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.

3 out of 5 eggsOk cooler

Pros: Quiet. Not much problem while installing it, just make sure that you push in a straight vertical manner so as to secure the plastic "things". Personally I like this type of mounting since it's used in an HTP : no need for a backplate, and at its size (for a 92mm fan), it won't exercise that much stress on the mobo.

Cons: The CPU temperature is between 40C and 45 C. at Idle... I haven't tried under gaming/full load yet, but that number makes me fear that I will have to pay close attention... Note that it's used in a Mini-ITX case (Lian Li PC-Q30). Maybe that I should've boufgt an i5-4690S version instead of the i5-4690 ("S" means less TDP/power consumption)...

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive cooling

Pros: Fan is QUIET, temperatures dropped dramatically(idle went from 45 to 50C to 30-32C, and load temos from around 79C all the way to 45C!). Other than the tight fit, I am very pleased with this CPU cooler!

Cons: Not really a con, but I had to remove one of my top exhaust fans because of the tight fit.

Other Thoughts: As with almost any aftermarket, measure your case twice, order once.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Heat Sink For A FM2

Pros: This is a great heat sink love it. I got this for my AMD A6 and it keeps it at around 30 - 35 c. Now i know it says it dosnt support FM2 but i looked up in AMD and Under Cooler Master and FM2 and FM1 use the same heat sink layout as a AM2 and AM3 heat sink just the pin layout is differnt but i love it cause the stock was a joke. Just used my arctic sliver 5 to keep it cooler that stuff dose magic.

Cons: A little confusing to put together but used a you tube video to fix that

5 out of 5 eggsGood fan and heatsink

Pros: Good unit, keeps the quad-core AMD Phenom in the 30C range. Cools the surrounding MB components and memory bars cool as well in my modified HP a6720f. The large fan runs quiet with plenty of air flow.

Cons: It would be nice if the pressure bar worked in both slots for either AMD or Intel configurations. It fit, but I would have rather turned the unit 90 degrees to suit my tastes.

3 out of 5 eggsNeutral

Pros: Looks good and I like the footprint design. It's high and away from ram, caps, etc. I wish I could hear it run!

Newegg's free delivery was surprisingly speedy and top notch. I ordered Wednesday and got it by Friday.

My neutral title concerns the cheap mounts and slooow, though very cordial, tech support.

Cons: My system has not been running, all waiting on a broken mount.

One of the plastic mounts I had to use for my socket style (1366) failed as I was tightening the mounting bracket. These are very cheap plastic. I later read a review from someone with similar concerns. He wrote the plastic should be softer and include more than the bare minimum of 4. I would suggest nylon or other harder plastic should be used but also include more than a measly 4. Regardless, they're cheap and they break.

Tech support has been working at a turtles pace to get me the tiny cheap plastic mount in an envelope and in the mail. They are either super bogged down by support requests or very short staffed.

Other Thoughts: The upside of T/S is that they are very courteous in their responses and I like the cm fanzone site.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: This was one of the easiest Intel (1150) heatsink installs I have had. Instructions were clear and didn't take long to complete.

Cons: A little taller than I was expecting for my HTPC build. I couldn't install my blu ray burner as it was running into heatsink. My fault for not checking the sizing.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesom Cooling For A8-5500

Pros: Very easy mounting on my FM2+ micro ATX board. No need to remove motherboard on AMD build. Amd APU's tend to run hot. around 48c. After installing the Vortex Plus, temps dropped to 36c. I only trust bios readings, and after installation I verified these temps. Nice to know I have more overhead when ambient temps rise due to heat in the room, and when gaming.

Cons: None,works great.

Other Thoughts: Bye the way, this fan cleared my GSkill Snipers Remember that the spring fan mounts exceed the fan spec dimensions. If you have very high heat sinks, you might lose the first slot. Of course there is always modding, but that might void your warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Satisfied

Pros: This aftermarket fan, heatsink and thermal paste are all working and keeping my Intel Core i7 920 at the low temperature levels I wanted.
The fan noise is nothing but a whisper/white noise; very happy with that turn out as well.
Instructions were clear and all parts and supplies were good quality.

Cons: Although the instructions where very clear and easy to understand but the only thing I wish was recommended was that they would have instructed me to remove my motherboard (socket 1366 LGA) before hand. As it was way easier to install the plastic push pins. Otherwise I probably would of ran into the broken pins as people have seemed to be having here because I was trying to get them in without removing the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Very satisfied with this purchase and again I'm glad I didn't run into broken push pins.
I found position 1 (as shown in the instructions) for the heatsink the best for my Studio XPS 435t/9000, as it wouldn't run into the motherboards fuses or ram, its a little close to the power box but nothing to bring up concern.

Dell Studio XPS 435t/9000
Intel Core i7 920
Socket 1366 LGA (Socket B)

2 out of 5 eggsGood for only a single mounting

Pros: Looks really nice, four copper heatpipes. Provides Good clearance on my MOBO. Makes very good contact with the CPU.

Cons: First of all, this was probably a bad choice on my part. I should have gone for a heftier cooler for a first generation I7 CPU. So other than the problems I had with mounting parts, take this into consideration when I review the performance.

Mounting plastic ware is brittle hard plastic and not forgiving for do-overs.
When I first settled on a mounting configuration, I realized the heatpipes were too close to a row of capacitors and would prematurely age them due to the heat generated.
Thus I decided to reverse the mounting direction. I was very gentle and slow removing the plastic fasteners, but two of them broke anyway. No spares are provided so I could not continue with installation.
They should be using softer plastic as was the case with other CM CPU coolers I have purchased. They will at least provide a few re-insertions.
Had to modify a few Intel stock cooler pegs to get the mounting hardware sturdy so I could install the cooler.

So far, my I7 Bloomfield cores are running at 50C idle with no overclocking. Quickly approaches 78C when running Passmark CPU Performace Test. The Intel Stock Cooler performed better than this.

For the first time I used the CM provided Heatsink grease having used Artic Silver on all other builds. I will redo this using AS and see where the temp results go. However, I don't expect more than a 5 degree improvement at best.

I should have stuck with the Hyper 212 Plus as I have had good luck with them. This is not nearly as hefty, but to get results below a stock cooler is unacceptable.
This would probably be sufficient for AMD CPU.

3 out of 5 eggsFunctional

Pros: Cooling quite well and is still somewhat quieter than the stock fan for my Phenom 1090t.

Cons: Wow, what a time I had getting it installed on a Micro ATX. I'm glad I have it in now but I'm never buying this model again.
