Tower CPU heatsinks have been mainstream for the past few years. While power end users may consider them to be pinnacle when it comes to performance, there are others who would prefer down draft low profile heatsinks for their versatile ability to cool not just the CPU but also its surrounding components such as RAM, MOSFET, and Northbridge chipset heatsink. Genesis combines the best of both worlds with top-notch engineering design and superior built quality and performance that are surpassed by none. Either 120mm or 140mm can be installed on the Genesis for a maximum installation of 3 fans of your choice! If you are looking to overclock your CPU to the max while keeping your system stable, we highly recommend the ultimate CPU heatsink, Genesis. The New Era of Super Cooler has arrived.

  • newegg Superior cooling performance The Genesis incorporates six Ø 6mm high quality heatpipes for effective heat transfer. And it can take both 12 and 14cm fans for a maximum installation of 3 fans for upgraded cooling performance and flexibility.
  • newegg Cools all The Genesis cools not only CPU but also MOSFET and RAM. The cooler surrounding temperature allows more stable environment for higher overclock.
  • newegg Broad compatibility The Genesis incorporates high clearance for better motherboard compatibility. And with all mounting hardware included, it features broad compatibility with CPU socket including Intel LGA775/1366/1156/1155 and AMD Socket AM2/AM2+/AM3.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a Great design

Pros: This cooler is awesome...Cools the cpu at the same time cools most of the motherboard and ram. It look great inside of my case. This will also fit inside of my Bitfenix Prodigy case as well.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggs...Just....wow.

Pros: This is possibly, by far...the best cooler I've ever seen and bought. my pc ran pretty warm before installing this cooler. afterwards, my cpu's temps weren't the only thing that dropped. On idle my intel core 2 quad stays at a cozy 25C.

Cons: ....well lets see, none? Lol, however the only small complaint I really have is the it didn't come with the mounts for a 3rd fan, can't complain too much though, those can be fairly easy to get.

Other Thoughts: I read on another reviews or 2 that their i7's stay at a fairly good temp with this cooler as well, even when OC'd. As far as I can see from it's performance (...though I could very well be wrong, but this is at a standpoint), this could possibly be the best cooler in this market at a price that I quite frankly can't negotiate with, the cooling truly is phenomenal. If I had to I would get more of these for other builds, and I most likely will! Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Effective!

Pros: Does what it's designed to do and does it well. The room my computer is in doesn't have air-conditioning, but it's able to keep the system around the ambient room temperature. It also fits a case with a center-mounted door fan without having to remove that fan.

Installing this heat-sink is extremely easy and also seems to drop my video-card temperature 10° F on average. Can't go wrong with multi-component cooling from one device.

It also looks great, in a nerdy sort of way.

Cons: Does get in the way of other components- especially in a smaller, mid-sized case like mine. Make sure to plug everything in before putting the heat-sink on. The main mounting bracket goes on first, then your RAM and all the power plugs. The heat-sink is held on by two screws and a final bracket, which is pretty easy to deal with.

Does not come with fans. That can get pricey really quick.

Other Thoughts: The lack of fans can be a blessing in disguise because you can mix and match to suit your needs. I went with two Cooler Master 120mm Excaliburs to go with this heat-sink and have been extremely happy with the results so far.

4 out of 5 eggsNo Fans!

Pros: Cool enough with only one case fan. 54C on average and it has not went over 60C. It is only an HTPC, so it is not getting that stressed although netflix movies used to make the fan get loud and with no fans this thing is still under 60C.

Cons: Price, Height - Had to mod my case, Installation screws with the springs did not reach. Had to take the springs off and just be real careful when tightening them.

5 out of 5 eggsMassively Awesome!

Pros: Solid mounting system, keeps everything above your GPU very cool, clears Corsair Vengeance Ram comfortably, and can install up to 3/140 mm fans!

Cons: Only has clips for two fans but easy enough to get more.

Other Thoughts: I went with XIGMATEK XAF-F1452 / x3 fans. I've found this cooler to be a much better solution than the contained water systems by Antek and Corsair, (I own both), for overclocking because it keeps the WHOLE top of the mobo cool and the fans are whisper quiet! 3 white 140's and UV lighting.....NICE!

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome!

5 out of 5 eggsUsing as a PASSIVE cooler

Pros: +Flexible installation. I was able to mount the heat sink in a direction other than what was intended.

+Comes with good directions and very good packaging.

+So large that it is used in a passively cooled system (no fans at all, even in the power supply) for an Intel Core i5 2405S CPU.

Cons: Like any large, premium heat sink, it is expensive.

Other Thoughts: Used in a 100% passively cooled system not unlike the one described here: formortals.com/the-solid-state-pc

Note: This heat sink was not intended for use in a passive system. Passive heat sinks are designed with wider fins. The fact that it still cools well enough to prevent overheating is remarkable.
