Works well, a huge, borderline intolerable pain to install

Shari Youngblood, Amazon
23 September 2014
  • Summary: The good: it works very well. Cools my CPU (AMD Phenom II 955) very well, never goes above 50C even with all 4 cores under full load and you can't really hear it (compared to the other 3 fans on my case). No problem there. The bad (and that's why it only gets 3 stars): other people are not joking when they say installation is awful.

  • Summary: this is a heat pipe fan based cooler. so in theory it should work very well. In the past I have installed these on am3 and intel 1155 boards without issue or incident. However I have a board from 2009 an 1156 intel board and the clips just would not secure to the board. In the end I gave up returned it and went with a water cooling option. normally I would give 5 stars im deducting 1 because I had trouble.

  • Summary: replaced my TT MeOrb on my home server mobo. This one is much bigger but audible. The noise is the only aspect that I would change. I was able to install it without difficulty.

Glows

LesB "Les Borean", Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: My computer is housed in a case with a plastic window on the side, and this looks very cool, sort of science-fiction-ish. Cool also is my CPU. I don't really overclock so this provides very ample cooling for me while making my system look like something from Star Trek.

Large, but works beautifully

Son of Thor, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: It is big but it does fit into a my micro ATX case. It is actually fairly quiet when you use the extra resistor they give you to slow the fan down slightly. Even with that installed it keeps my computer nice and cool- which I never turn off. It was inexpensive, it's quiet, it does the job it was designed for very well. No complaints at all here.

Huge Cooler, Excellent Performance, Tricky Addembly

Edward Rupe, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a HUGE cooler--but no problems with it fitting in an Antec 900 Mid Tower Case. it does require swapping out the back plate on the Motherboard. I recommend recruiting some help to hold the cooler in place when you are attaching it to the CPU--I managed on my own, but would have very much liked to have had an extra set of hands.

Pain to install for AMD processor

DVuk, Amazon
15 March 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Beautifully constructed, all copper heatsink. Keeps the FX-8350 running nice and cool. Cons: I bought this fan to replace a stock fan that came with my AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 4.0GHz. Piece of advice, if you don't have a spare set of hands, there is no way you gonna install the fan by you're self, without breaking something. User guide says that the fan comes with three sets of screws, it came only with two sets.

Keeps it cool, but a pain to install

Jayce A. Brinkman, Amazon
5 March 2014
  • Summary: This heat sync works great and is fairly quiet, but installation is quite frustrating. My motherboard is literally flexing just to get the small screws they provide to thread in enough to maintain contact with the cpu. Pros: -High performance *Keeps my AMD FX-9370 around 80-110 degrees when under heavy load -Blue led fan -Compatible with AMD or Intel processors. -This came with high performance thermal paste.
