2 out of 5 eggsExcellent Heat Sink, Super Quiet

Pros: *Super Quiet
*Keeps my i5 below 30ºC even without a working fan
*Only had to RMA it once

Cons: *The fan doesn't actually work
*The heatsink blades are so sharp they can lacerate your hand before you know what's happening.

Other Thoughts: Get this cooler, install it. Not super happy with the Intel mounting, it lets it rotate on the CPU a little bit. Get the fan cord from it's convenient location INSIDE the heatsink and hook that up to motherboard. Fan doesn't run. If I had to guess I'd say one of the wires got damaged in pulling the cord out of its resting spot. The next one came the same way, but I handled that one with baby gloves so it appears to be running alright.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Unknown

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: I should have paid more attention to all the DOA reviews Q4 of 2014. Turned out to be terrible waste of money to have a useless hunk of metal shipped to me (overnight option even) and then have to pay another shipping charge just to get about half of my total investment back.

2 out of 5 eggsno better then stock

Pros: it works...kinda...sorta, cool lookin I guess

Cons: I mean it works in the sence the cpu doesnt overheat but nearly 50 bucks for possibly a degree is not even close to worth it. maybe if I give it a chance to settle it might improve but I doubt it. I installed my stock cooler mostly because this is a pain if you try to install it the right way but I also wanted to see if there was a real difference. my stock cooler at idle sat at a steady 32 Celsius at idle 55ish with a load and as I monitor this thing its sittin right around 30 31ish. if you want to overclock just water cool, ah just raised to 32, literaly no load other then the monitor program.

5 out of 5 eggsCorrected review

Pros: Keeps my FX4300 cooler than my I7 liquid cooling unit on another rig. The AMD FX4300 idles at an unbelievable 9c and peaks out at at a whopping 35c. Well that's what "Speccy" says. BIOS says 11c at idle.

Cons: It's heavy!

Other Thoughts: I've had this cooler for 5+ years and just installed it...I never got around to using it until recently. I mounted it horizontally as it's heavy. I just bought a CNPS9700 and cant wait to use it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler

Pros: This thing dropped my CPU temp (AMD A10-6700) from 104f to 80.6f from the heatsink that came with the CPU.

Cons: It is a little big. I had to trim some fins so that I could close the case.

4 out of 5 eggsi7-4790K

Pros: Love how cool it looks. But seriously, it dropped the temps on my i7 to 30 C idle and around 70 C on load. Was using the ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2 as kind of the control since it worked well on my Q6600, and my temps on that were 40 C idle.

Cons: I either don't have it seated right or something is weird, sometimes I'll have a 10 degree difference in temps on my cores.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and efficient but carefully read instructions before installing

Pros: Runs quietly and very efficiently with AMD 8370.

Cons: Installation was a royal pain. At first I was part of the "screws are too short" crowd and couldn't believe a major manufacturer could bungle like that. But after reading a couple comments here, I realized my mistake. The instructions really need to be clearer. Also, you need to be careful handling it. The fins are sharp! This thing is huge, so make sure you have plenty of room in your case.
