4 out of 5 eggsAcceptable cooling

Pros: Was switching to a cooler master 361 case And I needed a cooler to replace my CNPS11x and since I'm not a fan of metal wire clips holding my CPU fan on I chose this cooler. With a full size fan instead of the included one and without the 80mm It kept my undervolted 8320 at a solid 58C after an hour of prime95 with no throttling and hit 64C with furmark (270x) along with prime. See other thoughts.

The mounting system Is very solid on the AMD side; Got very good mounting pressure

Because it blows towards the motherboard it kept my northbridge and VRMs at a better temperature than what I had with my tower cooler.

Cons: It couldn't even hope to cool the mild 4.0 OC I had with the cnps11x under load struggling along 34c at idle, I didn't expect it to however so no eggs docked it's the price you pay for having a compact case with a compact cooler. Better but similar results at stock, didn't test it either under load.

When I First opened the cooler I saw the protective plastic covering was slightly loose in a corner, some of the adhesive had dried into a few spots of concrete like bumps which I couldn't get off. I could have potentially used acetone, goo gone, or sandpaper to remove it but didn't want to really risk damaging it before I tested it for the potential of returns/warranty As well has having visible machining marks; of which I knew before my purchase. Still pulled its weight however

Other Thoughts: I partly owe the good temperatures to having all my case fan locations populated and having a case that is partially segmented with the VGA card as well has having a full size fan on it. Two 80mm exhaust fans and a 120mm intake adjacent to the cooler.

The slim fan that came with it was the perfect size for the elite 361's side panel fan location; I hadn't expected to use a fan there considering it can't even fit a normal 15mm slim fan with the graphics card installed. The 10mm fan was quite noisy hooked to a standard 3pin fan connector so I stuck a low noise adapter on there and it pulls hot gpu air directly out of the case very effectively along with the card itself partially partitioning the case it took quite some time for furmark to do anything to cpu temps. I can't comment on the fans longevity but with the other reviews on here I didn't intend to use it. Time will tell.

The cooler came with extra screws for standard thickness fans (25mm) as well as some cushioning material to help quiet whatever fan you install. I ended up using them as spacers for a loose fan.

The undervolted 8320 pulls 1.225v under load according to CPUID's hardware monitor, I suspect the cooler can cool a stock 8320 under normal loads but I haven't tested.

I didn't use the included thermal paste and for a minute thought the cooler didn't come with any, I mistook the bag of paste for a desiccant pack.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat cooling in SFF when both fans work

Pros: Great design and fit. It keeps FM2+ A10-6790K at 54C at full load in a Coolermaster Elite 120 mini ITX with fans pulling across fins into power supply fan. Also running a GIGABYTE GV-R927XOC-2GD in the small system with no overheat issues.

Awesome customer support! (See Cons)

Cons: The small fan started making noise after a couple of weeks. After a few months it sounded like a gremlin was chewing up the inside of the computer.
On the plus of the con, an email to Xigmatek support about the fan failure was answered in one hour asking for proof of purchase. A new set of fans arrived in 1 week. Awesome service!
Nice and quiet now.

Other Thoughts: A little tough to assemble. Make sure that the screws that hold the heatsink to the motherboard are all the way into the spacers of the mounting arms. If they are loose you will not get full contact on the processor. The screws should extend outside of the nuts that are attached on the back of the motherboard.

2 out of 5 eggsFan problems

Pros: Fits well in small htpc config. Cooling is good with both fans working properly.

Cons: Small fan started making noises just 2 weeks after installing. After 5 months small fan is close to dying, bearings failing. Large fan bearings are also starting to fail.

1 out of 5 eggsNOPE

Pros: Fits in low profile places, like my htpc
Looks nice

Cons: Garbage quality, the small fan died after about 2 weeks and the larger fan started making a ticking noise after 2 days which has now rendered the PC unusable because the plastic fan blades were so out of balance I did not trust the fan to work all the time.

Other Thoughts: I have owned MAY MANY coolers, until this experience Xigs where among my favorite.. guess I'm going back to noctua.. never had even close to an issue with them
