Thought I was going to break my mother board...

Dylan, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Installing this into a AMD AM3 chip mb is a huge pain in the - - - impossible to do without completely disassembling and taking out your mother board. The directions tell you to put the screw/nut-bolt on in a way that just didn't quite connect on all 4 corners and the board was having to be...

Mounting is a nightmare

TEAMrecon, Amazon

  • Summary: Kept AMD 8320 nice & cool OC'd at 4.2GHz. However installation is a nightmare as the back bracket & the screw mounts have to be held in place as you screw in the Allen key screws which are actually too short.

Works as promised, Tough Installation

Stephen B., Newegg
3 April 2016
  • Summary: It is a good improvement over stock if you have your own tools already.
  • Pros: Fits well in the case. Reduces temp from stock solution by 10˚ C.
  • Cons: Installation is a problem. I ended up mangling my last motherboard following the instructions provided. The wrench they provide is terrible. I recommend getting another one, 2.5 mm is the closest size. Also why can't the securing screws be 1/16 of an inch longer? That would have saved me from cra...

Average

Ray Chang, Amazon
12 September 2015
  • Summary: I don't see any differences between a regular Cooler Master Hyper 212 and this one. Temperature is about the same. And this is more expensive. You are buying for design essentially. Assembly was somewhat painful. This cooler pretty tall.

Very difficult as an upgrade

Daniel K., Newegg
15 August 2015
  • Summary: I have installed other cpu fans before and they take less than 10 minutes. Between the awkward design, having to figure out how to use the backside bracket on my own, and then having to take it off and reinstall it because it was backward, this fan took well over an hour.
  • Pros: High airflow, keeps my i5 4690k at about 65C under full load. Looks cool.
  • Cons: Almost impossible to install if the motherboard is already inside the case. The screw holes are underneath the fan assembly, leading to extremely awkward angles for screwing if you can't use the Allen wrench horizontally because of space constraints. The installation requires approximately three ...

Bad first impression...

M. O., Newegg
23 January 2015
  • Summary: This is my first build and boy did I pick the wrong CPU cooler. It took quite a bit of force to get the way-too-short screws to reach just enough to secure this to my motherboard (ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0) on an AMD FX-8350 cpu.
  • Pros: Great looking, decent reviews, fits Corsair Vengeance C70 case
  • Cons: Ridiculously difficult to mount, missing screw, not the greatest instructions

NEEDED THE EXTRA COOLING

James M., Newegg
18 January 2015
  • Pros: I purchased this item because I had a similar item that I bought and tested on another machine......worked fine. kept the cpu running cooler during intensive use.
  • Cons: Most ridiculously over-engineering mounting I've ever seen. On the previous buy on a just slightly smaller unit I had no problem mounting (FM2 Socket) clipped down, no problem. On this one I literally had to disassemble the computer to remove the motherboard to mount.........AND THIS CASE was a F...
