Pros: Efficient and compact design with HEPA donut in the center.
Shipping was incredibly fast!
Makes me wish other Newegg offerings shipped so punctually.
Overall Review: I would recommend
Pros: Looks like a mix between a high rise and a '50s Cadillac grill. Keeps my e8500 cpu under 50 C at load and 40 idle. Blows air right to rear exhaust fan.
Cons: Not a great improvement over the stock cooler + arctic silver at normal clock speeds. Hard to get in: big hands plus narrow space equals many woes. Intel heatsinks in general are annoying to 'snap in' as you feel like youll break the mobo, but this was about 10x harder for me to put on.
Overall Review: Im happy with this purchase at this price despite the swearing and wall-punching it put me through during installation
