Passive CPU Cooling? 11/22/2011
This review is from: Scythe SCMG-3000 120mm Heat Pipe CPU Cooler
Large heat sink with 6 double ended heat pipes really work efficiently.
Relatively easy install. Light weight for it's size. also it can be mounted in horizontal air flow or vertical air flow.
Finn edges could be dressed a little better. They bend easy with average handling. (slight bends not damaging bends).
only worth a mention. Could use a better mount system for amd.
If you're case does not have a hole cut in the motherboard tray, you will have to remove the motherboard to install.
I would have taken an egg off, but this cooler is sitting on a amd x2 260 (without the fan)! The idle temps are 80-F / 27-C home server on 24-7 even under load never saw temps above 106-F. I have this mounted in vertical air flow orientation (fan would blow up and out case) the width of this unit hangs over the first ram slot (msi 790fx-gd70 mb) the lowest finns are just over .5 inch clearance to the top of the ram (standard size no heat sinks). I was able to install the ram in the first slot with the cooler in place.
