5.0 out of 5 stars For the price, great cooling performance!, 4 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, this cooler is absolute simplicity to fit on an Intel processor motherboard, not sure about an AMD. Its just 4 pins that hold a bracket to the motherboard and 2 simple screws are used to hold it down. It comes with pre-applied thermal paste covering the whole pad which is a big plus as it saves the hassle of applying an aftermarket thermal paste. It is quiet, I have not noticed any kind of sound increase when transitioning from the Intel stock heatsink.

So, the temperature statistics: On a non-overclocked Intel Core i5 2500k @ 3.3 ghz

STOCK COOLER:

IDLE - 40°C
WATCHING VIDEO - 50°C
LOAD - 72°C

FREEZER 13:

IDLE - 35°C
WATCHING VIDEO - 40°C
LOAD - 55°C

So, temperatures have significantly decreased without any kind of noise sacrifice. Very happy with this product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good board., 29 Aug. 2012
Been running this board in my PC for about a month now. Absolutely no problems so far. Both Sata3 ports are being occupied by my SSD and HDD and 1 of the 4 Sata2 ports occupied by my disk drive. No problems installing CPU and aftermarket cooler. GTX 570 fits in no problem and no struggle to install 2 sticks of Corsair Vengence. One thing I particularly like about this board is that when installing only 2 sticks of RAM, you use the 2 slots furthest away from the CPU. This allows more space for an aftermarket CPU cooler to be installed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very very fast., 31 July 2012

No problems at all with this drive other than why didn't I buy a bigger one! It keeps the system running incredibly fast. Win 7 Home Premium takes roughly about 10 seconds, probably quicker. And the very second that the Windows desktop appears I can click on Google chrome and be away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cool case., 31 July 2012

The case itself looks brilliant and the four built in cooling fans keep the system thoroughly cold. My only con is that the motherboard was a very tight squeeze when first fitting it into the case, otherwise amazing case.
