I have a Ryzen 7 cpu ...ready installed onto a B450 mortar Titanium..waiting for a CPU cooler to go into my HTPC...an this cpu cooler... i repeat does not work...
So fanx to the time waster that said it works on their AM4...they all liars..
got it after 3 days waiting an its going back tomorrow..
its all one star cos it dont work....wish someone had said this before i saved me my wasted time an effort..
Why dont it work...cos the backplate on AM4 is differnt shape to AM3+
- copper core thus should be OK for medium power/TDP CPUs (spec says 95W but I'd say 65W)
- no push-pin installation thus solid, not likely to come off in transit (e.g. if you ship it, move it, etc.)
- very low footprint, should fit low-height cases and does not overlap RAM/VRM like bigger fans
- quite cheap considering competitive designs (e.g. Noctua at 3x the price)
- PWM like just about all CPU fans today.
The not so good:
- Non-standard fan 92mm, cannot be replaced if it breaks. But cheap?
- Whine at high speed. Don't get this for high-TDP CPUs which are likely to use the fan in high-speed mode.
- Not cheap considering push-pin in 1/2 the price
- You need to install CPU/cooler before you install mainboard into the case.
- If you want to replace CPU you likely need to remove board from the case as the mounting plate will likely fall off.
All in all it is cheap but not sure I will be able to live with the whine. But difficult to remove and replace now, need to take the whole computer apart. Best try to get a 120mm low-profile fan but naturally watch RAM/VRM height
This is a cooler with copper pipes and aluminium fins. I used it to cool a 2400G using it's vega 11 iGPU. This cooler managed it perfectly, idling around 28c, and under stress getting to 52c max.
Really happy with it. I maxed the fan speed to test how loud it is, and it's almost inaudible at max RPM. Great performance for such a cheap cooler.
Silverstone have also added clips to the fan, so if the ender user ever wants to replace the current fan, maybe for an rgb one, it's easily done.
The fitting is your standard AMD clip style, which is easy to fit. It comes with thermal paste (not applied) however I chose to add my own (arctic MX-4, which i would highly recommend)
TL:DR it's a great budget cooler
I've got a non-overclocked i7 6700k, with anything less than the CoolerMaster 212 it jumps alll the way up to more than 90 degrees encoding videos in Premiere and throttles very badly (not even 80% utilisation of each core).
UPDATE: Tried to save it by installing it on what is supposedly it's most intended use purpose, so I tried to put it in an ASrock Deskmini motherboard and it doesn't fit either. What a waste of time.
