Beware the Monster!

Overclockers
4 September 2013
  • Summary: This thing is huge, you have no idea. I recommend checking out the dimensions in the specifications and making a mini paper replica just to get an idea of the space your going to need. You'll definitely need low profile ram if your using more than 2 slots as the edge of the cooler fully covers 2 of my 4 ram slots.

Nice bit of kit, beware of size

  • Summary: Pretty straightforward to fit, but I have got low profile RAM so take that into account when considering, it is massive. Looks great, but most importantly it dropped might idle temps from low 30s to low 20s and got me running Prime 95 at high 60s with a 4.4 overclock on my i5 3570.

A massive cooler that gives instant results.

  • Summary: Highly recommended. Just be prepared for a difficult install.
  • Pros: Running an i7 3770k instantly lowered my average temperature from 70 to 35.
  • Cons: -Absolutely massive, but the results are worth it. -Very difficult install of final 2 screws. Patience required! -Had to remove heat spreaders from 8GB Patriot RAM for install.

HUGE

Jonathan, Overclockers

  • Summary: Fantastic cooler, runs very quietly and keeps the CPU nice and cool (not to mention it looks amazing) My last cooler was a Zalman (CNPS9700) and it was still going strong after I replaced it with this one 5 years later. But BEWARE! theCNPS12X is a massive cooler so make sure you have a big case.. . I can also confirm that it will conflict with ram with any kind of tall heatsink (in my case it was Avexir ram in a Gigabyte UD3 motherboard.
