update to DOA. 5/5/2012 10:30:36 AM

Pros: none

Cons: After the manufacturer response stated that I should contact them using the "special" VIP@antec.com address, I did just that. In a very proffesional and civil email I told them that I had already replaced the heatsink with a different design (PWM fan clip-to-front) and would not be using their replacement policy, since that would just leave me with a superfluous, homeless heatsink.
I invited them to make another arrangements, suggesting that if they paid for the shipping (UPS call-tag, not difficult to arrange at all), I would send it back for a refund in the form of a check or pre-paid debit card. I also stated that I fully understand that, sometimes, a faulty product will make it past QC and that I've bought other Antec products in the past with success and didn't hold any grudges with the company.
They could have responded and told me if those terms were acceptable or if they would refund it as long as I paid the shipping costs, but they didn't respond at all.

Overall Review: Basicly the "Manufacturers Response" is a sham. They only post it to look good to the people reading the reviews, but have no intention of actually following through with the correspondence.
I would have understood if they had responded and told me that they could only do this or that in accordance with their return policies. After all, they're a business and their goal is to make profit and minimize loss as much as possible, but it's been 3 weeks and I still haven't got a response.

Clearly, they just don't care.

The "Manufacturers Response" was just a tool to maintain an *image* of service, nothing more, and with no intent to actually improve service or relations.

Pros: Never got to use it.

Cons: No intel installation kit. I couldn't get it in because there were two AMD install kits, but no intel and no mini wrench and nothing besides the thermal glue and AMD hook-ups. I dont want an RMA bc I just need the intel install kit.

Kuhler w/ mini lga 1155 z68 is a no, no. 2/11/2012 12:53:38 AM

Pros: The heat sink is what it expected it to be, cooler.

Cons: Have an ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard. Can't just place kuhler brackets at bottom of motherboard as instructed. One bracket I had to modify in order to fit properly. Was easy with the right tools, but would be impossible without. Not sure if any non stock heat sink would be compatible with this particular motherboard so I can't give it a minus eggs for that.

Overall Review: If you are using an lga 1155 motherboard, 1156 is same for no stock heat sink. My asus mini lga 1155 z68 was just not expecting bracket area to be occupied. If you own any asus z68 lga 1155 mobos check the back make sure area is not occupied.

Update 12/25/2011 6:32:03 AM

Pros: Just an update on my earlier review now that I've had this installed for a while and my AS 5 has cured. Idle temps are down to 33c and after several hours of World of Warcraft (a very CPU heavy game) temps sit around 45c. Before this cooler I sat at 45c idle and 56c + after an hour or two of gaming.

Cons: None

AM3 Install 12/9/2011 2:04:50 PM

Pros: well built product, looks sweet, came with brackets for most cpu's. No problems with clearing the first memory DIMM on my Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 board, and it fit like a dream in my InWin Dragon Rider. I'll update later after I let the AS 5 cure.

Cons: Intructions, no screws to attatch the mounting brackets to the cooler. The size could be an issue in some cases, but not in my Dragon Rider. It even clears the 200mm fan on the side panel. Had to knock an egg of for the missing screws, and the poor instructions.

Overall Review: Just got this cooler in earlier today, after reading the reviews it looked like an excellent choice for my 1055T AM3 Phenom II x6. The other reviews are right the instructions are horrid at best, but it's not too difficult to install.

On AM3 boards you have to reuse your stock backplate, remove the stock cooler mounting bracket and toss it. attatch the AM2 brackets to the Kuhler box. With the MoBo out of the case apply AS 5 or your preffered thermal paste as per the instructions. For the top two mounting points use the AND screws provided along with two of the washers from the Intell screw set. For the bottom two screws I reused 2 of the screws from my stock cooler mount. This was the only was I was able to obain a hold that felt secure enough. For this cooler I think it is especially important to "tint" the heatsink with your thermal paste as the surface is fairly uneven.

Excellent 12/7/2011 5:22:37 PM

Pros: Lowered my Phenom II x4 CPU core temp by 15 to 20 degrees C over the stock cooler. And it is sooooo much quieter. I love it already.

Cons: Very big, not for every case/mobo. Also the mounting hardware and instructions leave a lot to be desired (the instructions are basically non-existant!). Anyone with a bit of mechanical know-how should be able to figure it out though.

Pros: Great cooling and rather easy install. Overall quality product as usual from antec.

Cons: This was a bit of an oversite on my part but i have to bring it up. The memory i ordered was to tall to fit under this thing. Corsair vengeance 16 gig blue kit. How i fix it was not to bad. On the side of the memory i manually cut 3 of the heatsink fins away from the copper pipe and removed them. It now fits perfectly and looks as if it were stock. Just watch your clearances but for most people this is an easy mod to accomplish. All you need are small needle nose, scissors and or tin snips and a pair of dykes.

Overall Review: None its a great product but if the engineers at antec read this please for future reference keep in mind a performance cooler NEEDS more clearance on the memory side with all these new fandango heat spreaders. :)

Pros: Excellent cooler for AMD CPU's to include those that like to over clock. It really looks nice in my case and does what is was design for exceptionally well.

Cons: I have a full ATX board, and failed to measure the clearance prior to ordering the cooler. I had to remove bay #1 stick of ram to allow appropriate clearance for the cooler.

Overall Review: As usual Newegg's service and support is in my opinion second to none. I have used Newegg for some time now and I have never been disappointed.
