Cooler Master GeminII S524 - CPU Cooler with Aluminum Fins and 5 Heatpipes

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent cooler 01/08/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII S524 - CPU Cooler with Aluminum Fins and 5 Heatpipes

Pros: Dropped temps on my A8 significantly while being very quiet. I have the temp control goih so the fan ramps up or slows down when needed.
30 degree idle at 300rpm
55 degree load at 1600rpm

Fits over Ripjaw X with plenty of room to spare.
Easy to install.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Biostar hi-fi A85w
4x4gb Ripjaw X

Plenty of clearance here. Highly recommend.

Pros: It shows video on my screen and works fine with APU dual graphics.

Cons: Lousy performance on this thing. Gets playable framerates on low detail. Not sure if it is the card, or lousy drivers, but the a8-5600k igpu outperforms this by itself.

AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W AD560KWOHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7560D

Pros: Pretty quick. The CPU itself is far more capable of everything I have thrown at it. Overclocks with relative ease, and dual graphics works like a charm. Gaming is extremely good.

Cons: Stock heatsink is lousy. After a few days of seeing high idle temps, I decided to finally go watercooled. I snagged an Antec Kuhler 620 on sale, and it runs much cooler.

Other Thoughts: Paired this up with a 6670 2gb gfx card and fast ram. Handles everything I have thrown at it.
Scores 7.3 on Wei.
