This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes
Pros: Decreased my idle temps by 8C
Decreased my load temps by 15C
using Q8200 OCed to 3.01.
Some people say the fans are noisy. I disagree. First time it was fired up, I had to check to make sure the fans were running. At any rate, they are much quieter than the stock intel cooler.
Installation was not bad. I agree with others, a third hand makes it easier but not necessary.
Cons: So why only 4 stars?
1. Because the instructions are laughable. Cool Master should be embarrassed. The instructions rely heavily on pictures and not verbiage. However the pictures are in about 1.5"x1.5"... very small.
2. Three pins power connection. It should be four.
Other Thoughts: Fits my NZXT Alpha perfectly. Fans & Heatsink line up perfectly with the rear exhaust. The case side fan fits perfectly under the Fans & Heatsink.READ FULL REVIEW

Performance - High

Other Thoughts: Not sure why others are having a difficult time overclocking. I have it OC with GPU Clock = 765MHz and Memory Clock = 1125MHz. CCC 3D Application Settings: All settings on highest quality. Also enabled Triple buffering. BFBC2 runs great!READ FULL REVIEW
