XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler LGA1150 Haswell Compatible
  • 800 - 1500 RPM
  • 56.3CFM (Max.)
  • Base Material: H.D.T. (Heat-pipes Direct Touch)
  • Fin Material: Aluminum Alloy

Pros:

-120mm fan is quiet
-Heat pipes directly contact with CPU
-Anti-vibration rubber
-Cheap during Black Friday

Cons:

-I couldn't configure the heatsink the way I wanted on the motherboard. Fits only one way where the exhaust goes towards rear of case. I wanted to direct the exhaust upwards towards top of the case. Not sure if it's due to the motherboard or heatsink design
-Anti-vibration rubber was frustrating to install. Was close to tearing one apart. Instructions weren't clear about it either
-The fan obstructs a ram slot for performance RAM. I had to insert the ram in a slanted position and I'm worried something may break over time due to that. I am using Corsair Vengeance memory with tall heat spreaders. However, I think it would've been fine if I had used standard RAM with low profile heat spreaders

Other Thoughts:

Good CPU cooler
