Not so bad I suppose....

Szczepan I., Newegg
31 January 2015
  • Summary: Over all design is not bad. Over all you get what you pay for and it's border line worth the money. Maybe I just got a faulty one.... not time to exchange at the moment.
  • Pros: The bracket it self is made from good material. At least at idle the fan is very silent.
  • Cons: However, the cpu bracket screws are too short. I needed to use thread lock to keep them in place, before one kept coming out.The fan barring design is some what cheat, not as silent as I hoped, lots of visible vibration. The fan controller is useless. Make sure MB has 3 pin cpu fan connector, if ...

Ok but don't waste your money on it

Ronald R., Newegg
31 January 2015
  • Summary: For the money I could have gotten a nice all in one water cooling system. Or possibly 20 more and gotten a 120m at the time. I still may but going to let this go for awhile as it does look good in the case.. and the water coolers.. not so much. Unless you are wanting one for the looks..
  • Pros: It looks good in the case and it does a good job of keeping my FX-9590 cool
  • Cons: Loud. I dont know where they got 35 db on that fan but im showing 55 at 80-100% rpm from 3 feet away from my case closed. Also its a lot bigger than I thought. which is kinda a Pro too.. and it does look good in the case.

  • Pros: Cool looking.
  • Cons: After using this cooler for a while, the fan started to make significant noises. The dust inside the cooling element metal is hard to clean and you may cut yourself during installation or cleaning.

Average

Breno S., Newegg
5 April 2011
  • Summary: I am very dissapointed, more than 1 year using it knowing that I had to change as soon as possible.
  • Pros: Nice looking, green light
  • Cons: Did not perform as I expected, phenom II 965b stock 140w full load 70c+, that is not acceptable when amd maximum recommended temperature for this cpu is 62c. this is with run temp of 21c, in the summer I cant even play any games. I also used artic silver 5. It is also very noisy even on half 35%.

Needs improvement

Sally B., Newegg
22 February 2011
  • Summary: Maybe it is just mine but I could tell immediately that there was going to be a problem. The fan does not spin without hitting the grille. Which sucks because for the price I would have hoped that it was better designed than that.
  • Pros: Cools really well, fairly easy to install for AM3 socket, size isn't too bad if you have a large mid-tower case or a full case. It does fit an AM3 Socket.
  • Cons: The heatsink grill needs work, a bit of a high pitch whine when idle at 39 C

Too Loud

Shane H., Newegg
6 July 2010
  • Summary: I would go with a diffrent model if I was to do it over. I love the cooling, but I am finding the noice very distracting. If you have an xbox360, know that its silent compared to this cooler.
  • Pros: Cools very well, will fit on AM3 board, wasn't totally sure it would. It did drop the temp of my overclocked 955 by about 10c. Very good cooling. Been overclocking to 3.8 and the temp is yet to go up to 50c.
  • Cons: Way too Loud! I have a large case with 2 250mm fans, and one 120mm fan. I'm also running dual 5770's. All I can here is the ULTRA QUIET CPU fan.

  • Excerpt: Взял на свой i5 2500K (в паре с креплением Zalman ZM-CS5B). Вентилятор ощутимо шумит на любых штатных оборотах, конечно если у вас в остальном ПК не шумный. Так как реобаса у меня нету, пришлось уменьшать обороты своими силами. Подключил куллер к питанию силой в 7 ват, теперь практически не слышно.
  • Pros: Хорошо охлаждает, интересный дизайн, "NVidia", зеленая подсветка, сравнительно небольшой.
  • Cons: Шумный.

  • Excerpt: Не советую покупать(если нужна тишина?) Поменял на zalman CNPS10X PERFORMA небо и земля, стоит дешевле и тихий.
  • Pros: Хорошо справляется со своей задачей
  • Cons: Очень шумный,всё время трещит, как будто цепляет лопастями за радиатор (за такую цену!?)
