Big and Ugly 8/1/2020 11:34:59 AM

Pros: I bought this because it was big and ugly and looks industrial. Its not the best cpu cooler but its in the top tiers. Idles on stock 3800x at 35c and goes up to 79c on cinebench with artic silver.
Sliding fans were actually useful in assembly.

Cons: Priced high

Overall Review: Its good its not the best. But more than enough

A great cooler for the price 7/4/2020 9:48:23 PM

Pros: It has one job.
It performs this job aplomb.
My CPU speeds do not exceed 60 under maximum duress.
The fans easily lift to acomodate memory and VRM sinks but it was unnecessary for me.

-AMD FX-9590 Vishera 8-Core 4.7 GHz Socket AM3+ 220W FD9590FHHKWOF Desktop Processor - Black Edition
-GIGABYTE GA-990FX-Gaming AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Cons: NONE for me.

It might be loud. I don't know as it is in another room.

Overall Review: This thing is beast.

Great Cooler!! 7/2/2020 9:18:17 AM

Pros: It Works my temps were running 84C+ the cooler without the room AC dropped temps to 35 to 60c depending on what programs are in use. I have all four banks of Trident z neo installed. This item covers all ram slots. The plus is the fans are not clipped on the side and slide up so you can adjust as needed. Make sure you have a large case EATX size case *****

Cons: BIG !!!!!, NO RGB check out the YouTube review!!

Overall Review: The cooler excels for me because it fits over the DDR4 slots and can adjust. If you are and RGB must see lights on all my slots kind of person then reconsider. This unit is large similar in size to Notua D15. The cooling works however if your looking for 20c temps no , but realistic more realistic 30 - 60c chipset temps , processor temps 29-45c down from 69-85C. I’m pleased
and this product worked for me rating four stars would have been five but no RGB and size covers slots.

Wow 5/24/2020 1:41:41 PM

Overall Review: Amazing cooling. Watch the dimensions! It covers my RAM, but clears it without issue. I would also suggest a strong motherboard to hold it if you tend to move often since it does have some significant weight to it.

There’s plenty of room in my setup:
-G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series
-MSI X570-A PRO Motherboard
-EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
-Phanteks Enthoo Pro TG

Very good 3/20/2020 3:40:26 AM

Pros: I have a Ryzen 5 2600x overclocked at 4.2 Ghz and this thing does work, really good thermals Ive been getting ratings of 42 degrees C under work from video games like Tarkov, Mordhau, and Arma 3 (which are really CPU and ram stressful), but on just regular load I'm getting anywhere between 30 to 32 degrees C.
The fans are also detachable for easy ram installation.

Cons: They don't have the dimensions written down in the description this thing is massive.
It's about 4 to 6 inches tall off the CPU and is roughly 4 to 5 inches wide.
The steel plate on the top of the cooler had about a .015" height which was just tall enough that I couldn't fit my tempered glass panel on. (I cheated though I work in a metal fab so I plain milled off the top with bridgeport series 2 lol)

Overall Review: Really well put together and you can't beat that price..

A disappointing re-entry for Corsair 3/8/2020 5:52:17 PM

Pros: Innovative design.

Cons: Some questionable design choices, and quality control.

Overall Review: When I received the cooler I immediately noticed an odd application of the pre-applied thermal paste. After wiping it off, one of the heat pipes was raised considerably, keeping most of the heat pipes from making contact with the processor. With that, I still wanted to see if the cooler could still make enough contact to work. Unfortunately, one of the screws on the bracket snapped off halfway through the installation. In summary, while I like the design of the fan mounts, going with an exposed heat pipe design seems archaic for 2020. But, what keeps this cooler from competing with well-established companies such as Noctua, is having just four heat pipes with 120mm fans, and still being an overall larger cooler.

As Expected 2/27/2020 9:01:02 AM

Pros: Easy install. Great Quality. Powerful Fans.

Cons: I know it didn't claim to have, but some LEDs would have been nice. Couldn't take away an egg though.

Overall Review: Trying to convert everything to Corsair. Would buy again, just wish there we LEDs
