Cooler Master's CPU cooler, the RR-VTPS-28PK-R in a low profile design, is a universal cooling solution for AMD and Intel processors in HTPC and slim-type chassis. The Vortex 752 has features normally reserved for more expensive coolers.

A pure copper base provides optimal thermal transference from the CPU and the surplus heat is transported via twin copper heat pipes to the aluminum cooling fins. A 92mm fan with multi-air inlet provides superior, silent 18 dBA cooling for the CPU and the surrounding components.

The mounting bracket is designed for allowing the RR-VTPS-28PK-R to easily attach to a wide variety of Intel LGA775 processors as well as AMD CPUs using the AM2/754/939/940 sockets.

  • newegg Superior Heat Dissipation and Cooling Performance The pure copper base, dual copper heatpipes and high-density aluminum fins maximize heat transfer and dissipation, plus a 92mm, 800-2200 RPM cooling fan providing a complete cooling solution for the CPU and its surrounding components. The multi-air inlet design provides huge airflow while the sickle-shape blade significantly reduces the noise for ultra-quiet operation.
  • newegg Universal Socket Compatibility The Cooler Master RR-VTPS-28PK-R features broad compatibility with AMD socket 754, 939, 940, and AM2 platforms, as well as the Intel LGA 775 platform.

5 out of 5 eggsquiet good

Pros: Works perfectly so far, very quiet (when compared to my case fans anyway) and it dropped the temps on my CPU from 50c idle to 40c and while gaming they don't get much higher than 60-65 sometimes 70 comparing that to the stock INTEL fan i had before it's a heck of an improvement.

Cons: The only con i would say is that it says it is LGA 1150 compatible and while it does work it definitely seems off, and it took a bit to get it to really hold on, the plastic pins didn't seem to want to hold so the quality for the mounts is not as up to par.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: I liked the previous models

Cons: I bought this because I thought this was the same as the model I bought 2 years ago, which I loved.
This was not the same. This has small plastic pins holding the heat sink to the motherboard, and that's it. As I attempted to fasten the heat sink, the plastic pin broke.
There were no extra's included, not that I want them after seeing the quality of the product.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I was looking for.

Pros: Low profile and low noise. Installation was simple on a stock AMD AM3 socket. Using just the provided locking bar, no removal of the motherboard from the case was needed.
Current temp range has been 44-50c and the fan has remained fairly quiet unlike the stock fan I replaced. (~2700rpm)

Cons: The base of the heatsink is not completely flat and filling in the gap between the rounded side edges of the heat pipes and the heatsink can take extra thermal compound. (Even if not strictly necessary)
Latching the lock bar down can be slightly fiddly, the lock mechanism is seperate from the bar itself and only stays on due to pressure when engaged. But once locked the connection is secure and has minimal 'play' to it which is comparable to the stock heatsink.

Other Thoughts: I used this to replace a stock heat sink for a Phenom X4 965, which was sounding like a jet engine at high temps. (No overclocking) Now it's down to roughly case fan levels of noise.
I used the entire tube of provided thermal paste, which was easier to work with than other more expensive compounds I've tried before. (Gelid, Antec Diamond, etc.) I used a plastic card to spread it to a thin layer similar to the thermal mats that come with the stock heat sinks to ensure complete coverage over the heatpipe gaps.
The heatsink orients with the pipes up/down due to the locking bar orientation through the base in my AMD system. You can use the lock notches to orient where the pipes will be in your system. (Thumb lock goes next to the bend of the heat pipes.)
I had to connect the fan power wire before installing as the overhang of the fins makes post install connection too difficult without removing the motherboard from my case. But the power cord was plenty long that this was not a problem during install.
I never removed the fan from the heatsink during the install process.
I recommend a dry fit before installing with paste.
The heatsink overhangs the closest DIMM sockets in my board, but there is enough room a low profile heatspreader on the memory should still fit, but tall ones simply will not.
I do not have a recent Intel system so I can't authoritively comment on install for those, but just looking at the provided hardware was a bit confusing with the instructions not showing obviously how the retainer was secured to the board. And I don't think the provided plastic posts would do the trick, as they looked more like support points.

1 out of 5 eggsJust skip over this one

Pros: Its Pretty

Cons: Designed for AM3, but it may not fit all AM3 boards.
it will also work in certain intel sockets, but you have to assemble the mount for it to fit.

Other Thoughts: Just spent 45 minutes attempting to fit this into an ASUS AM3 motherboard and failing. Save yourself some headache and just skip over this fan. You'll be glad you did.

4 out of 5 eggsCompact cooler

Pros: Cheap, compact, fits in the same foot print as stock cooler roughly, just taller than it.

Cons: None, wasn't able to use it yet.

Other Thoughts: Bought for a CM Elite 120 and found it was a tad too tall. I came across a forum that suggested this cooler for the CM Elite 120. The fan doesnt clear the PSU. I just wanted to make this review so people were aware of that. Otherwise it looks like it would be a great cooler.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: I used this on a really hot i7 original series in a 1366 socket. The installation was pretty easy. It kept it in the mid-40C range during medium use. All I needed was a replacement for a broken stock cooler but this performed better.

Cons: The way it secures to the board is nice because you don't have to take the board out but because of that, it's not nearly as sturdy as a setup with a metal back bracket behind the board. The mounting method is basically the same as an Intel stock cooler though so it's not terrible.

Also, I've gotten temperatures much closer to room temperature with 92 and 120mm tower style coolers with huge radiator blocks for about the same price. This cooler fits much better though and doesn't go beyond the bounds of the socket.

Other Thoughts: If you need a nicely performing cooler that doesn't float on top the RAM or touch the VRMs, I can't think of a better cooler. If you want exceptional cooling and have the space, I'd get a different one.

4 out of 5 eggsAs Expected

Pros: Much quieter than the stock 70mm cpu fan/heat sink. Keeps my AMD Phenom II X4 970 between 28c and 38c with max fan speed around 2900 rpm. Also the whole assembly fits nicely into my 4U server case.

Cons: The only complaint I can come up with is the AMD retention plate is a bit flimsy, but it seems to work fine.

Other Thoughts: Great CPU cooler for the money.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect Size

Pros: Small profile, plenty of room for RAM (G.Skill F3 8GB), easy to install - AMD A8-5600k, MSI FM2-A75MA. I did have the mobo outside of the case so I imagine it would have been a little more difficult inside.

Cons: Fan speed is constant no matter how hard cpu is pushed. This may not be the cooler's fault, maybe it's a problem with the mobo. Tried many smart fan control settings in BIOS but the fan always runs at the same speed from idle to benchmarking. HWMonitor showed high cpu temps - 89 degrees when running Cinebench and fans at 50%, 86 degrees with fans at 100%. Something is wrong but I don't know what so I took an egg off (maybe unfairly)

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for the xps 8500 i7 3770

Pros: Perfect fit, Easy Install, more capable fan than the stock Intel heatsink/fan. Max temp with stock on tomb raider reached 80 degrees. Max temp with the Vortex only reached 58 but only stayed a few seconds. Mostly hovered around the low 50's, very cool. This is highly recommended for the xps 8500 i7 3770.

Cons: No cons so far.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works but...

Pros: Fan is quit, easy to install with AMD CPU. Not as tall as other products. Fits well were vertical space is limited.

Cons: Surface that contacts CPU is not machined. It is an aluminum block with heat pipes pressed in. There are small gaps were the flat aluminum block and the round heat pipes meet.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Cooler Master and asked if this product was built correctly. There answer was yes, they are sorry for the misunderstanding. They are working on getting more accurate pictures for this product.
