3 out of 5 eggs Very Very Large 07/15/2009

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

Pros:

(This is an updated review. I could not seem to edit the old one.)
Keeps my CPU cool. It idles at 27C. Never gets anywhere near anything I'd worry about, but I haven't OCed it.

Cons:

Very long. My side case fan was in the upper left side of the case, so the side of the case would not fit on with this CPU heatsink/fan installed. I actually had to unscrew the side CPU fan, and screw it on to the outside of the case. It looks kinda funky now, but I find it amusing, and the cooling is still great, so I don't mind.

Also very wide. With my motherboard, I was unable to install RAM in the Orange slots closer to the CPU, which are the preferred slots for my processor. That's pretty lame. It's also lame that it will be nigh-unto impossible for me to install extra ram if I ever want to.

Other Thoughts:
