: Cools CPU Slim design, fits in Cooler Master Elite 130 Mini-ITX Case Inexpensive
  • Cons: I had the same problem as Robert L below. When I first booted the computer I heard a extremely loud rattle. I thought a cable was in the way of the fan so I quickly shut down the CPU and took a look. Nothing there, booted again, same noise. I pushed down on the fan thinking maybe it was loose and...

Very noisy but cools well

Robert L., Newegg
21 November 2014
  • Pros: It cools pretty well, I haven't seen many cooling issues. The included thermal grease is pretty good
  • Cons: The thing makes a TON of noise! it rattles whenever it spins. I had to turn the RPM REALLY low to stop the rattling, but it still does rattle on occasion. The fan also covers one of my ram ports, which is a huge negative. Installing the little plastics clips on the bracket was very hard.

HTPC champ

Matthew H., Newegg

  • Summary: I selected this cooler based on a motherboard which I eventually discovered wasn't a good choice for my case. When I changed my motherboard selection I forgot to make sure this cooler would be compatible with that one as well. I now know that a GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XN-WIFI is NOT compatible with this.
  • Pros: -Very quiet operation. Not totally silent but unless you're going fanless it doesn't get much better than this from my experience. -Seems to cool effectively. I'm using this with a 65W AMD A10-7800 so this cooler is clearly overkill and I haven't had any need to monitor temps at all. I wanted som...
  • Cons: -The U-shaped brackets which come with the cooler require it to be installed so that the heat pipes stick out in fixed directions. This can cause compatibility issues with certain motherboards/RAM. If additional brackets were packaged to allow the heatsink to be rotated 90 degrees it would open u...
