4 out of 5 eggsLows temps on a budget

Pros: This cooler rivals anything I haved used in the past. It's unique in the fact that the fan sits at the core of the cooler rather then sitting on the front or back of the cooler. It features a Spring and Screw retention mech. for AMD systems and the Push Pin setup for Intel. It also features Direct Touch Heatpipes which is a technology I preach to people the benefits. You may not get the flash and flare of a certain company's that starts with X , Z but you will get quality and more performance for your dollar.

Cons: The Amd spring and screw system make you have to install your memory then install your heatsink then put everything in side your case. Also the little screws can be a pain to get to if you have big hands.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst one was better

Pros: Size, this thing is just sheer mass. Nice design, decent execution, still lets you use all your memory slots and actually access them. Now these are equipped with a 4-pin fan, which is good. Heatpipes are a nice touch. Stock fan actually moves some air. Base is good enough seeing as how the heatpipes directly contact the CPU, this is just a selling point though and in my experience doesn't equate to better cooling performance.

Cons: The fan gave out on me the first day I had it. The bases of these could be a bit smoother, shouldn't require any modification by the user seeing as how the price of these is creeping up to what the other heatsinks cost.

Other Thoughts: I see Antec has an identical cooler but costing more, maybe better quality control? Kind of like Asus/ASRock, in my opinion. If Antec has recently acquired Dynatron their QC needs improving, if the merger of the two is a work in progress I can understand QC not being so great yet. Still overall a great product. I removed the shroud, placed just a basic Antec 120mm 3-pin fan where the stock fan was, and it's working great. 4Ghz 555BE (dual-core, not unlocked) under hours of load only hits 32C.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Works very well, smooth fan noise. Not as heavy as some of the really large air coolers. Very tight mounting lets the heatsink base press all the way into the cpu for maximum thermal conductivity. In a performance class well above its pricepoint.

Cons: Mounting can be a little tricky, however once you figure it out it's actually quite simple and works very well so I don't really see this as a con.

Other Thoughts: Running an i7-875k OC to 3.8 Ghz stable with this cooler. Was using a Corsair H50 before and at 3.8 would spike the temps up over 75, now they run around 70 at full load which is what I wanted. I wanted to have the highest stable overclock without going over 70 degrees.

Other Components:
Case: Coolermaster HAF 932
Motherboard: Asus Maximus III Extreme
CPU: Intel Core i7-875k @ 3.8 GHz
Memory: Adata 1600-DDR3
GFX: 2x Asus GTx 470 SLI
PSU: XFX 850 Watt Black Edition

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't perform well

Pros: It's cheap, sometimes they're on sale. Comes with thermal paste and proper hardware to install on the the AM3 & 1156, 775, 1366 sockets.

Cons: I wouldn't mount this on any computer. First thing that really stood out was the contact surface it makes with the CPU. No way it'll cooled the CPU with the rough/uneven surface. It needs to be sanded to make it smooth. I don't see much of a difference in temperature compared to OEM heatsinks.

Other Thoughts: I strongly advise anyone that buys this product to keep an eye on their CPU temps and remember when you purchased this product because of the open 30-day window for an RMA>

5 out of 5 eggsA Follow Up

Pros: See previous review.

Cons: See previous review.
Not enough tension in the springs. (hence the mod in this review)

Other Thoughts: I've you've read my previous review, you know I love this sink. Sadly Newegg is charging more than the $25 + free shipping I got for it. HOWEVER, this is still a wonderful heatsink and will once again be worth your money with this simple mod.
1)Remove the C-clips (carefully, they will shoot from the tension) that hold the the thumbscrew rod and spring to the base mount arm assembly.
2)At the top of the thumbscrew, add a thick washer so the spring has less travel distance, hence tightening the spring.
3)Place the thumbscrew rod and spring back in the base mount arm assembly.
4)Now you should just have to apply a modicum of force to the top of the thumb screw rod and return the C-clip back to it's original location. This should make the thumbscrew rod taught and give it a secure, stiff feeling.
5)Mount the heatsink as instructed. The heatsink should no longer have any wobble from loose springs and will be considerably more taut and secure.
6) Enjoy 5-8C drop in temps. However

5 out of 5 eggsWay to go dynatron!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: well just looking over the design of this cooler to me it looked well designed and put together good. now i have used dynatron for alot of intell builds but now that they have ones for amd too i though i would give it a try. i have had the cooler for about 6 months now and its going strong. i hve never seen a after market cooler perform this well for the price and that includes the liquid cooling systems i have owned. my cpu idle is about 25C with max load temps of 32C on an K9N2GM-FIH am2+ board from msi with a am3 955 BE at stock speeds. and the best thing about this cooler i think is the heat pipes are not blocked by a plate they sit directly on the cpu (smart choice for getting rid of heat faster) and the fan is open so it can blow cool air on the heat sync that sits on top of the heat pipes giving it better more efficient cooling.

Cons: now i know this is a good product but it still has some minor flaws its not perfect but close enough. on start up when it gets going its a bit louder then what it will be after your system boots up in about 5 min (typical for most 4 pin fans for now). mounting this was a bit hard on an msi mb but nothing a am2 or am3 bracket from another mb wont fix (using a solid metal bracket with the barrel tubes that are threaded (instead of the msi bracket that has holes that have hex nuts on the botom of the bracket) from my am2+ asus mb that went out on me) that made it easy to mount.

Other Thoughts: my system specs are
K9N2GM-FIH mother board from MSI
6 gigs of pc26400 aka ddr2 800
Amd 955BE quad core cpu
Evga GTX260 ssc edition
thermaltake armor MX case
Sigma Monster 850 constant psu @40C
Creative X-FI fatality championship edition

4 out of 5 eggsPleasant;y Surprised

Pros: In short, awesome. Keeps things nice and cool, in my particular rig it is quite attractive. Doesn't need high quality thermal grease to perform, so it is a legit product that really does its job. Nice touch with the direct-contact heatpipes. On my motherboard it covers the first RAM slot but I am still able to place and remove RAM without taking the cooler off.

Cons: Quality control at this product's assembly plant must be pretty lenient on what gets shipped. I didn't have a problem with the cooler I received, it works great, but a visual inspection reveals a fairly rough assembly, especially where the heatpipes and the sink meet. Probably wouldn't hurt to sand it just a *little*. I didn't sand mine, and it works just fine, but I used a whole tube of Arctic Silver, too.

Other Thoughts: This product is very similar to AMD's way of business. Offer a comparable product to the industry leaders, but at a MUCH fairer price. Best bang for the buck cooler on the market, hands down. It is a plug'n'play component either way you swing, Intel or AMD, but it seems a little easier on an AM3 platform.

1 out of 5 eggsCurved contact surface

Pros: Low cost, looks good, quiet


Other Thoughts: I had this on a i7 860 1156 and my temps would rise pretty quick. The mounting pins don't really put a lot of pressure on the CPU heat spreader for starters, but the real issue was when I checked the surface of the contact area and it was convex. Therefore, the actual contact surface was quite small.
My computer would do OK on normal tasks, but when it was tested with prime95 or when I was doing some heavy work, it would shut down due to overheating. I threw this in the trash and bought a Cooler Master hyper 212 plus on sale and it keeps my temps down at near room temp at idle and never above 52 at load. Maybe I got a bad one due to poor quality control. Looked nice, I liked the fan connector cable.

5 out of 5 eggsexceeds expectations

Pros: this is a fantastic cooler for the price. I was expecting something slightly better than the stock cooler for my Phenom II x4 955, what I got was a pleasant surprise. this, combined with good case airflow, keeps a 125W chip running at 28° idle and rarely if ever gets over 45°. it fits easily in an antec p180B. I don't particularly care about fan noise, however if you do it's not loud but it certainly isn't silent.

Cons: in my case the provided thumbscrews for AM3 mounting were too short to reach the threading recessed in the plastic brace that sits underneath the motherboard (MSI NF980-G65). I solved this by sanding the brace. also, the cooler overhangs the first RAM slot and part of the second. I was able to use the slots by installing the RAM first but there's no way I could reseat or remove the RAM without first removing the cooler.

Other Thoughts: the grooves between the heatpipes where they make contact with the processor are fairly deep, I was careful to fill them with arctic silver before attaching to the CPU and it hasn't been a problem temperature wise.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected.

Pros: Very nice cooler! Keeps my Phenom II 965 (OC to 4.0 at 1.47) at 30c idle and 50C under full load. Very easy to install on AM3 board.

Cons: Big and ugly. So big it doesn't allow reg 25mm thick side fan on my Antec 900 case. I found a 120mm x 120mm x 12mm fan which should do fine once it arrives.
