This is a great looking cooler RGB wise. The blades glow very vividly, yet soft, It cools well and maintain a relatively low noise output from light to medium workloads. Under heavy load it's audible, but disappears with music. Temps are 20-33 idle, 45-55 under active photoshop workloads, 66-74 rendering a 45 min clip in premiere. My only problem is that the cooler was slightly skewed to the side a few degrees. Only noticeable if you're looking at for a while. Would have returned it if this build was for me, but my friend couldn't see it even when I pointed it out. Decent cooler overall. I still prefer Noctua for air cooling.
On sale for $44, but disappointing cooler overall. Loud intermittent fan noise, loud fans in general, and 7c hotter under load than the single-fan Hyper 212 LED cooler that it replaced. I had it for less than a month and returned it as defective.
Looks amazing, has 2x Cooler Master, Master Fan Pro 120 Fans and also 4x RGB strips and the Cooler Master logo on top. Noticed that when auto-synced doesn't have the exact same colour as the rest of the Master Fan Pro 120 case fans. (but since RGB can be adjusted by area this can be easily fixed. Good Performance also - with no overclocking the i7 8700k reaches a maximum of 70 Celsius during stress testing.
This CPU cooler was a bit new when I bought it i think. Its rather large and thankfully my case is big enough to hold it well. I love that it has RGB lighting and it really makes the inside of the system look nice. It keeps my CPU nice and cool and when multitasking with all the stuff I mentioned above, it hovers around 35c. Instructions can be a bit better.
I Spotted this cooler for a build and really wanted to get it for the visual appearance. Its definitely large, with the plastic housing, but it has a fantastic appearance, and good lighting. RGB headers links it right into Asus Aura Sync.
On my Asus Crosshair VI hero, it will fit if one is only using 2 sticks of Corsair Vengeance RAM. if I want to fit in 4 sticks of ram, I'll need to change the cooler or make an adjustment, as it'll collide with the first RAM stick. However, if one has some lower profile ram that doesnt stand off as far from the motherboard, it ought to fit. Just something to make sure of, as this is a rather large block of a cooler.
The copper heat pipes under the fins are what make direct contact with the CPU itself, lending to some fantastic cooling potential for my build. On a Ryzen 7 1700x, 3.4 GHz (not overclocked yet) I can run it through rendering and stress tests, as well as tough games, and the CPU cores only go from an idling 28C to a full-load at 42C. The case and cooling fans hum along at only ~40%, given my personal fan curves, and the CPU stays locked right in at 42C. Fantastic performance for me so far, and I'm looking forward to doing some overclocking with it.
