Spire Sigor IV SP543S1 Universal CPU Cooler Intel &hellip by Spire
5.0 out of 5 stars Good on AMD, 17 Aug 2013
I installed this on an AMD AM3 board and found it both easy to install and excellent in operation.

The temperature is running at least as low as the original cooler.

I've noticed none of the noise mentioned in the first review, but then again I bought it to replace a very noisy malfunctioning fan, so perhaps its just a question of expectation.

This version isn't PWM so the operation isn't smart, but I think there is a more expensive version of the model which is PWM.

It sits noticeably lower than the original AMD setup eventhough it has a larger fan.

All in all very pleased and would go with this make again for an AMD CPU.

EVGA provide usable software which is good for monitoring the GPU and controlling fans speeds etc.

All in all EVGA is the best brand I've yet encountered when it comes to nVidia cards.

The 2GB of memory comes in handy for 3D design software.

Looked closely and it had a very faint red glow on the LED.

The voice recording only came through if the controls were cranked hard right. This produce a very noisy, hissy recording.

The USB input to headphone output worked okay.

But recording voice via Condenser mic to XLR to the PC produced a very poor quality, noisy recording so the problem was with the mic input. This seems to be the problem most complained about in reviews.

Other thing I need to point out is that one of… Read more
