Good Cooler, Bad Ethics. 10/27/2009
Excellent cooler if your motherboard is large enough to support it. The trick is to apply a line of heatsink compound to each copper heatpipe and then apply the heatsink on the CPU. Also note you can't magically slap this cooler on a CPU in a closed box and expect temperatures to magically drop. This cooler removes heat from the CPU and dumps it into its immediate environment (inside the case). Unless you also have good ventillation of that case to remove all that heat build up, a stock Intel CPU cooler will perfrom just as well as this.
If you are buying this cooler expecting to pay the "after-mail-in rebate" price, then don't. I bought this cooler back in May, also with a rebate. The form states wait 16-18 weeks to inquire about the rebate if you don't get it. Flash forward to October, I tried to contact them about my rebate. At first they denied they ever received it. I have bought may good deals on Newegg and done countless rebates, and never once have I been told the post office lost my mail. This would be the first. They asked me to re-fax the documentation (luckily I did make copies). I duely faxed them the required documents and got a sucessful confirmation from my fax machine. Silence. A couple of days later, I asked them about my rebate again. They claim they never received the fax. I faxed it again. I inquire about my rebate again, and then told again they never received the fax. I scanned all my documents and emailed them. There's no denying that now. Haven't heard anything since. Now they just ignore me.
Luckily, Newegg came through. They never fail to impress me with their customer service. I contacted Newegg about it, and without asking a single question, they credited me my rebate to my account. Kudos to Newegg. Newegg should not be dealing with a company of that kind of business ethics. I sure will be bringing this up the chain. The BBB will definitely hear about this. And I have in the past reported fraudulent rebates to my state's District Attorney (which did become a class action lawsuit). We'll see.
