I did have a look but couldn't find many other people using this on there build but I liked the look of it and for £16 I thought I probably couldn't go wrong! In the future I might look to upgrade the CPU, overclock and go down the water cooler route but for now this seems to be keeping my temps down! It's a little bit of a faff to fit as the backing plate doesn't screw directly to the motherboard and you have to do a bit of balancing to get everything to fit! This comes with all necessary fittings, a small tube of paste etc. and for the money it seems to be doing a fairly good job! I am not a gamer so can't comment on temps when under heavy load but so far I haven't seen temps over 45 degrees when editing and playing videos. Personally i think it's a good looking bit of kit, it's very quiet and seems to be well made. The kit does come with spare clips and rubber strips so a second fan can be fitted to exhaust out the back for better cooling. There is no interference with RAM and the cooler is fairly short so would fit in a much smaller case.
This thing is great. Compared to the Hyper TX3 that my friend has, it kills basically everything. The Noctua offering at this size is a little better, but that may or may not be down to thermal pastes- and at $20USD, it can't be beat.
This CPU cooler was given to me from my dad and works better than the stock intel cooler. The CPU stays around 60C under load with this cooler. CPU is currently the area with the most heat in my case, since my graphics card doesn't produce much heat.
Easy install. Surprisingly good performance for the cost. Cryorig is currently my favorite CPU manufacturer for their simple instillations and generously included large tubes of thermal paste.
I have this on an i5-6500 and even under a full load stress test in AIDA64, the fan didn't even reach 700rpm and the CPU was cozy in the low 50s. Stable.
Great value for $20.
Amazing cooler for its size. Works better then I imagined it could. Very easy to install, took only minutes and Cryorig provides everything needed in box. Registration card comes in a sterile package to allow you to use it to spread thermal grease (this blew my mind, I guess I'm very easily impressed).
Very nice little cooler.
Great little CPU Cooler for the price. Definitely worth buying if not overclocking extremely.
Keeps the cpu at around 29 idle. Can be a little loud at higher rpms. Great compatibility with case depth and RAM. Struggled with installation, but mostly because I didn't follow the directions. The arms attaching the fan to the heatsink are a little loose, and occasionally need repositioning to stop a rattling sound.
I decided to go with air cooling since I was tired of hearing the stock fan making loud noises after month or two. The Cooler was easy to install and the fan included has a nice set of colors in the middle.
It does what it's supposed to do!
