My situation was that I had a Micro-ATX case with a Quad Core, an 8800 GT (The hot hot GPU), two HDD's and a tv tuner smacked right close to the Graphics Card. You can imagine what kind of MESS it made. My temps were 63C on 8800 GT and 50C on the Quad Core, Which is a Phenom 9500. Ambient temperatures were near the 50's and all of it - ON IDLE! My comp shuts off without notice when playing games that use both the CPU and the GPU semi intensive to Intensive.
Now on to the Cooler; this cooler is HUGE. Not too heavy, but it's definitely big. The cooler that I had (Stock), could fit 6 times in this baby. It's only an inch away from the side panel, where I was planning to attach another fan but the performance of this cooler really brings no need for this.
I will say that it's a bit tricky to install. For you AMD users, you'll have to remove the existing retention bracket and install the one that comes with it, and also a supporter at the back of the motherboard. One thing's for sure - READ THE MANUAL. One thing they don't tell you is that you have to flip the Motherboard upside down while the cooler is in place to fasten the back supporter. Definitely tricky to install. I took an example from 3D GAME MAN on his youtube. Definitely helps if you need visual explanation. To top it off they added a nice red LED light inside.Read more ›
Cons: Bad instructions, Showed air flow to be opposite of what it really was (so I had choice of removing heatsink, or taking out fan and reversing it, cost me an hour, I recommend you test the air flow direction before installing if you can). Some of the screws go in clock wise, some counter clock wise, Instructions don't show this well, and threads get messed up trying to screw them in the normal way.
First of all, this cooler is compatible with Socket 775, 1155 & 1366 so you can use it for future builds that support these processors. Second, this thing is as HUGE as everyone says! I thought for sure it would fit in my Antec 900 case without a doubt; more on that challenge later. This cooler does everything it advertises, and does it in a "cool" way, get it ;)
My System: Intel E8600 OC'd Running at 4.0 Ghz Vcore 1.32, 8GB Hyperx DDR2 PC2-6400, Dual 8800 GTS 640MB SLI, Antec 900 Case, BFGTech 680i SLI Nforce Board. FSB at 1600, 1000Watt BFG Power. Windows 7 64-Bit.
The installation was a bit tricky as everyone says, but not out of reach for the novice builder. My temperatures are as follows with all my fans at Maximum... By the way, my TjMax is set at 100c
> CPU Temp: 27C
> Core 0: 40C
> Core 1: 40C
MAXIMUM LOAD @30 Mins using Intel BurnTest (max temps attained, not sustained temps)
> CPU Temp: 62C
> Core 0: 62C
> Core 1: 63C
Caution: Intel BurnTest really puts a load on your CPU
Temperature Utility Used : Speedfan
My Core0 and 1 temps are probably "stuck" at 40c on idle
** I would like to comment by saying that my "real world" temps never get that high, no matter what game I am playing, even on max settings. **
I have an Antec 900 case.Read more ›
So it is an excellent cooler, runs very quiet, the fan does not last a very long time and when it fails you get to disassemble your computer and do it all over again.
I give it a 4 bordering on a 3.5
