3 out of 5 eggsGreat at cooling, looks nice, horrible to install

Pros: Looks great, red LED's go with red LED's in my case.
Cools great, idle temps are around 35C, 55C under 100% load.

Cons: Alright. I may be a little harsh for knocking off two eggs, but here we go.

You need to assemble the bracket, a hassle, but I expected as much.
The plate that runs under the heatsink and is responsible for securing the heatsink is an absolute PAIN IN THE REAR.
Be *VERY* careful and I recommend having a second pair of hands to hold the heaksink steady or you'll have a hinksink sliding around and you'll lose position of screw holes.

Also, the way the fan mounts to the heat sink is absolutely a one time deal. Once the fan is attached to the heatsink, taking it off risks breaking the rubber holders that keep the fan in place.

Other Thoughts: Instead of two little nubs that fit into the heatsink to secure it, why not pin holes with pins so it doesn't pop out of place when mounting it. That would save time.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for gaming

Pros: I will start off by saying this is my first time building a computer but I did a ton of research before I did. I have to say that this is a spectacular fan. The fan is very quiet and I can keep the fan running at medium speed and it still cools my cpu down to 29°c. Very worth it.
The fan is detachable meaning if you get the right size fan you want,one with a different LED or better quality than you should be able to mount it . I haven't tried it but it is there.

Cons: It is big, not really a con considering that with how big it is it does its job so up to opinion I guess. Make sure you have the room because sometimes I would have to remove the fan so I can put a new stick of ram in so just make sure first. Another con is that if you turn the fan a certain way, you can hear a noise that is pretty obnoxious so I just changed the position and everything worked out.

Other Thoughts: Consider buying this, not many reviews on here but just from the one I have, I will probably buy it again if I build another computer.

5 out of 5 eggsPROVEN: The Hardware Secrets Review

Pros: I became a computer-cooling obsessive sometime around 2004. Once you latch onto a priority like this, it will make your wallet leak more change. Back in 2011, I was building my Sandy Bridge system. N****a D14 was the talk of the town. Indeed -- a very good cooler. But the reality falls short of the myth that it is the best.

All of these coolers have a measurable effective thermal resistance. The lower the thermal resistance, the more effective the cooler, the more of a temperature reduction you can expect compared to the stock CPU cooler.

Hardware Secrets had posted a review of this EVGA ACX cooler not long after it was released, and three months or so after I settled into D14 wonderfulness. At that time, it was called the EVGA Superclock cooler. They reissued the same cooler of identical design, and renamed it the "ACX." Hardware Secrets produced results showing the ACX had 6C lower temperatures on the same thermal load platform.

Since I build ducts for my air-coolers which can result in a temperature drop of 5C, I chose to test this ACX cooler with one of my ducts, the same basic fans, same cases, same motherboard and processor, etc. Both test systems were ducted. It was D14 versus ACX. I controlled the peak "Package Power" reported by HWMonitor on both systems through overclocking so that the reported wattage was the same. Indeed, the ducted comparison is close to the review results: ACX was better by 4.75C.

Cons: They could improve the mounting hardware. It works "OK," but I'd like to see spring-loaded screws for the cooler-base hold-down bracket. The black-vinyl nuts used to secure the screws from the bottom of the board may have stripped threads after a couple disassemblies and remountings. But that doesn't matter, since they are essentially big, thick washers -- nothing more.

Other Thoughts: With Haswell, we're searching for cooling that is better than traditional heatpipes. At this point in the game, an AiO cooler might serve better for any mild but serious Haswell overclocking. We have now proven how to get the best out of a single-fan AiO: the same approach I use with my heatpipe coolers. With thermal power of 140W, my LinX and IntelBurnTest temperatures average in the mid-60's C. This is quite astounding. It beats many AiO's installed without attention to any improvements (fans, ducts, etc.)

It is also odd for EVGA. They are not a heatpipe cooler specialist company. The cooler seems to have style and design first and foremost, with blingy curves in its shape and a red LED pusher fan. That makes this even more astounding. Darn good cooler for heatpipes!!

3 out of 5 eggsGood, not great

Pros: Attractive glossy black finish. EVGA logo is present, but not overstated. Seems an effective cooler, once installed.

Cons: The fan covers the CPU mounting screws, so you have to slide the fan into place after mounting the unit. I say slide, but it's really hard to get the rubber isolators to move smoothly down the slots provided in the cooling fin stack. They snag and roll and stick. The shape of the isolators is strange and difficult to describe. I doubt I'll find replacements elsewhere if I break one. No spares were provided. In the product images on this page you can make out something of the isolator shape in one of the photos. Notice that it's not fully inserted either. Once in place, they work fine, but getting them in and out is a hassle.

Other Thoughts: Some of the black has chipped away (or was never there) on mine and the chrome-like metal below shines through. Just a small bit, but I see it. Also, I don't care for the clear-plastic fan. I think this unit would look better with black or dark smoke translucent. I don't mind the red LEDs, just that the clear shell looks cheesy.

4 out of 5 eggs80% there

Pros: +Great temps (20-30 idle, up to 50 under load)

+Looks fantastic

+Fits inside my NZXT CA-S340W-B1 mid-tower (see other thoughts below)

+Simple install

Cons: +I love EVGA and everything they do, but I think I got one that's slightly off. Even when my fan profile is turned to quiet, I'm hearing an odd hum/whine when the fan adjusts speed about every 30 seconds. When it's at its lowest RPM, it sounds fine, but any increase comes and the noise comes.

If it weren't there, it would be awesomely quiet, but with it, its about as loud as my stock 4690 cooler. I'll probably have to move my case further away.

Other Thoughts: This fit in my case, but baaaarely. The top of the heatsink is literally a hair from the sidepanel of my midtower, but it looks great that way.

My NZXT case is 7.87" wide. If yours is less, don't try it.

5 out of 5 eggsReally good cooler

Pros: It is one of the best coolers I've had the chance to deal with, it's not as big as a nh-d14, it's black.

It really is a very high quality product. Keeps my 2500k at 29c with the fan running at 768 rpm and its actually 27c in the room.

at 50$, don't look somewhere else, its the best bang for your buck

Cons: red led, might not be for everyone
