5 out of 5 eggsWorks even better than it looks!

Pros: When I was first thinking about about ways to to get better system stability at high overclocks I did alot of research into liquid-cooling vs air-cooling pros and cons. After realizing how much time I would need to spend in monitoring and maintaning a liquid-cooled system, I knew air was the way to go.
After months of reading reviews I decided this was probably on of the best designed heatsinks I HAVE EVER SEEN!
i must say that that a 20f drop in cpu temp is proof -posative.

Cons: Not that it needs it but a second fan would be nice.

Other Thoughts: The uv-blue fan looks real nice with my all blue light scheme.
My 20f drop in temp is 98-105f idle to 107-111f heavy load. My old temps were 120-125f idle to 129-135f heavy load. As you can see my temp drop of 20f degrees is very much a moderate calculation.
I also use A*5 as I swear by it with years of unmatched performance. I am also still in the first 200 hour break-in period.
If you have done your homework and are reading this look no further. BUY THIS!
P.S. Shipping lightning fast as usual. NEWEGG ROCKS!

5 out of 5 eggsNice cooler.

Pros: I'm using this on a Intel Q9450 with Arctic Silver 5 and have my machine around 33-36. This is with full load and a Antec 900 case.

The backplate on a 775 socket didn't need modding on a 780i board. The backplate is designed not to lay flat agasint the back of the motherboard but has a riser like on all four screw holes so the metal never touches the back of motherboard (except on the screw holes of course).

Cons: Heavy but not real bad, if you use all your screw holes on a ATX motherboard then you shouldn't have a problem.

Other Thoughts: It should be noted that I didn't screw it in as tight as possible. Some people screw it down until it dosen't turn anymore but I don't. I think Intel recommends the Q9450 to have 70 pounds of force. So that means you can probably get better temptures then I did.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat coller

Pros: Great price...all copper

Cons: No AM2 chipset adapter available

Other Thoughts: I bought this cooler not noticing that it was not compatible with the AMD Athlon 64x2 6000+. I am very impressed by the design and all copper construction. I unfortunately had to RMA this cooler as it's not AM2 compatible. I highly recommend this cooler though!!!

5 out of 5 eggsBest cooler for my specs

Pros: This cooler met all of my requirements: copper coils, 92mm standard case fan for easy replacement, extra heat sink directly on top of the base, and mounting holes for a 2nd fan on the opposite side. None of the other coolers I reviewed met all of those requirements. The clearence on this cooler is perfect. No interference with memory sticks or the large northbridge heat sink that I have. The bracket that the fan attaches too is easily removable AFTER the motherboard is installed in the case to make fan replacement a snap. My CPU runs at 36C under heavy load.

Cons: My only complaint is the motherboard has to be removed to install this on my LGA775 CPU. But that's to be expected with the hefty mounting bracket that needs to be installed to support this cooler.

Other Thoughts: I did not use the paste that came with this product since I had some of my own already so I can't comment on the quality of it. The instructions were a breeze to follow (color pictures!). I love that fact that I can use whatever 92mm fan I want with this thing. Unlike some of the popular coolers where you HAVE to use their fan and nothing else. The fan has a 3-pin connector which will fit either a 3-pin or 4-pin motherboard design, so don't let that stop you from getting this product.

5 out of 5 eggsPwnerer of heat

Pros: MASSIVE surface area, built like a truck, and relatively inexpensive for its performance. keeps my stock intel quad q6600 at 20-24C idle, have yet to see it go over 34C. (i have a well ventilated full tower also)

Cons: very large, but thats required for better heat transfer. if you aren't installing this into a full tower it probably wont fit.

Other Thoughts: all copper is freakin gr8, aluminum is a waste of space cosidering specific heat of copper is around .38 J/g with aluminum clear up at .90 J/g =P stay with copper.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT AIR COOLER

Pros: Very good CPU cooler for the money...Keeps my Quad Q6600 at 96.8 F @ running temperature and 124.0 F at full load with no overclocking

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: MSI 975 Platinum Power Up, Intel Quad Q6600, 4GB of Crucial Ballistix DDR2 800, X-Connect 550 Ultra, 2- ATI 1950 Pro in crossfire

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, cool design

Pros: Truly is whisper-silent. I use this on a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) in a studio environment--means it MUST be as low-profile as possible. This tower DOES NOT make a noise.
It has another set of screws so you can add another fan (if you're an overclocker.)
Over the previous model, HT-101, it is easier to install as instead of four discrete screw guides they give you a set of two fixed 'bridges.'

Cons: Installation is still a pain. Install this with the initial build--that way you don't have to worry about all the trouble it takes to take out the board. (LGA 775) Again, compared to it's predecessor for socket 478, it is easier overall.

Other Thoughts: I know quiet tends to be very relative, but as I said, I run a studio and if you want active cooling, I can't recommend anything else. I don't overclock, but the temp on my P4 Prescott 3.0E holds at 42 under load--(Absolutely excellent for those.) I'm about to try it on an Intel 6850.

4 out of 5 eggsNot for a Dell Dude!!

Pros: Nice product, but will have to save for my next build.

Cons: None, other than it didn't fit in my Dell

Other Thoughts: Purchased for my Dell 8250, but doesn't fit on the Dell motherboard and is turned 1/4 turn the wrong way. Wrong connector for the fan.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for Dell Computers

Pros: Lot of surface area. Cools great. Looks good with a true blue glow. I would buy agian, and encourage others to buy.

Cons: Heavy, but to me this is a pro rather than a con.

Other Thoughts: Replaced Dell's stock cooling device with this, and it got rid of the uber lag.
UPS did a great job, was on time.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Heat Sink

Pros: Lots of copper dissipates heat well. Lots of options to adapt to multiple socket types. Cool blue LED lighter fan. Optional second fan can be added for even better cooling. Nice upgraded heat sink compound.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Great value for a working product. I am pleasantly surprised. Temperature drop of +10C from that of a stock heat sink, even better with the optional second fan. This thing is a winner in my view.
