1 out of 5 eggsworst cooler i ever bought!!!

Pros: None what so ever.

Cons: Worst cpu cooler amd brackets are to tight and poorly built on heating blocked rma it 2 times because the heat block busted on the force of the brackets. I took the cooler off and found out its not even metal its metal coated with a gradient type of rock substance which was very brital do not buy this cooler. For the price you can get a cooler master or raigintek cooler which looks the same but way better quality!

Other Thoughts: I have bought man coolers in past.... i rather have a cooler thats ok than one that just breaks on installation each time.

4 out of 5 eggsSuperb performance for price

Pros: Installed this on a Kaveri 7600. Obviously it's overkill for a CPU rated at 65W, but I have it set to maintain the 3.8 ghz turbo under load, so at this price, the Ice Wind seemed like a good deal (I was right - read on).

I ditched the AMD heat sink and fan that the Kaveri came with, because it was pathetic. I instead installed an AMD heatpipe cooler (AVC Phenom style). In a cool room, I was idling @ nearly 40C, and under load, fan would get pretty noisy just to keep the CPU at around 50C+.

With the Ice Wind, I'm idling in the high 20s (around 8 degrees above ambient). Under stress testing, it hovers around 40C with the fan still at it's minimum rated 500 RPM (fan test revealed speed from 500 to 1,600 RPM, basically what the specs listed). If I wanted to I could probably adjust for more fan speed, but I prefer the quiet 500 rpm. 40C is around 15C improvement over the AVC/AMD heatpipe cooler, so I'm very comfortable with that as a max temp.

The price is fantastic, and if properly installed, it should easily compete with a 212 evo, with far less installation hassle (no back plate removal necessary for AMD install).

Cons: Here's the main con, and I can't say if it's a con or not, but here's my experience: I checked the bottom of the cooler plate to see how flat it was. It was very smooth, almost polished (that's good), but I found that it wasn't ideally flat (I used an AMD cpu and held it against the plate, then shined a light through; the light very slightly peeked through a gap in the center of the CPU+cooler interface).

It seemed to me, therefore, that the edges of the bottom plate were the slightest bit raised compared to the center. In other words, the surface was slightly concave. You'd rather have convex, so that the center of the plate is making best contact with the center of the CPU where the die is. I believe this non-ideal contact was mostly due to the edges of the aluminum plate, along with the copper heat pipes being slightly raised at the extreme edges of the aluminum plate. Basically, the four "edges" of the cooler plate seemed to interfere with center of the CPU actually making "perfect" contact with the center of the cooler plate.

Anyway, I filed down all four of the extreme edges of the cooler plate where the four sides/edges of the AMD lid would sit (you could actually trace the CPU onto the heatsink to see where this would roughly be). Then I hand sanded the base a bit, then I ran the entire base plate across a flat piece of sandpaper on a table. The result to my eyes was flatter than the original (less light seemed to eek through the gaps).

I don't know if it would have been a problem if I didn't do this sanding. Even after sanding, I wasn't 100% happy with it being "razor perfect", but as my results above show, it works extremely well right now, so I guess it's good. And honestly, it might have been fine to begin with, and I just didn't clean the surfaces of my "test" CPU to make sure it made flat contact with the cooler plate.

--

It seems like this thing will be a total pain to remove from the motherboard. It just clips on (no cam lever like most "good" CPU coolers), so some pressure and a flat head screw driver will probably be necessary to lever the clip off if you ever need to remove the cooler.

--

The fan was slightly difficult to get clipped on. I used a small flat head screwdriver to pull on the little tabs and wrap them around the fan holes. It was not an awful experience, but I feel like there are better ways to get a fan clipped to a heat sink. Not a big deal, just that the clips are a little finicky.

--

Also a possible con: it's BIG. That's a good thing for cooling, but it did just barely fit (height wise) into my Cooler Master N200 case, which says it can handle 160mm tall coolers, so the Ice Wind *will* fit into cases that allow 160mm tall coolers. The cooler did not interfere with my RAM (micro ATX board with 2 ram slots). In fact, it didn't even "reach" the RAM, but if it had, there would have been some clearance (in other words, the fan, when attached, was hovering above the height of my GSkill snip

Other Thoughts: I did not use the included thermal paste, so I can't say if it's good or not. Used some Arctic MX-2 (which I highly recommend).

If you install this and you're getting worse than stock temps, you installed it wrong, or perhaps the base of yours was poorly machined. The reviewer before me said it was worse than stock.... but the review didn't specify AMD or Intel, and I can't speak to the intel installation procedure, so maybe there was an issue with that. Also, I suppose it's possible the base of his/her heat sink had this "concave" issue, which resulted in a lack of good contact with the center die of the CPU. But the most I could do would be to speculate. I know that in my installation, it works amazingly well, and significantly better than a stock cooler.

I used the "pea" method of thermal paste (not a coating/layer). Since MX-2 is non conductive, I was comfortable using a bit more than the typical amount, but I still didn't use much (literally the size of a small pea), and I still saw it squish out the sides, so I know it was making good contact.

Something that's neither a pro nor a con: the fan was slightly different than the model Newegg shows in the photos. It's still a deep cool 120mm PWM, it still has the blue fins, but the frame is slightly different (although it is still a rubberized material). All I know is that it's basically silent @ it's lowest 500 RPM, and seems to cool extremely well, so I don't think it's a big deal.

Conclusion/Recommendation: I took off 1 egg for these things
1) lack of cam/lever install clip, which would make installation and removal easier
2) the lack of clips to add a 2nd fan
3) the possible flatness issues of the base (which I can't confirm as being an actual issue or not, but based on my observations, I believe my sanding modification improved base plate contact)

For the price, and considering how it's performing for me personally, I can't possibly imagine a better air cooler. I would recommended it highly, but of course, take into consideration the cons I've listed.

1 out of 5 eggsDid no better than the junk stock cooler.

Pros: Cheap for what's supposed to be a high end aftermarket cpu cooler.
Relatively quiet.

Cons: This oversized outrageous looking cooler is (at best) doing no better than the junk stock cooler that came with the cpu. It's actually spiking a few degrees hotter than it did before. Right now with the cpu at 100% it's hitting upwards of 85 deg. C - Very near shut-down temps. I've mounted many hsf setups before and even ditched the provided thermal past in favor of using arctic silver. Furthermore, I live in a northern climate - there's still snow on the ground outside and it's not exactly warm inside at the moment so it's not an issue with hot ambient temps. I must say, for the price, my time wasted, and the size, I'm completely unimpressed. I had reservations about a cooling system with such a small heat sink in direct contact with the cpu and such a large gap between it and the oversized secondary heat sink (heat pipes or not) and now my suspicions have been confirmed. This is bad design at it's finest (all about looks for the sake of marketing with no regard to actual functionality).

Other Thoughts: If you are unable to produce a quality design, please do the world a favor and don't design things - work at mcdonalds instead.
If you are a company that disregards the value of thoroughly testing your products before you spew them out to the world, please hurry up and go out of business so we don't have to deal with your garbage.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler

Pros: $22 120mm cooler with a great heat pipe arrangement. I did some looking after this came in, and its a re-badged more expensive cooler. thanks to some corporate changing of the guard. As far as design goes its awesome. It let me take an Fm2+ chip from 3.6 to 4.6 and didn't break a sweat. It could of gone a bit higher but my board was the limiting factor at 4.6.

Cons: The thermal grease is a joke. It some how broke down in about 2 hours of testing. Not a huge deal i have some extra more expensive stuff laying around for this type of situation.

Other Thoughts: I may buy 1 for my FX rig.

3 out of 5 eggsThis fan is huge!!!!

Pros: Looks like it would work fantastic if it fit in my case

Cons: This is the biggest heat sink/fan I have ever seen. You better check your measurements to make sure it fits. I was not able to use it.

4 out of 5 eggsNerve racking

Pros: It keeps my old I5 cool and under 145F running skyrim. ( sorry im in the us. Celsius just doesnt fly with me without google at my side xD)
its quiet and cheap. fantastic for the price but do note the cons.

Cons: while it cools fantastically. installing it was a nerve racking near nightmare. the instructions are bare as can be and honestly even after reading over it 4 times i had trouble. note. the 4 pre pins you push in before the main holding pins need to be pushed with alot of force and then they pop in, then you apply the main pin to hold. second install issue was getting it onto the bracket. it is literally tight as hell. i was nearly confinced i was going to snap my board or the clamp. nothing broke. but do note. it requires some serious force to lock in. plus side. once its in its in. lol.

Other Thoughts: If you looking for a cheap but efficient heatsink this is a great option. just make sure to read the instructions perfectly and to not have a heart attack while installing it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Great cooler. Were no reviews when I purchased it so I took a risk.

I am using a different thermal paste than what came in the box.

Worked great with stock fan, but I replaced it with two high flow ones.

I have my FX-8320 running at 4.4ghz and it never sees over 48c while playing BF4. Definitely on par with the 212 EVO

Cons: Brackets for the fan were a little tricky to get to stay on, but once you tilt the case on its side, they stay on.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: The contact surface was completely flat.

The installation could be done without access to the rear of the motherboard.

It keeps the processor reasonably cool despite a low volume, nearly silent replacement fan being used.

Cons: I'm not sure I would trust the plastic mounting ring if I were going to move the case often. The plastic mounts which pass through the motherboard from only the front are not as robust as a rear plate system. But they can easily be installed without board removal. This mount resulted in a 1 egg reduction.

The ring to mount the heat sink to is very close to the top of some components on my Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI.

Other Thoughts: The fan seemed adequate but I had a Noctua NF-F12 to mount. While nearly noiseless, the air flow through the heat exchanger is not very impressive.

I did not use the included paste. I used AC Silver 5.

Rig: i5-4690K (not overclocked) mounted to GA-Z97X-SLI. Windows 8.1.

The case is a Corsair C70 Vengeance. This fan fit within the case with a clearance of about 1/2" to the side cover. While that is too tight to mount a fan on the inside of the cover, the proximity allows for external air to be drafted through the cover holes by the fan as it blows toward the heat exchanger and rear of the case.

I've not had 200 hours of burn in yet to set the AC-5 properly, but here are some closed case temperatures at 74 degree room temperature:

Intel XTU 5.1.0.23 (which does not properly report processor speeds) raised the maximum core temperature to 64C during a 10 minute stress test.

Prime95 26.6 for 20 minutes created a maximum core temperature to 66 C

Prime 95 28.5 (not recommended) raised the maximum core temperature to 84 C

Prime95 26.6 run at the same time as Furmark 1.14.1 for a 20 minute test raised the maximum core temperature to 68 C

I would say that the heat exchanger works fine even with modest airflow. For my use, this was a great deal at $22.

Once the paste sets up, I will try overclocking and posting a follow up.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid HSF

Pros: 1. Easy installation on AMD system
2. Good cooling on par with most other 120mm tower coolers
3. Reasonable price
4. Quiet rubberized fan

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this on a whim when assembling an AM3 system. I noticed it had an integrated AMD clip so no tools would be needed. Installation was a snap and the X4 980 is idling at 33C and hitting 48C running Prime95. This is in a somewhat cramped case with only one intake, one exhaust and one side panel fan. All in all I'm pretty happy with one of the less popular brands and am glad I didn't go the usual Cooler Master 212 Evo route. I feel this one's just as good for my build.
