3 out of 5 eggs Effective but many drawbacks 09/05/2008

This review is from: XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler I5 775 AMD compatible

Pros:

Effective once installed.

Cons:

This is a tall heatsink. It would not fit into my Antec p182 case, but it fits into a SONATA III case. I am not a fan of the pushpin install method and prefer using screws. After purchasing the backing plate, it was much easier to secure it to the motherboard. The fan installation is rather flimsy and you may bend some of the fins installing it, or worse you could tear some of the rubber screws if you are not careful.

Other Thoughts:

Once properly installed, it effectively does the job and is quiet doing it, however, you must enjoy using pushpins to install it and I personally find them irritating and annoying to install. Invest in the backplate!
