Experience: 2 Weeks


Very quiet, easy to install, low profile.
Blocks RAM slots.
I chose this cooler for an HTPC build. I am impressed with how quiet it is (can't hear it even on a test bench) and it was really easy to put together compared to other aftermarket heatsinks I have installed. My only complaint is that this heatsink blocked two of the RAM slots on my motherboard, be careful if you need all 4 slots.

Experience: 2 Days


- Quiet
- Low profile
- Very efficient design
- Great cooling power (though had to test this with an open case)
- Doesn't quite fit the case I bought it for with it's included PSU (Apex MI-100BK) unless fan is removed (still a super tight fit)
- Price could be lower
Bought this for an HTPC build - unfortunately it does NOT fit the Apex MI-100BK with it's included PSU, but after removing the fan and bending some metal a bit, it fits well enough. Now the PSU sucks air right from the heatsink.
I was able to keep the fan elsewhere in the case to try and improve the cooling - even though with normal loads it runs perfectly fine, using Prime95 the cpu quickly rose to +70C at which point I just stopped it.
In the end, the cooler itself is very nice, and would be perfect for other builds - I unfortunately just chose the wrong case.

Experience: 90 Days


good quality and compact size
pricematch available
good build quality and quiet performance. compact size.

Experience: 4 Months


Slim and Silent
Maybe large for a mini-itx board
Installed in the tv box. Cooling a second gen. i3 24/7, it is dead silent. The only drawback of this heatsink is that it cover the pci-e slot of many mini-its board. But if you use the onboard video card, this is the best you put on these...

Experience: 2 Days


Smal perfect for small pc
its a parfect part for small pc and that you need space for you pc part.

Experience: 1 Days


Good for HTPC cases such as the Nmedia 2000B that I have it in.
Non sale price is pretty expensive. Also be sure to measure inside your case to make sure it'll fit. Heat sink gets tightened down from the back of the motherboard.
Bought this for my HTPC I've recently upgraded. I put in an AMD 955 BE, the stock fan for those are awful and I needed a low profile heatsink to fit in this case.
I was able to get it on a price match. Seems to be good quality and cools better than the stock cooler. This also clears everything around it in my case.

The 955's are very hot, this keep it slightly cooler.

Notes - A back plate needs to be installed on the motherboard, so that will need to come out during installation. Also it is a good idea to use the measurements in the product description to measure around the CPU area in the case to make sure it will fit. Also the screws to tighten down the heat sink to the mother board are done from the back or the mother board. So if it is in a HTPC case like mine, the motherboard has to come out if I want to reapply thermal paste etc.

Good cooling characteristics.
silly mounting procedure for AMD boards
To measure the size of this put a 120mm fan overtop your CPU. It's quite large but very low profile. My only gripe is the needless backplate and terrible installation instructions.

Performs, but is needlessly complicated.

Experience: 5 Days


Low profile, cost
I would purchase this again, but only if I knew for a fact that it would work with my motherboard/case! Make sure you do your research.

The included backplate does not work with the Intel 775 Mini-ITX motherboards that I have (DG41MJ, DQ45EK), as there's some big Winbond chipset on the back of the motherboard. I also have an ASUS 1155 motherboard at work I may be able to put this on, but I know already it will block the PCIe slot.

The Noctua NH-L12 ($$$) includes special bolts to work around the Intel 775 backside issues.

The Prolimatech Samuel 17 (NA on NCIX ATM) is designed to mount in two different orientations so as to not cover the PCIe slot.

Maybe Scythe could borrow some ideas from these?

Experience: 2 Weeks


Low profile
Way better then stock fan
Too much noise
Blocked 2 Dimm when installing on a micro-ATX Asus FM1 motherboard
Installing this on an AMD requires 2-4 hands sometimes
I bought to complete my HTPC build and when I first opened the box, I was really surprised about the size of the fan. When installing it, the instructions weren't that clear for AMD. I had to figure it out by myself. It wasn't that bad since I already had an AMD before and it was pretty similar. You need to remove the mobo before installing the heatsink. You need access to the back of the mobo. The fan makes too much noise. I can't really hear it since I'm about 5-6 feet from the HTPC but when you get closer, you will hear it. Overall it's a good buy.

Experience: 2 Months


- Very Efficient
- Tight fit with memory
I have been using this cooler with an Asus P8Z77/Pro and i7-3770 and it has been fantastic. I switched the included fan for a Scythe Slip Stream fan and it keeps the CPU cool with very little noise. Wait until it goes on sale as it is a fantastic cooler for a very reasonable price when it is on sale (I got it for $30).

The only drawback is that with this cooler and my motherboard, memory is a very, very tight fit underneath for all but the most low-profile memory. Be aware that on some motherboards you will not be able to use overclocker memory with big fins as it will not fit.

Features [ Edit | History ]


The Update of Big Shuriken, equipped with an additional 6 mm Heatpipe as well as an additional row of fins. This way, cooling efficiency could be significantly increased. By keeping the height of 58 mm compatibility especially with HTPCs (Home Theater Personal Computers) and computer systems with restricted dimensions could be preserved. In addition higher compatibility with new generation chipset motherboards was established by inventing F.S.M.B.4 (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate 4) mounting system. Rev. B provides compatibility with the new Intel LGA2011 socket.
