  • Summary: The looseness really bugs me and the size is troublesome. Installation was somewhat difficult, though as I haven't done a build since LGA775 that may be common to 1155. Temperatures seem great, on an i5-3570K at 4.2GHz I get 30-35C idle and 60-65C load with MX-4 paste; keep in mind Ivy runs hot, and I don't know how well other coolers do--this is the only one I've actually owned for this CPU.
  • Pros: Great temperatures, looks awesome.
  • Cons: I have an i5-3570k and this thing is LOOSE on the CPU, i.e. when installing it just a tiny bit of force and you could rotate it clockwise/counterclockwise. Now that the system's been running for a while it's a bit more secure but still far looser than I care for. And yes, I did mount it properly and tighten it all the way! Now that I have it I googled this specific problem and it does seem like others have had the exact same issue. Temperatures seem fine but I'm still...

Classe mais pas assez performant

  • Summary: Super classe visuellement, mais ne permet pas de mettre de la mémoire avec dissipateur fantaisiste. Ne fait pas de bruit. Cependant pour le prix, les capacités de refroidissement sont insuffisantes, il est d'ailleurs assez souvent mal noté par rapport aux autres ventirads de sa catégorie de prix. C'est pour ça que je l'échange pour un noctua d14 SE 2011, plus adapté à un 3930k OC.
