4 out of 5 eggsBig Boy Cooler

This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

Pros: The size of this is both a pro and a con.
Bought this based on reviews of this here at Newegg, not disappointed in its performance, but am with installation (covered later).

This is a massive cooler (height wise). If you have a mid tower case or even a Full tower case with a side fan, just make sure you have the case width to be able to meet the clearance.

I have a Thermaltake A71 with an ASUS Z97-Pro Gamer MOBO and it fits with room to spare.
It does NOT impede the RAM channels and although it would be a tighter fit, they WOULD fit if I used all 4 channels.

This thing keeps my CPU cool and I mean cool.
I have it coupled with Arctic Silver thermal paste and they do wonders.

This in conjunction with the Thermaltake case and case fans, my i5-4690K and GTX-960 card have no heat issues even under heavy load.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked and the blue LED on the MASSIVE radiator block looks wicked

Cons: Installation and instructions

They are just plain bad
This is not a con of just this particular cooler, but the Socket LGA1150/1155 in general

I have always hated the pins, especially the plastic ones.
They almost never line up all at once correctly and I spend quite a while realigning them and trying to snap them in.

There are NO written instructions on this - just pictures.
They are discernible, but I pity anyone who has never installed an aftermarket CPU cooler before with this one.
The mounting brackets have 3 channels to line it up depending on which LGA socket you have, so that adds to the "slack" on lining up the pins to the board.

After at least 30 mins, I finally had my final "click" and satisfying feel of the last pin securing and it was go time.

This has one fan out of the box, which you can mount on either side, with another bracket to attach another one if purchased separate.

One thing to keep in mind is to check the fan before firing it up.
Mine had one of the small rubber spacers/feet come off the block and stick to a fan blade so it would catch the block while spinning.
This was out of the box - could have potentially damaged this if I had not checked before powering on.

Other Thoughts: If you have installed other after market coolers, this should not be a problem for you
If you have a large enough case - this one will keep your CPU nice and frosty

5 out of 5 eggsTricky Installation - Read me if you are AMD

This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

Pros: It is a very large heat sink! Yay! Has a fan on it. Yay!

Cons: Bad installation - to those that tried to force this bad boy onto your cpu and messed it up big time - this is how you do it right.
0. Take the Motherboard out for 1000% ease. Or you better have one long screw driver and tiny hands to get into the kinks of your machine.
1. You put the heatsink on top, try to clip it - "DA FUQ, THE CLIPS ARE HELLA SHORT...."
2. Loosen the screws on the base plate for AMD models that you would clip the heatsink onto.
This allows the base plate to raise a few cm to - you guessed it! TO ACTUALLY FIT PERFECTLY!!!
3. Clip this bad boy muda fuqa on.

Other Thoughts: I am illuminati.

This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

Pros: Works well and inexpensive, did not push into the RAM on my mobo (AsRock Z97X Killer). Deepcool customer service is usually pretty good.

Cons: Like many other people, I found installing this heatsink to be a pain. The only form of instructions are some poorly printed pictures on the back of the box. I've installed a lot of heatsinks, and this one still took me a good 15 minutes of fiddling with to sit properly, and clamp in.

Have a look at the pictures, and think about how the mounting brackets you need to use will work before you apply thermal paste and attempt to mount the heatsink.

This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

Pros: Well built, cool looking design for cheap

Cons: Way harder than it should be to install. Just take your time or end up bending pins on cpu and turning this purchase into a couple hundred dollar purchase.

2 out of 5 eggsCool and not so Cool

This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

Pros: Great looking CPU cooler that does a decent job of cooling, if you can get it mounted properly. 4 copper heat pipes with an alloy block keeps my CPU cores mid 30s at idle and high 40s under load. I bought this because my 2nd Corsair H60 failed on me. I figured why not try a fan cooler at least I will know when the fan fails, unlike the H60 water pump.

Cons: Horrible installation instructions and horrible mounting hardware for the LGA 1155 socket. The instructions are graphic "pointy talky" style mounted on the side of the box. What limited text there is printed on the box is extremely tiny and too hard to read. You are better off getting the instructions online so you can zoom in and read. To mount the cooler, they tried to be fancy with plastic friction locks and just didn't pull it off. It is very difficult to seat the plastic friction locks into the MoBo correctly (it shouldn't take 45 minutes to mount a CPU cooler). After only two days installed, gravity won and pulled the cheap plastic friction locks out of the MoBo and my CPU overheated. So I cannibalized mounting hardware from my busted Corsair H60 to fix it. No worries about the cooler falling out of the MoBo now. Now the LGA 1150 mounting hardware looks a lot sturdier and is all metal. However I have a :LGA 1155 so if you still have this socket set stay away from this cooler.

Other Thoughts: My MoBo: BioStar TZ68a+ LGA 1155
CPU: Intell i5-2500K

4 out of 5 eggsSolid CPU Cooler

This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

Pros: Very quiet, keeps my core I7 cool, and blue LED looks good.

Cons: Some difficulty in installation, as it is difficult to reach the four pins that go into the motherboard because they are far underneath the fan.

Other Thoughts: Other than the minor installation difficulty, a great cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsCool and sexy

This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

Pros: Has dropped the temps on my 8320 to 45 celsius in idle, and ~58 celsius in SWTOR and TESO. My next move up will be liquid cooling, but until then this will abide nicely. Plenty of clearance in my Corsair Carbide 540.

Cons: Wasn't free and doesn't burn calories.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

Pros: Quiet operation
Consistent Airflow
Comes with thermal compound/grease
Minimal power draw
Easy on the eyes (Blue LED Lighting)
An upgrade compared to OEM Heatsinks
Fan header cable is of decent length, 4 pins.

Cons: I am not a fan of plastic pins for mounting the heatsink to the motherboard. The plastic push-pins tend to wear out or bend/snap at some point.
The fan is attached with thin (Aluminum?) brackets on both ends compared to being bolted/snapped in. This doesn't feel as sturdy.

Other Thoughts: I reversed the orientation of the fan to a pull-push fashion. Although this increases the noise levels and restricts airflow, I found a significant temperature drop during consistent CPU usage. The ambient temperature around the chassis is lower than operating temperatures and I figured I would rather push cold air into the heatsink than pull away heat from the heatsink.
I also replaced the thermal compound/grease with a generous application of Arctic Silver 5.
