Summary: Is quiet, looks cool and really keeps the CPU cold when playing games like BF4, city skylines or any other. WIth my stuck cooler the temperatures where reaching dangerous levels, like seriously dangerous i couldn't even play. With this now while playing it doesn't even pass 55c.
Summary: This was one of the best purchases for my case in a long while. Aside from a Noctua Fan which is in my other PC, this fan keeps my processor super cool and extremely quiet. I didn't like how the instructions were for the baseplate.
Summary: I liked this cooler so much I just bought another one - For my new computer X99 build -- I could use the old one in the rebuild - because it still is running great and it has been in the machine - A Home build asus intel i7 since 2010 - And this machine runs 24/7 -- So I think that is a pretty good...
Pros: Looks great - excellent design - Attaches easily to your CPU socket - and Holds up well - Keeps CPU much cooler then stock cooler --
Cons: little large so make sure your case can handle it
Summary: As noted, a steady 125 Watt input is no challenge for this cooler.
Pros: Used this with a 125W 6 thread AMD CPU. Running all engines full blast for hours during massive OCR and OneNote ingestion barely raised temperatures into the low-normal range. Temperatures rise a little then flatten out and stay flat - forever. Due to the thermal overkill the fan never runs very ...
Cons: Home theater might want something even quieter but at 125 Watt input it is barely noticeable in the office. Be aware you will need a wide enclosure for proper air flow around and through this thing.
Pros: Keeps CPU very cool, around 30 degrees Celsius. Directions for installation are very clear. Looks great and very quiet. Note that installation might take longer than a stock cooler but it is not that difficult. Just follow the instructions. Intel i5 4590 Antec 900 ATX case
Cons: Very large; may be too large for a side fan in some cases. I had to cut off part of the fan shroud in my Antec for it to fit properly.
Summary: It looks pretty awesome in my case and it is pretty quiet and keeps my CPU nice and cool. It is pretty big, but fits pretty well with my mid-towers. Make sure there is no fan on the side because it will make contact, unless you have a wide tower or something.
Summary: I have bought 3 of these in the past year. They aren't cheap but they do a fantastic job. These cool nearly the same as the nice Noctua air coolers (look up the Guru3D comparison charts or any other). I can't stand the ugly tan/brown fans Noctua uses so that's a no go for me.
Pros: Looks nice (subjective), does a great job at cooling. If nice aesthetics and great performance are what you're after, this unit fits the bill.
Cons: Installation is a pain, but worth it. Unit is pretty large - ensure your case can accommodate it.
Summary: This is a Very, Very Cool looking Cooler. Sluggo
Pros: I bought mine over 4 years ago on Newegg. It has kept my Sandy Bridge i7 remarkably cool. I normally run my CPU at 4.1 Gig. What ever I throw at it, it handles. My CPU temperature, when running Prime 95, is remarkably low. The fan will ramp up a little, (still a very quiet cooler) and temps level...
Cons: The Fins are sharp and it is a bit harder to install than most coolers. And I really do mean SHARP, I drew blood a few times. (But as others have said.. Battle Scars are worth it.. I get them installing Headers on my cars and heat sinks on my computers.. WELL worth the small injuries).
Summary: This CPU cooler is amazing! I had a Cooler Master V10 but the central fan went out in it. After looking at several different CPU cooler choices this one kept rising to the top. I've never liked the design or look of this cooler but you can't argue with the reviews and praise it receives (all well...
