SilenX EFZ-92HA3 92mm 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearing Effizio CPU Cooler

  • <2000 RPM
  • 22-48 CFM
  • Copper Heatpipes, Anodized Aluminum Fins
ICON Loading...

A step up in size from the EFZ-80HA3 is the new EFZ-92HA3. As long as spacing permits, this is the ideal cooler for those with smaller cases. Performs better than your stock cooler while operating at a lower noise, it's a perfect complement to your new system and ideal for those with moderate processing needs. If you're not running a highly overclocked gaming system, there's no need to spend much on a giant heatsink that will yield no benefits to you. The EFZ-92HA3 utilizes two 6mm heatpipes that directly contact the CPU and are intertwined to provide four effective heatpipes worth of thermal dissipation. A universal mounting bracket supports the widest range of current AMD and Intel sockets, including the latest multicore Phenom and i3/i5/i7 processors.

SilenX has included an Effizio 92mm fan with 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearings for years of reliable performance and no need to purchase any additional fans, though you have the option of adding a second fan for more performance. The installation process is easy with a typical install time of under 10 minutes and does not require the removal of the motherboard.

  • newegg Ultra-quiet, efficient cooling With two 6mm copper intertwined heatpipes that contact CPU directly and anodized aluminum fins, the SilentX EFZ-92HA3 offers superior heat conduction and dissipation. The included 92mm fan with 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearings delivers 22-48 CFM air flow at a noise level of 8-24dBA, perfect for your moderate cooling needs. For higher cooling performance, you can add a second fan.
  • newegg Broad compatibility Thanks to the universal mounting bracket, the SilentX EFZ-92HA3 is compatible with the widest range of current AMD and Intel sockets, including Intel LGA775/LGA1155 / LGA1156 / LGA1366, and AMD Socket 754 / 939 / 940 / AM2 / AM2+ / AM3.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, would recommend

Pros: Very quiet.
Looks cool.
Keeps the system *much* cooler than stock cooler.
Includes a small thing of thermal paste, "25% silver included" it says.

Cons: Not major, but it took a little longer than it should have to get the thing installed and to "click" in place (AMD A10, socket FM2).

Other Thoughts: I didn't purchase it from Newegg but it worked so much better than the stock cooler I had to come write a quick review!

5 out of 5 eggsgreat little cooler

Pros: EASY to install (LGA1366)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I used this cooler for a friends build I put together with some new/old parts, it fits very well in a Corsair SPEC-01, installing it was easy, just place the O-ring into position, and push the pins into place to secure it, than snap the cooler on the O-ring with the tabs, it didn't take the force some people are saying it took to secure it at all, temps are better than stock Intel on the LGA 1366

3 out of 5 eggsIts only okay, If that.

Pros: Alrighty, the anodized Aluminum fins make this Heat sink look pretty good, and the finish on them is hard to remove/scratch off. The included fan is whisper quiet. The heat pipes and base are smooth and leveled. But unfortunately, that's it for me on the pros.

Cons: This thing is hard to mount, and installing it will require you to apply enough force to probably snap your Motherboard in half if you get impatient.
However, the mounting isn't what got to me. What really bothers me about this cooler is that the base of the heatsink that contacts and transfers the heat does not even cover the entire CPU. The base could not entirely cover an AMD Phenom II x4 910. About 11% of the cpu was not contacting the heatsink contact, regardless of how it was mounted. The very first day I installed this, I went right to Cinebench and did a quick temperature test. Temp software reported that the IDLE temperature immediately went from 34c to 62c, after which the temperature finally dropped and stayed at 56c max( 2c better than stock ) for the duration of the benchmark.
The tiny base of the heatsink doesn't do the halfway decent design any justice simply because, not enough heat is transferred to the heatsink if the heatsink doesn't cover the cpu entirely.

Other Thoughts: The fan does not move the air that I would like, but the amount of noise it makes compensates for that.

5 out of 5 eggsperfect solution

Pros: I've used about 15 of the smaller 80mm version of this cooler and it only offers a medium level of cooling. They're a lot better than stock cooling but not as good as larger, heavier ones with more pipes. Then this 92mm model came along. It is definitely worth the slight price difference. I placed this on a vishera-6300 and an i5-4570. Both ran at a very safe temperature, around 15 degrees Celsius below stock on average.

The best benefit is that it is slightly quieter than the smaller version, which is already very quiet. No other cooler I've used has this quietness vs cooling efficiency ratio.

Cons: The cooling level was sufficient and safe for long term system stability but I didn't try overclocking either of the CPUs. I have a feeling it wouldn't do very well. I've seen coolers that cost 50% more keep the same chips at room temperature under most normal operating conditions.

Other Thoughts: I used Arctic Silver thermal paste instead of the stock stuff, which didn't look very effective. That's always a good idea no matter what cooler you get.

4 out of 5 eggsAs Expected

Pros: Provided your case has adequate cooling, this heatsink works like a charm.

Cons: See my other thoughts, but there are better ways to attach a heatsink than the traditional "spring-based clamp" which is scary easy to slip and punch a hole in the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Many reviews are mentioning that this heatsink requires "extra" force to get the retention clip to secure to the motherboard. I don't feel this is the case. For those who have been building systems for 10+ years, we know how difficult the clips were from the early 2000's. This heatsink does not have the fancy hand-latch systems that other heatsinks have to make fastening effortless.

2 out of 5 eggsSilenX EFZ-92HA3 92mm CPU Cooler

Pros: Looks Pretty. Price is not unreasonable for what you get.

Cons: Hold down clamp is unreasonably hard to use. Not much give. You DO run the risk of damaging something. Fan is much too slow and doesn't move enough air for most overclockable processors.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a CPU cooler to use on an AMD 965 BE processor. First of all, there are only two heat tubes in contact with the processor, not four. The base was fairly smooth with no perceptable joint between the copper tubes and the aluminum. Once I coated the base with Artic Silver 5 and worked it in, then applied compound to the processor, it came time to put the unit on the processor. This will scare the daylights out of most novices, as the mounting clamp is very hard to put on. It required me to remove the PSU from my unit to install. Really SilenX? It doesn't need to be that stiff. Once I got it on and everything up and running and the paste started to settle in, I found that the one fan was not going to move enough air to cool my non overclocked processor, even running Cool N Quiet. I ended up adding on another 92mm fan on the backside to keep the temps below 60C while doing video encoding. I would looks elsewhere at different coolers. There are better and safer choices.

4 out of 5 eggsGood CPU Cooler For The Money

Pros: This cooler is nice and compact for people who are limited on s[ace in their case. Keeps my overclocked A6 at cool full load temps! Very impressed with this compact silent design!

Cons: May interfere with memory with a dual fan setup on ITX boards. Only 2 heat pipes.

Other Thoughts: If this cooler had 3 maybe 4 heat pipes it would be probably 15% more efficient. Also I love the stock style cooler under the fins, that was a selling point for me!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

Pros: Quiet-Can't hear it over my 3 other case fans
Cool-Keeps my AMD Phenom x4 955 3.2Ghz Quad core at a nice 30'C idle, tops at around 42-3'C At max load.
Looks pretty cool in my opinion.
Cheap

Cons: Fins bend extremely easy.
Fan only has a 3-pin connector.

Other Thoughts: The other people that are complaining about the gaps in the copper pipe; Mine didn't have any exceptional gaps.
