NZXT Respire T20 3/26/2014 1:41:24 AM

Pros: Works well for the money.

Cons: No mounts for second fan, so no push pull.

The fan is only a 3 pin. Don't think that this means there is no controlling fan speed, just that your choices of speed are limited as opposed to a four pin fan.

Overall Review: AMD USERS: The exhaust will be going out of the TOP of the case.
If you don't have top exhaust on your case, cooler master hyper 212 plus/evo is a good alternative.

Intel users: The exhaust going out of the back.

Nice cooler, SOME flaws 2/20/2014 12:25:04 PM

Pros: This thing keeps my overclocked 4.2ghz i5 3570k at about 30C - 33C on idle. Its been YEARS since ive owned an Intel, and from what I understand these temps are great. I have been using AMD since 939 and they just run cooler in general, so I wasnt sure, but this thing is big, beautiful, and matches everything in my system. Cools great, and the voltage regulator sure does work, i used it as an extension not paying attention and it kept my fans at 1200 RPM, which let my chip run about 4C hotter, so i took off the regulator and it spins at 1800 rpm as advertised and is still fairly quiet.

Cons: Mounting system. Its MUCH easier than the nasty water cooler I had, but Its like tightening the valve cover on a motor, you have to cross tighten or its no good, and I hate that.

This thing will WOBBLE (or vibrate). Make sure you have it tightened down really well, I feel I should not have to tighten it as much as I did, but its nice and stable (for now), I will check this in a day or 2 to see if it needs readjusting.

Overall Review: Besides the wobbling this thing is a beauty and cools well. I like nzxt products (phantom 410, all black-white nzxt fans (one has a ball bearing rattling though, but def not worth paying for RMA) and this cooler, my machine is a beauty

-Cut my CPU temp. more then 50%

Cons: The guard that holds the heat sink down to the cpu didnt fit the screws perfect. But that could have also been my mistake.

Overall Review: Great CPU fan for the price.

NEVER AGAIN WITH AMD! 12/5/2013 5:43:41 PM

Pros: Keeps under 120F!
Very convenient, if you have intel..

Cons: Im really sorry, but if you have this, have low profile RAM, or have to force my RAM in like I did...Im not satisfied. When I contacted NZXT Tech Support, I wish they would of said something about the RAM...I now bascially wasted $30 on something that almost has my RAM broken...Why would you make this sideways, facing up towards the roof of a case? REALLY?! IT BLOCKS EVERYTHING!!!

Poor design 11/21/2013 7:26:43 PM

Pros: Low price.
Large fan.
It should work great once I get it installed.

Cons: For an AMD motherboard, this will only mount blowing vertically. I bought this to go with MSI's FM2-A85XA-G65 but I verified this was the case for the top 12 most reviewed AMD motherboards on Newegg. I bought this for a friend who is trying to save money so we are using a perfectly good case that is ~5 years old. It does not have a vent on the top of the case. Additionally, this configuration practically guarantees it will block you memory ports, requiring you to remove the heat sink before upgrading your memory.

I have the Xigmatek Gaia and the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and both of these allowed me to mount them facing backward. I may have even had the option to do either. Get some better engineers NZXT.

Another downside is it does not come with the mounts to attach a second fan. For the cost of 2 more small pieces of plastic, this seem like it should be standard.

Overall Review: I am probably going to swap this in one of my other builds that does have a top vent rather than go through the trouble of returning it. Not looking forward to the extra work.

Pros: Excellent cooling, looks great, nearly perfect.

Cons: I installed this in a NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black SECC Steel with the plastic window.

It barely fits in the case from the same company, it's such a tight fit it actually scratches the window. Thanks NZXT.
