5 out of 5 eggs Passive CPU Cooling? 11/22/2011

This review is from: Scythe SCMG-3000 120mm Heat Pipe CPU Cooler

Pros:

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.

Cons:

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.

Other Thoughts:

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.
