Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since I took it upon myself to build a new rig the issue of cooler plagued me somewhat. Fighting against limited headroom and ram sticks with unnecessarily large heatsinks I eventually settled on this for two reasons. It was under 160mm tall and guaranteed to be clear of my ram.
The cooler is quite compact compared to some of the monsters available right now. The kit itself is well presented and clearly labelled.
Intel fittings in one box, AMD the other and a third box for the tim/additional fan mount and case badge.
Installation was quite frankly the easiest I have ever done. You mount the back plate, install the two fittings onto the arms and then mount the cooler on the arms tightening with the supplied screwdriver. It was really easy and the instructions clear and easy to understand. I installed mine whilst my system was in the case as I have a large cut out to access the rear of the mobo but you may need to remove the mobo or build outside the case depending what case you are using.
This cooler is currently sat on my Intel 4670k at stock speeds. It is idling at 26c with an ambient room temp of 21c. After an hour or so of gaming on BF4, I've not seen the temp go above 46c. I'm running it with the one supplied fan and it is quiet as a whisper!
So despite it's diminutive size it is a very capable cooler and I am very happy with my purchase.
