Excerpt: After building my studio PC/DAW based around my AMD 8350 I knew I was going to have to purchase an aftermarket Heatsink/Fan. This is by far the best cooler out there, price is phenomenal and keeps my CPU cool, it's extremely quiet even under load ( I tested it running BF4 with my Gigabyte Windforce...
Excerpt: I have had this running on push pull for many years now on my previous phenom 2 965 and now on my new FX6300 both with a high overclock and idle temps always below 30 and load under 50. Very good build quality and supplied fan is also good.
Excerpt: I had the stock cpu cooler for my i7 4770K, & was doing stress testing on it & was getting upto 100C when all cores were at 100%!! Installed this & the same tests were maxing the temps out at around 78C. Well worth the money spent.
Great cooler, but quite tall. Bypass the T4 and get this one.

Excerpt: I bought this cooler to replace a Hyper T4, because I noticed, by feel, that the CPU and areas near to it on the cooler were warm, but the fins themselves were cool. In other words, the heatpipes of the T4 weren't working. Furthermore, the T4 mount is fiddly and annoying.
Excerpt: So....I had the basic cooler on my AMD FX 8320 Black Edition 8core . The different is so big. The fan Speed and the temperature different: basic Fan- 2800 50C This Fan- 980 30C Silent as I wanted....but you have to be careful...couse its big. Just fit the sides in my pc, and I got a pretty big case.
Excerpt: Really easy to fit (get your screws aligned on the mobo before you apply silver compound). fits uATX chassis fine and leaves plenty of room.
