Great cooler

Comments: The instructions aren't that great, so pay attention to the drawings. Also, I wasn't sure which way to face the fan for the best airflow but that was easy enough to look up online.

great cooler

Pros: This heat sink keeps my system running very cool. I left it running downloading from steam all night and it still keeps my system running at 31c at idle and when I am stress testing (still downloading also) it goes up to 62c I tried prime95 and the intel extreme tuning utility, both with the same result. The fan is so quiet, you will not notice it running. Excellent CPU cooler for the money.

Cons: This thing is HUGE! You will almost certainly have to take your motherboard out of its case to mount it.Some people have complained about the fan blocking the first ram socket but its not an issue with the X58 motherboard I have. The white fan shroud is not as attractive as a black one would have been

Other Thoughts: Intel 960 3.2 ghz OC to 4.01 ghz standard /4.3 ghz turbo
Asus Sabertooth X58 motherboard
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 - 1600 Ram
EVGA 580 GTX 1.5 GB GDDR5

Cool and Quiet

Comments: Pressure mounting system is awesome, however keep in mind there are reports of processors being crushed by too much pressure.

Normally these are people who do 'washer mods' and other things to a system that already gives off an amazing amount of pressure. I gave it some solid turns and didn't push my luck, but it's definitely on there with more contact than any other heat sink I've ever used.

It was between this and the Prolimatech Megahalem. Was a very hard choice to make. Both of these heatsinks are amazing, and in some ways the Megahalem is superior. However for the price on Newegg~ and including a SOLID and effective SILENT fan as part of the package out of the box...?

I made the right choice.

Great Cooler

Pros: Great cooling! Decent mounting system, well made, reasonably quiet. Reasonable price.

Cons: Instructions were a bit weak.

Other Thoughts: I replaced a Scythe Ninja with this cooler on an OC'd i7 920 (3.8GHz) mounted to an ASUS P6T-SE. No clearance problems with either the Mobo, or my case (Antec p180). Idle and full-load temps dropped an average of 17 degrees, and the max temp difference between cores went from 13 degrees to 4. Full-load I'm seeing max temps hitting 82 on my hottest core - and it was hitting 100 with the Scythe. Anyway, I like this better than the Noctua NH-D14 I have in my other system which was MUCH more expensive. It's worth noting that the base-plate was NOT flat, but that hasn't seemed to hurt performance. I coated both base plate and CPU with at thin coat of Arctic Silver, assembled the mount, and as I tightened down the screws (alternating side to side) I would gently rotate the heatsink back and forth to help "smooge" the compound together - and it seems to have worked. I maxed out the "pressure screw" BTW - which also seems to have worked.

Missing a FAN!

Pros: looks nice

Cons: It's HUGE it sticks out like 8 inches from the motherboard I have no idea if ANY case can fit this thing

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't know it says it comes with a fan but it's missing one, trying to get RMA info from newegg right now to fix it

5/ 5

Pros: LOOKS GREAT, WORKS WELL. EASY TO INSTALL. FITS COMFORTABLY IN THE COOLER MASTER SCOUT CASE. YOU CAN EVEN INSTALL DOMINATOR TYPE RAM WITH THIS COOLER. KEEPS TEMPS IN LOW 30'S. I HAVE THE I7-960. FAN IS SUPER QUITE. NO NEED FOR PUSH PULL SETUP.

Cons: PRETTY BIG. MAKE SURE YOUR CASE CAN HANDLE IT. NEEDED TO TAKE THE FAN OFF TO SECURE IT. I WAS A LITTLE TRICKY PUTTING THE FAN BACK ON AS TO NOT BREAK OR BEND ANYTHING.
