People on newegg are retarded.
Go by professional reviews. Its a heatsink. Not something electronic that will die on you.
This is the ONLY one star review.
Pros: Works well, I have the older model the tower 120 as well. I use fishing line tied to the top of my case to help support it.
NOTE: NEVER!!! NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER, never!!! spread the thermal paste on the cpu. Always use the following method: put a glob of thermal paste in the center of the CPU about the size of a pea. Carefully and quickly mount your CPU cooler onto the paste rotating the cooler back and forth to spread it out.
IF you should EVER pull the CPU and the cooler apart you need to reapply everything.
THIS is because you get tiny air pockets between the cooler and the CPU, thus decreasing the cooling efficiency by a factor of ten!
Cons: NEVER Spread Paste!
Other Thoughts: The consistency of thermal paste has nothing to do with its efficiency, servers ship stock with a drywall putty consistency paste.
Oh, and this cooler rocks! 32 C idle on a 3.3 GhZ phenom II 940 (in a 76 degree room)
He says it rocks but gives it one star... I rest my case.
The only two star. Everything else is four or five.
Pros: Its a neat design and has an illuminated fan in the middle.
Cons: Not that great a performer.. sure it works and all but for how big it is and how much it weighs it should do a lot more.
Other Thoughts: Get something else if you want better performance.
I am asuming that he put way too much thermal paste and has no idea what he is talking about. There are no air coolers that outperform this thing.
