Nice cooler, but fiddly to fit.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scythe Shuriken Rev.B Quiet Low Profile CPU Cooler (Electronics)The cooler is very quiet, but fiddly to fit. Even with the motherboard on the bench. If you are considering this as an upgrade on a motherboard already in place, you will need very nimble fingers.
On a new build check whether you need to put in the RAM chips first. I realised rather too late that I should have done. Mine is a full atx board too.
It does fit 1155 (sandybridge) mobo as well as 1156, although its not mentioned in makers spec.
The instructions regarding push-pin operation to fit on 1155 mobo are useless, so unless you have come across them before take some time to work out how they operate. Especially if you are fitting into existing equipment.
I have deducted one star because the instructions for 1155/1156 socket fitting are pitifully inadequate. If you are already familiar with the fixings, you'd give it all 5 stars.
