Customer Reviews

Excellent Build Quality

 1 Aug 2012

This is a superbly engineered cooling fan. It exudes quality.

In operation it is extremely quite. The fan does run quite slowly at start up so you may need to change the bios settings on some motherboards as they will report it as faulty due to the slow speed.

Installation was relatively simple. One of the fans does have to be removed and then reinserted but this is an easy operation.

You MUST check with the manufacturers website to ensure this will be compatible with your motherboard and memory - it is very large and wont be suitable to all combinations. Memory with cooling fans in particular can cause problems because they are too high.

Customer service is also excellent - I had a query before installing it and had a reply within 24 hours and not only did they answer my query but they expanded and explained why the fan was built the way it is.

The only downside is the colour scheme - beige and brown !!!! What on earth were they thinking - its not the 1970s.

very very big

this cooler is a hell of a lot bigger than i thought it would be, not a bad thing but something you should note when buying, also it did not come with an x-bracket which i had to buy separately, this wait was a great inconvenience and irritating so be sure your motherboard has the correct mounting ability.
other than that great cooler, and quiet given the size of the fans

Great Air Cooling

I decided it was time to upgrade and decided to build a socket 2011 desktop pc!

Firstly, the DESCRIPTION is wrong! This edition is the SE 2011 edition and only come s with mounting brackets for Intel's socket 2011 CPU's.

Packaging was decent, got mine from Avides and they packaged it in a secure box.

Contents, was the cooler, the two fans, mounting bracket, thermal paste, screw driver, sticker and manual.

This is a heavy cpu, well designed i might add.

I have not connected it as yet as I'm still waiting for my 3930k cpu and thus I cant comment about it's performance.

One must note that due to the extreme size of this, their is a height restriction on certain RAM!
check Noctua's website for the entire list of compatible Ram. I purchased Kingston HyperX 2400Mhz as it's heatsink's height is too large .

they include two fans, 1x 120mm, 1x 140mm... the 140mm is in the middle of the heatsisnk and the 120mm is on one of the sides in a push pull configuration. To install he cpu, both fans must be taken off.

Cool Cooler

I have a Core i7-3930K 6-Core Processor overclocked to 4.2ghz. I ran the 'Intel burn test' on maximum and the max temp only reached 67°. I previously had an ASUS Triton 88 but that ran 10° higher, there's nothing wrong with the ASUS, probably ideal for lower clocks though.

top notch - but big!

Top notch design and reliability - cant get better than this - I suppose the only thing is it will be bloody hard to get to my RAM now :S but the the price you pay for pushing things. Maybe they could come up with a detachable parts version for RAM accessibility - I am sure people would pay good money for that!

Huuuge, but cool

Very big, easy to install and very quiet cooling. It cools my 4820K CPU to around 20 Celsius degrees in idle and about 10-15 degrees more in stress. On overclocking it goes about 20 degrees higher, which is still acceptable.

qulaity kit.

Lovely construction. Fits my Gigabyte board well. Silent when CPU is performing normal functions. When required really kicks in, and becomes audible.

Super Quiet

Not the nicest looking CPU cooler but one of the best. Really quiet and easy to install. Would recommend to anyone

Huge but effective

Be warned! This is a huge cooler that does what it promises. The cooler covers almost half of my Sabertooth board but it has a "high mount" allowing the RAM modules to be nicely mounted underneath it. Will upload pictures once the setup is done.

Easy to fit, great cooling.

Have now fitted this to "Assassin2" and "Rampage IV Formula" motherboards on an i7-3930k. Socket 2011 fitting - attach two brackets to the mobo using 4 bolts each, screw the heatsink to the brackets then slide in the fans. A Y-cable is used to connect the fans to the CPU header (an extension cable is also supplied). The "external" fan can be attached to the case rather than the heatsink - various fittings provided. Metal clips attach the fans to the heatsink, pressing them against 4 silicone inserts (on each fan). If the heatsink is fitted with these on the wrong side they can be moved to the other side of the heatsink (not that i'd be tired enough to do that :whistlesandstaresatceiling: ). On a simple overclock of 4.5GHz (mem@2133MHz), temperatures are a steady 39C under normal use. Still to try gaming, but it's looking good.
