11 December 2015
  • Summary: Build: - ASUS X99-DELUXE USB 3.1 Mainboard - Intel Core i7-5930K 6-core Processor - ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B CPU Cooler - EVGA SuperNOVA 220-P2-0750-X1 750W Fully-Modular Power Supply - (2x) EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2978-KR FTW Edition
  • Pros: - Keeps Intel Core i7-5930K at very low temperatures (37-53 C). - Cools rapidly after changing from heavy to idle activity. - LEDs are bright but not annoyingly bright. - Very easy to install, no backplate required for the i7-5930K.
  • Cons: - Fan feels flimsy. It feels like it will snap off.

Works perfectly-pain to install

Nelson V., Newegg
29 November 2015
  • Summary: While the install is not for everyone it is not beyond the reach of normal tinkerers. I new the problems going in but could not find any other fan/heat sync that would address the heat issue I had to deal with without going the liquid cool way, another install/upgrade that would require time,...
  • Pros: This heat-sink/fan works perfectly, my AMD FX-8330 125W CPU is running much cooler then before. With the standard fan the heat escalated to 150 F, with this fan the temp never pass 110 F while gaming. Great improvement.
  • Cons: On the negative side is the installation of this Fan assembly. It is always a royal pain to remove a motherboard to install a fan as it could lead to some damage if your not careful. The screws used are hex and while they did provide a wrench it was not long enough to secure the fan while going a...

Customer Service Saves The Day..

Stephen C., Newegg
30 October 2015
  • Summary: For cooling this is the bomb. The red led business of the fan is subtle. It's actually quite small for 220watt cooling. The Cooler Master V8 GTS (I love by the way) is a monster compared side by side with it. The 'be quiet! DARK ROCK TF' may be my favorite 220w cooler though.
  • Pros: Installing for an AMD socket board may be the worst I've experienced (the installation manual is even worst?) but with help from customer service and some parts, I'm up and running. Keeps a AMD FX-9590 Vishera 4.7GHz Socket AM3+ 220W 8-Core CPU running at about 31C in the Zalman H1 case.
  • Cons: As mentioned, the AMD installation is tough. The manual leaves a lot to be desired. Intel may be a dream though.

  • Pros: Great looking fan, works well. Looks cool with the Cougar Blue Led fans I installed with it.
  • Cons: None so far.

  • Summary: Great cooler, quiet, and affordable. I would buy it again!
  • Pros: Cools efficiently and is aesthetically pleasing. I am still 100% happy!!
  • Cons: Only thing I had trouble with was mounting this to my mother board. It took a little "motivation" but overall I can't complain to much.

Amazing cooler

Richard H., Newegg
9 August 2015
  • Summary: I'm running this in a haf932. The entire system is under 10dB at full load.
  • Pros: It's been keeping my proc cool 24/7 for the last 4 years. Whisper quite under full load.
  • Cons: It's big, make sure it fits your case. The fins are extremely sharp which makes installation kind of difficult.
