This review is from: CRYORIG M9i Mini Tower Cooler for Intel CPU
Pros: Looks cool and is very quiet.
Cons: Dropped temperatures 5-10 degrees F. Hopefully as the thermal paste settles the temps will drop, otherwise this was not worth the cost or the effort to install.
It was much harder to install than it appears. The hexagon pillars did not lock so I had to keep one hand under the board while tightening.
Other Thoughts: It is not the fault of the fan but this just barely fits on a EVGA z97 FTW. I had to point the fan forward towards the RAM slots.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast and smooth performance. When needed it will ramp up to a bit over 4Ghz, but for non-games it hovers around 800 - 1400 Mhz and runs everything just fine.
Runs very cool on the stock heat-sink.
When it ramps up to 4Ghz, the chip never goes above 125 F.
When it is idling(800 Mhz) it hovers around 90-93 F.
Yes, with the stock heat-sink.
The fan on the heat-sink is small and quiet.
Cons: It doesn't make me sandwiches.
Other Thoughts: I don't know how the embedded graphics are since I use a real video card but this processor is screaming fast and runs cool.
What more do you need?
Pros: Quiet, lowered the temp on my CPU and mobo by around 10 degrees
Cons: The led lights are a little annoying
Other Thoughts: nearly perfectREAD FULL REVIEW
