Rated 4 out of 5 by NXander Decent cpu cooler
A tad weaker than the cm hyper evo but also quieter, if you're looking for a cooler for small to medium overclocking and the noise is a big issue for you, this might be a preferable choice over the hyper 212 evo.

I had read that the latest processor could be damaged by the cooler but although this installation travelled by car everything was OK. Simple to install the only tricky part is to tighten the screws but not too much.

Great value, quiet, easy to install and great quality - if you want to air-cool your new Devils Canyon CPU this is the cooler to use. It can be installed in one of 4 orientations to suit the positioning of case exhaust fans - I installed it to exhaust hot air towards the roof of my case, where I have a 120mm fan installed. For 115x cpu sockets it uses a backing plate, so you need access to the back of the motherboard cpu area when installing the cooler - but the backing plate just clicks into place & is held by 4 small self adhesive pads until the cooler restraint is screwed into place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crit91 great after market cpu cooler for the price
Was using a stock cpu cooler before I got this one and cpu temp went as high as 72 degrees while playing NBA 2k15 using that thing, now it just sits at 45 degrees and that is the immediate difference without having to wait for my thermal grease to set and this is with only 1 case fan on the front have yet to install an exhaust fan to my rig. the cooler can easily fit in my mid tower cooler master elite 430. I found it simple to put together and the installation is the exact same as a intel stock cpu cooler though depending on your ram location you may want to take the fan off before trying to install for easier access to the screw ins also the fan can be easily clipped back into place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Paul2 Kind of loud
The cooling potential on a 3930 isn't great, it does cool it at default but not quietly. It can't handle the CPU overclocked at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul80 Cheap but excellent
Very good cooling, nice and quiet, and a bargain price, too. Fitting the backing plate was pretty difficult and really would have benefited from a third hand, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eldorez Definitely a good buy.
Knocked 25*c off my CPU's temp under a pretty decent load, Guild Wars 2 and Streaming using OBS.
Previously it was 75*c and sometimes pushed 78*c, now it barely pushes 50*c,
It was a bit of a pain to install, and I had to move my RAM on my Asus Hero VI motherboard, although it should not be a problem with lower profile RAM.
Noticed no noise increase/decrease from my stock intel cooler.
This is a very good CPU cooling option for not a very large amount of money! I heartily reccomend it, just make sure it'll fit your case and motherboard.
