  1. I`m going to start with the things I didn`t like.The instructions suck. They tell you to put thermal paste on your CPU before mounting the bracket that goes behind the motherboard. Due to the vague illustrations, I did not realize it needed a bracket behind the motherboard, when I was skimming the instructions. Simply put, I ended up having to put thermal paste on it twice because it`s impossible to take a motherboard out of your case, attach the mounting bracket and put the motherboard back in place without contaminating the thermal paste. Even a single finger print or eye lash or piece of dust is enough to contaminate it and have an impact on the performance of your heat sink.Another thing I didn`t like was the tool used for tightening on the nuts for the bracket. I tried using it but ended up using a wrench instead.Finally, I find the heat sink isn`t exactly what I`d call secure. Even after tightening it down and making sure I had everything properly lined up, the whole thing will still twist a little bit. It`s noticeable when you`re trying to re-attach the fan.I`ve seen other reviews saying they ended up with mounting parts that were defective. Fortunately, I did not have this problem.What do I recommend buying before attempting this?It comes with its own thermal paste but you could always buy better. I went with some Arctic Silver 5, like most people. You`ll also want some lint free wipes (coffee filters work but I do not recommend them because they`re a bit stiff and tend to cause scratches; I used PEC PAD wipes sold here on Amazon that I bought for cleaning photos and negatives) and either rubbing alcohol (at least 90% but 99% is preferred; can usually find at least 91% at Walmart and most stores) or one of those cleaner kits. Also, if you don`t have a small wrench set, you might want to get one, unless you plan to rely on the tool included in the kit. You definitely need a screw driver but most people would know this already.So, how do you put this thing on?Be sure to consult the instructions for each step. Also, before you do anything, take the heat sink and fan and verify you have enough clearance for it on your motherboard and in your case. This heat sink is rather large. There is a risk of it crowding a RAM slot or being too tall to even fit in your case.The first thing you should do is attach the bracket to your motherboard as per the instructions for your CPU. If you`ve already mounted your motherboard to your case, you will have to take it out. I used a wrench because I didn`t have enough space to flip it completely on its back and use the included tool.Detach the fan from the heat sink.After you do that, put the X shaped bracket through the gap behind where the heat sink makes contact with the CPU. Keep the adhesive strip on for now. Test and make sure the X bracket matches up with the mount points you attached to your motherboard. Once you confirm you have it correctly adjusted, place your CPU in the socket (if you haven`t already) and secure it.Clean the CPU cap (the part where the heat sink will connect with the CPU; use a lint free wipe and the alcohol or cleaner solution) and place thermal paste in accordance with the instructions for your thermal paste. If your thermal paste lacks instructions, the idea is to have just enough paste covering the part of the cap directly above the core(s) for your CPU. If you can`t find specific directions on google, you could try putting a small plus sign of paste in the middle. To get the appropriate amount of paste, you need only an amount equal to a single line covering about 50% of the length of the CPU cap. So, if you do a plus sign, it only needs to be about 25% of the length of the cap. If your CPU doesn`t have a cap, just place a rice sized dot in the center of each core. Again, most CPUs have instructions for this online.Once you`ve done that, take the adhesive strip off of the heat sink. I recommend cleaning the spot you took the adhesive off of (again, using a lint free wipe and cleaning solution) but it`s not absolutely necessary. If you want to confirm whether you put enough or too much paste on, you can place the heat sink against the CPU, apply some pressure (just enough to get the paste to spread) and twist the heat sink a little each way. If you pull it up and the paste is going over the edge, you have too much and should use a lint free wipe to clean the excess along the edges. There should be at least enough to cover a circular area over all cores.You should now carefully line up the brackets and orient your heat sink. Proceed with lightly screwing in each screw. Once you`ve got all 4 screws started, go around and tighten them all down.Finally, reattach the fan, plug it in and you`re done.So, what did I like about this?Once I finished putting it on, it lowered my idle temps quite a bit (down to about 27 C idle and about 48 C under load with the core temps topping out around 63 C under load) and it fixed the overheating problem I was having with my stock heat sink. Supposedly, over time the temps will get better as my thermal paste settles but I don`t expect a huge difference. The fan hasn`t noticeably raised the noise level in my PC, which is fairly quiet. I had a little trouble keeping the fan from touching the heat spreader on the closest RAM stick but I managed to wiggle in a tiny gap. The top of the heat sink comes really close to the other side of my case but there is a gap there. Overall, I`d say I`m satisfied.When I first put my stock heat sink on, it did a fair job (but not great since even a small overclock caused it to overheat) at keeping the CPU cool. However, about 3.5 years later my idle temps had nearly doubled and games were starting to make it overheat. I had a choice to make. I could either clean off my stock heat sink and CPU and put on new thermal paste or I could buy a new heat sink. I decided that if I was going through that much trouble, I might as well invest in a good heat sink. This heat sink is compatible with a large range of CPUs. Furthermore, I don`t plan to stop using my i5-3570K any time soon. So, even given the age of the CPU, I think I`ll get my money back out of the heat sink. I`m wishing I hadn`t been lazy and bought this heat sink back when I initially put this PC together.For anyone curious, these are my motherboard and case.ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel MotherboardThermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS

  2. I needed a cheap heat sink for temporary use while my Tt Floe Riing 360mm AIO was being replaced under warranty due to a leaking pump. I have to admit that this is way better than I expected it to be. My CPU temps at 5.0GHz in Cinebench are roughly the same as they were at 5.2GHz in Cinebench using water cooling. I added a second fan for push/pull. The temps are good enough that I don`t have to be bored or impatient running stock clocks or a mickey mouse overclock while wait for the RMA. If you are on a tight budget and cannot afford liquid cooling, I highly recommend this cooler.

  3. This thing is huge, a little more complicated to put on than a stock fan, but the benefits are even bigger.Pros:- CPU temperature went 25 degrees lower average. System is ridiculously cold as well because of the air flow (see next pro).- Air flow is way easier to design with with a stand-up fan blowing from front to back- Optional second 120mm fan can be mounted with provided attachment- Cheap- Versatile, can be used for many chipsets, so if you ever make a new build you will most likely be able to use it again (see product description)Not really cons, but to keep in mind:- No preset thermal paste (tube included)- If your RAM has extra metal on top (heatsink), it might be tight/hard to fit/not fit (easy-breezy with low-profile Ballistix)- If it`s an upgrade, you will have to remove your motherboard as there is a part to attach at the bottom.- Assembly requires some attention. The provided instructions have no words, just drawings, which can be confusing. Also, they mixed multiple chipset AMD/INTEL setup instructions so pay attention to the top left corner of each drawing. I recommend looking for a video instruction on YouTube with your chipset. The instructions weren`t exactly in the same order as the paper`s and felt more logical to me. Worked perfectly,

  4. I replaced the stock intel cooler on my 4790k with this when I learned that I was sitting at 60C idle and had thermal throttling under load (AIDA64 stress test was quickly approaching 100C before I shut it down). This new cooler keeps me idle at about 30C, and even under full load (again using AIDA64) it is hovering around 60-65C. Very satisfied with the performance.I have previously installed an older model hyper 212 on another computer, and like there, the installation was pretty easy.The cooler looks much nicer than the older metal color model, and the RGB just adds to it.Honestly couldn`t be much happier about it. Highly recommend.
