Cons Huge need alot of room , Price its a little pricy but you do get what you pay for in this case.
Summary Great cooler i have a 750i with e8400 oc to 3.7 and keeps temps nice idle (29c) load ( highest i have seen 46c) thats with room temps anywere from 22c to 26c. Got it with the bolt though kit works great easy to use.
Cons -Very pricey -Doesn't include a fan -May not fit every cases
Summary I've got this about 5 months ago, and it's really good. I can't say how this has exceptional cooling capacities. I have this on an E8400 oc'ed i 3.825Ghz and the temps i have are 30 idle and like 35 while playing. I really don't regret buying this. Even though I've put more cons than strengths, it's really worth buying.
Pros Excellent quality. Cools better than look a-likes.
Cons Price, but you pay for what you get.
Summary I run a Q6600 on this and it dropped my CPU Temperature from 45C on the stock, to 19C. I know that seems a bit much, but my stock heat sink might have been uneven and that would explain the extreme heat change.
Summary The heatsink is a monster. It cools like nothing else. Pair it with a scythe 1200rpm fans and your got your self some serious air cooling. Keeps my e8400 4Ghz 1.4v m a very cool temp of 50oC LOAD!!! May be pricey, but good things are expensive. You get what you pay for.
Pros -Good for OCing -Really strong -Spreads heat well -Secure ( bolted)
Cons -Takes a lot of room -A bit sharp -Gotta screw in 1 screw in a perfect amount, then the other side
Summary This heatsink is awesome for OCers. It's really secure, so you don't have to worry about it falling off; as long as you screw it in well. Get an extra fan to put on the heatsink or it won't help. The bad part about this heatsink is that its a bit sharp, so you might cut yourself. Also, when you screw it in, you have to screw in 1 screw a perfect amount, then the other corner, or the screw will bounce out.
Pros - best air cooler available - excellent mounting system
Cons - rough surface
Summary Easily the best air cooler if you have a high-static pressure fan mounted. While heavy the mounting mechanism is excellent, though it requires access to both sides of your motherboard but that's a small price to pay to prevent the thing from ripping out your cpu and socket.
The only problem with it is the rather rough surface (there are rather deep ridges if you run your fingernail down the surface). Lapping is recommended to improve performance by 2-5 degrees.
Cons manual is kind of hard to understand, had to look it up online to get the better pictures of instructions.
Summary Dropped my CPU temps from 33/65 (idle/load) to 27/46. Such an amazing cooling device.. I use it along with the Noctua NF-S12-1200 120MM Ultra Quiet and now my PC is very cool and quiet. Very satisfied and would recommend it to just anyone..
