There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I replaced a very dated Thermalright (XP-120) I popped in there randomly one day because I was constantly filling the water in the prior loop, and that gets old in an H20-in-a-box set up. That was installed a year ago so the TIM could have gotten old and it's just time to replace it, but the i5 4690K was running about 34C without letting it idle (no EIST resting down to 1 gigglehurts or whatever). I've been using IC Diamond and a year is about the time to redo the TIM no matter what, so I figured it's time to try a new cooler if I'm taking it all down again. I put this on 2 nights ago using Grizzly TIM and it's 13C right now, all cores. I'll leave the stress testing and analytical data up to reviewers that get paid, but I cranked this up the way I know how and haven't seen above 40C on any tests I'd put my name on. Changing from IC diamond to Grizzly could be 2C here and there, so this is for sure a good cooler. Compared to a Noctua? Again, I'm no longer ripping stuff apart to compare, but it is doing well compared to those others...and it's not brown.
The install is very typical, not hard. It's just like any other HS/F install I've done for over 20 years. Backplate install, stand-offs, front plate mount, put the goo on, get the hold down for the HS itself, use the VERY cool included screwdriver, twist the unit around as you snug it down, done. It's 15 minutes at best if you've done this before. For the first timer, this might be a big unit to manipulate around and could be juggling mechanical abilities. However, this is a very typical install process for an after market cooler...it's just stinking big compared to a slim tower with the same install process.
The fan is overly large for a reason: It's using a bit of air to use both sides of the top plate and the bottom plate too. These are often overlooked as others blow through the middle only and not using all the fin's surface areas available. You have the room (you're buying something called "Macho" afterall) and the fan doesn't get in the way. It's no larger than the nubs at the end of the heat pipes, so use that space as best you can...thus a big fan. If you want to put a 120 on it, put a 120 on it...it's a waste of utilizing physics though...you'll just blow through the middle of the fins.
The huge con is the stupid springs that hold the fan on. Install the fan early, you'll knock it off 12 times. Install it later, you're building a ship in a bottle. I love positive retention and if they had positive retention I might really give this a rare 5-star. Then there's the Anti Vibe pads that have ZERO stick to them. I've stripped this thing down 6 times just to get those things back out. Once built and one falls off, you're not shaking them out or the fan will fall off because of the stupid weak springs! They only get very little to stick to and they don't do it well; I'd like to see "3M" on the peel-off tape or don't include them at all. The bottom pair (CPU side) don't even touch much so must be there only for the Silent PC crowd...and this isn't going in a slim desktop HTPC.
I have mine oriented in an mATX with the jaunt to the rear of the case, fan at the memory. The fan frame will touch the memory closest and perhaps tilt it just a smidge. Asus suggests I'm in the wrong slots anyway, moved them back to A2/B2 and we're clear. Con? Up to you and how you feel about being in weird memory slots, I personally feel I should be in A1/B1 and don't mind a fan frame touching memory.
This is again a 4690K in socket 1150. There is a mystery piece in the kit that says "1151" on it and as another stated, that goes ON the CPU before you clamp the CPU retention device down, it's not in the instructions....and it's dumb. I didn't need it, don't understand why 1151 would need it, It's nowhere in the instructions, you can use it if you feel like you want to, but it's an anti-lawyer device. After the retention device, Intel and your motherboard maker are free of litigation. It's made of clear plastic, the retention clamp is made of steel, so which is going to bend first if you hamfist the install? The plastic piece will break. You put it before the clamp, if it breaks there's no one but you to blame. I tried for an hour and it just continually over-strained the clamping force of the CPU specs each and every time. I wouldn't use it, I don't, I'm typing from this machine, and it's not in the instructions for a reason IMO. That leads ownership back to you if you overload the socket and not them.
The only other minor con is a plus: Thermalright has been around since 2001 and are proven names in cooling. ThermalTake are not these people and are copy cats. Copy cats take all that R&D and just make something close enough but cheaper. ThermalTake is really up there with the big names, you just don't know it from the knockoffs.
Summary: It's almost a great cooler for $50 or so. One star reviews really bug me and I picture a monkey gnawing on a football to make it a hat. That's not how it works and most people find this install typical. Yet some also think the arrows on the OEM coolers are the way you turn them to put them ON (that way to take them OFF). Fix the stupid springs for an actual Rev. C and you're on to a 5-star cooler.
UPDATE: 19SEPT2018 - 4-star to 3-star; I simply can't take the clips any more. Adjusted the fan retention clips and they hold really well, then I move the computer to clean it or whatever, the fan falls off. Clip it back on, set the computer upright, the fan falls off. Be very very gentle, slooowly move the case into it's place, creep the case panel back on...and it's schrodinger's cat. Is it on? It's not. It's a good Heatsink design because I've been passively cooling my CPU since this review was written. The clips are just pure junk and the fan is sitting on video card kinda giving it a breeze.
I'm an electrical engineer, not a mechanical in any way...but it's obvious, If you have the fan clip to the heat sink then you have something much better. This retention is from the heat sink to the fan. There's zero locking mechanism. The bends in the wire are using friction to stay in the fan screw-mount holes and they just pop out. You can get 100% fan lock and 100% fin lock by thinking 180-degrees...look at a Noctua.
I've tried zipties and they bend stuff if they're too tight and rattle if too loose (the fan doesn't shake perhaps, but I do have a couple 10K drives in there still). String works, but it looks like a toddler did THAT install. Ok, Fishing line. Let's try fishing line. Yes! Can't see anything, it's on...but it's 20lb fishing line! I know it's there, it's hokey, and I finally swapped the entire thing about for a Noctua NH-U12S which all around much smaller, is $10 more, and THE FAN STAYS ON the darn thing. I'm still sticking with my prior thoughts...it's good but close to greatness from a very bad minor flaw. It'd be great for passive cooling but if you want to put the fan on...ugh, good luck. I could go full Bill Burr on these fan clips. Fire the person that gave the green light on these stupid clips. They only work in theory. In use, you're screwed. Things ship, they get kicked around, tossed, and one wayward bit of bend...they're useless.
Like an Armani suit and a horrible set of shoe laces that just ruin the entire work of art.
I'm keeping it and will use it for something I need passively cooled. The 54W TDP Haswell Pentium G3420 perhaps
All said, fantastic cooling at a great price, but if your mobo has a rear shroud it may not fit.
The quality seems decent and I’d give it an 8/10 for quality. Mounting the cooler wasn’t too much of a hassle but it wasn’t the easiest either. At least Thermalright included a long screwdriver.
Sadly the w3690 needed too much voltage to do anything over 4.3ghz, so I wasn’t able to push it as far as I wanted to. I recommend the x5690 instead. I bought an x5690 a couple years ago and it hit 4.5ghz without breaking a sweat.

Yet usefully cheaper than the big names - Noctua, BeQuiet etc.
There were several versions - this being Rev. B, so be sure you're seeing the review of the right one.
I have two side by side cooling Xeon E5 130W cpus overdriven to 140-145W each.
At this load, the fans are audible, but quiet and cpu temperatures are well controlled.Socket 2011 installation is simple, though I was nervous about tightening the crossbar over the cooling block all the way. Don't worry - the retaining bars will bend/flex to tension the cooler onto the socket.
The 140mm fan is wider than the hetsink, so its cage has two sides cut away - you can choose to have the fan either no higher than but wider than the heatsink, or no wider than, but higher than the heatsink.
Recommended - deserves to be more used and better known
