5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I needed, 2 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII M4 Downblow Cooler for CPU (Accessory)
I want a heat-pipe design heat-sink not only disperse the heat away from my CPU, but also cool the components around it. This heat-sink brought the temperature on my i5-4570 to 36C idle, 53C under load, what's more, it also bring down the heat on the CPU voltage regulator from 65C to 43C. It does so silently, almost like a fan-less heat-sink.

There are 2 problems however:

1. This heat-sink is huge. And will very likely to obstruct your Ram. I'm using G.Skill Ripjaws and the heat-sink (fan section) just sat on top of one. Right now its fine, but it I was to get the that ram out, I would have to take off the fan or the heat-sink out completely.

2. Installation requires you to get to the back of your motherboard. For some people, it would means you'll have to uproot your motherboard.
