I first was afraid to purchase this, wasn't sure if it'll fit my LGA 1150 socket, but fortunately if fitted perfectly thanks to the Cooler Master universal mount, the cooling system works great, I guess I would have to say it has the perfect cooling system because one side sucks the air and the other blows the air out, making a very convenient constant air flow. If your looking for an affordable CPU cooler to keep and maintain that expensive CPU in a stable condition, then I would recommend that you purchase this.

I searched high and low for a Cooler for my new I7 that would fit in the Cosmos S case without taking the side fan out. This one showed up somewhere, and since it was fairly cheap while appearing to be decent quality, I bought it. It didn't disappoint.
This little thing is built extremely solid. No cheap, second grade parts. The bottom has a mirror surface, it comes with its own Thermal paste, mounting brackets for just about any CPU type, is quiet, and more than gets the job done. My CPU dropped from 55 C (With stock cooler) to an unbelievably low 26-27C (Cores run about 39)! Seriously, I would suggest you buy this product.

As a side note, I chose to use Arctic Silver 5 Thermal paste, instead of the included.

I've now used this for 13 months in my custom built computer. I picked this cooler as a comparison to others made this cooler a little better choice for the money. I keeps my CPU fairly cool even when I tried to max out the system. (The CPU never exceeded 40C) My biggest complaint is this cooler is very BIG size wise. I have a full ATX Tower and this cooler barely fit into the tower when mounted on the CPU/motherboard. Mounting was also a pain and took far longer than it should have. Overall, it's a decent CPU cooler for the price but I'm sure there are better options available now.

I've pretty much been stuck with stock cooling fans since I began building. 9 times out of 10, they go what they need to...but just barely.

The stock fan that came with my AMD 8350 idled at around 40C, sometimes higher, and that's during the winter. Playing games or other high performance tasks would easily bump the temps up to the 70's, almost 80's if the room temp was hot. At times it worried me. I know CPUs are safe to a pretty high temp, but I was worried about the CPUs longevity.

Being too inexperienced with water cooling, I decided I'd buy an aftermarket CPU fan, and in comes the Cooler Master Hyper N520.

To those new at putting new parts in, this fan will look like quite the behemoth. Having two fans, one on each side, and quite some mass to it, you'll need to make sure you have the room in your system. Look at the measurements of the fan online, and then measure how much space and clearance you have. In a full ATX case, it certainly fit, but much larger would be cutting pretty close.

Installation in reality is pretty straight forward, but since this was my first time installing an aftermarket fan, it seemed pretty intimidating. Luckily there are quite a few tutorials online if you can find them (mostly for Intel CPUs though). Basically, if your case doesn't allow you to take both side panels off to access both sides of the motherboard, you will need to take the whole motherboard out, so it can be pretty time consuming, so plan your installation carefully.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT ITSELF:

When I booted my system on, I instantly noticed the difference. It's not completely silent for me, I can still hear it, but compared to the obnoxious sound levels the stock CPU fan ran at, it's a very welcome change.

I bought this item when my processor began overheating in my desktop PC. It was an instant and huge improvement over the "stock" cooler. It has great performance, but its bigger than it looks in the picture, so measure your case before buying.

I had bought a barebones kit from one of the major online computer parts stores, and they had provided me with a cheap CPU cooler. The machine was about two years old, and it had been making increasingly loud buzzing noises on startup and heavy operation. Obviously it was some rotating part, but in a big desktop machine like mine there are at least 4-5 spinning parts that might have contributed.

It got to the point where the machine would just shut down on its own after 5-10 mins. That is what led me to believe it was related to overheating. I downloaded an app that would track the temperatures in the CPU and the Memory, and sure-enough, all 4 cores were spiking to 170'F or more. At the time I did not know much about CPU temperature ranges, but this seemed high, and it seemed to be related to the timing of the computer shutdowns. I took a chance and bought this CPU cooler based on good reviews, and the fact that it was designed to work with my AMD Phenom processor.

When I took it out of the box I was very surprised. This thing is enormous! My old cooler was a little bigger than a golfball, this one is at least the size of a softball!
I have a full-size PC tower, and there was only a couple millimeters of room to spare between the top of the cooler and the edge of my case.

This is something to keep in mind when purchasing. If you have anything less than a full-tower desktop, this cooler will not fit inside your case. It will not fit in any mini-towers, compact PCs, All-in-one PCs or anything like that.
