Summary: Got this cooler for my AMD FX-8350. For some reason this processor was pre-OC and at heavy loads would get hot on stock cooler. So got this cooler and the temps now stay under 45 C after Battlefield 4. Consider this tubes though, had to remove a side panel fan because the tubes went right up to it.
Summary: Just as the tutorial videos and such describe, its super easy to install, and WOW what a difference. By installing this, cleaning out my case, and some new cable management, took my processor from 80 Celsius (yeah, super hot) to 34C!!!
Summary: It's very quiet installs easy and fast. Plus for being able to be used on Intel and AMD mother boards. (I needed one more word to finish this review so I decided to add "It's" for very first word of this review:))
Summary: Amazing how well this works and how easy it was to install. I am a self taught wanna-be nerd and I was able to figure out the install in minutes. I am building another system and will be using this cooler in the new build too.
Summary: I have an Intel core i7 3770 and where I live it's over 28°C , so it's to much heat for extreme gaming but I have just installed this cooler an it works like a charm, the temperature never rise over 45 degrees.
Summary: Although this item is not incredible liquid cooling, it is still cooling your CPU with liquid. I have an FX-8320 that came with a stock cooler that would run so unbearably loud that I went two days with it before ordering this after-market cooler. I am sure glad that I did! Before I upgraded, I was getting around 34C on my stock cooler and the fan must have been sawing through wood or something because it was loud.
