Superb good for FX processors 02/20/2014
Cools very well. Option to really crank it up with fan controller. Looks cool. I drilled a hole in the empty space on my MB's face-plate and the cord reaches it just fine and I don't have to open the case to adjust it. I am a big system fan guy and for me there is room for 3 fans using this cooler. I love the V-shape.
Fan is loud when you run it at max. I only run it at max for bench-marking and don't have any overheating issues on the much quieter, slower speed so it works for me.
Take your motherboard out to install this cooler. It is too easy to apply pressure unevenly during installation which can cause improper spreading of the thermal paste. The die size of an AMD processor is indicated in the picture on the box it came in. I looked online for a picture of an uncapped FX processor and finally found a fuzzy one. I was going to actually call AMD to ask what the die size is when I saw the picture on my FX-6100's box. The middle white part of the picture matched up with the uncapped picture I found online. The die size for an FX processor is smaller than the cap by a noticeable margin so even if it doesn't entirely cover the cap, the die is being cooled properly. The other AMD processor series have different die sizes and may/may not have the die covered completely by this cooler.
