Rated 4 out of 5 by miniitxbuild Great build quality, fan is good apart from motor noise.
A very good high quality cpu cooler. The cooler itself is a lovely nickel build. With my i5 6600k, on stock idle i get 34oC, and on stock load, i get 55oC in a small itx case.
It just about fits on my z170 itx board, so best to measure your board and memory height before ordering it.
The fan is nice and slim and pulls lots of air in. If you set it to less than 1000rpm, then the choosing noise is less apparent.
Unfortunately for me, i can still hear a high pitched noise from the fan. It seems to be the fan motor/bearings. Even with a replacement fan, the noise is still there. Maybe its just my ears.
Please note, this version does not include the mounting plate to move the fan to different areas on the cpu cooler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by martinLoganAerius Great cooler, fits my mini-ITX motherboard
Got this as a replacement for a Raijintek Pallas that stupidly only allows the fan to be positioned from 2 angles, but this cooler allows for all 4 positions for the fan in 90 degree increments, which makes it fit on my Asus A88X-Plus mobo. Brilliant!

Great service from SCAN as usual.
I have the ROG Impact ITX board and the Thermalright website says it compatable . . . . it's sort of is and isn't.
There are only 2 ways to mount this cooler on the impact, heatpipes facing down - covers the PCIe slot so not graphics card, pointless - or heatpipes facing the back of the motherboard - goes over the ram and 24pin power connector - but this will overhang the motherboard by about an inch or more and will hit anything close to the motherboard. I have 2 itx cases, EVGA Hadron Air and the Node 304, this cooler will not fit this board in both cases. One case it hits the hard drive caddy and the other hits the PSU. I would recommend this cooler just not for an ITX board.
