User Review

Eric L., Newegg
9 August 2014
  • Summary: If the clearance at the edges had been higher there'd be no issues with the ram (except for really tall chips). Even just bringing in the size a couple millimeters would have solved the biggest con.
  • Pros: Well made, durable, good size, extra parts included
  • Cons: The fan spreads out too far too low, taking up space within the adjoining ram slots. Inserting the ram first lets you use the ram slots, but the heatsink will make contact with the ram chip - which is not desirable in the least.

Sharp Cooler

Melania S., Newegg
18 April 2014
  • Summary: Cools better than stock, but not as good as I hoped. Might be me since i didnt use Artic and used the cheap thermal grease they gave me. Currently overclocking 3.2 vishera at 4.0. 115 F temp.
  • Pros: Easy install, Pretty to look at.
  • Cons: Fins are sharp, not as quiet as I hoped. Small fan hum.

Best solution for socket AM3

Adam C., Newegg
29 August 2013
  • Summary: I don't review many products on here but I just wanted to say this is absolutely the best cooler I've ever purchased. I needed to replace my worn out aftermarket HSF on my AMD FX rig which has poor airflow to begin with.
  • Pros: Quality, quiet, easy to install
  • Cons: None

Fits well, Copper is great, Fan is LOUD at full RPM

Daniel L., Newegg
2 May 2013
  • Summary: Despite a few cons, I'm happy with the price and overall quality of this unit. Without the fan-mate RPM controller, however, I'd be returning this unit for being too noisy.
  • Pros: You can't beat copper for conducting heat. This medium sized copper heatsink and fan has a somewhat compact design (without being "too small" IMO) that should fit into your case without a lot of hassles. Fan-Mate RPM controller is a lifesaver for noise issues.. see "Cons" below...
  • Cons: Fan is NOISY at full RPM. It sounds a bit like a wood chipper. Within 2 hours, I installed the fan-mate controller and turned the RPMs almost all the way down. The included thermal grease is a joke. It's zinc oxide, (the stuff you use on your nose at the beach to prevent sunburn) and mine was "wa...

  • Pros: man, I try other heatsinks, and there's just nothing that has consistently worked as well for me. this one fits nicely in a micro atx case, is quiet with the fan turned down, and has a nice led
  • Cons: i don't really like the led, maybe i'll get rid of it?

Big Cooler

Ashley C., Newegg
11 April 2013
  • Pros: Cooler seems to be doing a decent job. Idle temps are around 30-35 Celcius. I haven't OC'd yet.
  • Cons: One major con with this cooler is it's size. I installed this on a AsRock Z77 Extreme4 and it extends into the first Ram slot. I had future plans to install 4x4GB chips but that's not going to happen now.

Stylish and efficient, but has some problems.

Howard B., Newegg
30 November 2012
  • Pros: The heat sink performs great and it looks really cool in the case.
  • Cons: After about a year the fan of the heat sink slowly started to die, the bearing went off kilter and the fan blades started to clip the inside edge of the copper sink fins making an awful noise... Eventually I got sick of it and bought a new 100mm fan and replaced it with some engineering skills. I...

Good but bulky

Sarah B., Newegg
21 November 2012
  • Summary: I really liked this fan on my older socket 775 mobo but on this smaller mobo, it's too bulky. Good quality though and I wish I could keep it.
  • Pros: Good quality, quiet and keeps my system cool.
  • Cons: I moved this fan from an old system to a new one and it completely blocks multiple RAM slots.
