The old LED was near impossible to install onto the AMD clips and even more difficult to remove. I thought I would destroy my motherboard taking it off. The be Quiet!, on the other hand, has the lever-type mounting that you simply flip over to lock and back to release. NEVER get a unit that just clips on both sides.
The El Cheapo cooler actually ran idle in Windows 10 at 57 Celsius in an air conditioned room. It was a 3-pin and ran from about 1700 to 2100 rpm. running Unigine Heaven benchmark, it reached 94 Celsius! Not as bad as the 99 Celsius it had reached running Prime95 before I stopped the test. For you non-converters, this is boiling water temperature!
So then I installed the be Quiet! after cursing the El Cheapo one more time and the results were a bit better:
Idle temps in Windows were a cool 34 C and the fan was below 1300 rpm. Even running the same Heaven benchmark, it peaked at 56 C, a full 38 Celsius (100 Fahrenheit) difference. It was still very quiet, fan speed remaining below El Cheapo.
I would have given 5 stars but the instructions, though in a lot of languages, was very poor. It does not explain how to orient the heat sink, how to orient the clip, or how to place the fan or how to attach it. It simply tells you to put the clip on, mount it to the CPU and attach the fan. These are not instructions. It is necessary to orient the heat sink properly onto the CPU. If you are using a tower case, this should be with the logo text reading right side up. If you look at the fins, one side is higher from the motherboard than the other side. This should be facing up in the case because the fan must go on the taller side.
Not only this, but the clamp that you put on the base MUST be facing the proper way. It has to inserted with the lever on the top side an the plain notched piece must be on the lower side. IF you don't do this, the fan will not fit because it will hit the lever.
Since they don't explain how the two clips actually mount the fan, I will try to facilitate. Face the "pretty" side of the fan away from the heat sink and hook the spring clip to the holes in the very outer part of the fan mounting holes. The little grip tab on the clip will face outward from the heat sink. Now the thin clip must go between the fins of the heat sink and hook over the wide channel in the middle of the heat sink. The top of the fan frame should be flush with the top of the heat sink. Pull the tabs of the clips upwards (in a tower) so the hook into the channel. I'll provide photos for more detail.
In the picture I included you can see where the metal bracket is suppose to go under the plastic hook. In the position it is in is the lowest it will go, when ever you tight it(push the lever down) it raises up another 3/8 of an inch.
This cooler looks awesome and works great so far.
Now the Cons
Although it may look awesome the install was a total joke. I have installed hundreds of cpu cooling fan without the headaches I had of this one. First the instruction manual is a joke and isn't helpful in the least. I had to go on youtube to watch their video to even get a basic idea but that still was a joke and only shows 1 Intel installation and 1 AMD installation but not for each different socket type, And to find a better set of instructions on the internet is like pulling teeth. Next Be sure you tape your back plate on or else the problems arise even farther. The little washers that they provide and need to be installed for AMD were a nightmare to keep in place. Don't forget going by the video and instruction manual you need the thin washers and then the riser spacers together which I couldn't understand why they didn't just make the riser spacers that extra length to compensate for the washers to begin with. Well so I thought until I got to the point where I had just finished installing everything, Then noticed the whole unit just wiggled and moved around on the processor with ease. So I then had to remove everything to remove the thin washers. Then you have the long mounting screws that for the life of me wouldn't screw tight no matter whats done. You will need a shorter screw driver with a proper sized phillips tip or else they will strip out easily. Even then it's bound the mounting hardware will still be loose. The aluminum mounting hardware screwed down tight then after all this is when I realized it's better to remove the thin washers to keep a proper tight fit to sit the shroud down onto the processor properly or else it just wiggles all over the place.
At first glance of taking this CPU Cooler out of the box I was going to purchase another one for an AM4 system I just built but now after this crazy nightmare of an install I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy.

Ich habe einen PC mit einer INTEL Core i7-8700k CPU für die Foto- und Video-Bearbeitung zusammengestellt, und da wollte ich einen möglichst leisen Lüfter. Ich wollte auch nicht gleich zu viel Geld ausgeben.
Der Lüfter ist sehr einfach zu installieren. Ich habe zuerst die Plastikabdeckung entfernt, damit wird die Unterseite frei, die schon mit einer Wärmeleitpaste versehen ist. Dann habe ich die Stifte ins Mainboard hineingedrückt. Das ist etwas fummelig, wenn das Mainboard nicht auf einer festeren Unterlage liegt. Am Schluss habe ich noch den Lüfter am Mainboard angeschlossen.
Der Kühler ist sehr kompakt, er verdeckt keine RAM-Slots.
Der Lüfter sieht sehr edel aus und passt zu meinem Mainboard (grau).
Die Temperaturen im Idle und beim Rendering der Videos bleiben im Rahmen. Ob es für leichtes übertakten reicht, muss ich noch testen, wahrscheinlich werde ich aber irgendwann mehr Geld ausgeben müssen.
Da ich aber keinen PC mit >6 Lüftern (oder noch schlimmer einer Wasserpumpe) will, werde ich mir das noch überlegen. Denn ich will ab und zu Videos am PC drehen und dann nicht die Lüftergeräusche (oder Pumpgeräusche) mit aufnehmen.
Ich kann den Lüfter definitiv empfehlen, wenn man nicht gleich übertakten will. Die Kühlleistung mit 12 Watt reicht aus, um eine INTEL Core i7-8700k CPU zu kühlen, es ist aber wirklich hart an der Grenze, die CPU kommt bei längerem Rendern schon ab und zu knapp über die 80 Grad.

But honestly, this will probably leave you swearing and cursing and wondering if it is actually mounted securely. For that reason I cannot recommend it. For AM4 you will probably be better of staying stock or going for an AIO if you can justify the cost/performance. The Noctua NH-L9a is ok as the down blower style helps VRM cooling. But then the AMD stock coolers are good anyway.
For a larger air cooler, the Hyper 212 is still a hell of a good cooler in the 120mm fan size range. If it will fit in your case I would recommend it over this anyday, and unless you need serious cooling it will suit most people.
Back to the cooler now and for the price I have to say its great.
I like the designs of Be Quiet coolers, they're simple, unfussy and just look nice.
The cooler is 124.8mm tall, 97mm wide and 81.8 long. So quite compact, just make sure your case can accommodate the height as it might hit the side panel. It uses a 92mm pure wings 2 fan, which again looks great and I really like the silver, black and copper colour scheme. Its just a nice looking budget cooler.
Installation was very simple and straight forward, I would say that I am a decent PC builder and I found installing the cooler very easy. Saying that even a first time builder should be okay with this. There is an included manual if you get stuck, but more than likely you shouldn't.
Performance was solid, I used it with an i5 6600k and it worked great, It was really quiet and managed to keep temps low, even whilst gaming at 1440p. I got temps of 33c at idle and 57c under gaming load, so quite impressive. Bare in mind that the CPU was running stock frequencies at the time. The noise was pretty much none at all, the fans I had in the PC were louder. So its very quiet, even under a full gaming load.
Aluminium heat pipes and top cover
Three 6mm heat pipes
92mm height adjustable fan
2000rpm fan speed
Airflow (cfm) 35.14
Air pressure (mm/H2O) 1.67
4 pin connector
358g incl fan
Overall I have to say that this is the best budget cooler I've ever used and I can suggest that you look at one for a budget PC build.
My biggest complaint is that the mounting kit uses them frustrating push pins. They are very irritating but not a huge problem since you rarely remount the heatsink.
The fan clips also are not secured to the fan. You just hook them on and hope they stay into place when mounting to the heatsink. They would often slip when trying to attach the fan onto the heatsink, took me several attempts to attach the fan.
Aside from that, I am impressed with this cooler. This particular model is ideal for those who want something better than a stock cooler without emptying your wallet.
