  • 50 - 61 CFM
  • Aluminum & Copper

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing 10/18/2012

This review is from: CORSAIR CAFA50 120mm CPU Cooler

Pros:

-I have yet to see my CPU temp get above 56 C, and that was while running Prime 95.
-With a rebate it was 10 dollars. Super cheap but high quality.
-Pretty easy install, even though Intel likes to make fan installs difficult
-Large fan size makes it really quiet. No need for the speed limiter, it's much quieter than my PSU and video card fans.

Cons:

None so far!

Other Thoughts:

This is an very large cooler so check if it will fit in your case before you buy it. I have a monster size case and it fit in mine with plenty of clearance, but if you have a small case or a MicroATX mobo, you may run into issues with it getting in the way of your opposite case side or RAM slots.

I have been using this cooler since July. I'm running a Core i5-3570k with BIOS on high performance settings. This is the best $10 I have ever invested in my computer. (which I am super protective of)
