The included fan clips are very poor quality imo and they don't flex enough to fit snugly onto the side of the cooler where the ridges are. I wish they would have included better fan clips on this, my only gripe about it.
Replace the Noctua D14 installed on ASROCK Z68 Extreme. The D14 covers the PCIex1 and the 4 DIMM slots. With this CPU heatsink, I can use the PCIex1 slot and the ram cooler. This cooler perform slightly better than D14 and takes less space. i2500K OC to 46 multiplier and still under 60 degree with prime95.
Got one of these cooling a 2600K. Bought it to compare to my Corsair H70. The temps are only a couple degrees warmer at full load, and basically the same at idle or under light work load. So far very happy with it. The mounting system is simple but very effective! Would buy again without a doubt. Great value when you get it on sale for $40 that's for sure!!
Installed on 1155 socket. Easy installation. Slapped on 2 Arctic Cooling F12 PWM fans. Clips fit perfectly. Used my remaining Arctic Silver 5 instead of the included stuff. There is no labelling on the thermal compound to tell you what it is exactly. I can only assume it's their PK-1.
Mounting the cooler was easy, except for the part where the mounting system is actually quite loose until you install the heatsink. It would also be nice if this included two sets of fan clips. Regardless, performance is great, and if you have a windowed case, this comes with a cool design on the top.
This thing looks as good as it cools, while it won't give you the lowest possible temperatures of all the coolers, it still with 1 or 2 degrees. It doesn't come with fans though so you'll have to buy your own.
I think I may have messed up when applying my thermal grease on my CPU because my idle temps on the stock core i7 930 is about 30 degrees, and other reviews have shown you can get it down to about 25 degrees or even less on idle (I'm using 2 Scythe S-Flex 1200rpm fans in a push pull configuration).
The NCIX product description on this seems to have been revised at some point. It was originally said to have included a fan, but that was removed recently. The one I received did not include a fan so I used a Scythe S-FLEX 1600rpm fan on it.
I would've expected this to have anti vibration strips, but I didn't check to see if it did. NCIX description on the product is completely wrong, but most people ordering this should already know that. A good performer despite all that, just like in the reviews.
