The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

There’s been a lot of hype about Intel’s Core 2 recently, even since they launched Core in fact. Words like Conroe, Badaxe and Allendale have been flying around. The bottom line is that Core 2 is the name of Intel’s latest line of CPUs, based on a new micro-architecture, designed for speed and efficiency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ver Efficient and Easy to Install I picked this cooler after a couple of firms put it forward for consideration after I inquired about good quality CPU heat sink & fan to fit an Asus X99 motherboard with an Intel CPU 2011 v3 socket. It is a big fan but does not impede the memory slots. It is very quiet Performance is excellent. My last PC was 1150 socket with an i7 processor and the heat sink / fan that came with the processor. Usual running temperature was around 65C When running, Kaspersky Internet security in scan mode, undertaking video editing, photo editing temp went up into the 70’s and not infrequently to 80C / 81C My current PC is a 2011-v3 socket with a Xeon 8 core processor. The normal running temp is 35 - 37C Running Kaspersky and / or video / photo editing the max. temp recorded was 46C. It was easy to fit and I did so before I attached the motherboard to the inside of the case. This is recommended not only due to its size but to aid with inserting the RAM. I am very pleased with the fan and I would purchase it again if the need arose. I highly recommend this heat sink / fan to anyone who does not want or can not go down the included option that comes with a lot of CPU's. As I was fitting it to an Intel socket board, I did not need to use the backing plate, which comes with it for an AMD socket. so I had an advantage there. There are two points to note when putting it together 1) There are two fitting brackets one that is screwed onto the motherboard by screws into fixings already on the motherboard On to this is screwed a bar on which the heat sink is attached. On either side of the heat sink fit the fans. The heat sink sits along the bar and is screwed in. You need to decide right from the start which way you want the fans to face - Left and Right or Up and Down.. Whilst the bracket that fits on to the motherboard can be fitted onto the board in any direction (all sides are equal), there are only two screw holes for the bracket that holds the heat sink available (NOT one on each of the 4 sides), so once in place determines where the fans face i.e. towards the top and bottom of the case. Depending on the size of the case and positioning of the CPU the fan could cover the CPU power supply socket, be very close to the top of the case, prevent being able to put in a case fan in the top of the case. The fan facing downwards may impede some of the connections If you position the heat sink so that the fans are on the right and left of the case there appears to be very little problem. I my case they came out to the edge of the memory slots nearest the CPU. They do not stop a standard sized memory module to be fitted. 2) Fan clips. These clip into the heat sink and then around the fans. There are 2 holes on each corner of the heat sink, that the clips will fit into. I did not think it was clear as to which one they should go into. I discovered it is the second hole - the one furthermost from the fan and the clip then fits around the inner part of the fan casing. If you put them into the 1st hole, I found they were too long to fit around the inner casing and not long enough for the outer casing. Make sure you put them the right way around. It was a bit of a fiddle clipping them on to the fans. You have to hold the fan in place when fitting the clips. Even if one side is on you still have to hold on to the fan or you run the risk of the fitted on slipping off. I did have one clip that refused to clip on and kept falling off. Eventually it did clip and stay on. Once on the fans are secured nicely. 02 May 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by No way of getting the correct tension when fitting block to chip Pictures and instructions do not match item supplied with no method of controlling tension when fitting cooler to chip so potential to damage board or chip. Online instructions show dimple in block with a tensioner bolt no dimple in my block just 2 screws without springs that clamp block to motherboard. If you over tighten these you will break your board or cpu if you are to loose the cooler slips down the chip and may not cool as it should. I used double sided adhesive thermal tape to stop this happening 06 April 2015
