VIGOR GAMING CLT-M2I 92mm Thermal Electric CPU Cooler

  • Low: 2000 RPM
  • Mid: 2400 RPM
  • High: 2600 RPM
  • 4 heat pipes, Aluminum Fin & Copper Base

Get efficient processor cooling on par with liquid cooling, but without all the installation hassles and maintenance with the Vigor Monsoon II series of CPU cooling systems. Using a thermoelectric cooler, or Peltier Cooler, the unit silently pumps heat away from the processor aided by four heat pipes, aluminum fins, and a copper base, which is then pushed away via the 92mm fan.

The assembly installs just like a traditional cooling fan, but uses software to automatically control the cooling and the speed of the fan. A management unit with an LCD screen installs into a 5.25-inch bay in the front of your desktop PC. However, once installed, the Monsoon II will operate without any maintenance necessary. This model is designed to work with LGA 775 socket Intel processors, such as Pentium 4, Pentium D or Core 2 Duo processor.

  • newegg Adjustable Fan Speed A bundled front control panel with a LCD display enables automatic control of fan speed for exceptional cooling and quietness.
  • newegg Unique Cooling Performance Four high performance heatpipes maximize heat transfer for the highest level of cooling performance.
  • newegg Compatible with LGA 775 Compatible with the LGA 775 platform, the VIGOR GAMING Monsoon II CLT-M2I supports a wide range of Celeron, Pentium 4, Pentium D and the latest Core 2 Duo CPUs.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Still is keeping my cpu nice and cold. Still an amazing unit.

Cons: Absolutely none

Other Thoughts: I've been using this cpu cooler for over a year now and I've read before that people had issues with it after it reached 5000 hours. My 5.25 bay drive says that mine has been running for a little under 8000 hours and I have yet to have any issues with the unit. It still keeps my overclocked E8400 @ 4.0 ghz at 30 C idle and never above 35 C full load.

I love this thing
Best air cpu cooler ever!

2 out of 5 eggsMy third review of this...

Pros: Very cool when it works. Vigor customer service is great, they sent me a new fan and heat sink when my old one fried... FOR FREE, and I KEPT my old one which partially worked

Cons: Installed the new one they sent me tonight... and the brain of it CAUGHT ON FIRE. Like, orange fiery things and smoke kind of fire! After ripping the plug out of the back of my computer and preparing to pour a bottle of water on it, I realized it stopped burning. But now I'm left with no cooler as they just discontinued the product...

Other Thoughts: When it worked it was great. I was a big fan of this for a long time and told all my friends about how awesome it was. I still think it's a great product when it works, but what if I had my computer on and left home and it started on fire like this? I'd have burned my apartment down! It just scares me... everything was plugged in perfectly fine, I've built dozens of computers and never had a problem before, but this really scares me... if you buy this, please, PLEASE dont leave your computer on when you're away, your belongings might thank you. And again, I hate writing this review because it kept my temperatures so friggin cool (under 30C idle), but it's hazardous.

3 out of 5 eggswas great at first

Pros: i have the ultra chillTEC which is identical to this, just rebranded, at the time NE didnt carry it and i bought it from tiger, and all my other parts from NE. i purchased this for a gaming rig i was making in may 07. and i used ArcticSilver5 for the thermal paste. i read a TON of reviews b4 buying. initially, at stock clocks, was getting temps of like 16c idle, 21 c load. after some OC to like 3 ghz ish temps increased to like 28 load, i was ecstatic because i was getting much better results than any reviews id seen of this product, and then my dreams started to fade read: cons. also had to RMA the first one because the fins were all shredded, 2nd was ok.

Cons: after like 4 mths temperatures started gradually increasing and nothing seemed to be causing it, and it started outputting more and more heat into my room, now its certifiably a space heater. now one year later, it idles on stock clocks at 30c and load at about 42. this is with 5 80mm fans on the case, and i replaced the fans, i keep them constantly at 2500-2800 rpm also, its puzzling me deeply, and then all of a sudden tonight, the fan died and my cpu went past 70c setting off all kinds of alarms. i got freaked out my cpu was gonna fry. tomorrow i plan to see if it melted anything like others have said, i will try to remount it and put new paste. i might switch to a TRUE. they are cheaper and longer lasting.

Other Thoughts: striker extreme, e6700, xfx 7950gt, oczreaper pc 8500 2gb 2x1gb, xfi fatal1ty, ultra chillTEC.

it was great at first, and then its been nothing but problems getting hotter and less efficient over time, to the point where its probably= stock cooler, and im about ready to ditch it and just build a new system. with ocz reaper ram it only fits in the 2 farthest slots, the cooler is so huge, its like a school bus huge. you will most certainly chafe your knuckles on asus rampage and striker mb's installing this, and u have to pull the mb to install it cuz the backplate.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective after the warranty

Pros: work well at the beginning. Love the glowing light and the quietness.

Cons: The fan stop working after the warranty ran out. I bought this almost exactly 1 year from today, 8.18.08. my computer almost overheated. luckily I shut it down in time and checked it out. Found out the fan stop working!! This stinks!! I'd paid some high price for this and it stop working. Bad Quality! It's quite large for a cooler.

Other Thoughts: Buy at your own risk:(

5 out of 5 eggsSweet and Cool

Pros: Keeps my CPU cool, no more than 40C idle and 50C full load.

Cons: It's not really a "con", but this thing gives off a lot of heat. So make sure your case is properly ventilated. (see below)

Other Thoughts: A thing to remember is that the was the TEC chip works. It that it keeps your CPU w/in 5 degrees of the temperature in your case. This is why it's important to make sure your case is properly ventilated.

4 out of 5 eggsGood when the fan works...

Pros: When I got it, my CPU was kept at about 81F, or like 26C or something like that. I overclocked my E6600 to 3.0GHz and it still kept it just slightly over room temperature... which is insanely good. Best CPU cooling device I've ever used except...

Cons: At precisely 2879 hours (yes, I kept track), the fan completely stopped. At 2868 hours, the fan started to spin very slow, and if I didn't watch my temperatures, I would see 70 degrees C (NOT Fahrenheit) on the display, which is obviously bad, and smelled burning plastic. I contacted the company and they said they'd send me a new fan, and hopefully they respond soon because I really need a new one to play games and hate using a giant fan to blow through my computer...

Other Thoughts: Excellent product when it works, but most people seem to notice the fan dying in about a year. Luckily mine died right before the warranty ended. As long as it's working properly it rocks, but just keep an eye out for strange noises and the fan not working properly... I'm on my comp right now with the fan not spinning and the cooler is so awesome that as long as I'm idling and have a fan blowing through my comp, it won't overheat, and that's with two 8800GTS's in SLI heating the thing up!

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING

Pros: I LOVE THIS THING! Started out with a C2DE6600 with this thing kept it nice and cool. Moved up to an E8400 when it came out, kept it nice and breezy as well, round low 20's never above 30 degrees celsius! Now having just overclocked my processor to 4 ghz still amazed at how cool it is, even in the hottest part of my house!

Cons: Really, for the quality product you get, price isn't so much of a con for me. Sure it's expensive, but you get what you pay for! It is a big unit also, make sure you have room around your cpu socket!

Other Thoughts: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 4.0 ghz, Asus Maximus Formula, 4 gbs ram ddr2 pc6400, Ultra X3 Kilowatt psu, 2x 150 gb Raptors in RAID 0, 2x 500 gb WD's in RAID 0, ATI HD2900XT, Vista Ultimate x64, Thermaltake Black Kandalf, 24" Sceptre...amazing!!!

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate Review 10 Months

Pros: When I first got this cooler it kept things nicely cool. It's sitting on an Intel Core 2 Quad and I was very happy.

Cons: At 10 months use (5K hours) the fan failed. I had to cut the failed fan cable to replace the fan. I have just plugged the new fan in and am letting it free run because I'm not keen on removing the whole thing to solder in a new fan. I'll see how much of a contortionist I'll need to be to reconnect everything nicely.

Other Thoughts: I understand the fan is the first and probable point of failure. Having said that, Vigor should put a connector on just the fan so it is easier to replace. If I do end up removing this cooler I think I'll just move to water cooling - though I suspect even that has its issues...
