5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 12 July 2014
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (120mm) (Accessory)
Great item. Comes with lots of different fittings for different motherboards.

Can be a bit fiddly although this was, of course, to be expected.

Instructions were a little vague but was enough for me to install it. This fan in particular has lots of youtube demonstrations on how to install it, typically with an LGA 1150 socket.

As others reviewers have noted, this fan is quite tall. It fits my Zalman Z11 plus perfectly fine, but this is a wide case. This fan therefore is not suitable for smaller cases. Also, the fan+heatsink is quite thick, so it may obscure some RAM slots. This was the case in my MSI Z87-G45 motherboard, where it would obscure 1 RAM slot. This can be countered by having the fan on the other side, however usually cases and rigs are designed to bring cool air through the front and then is dissipated round the back, so bear this in mind. You can of course change your fans to however you like.

When Idling. my cpu sticks to temperatures of between 28-32. I have not pushed my processor yet but I will put a performance result when I do.

Overall, I am happy with my purchase. I will update this review in a few months, I intend to do some gaming and maybe some editing on the pc so that should test out this cooler.

Note: This product did come with some thermal paste (not pre applied), which is fine but its worth a couple of quid to buy some artic silver compound instead. Good stuff.
