Pros: 4 heat pipes touching CPU face provide superior cooling for the hottest CPU! Super quiet! Works with most Intel and AMD CPU's!
Cons: Kind of a byotch to install. Lots of extra parts to mix up. Remove main board, install screws, line up the base, thermal paste then mount the fan with rubber grommets for silent operation.
Other Thoughts: Follow instructions closely, don't try to wing it! For hot CPU builds, this is what you need. Cooler CPU's just heat above room temps at idle.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EVGA GTX 970 SSC Backplate ACX 2.0+ Model 100-BP-3973-B9
Pros: A perfect fit and only takes a few minutes to install. Should keep things a few degrees cooler and that will extend product life. Really makes the card feel solid in your hands.
Cons: A shame not all cards in this $300 price range have it as stock item and bolted on already. I got it free and don't mind the assembly.
Other Thoughts: Great item. Worth considering even if it did not come with the unit. Consider it insurance for when you forget to blow out the dust from the clogged heatsink in after a year or two.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price is amazing for the performance. 4 heat pipes with direct contact to the CPU provide great heat dissipation. From a "monstrous" water cooled first generation Core i7 room heater, this is way more compact and has a steady 38c temp and 50c under gaming and video load. Large fan is quiet and pushes more air at lower RPM.
Cons: The heatsink surface contacting the CPU is not mirror polished. Doing so could drop 2-3c, but overall this is insignificant. Had some fuss assembling the fan with those rubber anchors, but assembled fine.
Other Thoughts: It's a tall fan, so tower cases only. Double check small form and ITX cases for clearance. Forget slim systems.READ FULL REVIEW
