I received this item last week and installed it. Going from a cooler master heatsink and twin fans to cool my Intel processor, but it was still hitting 61c under a heavy load. The difference with the corsair hydro cool was immediately much cooler even with over clocking my 3.6ghz quad core Intel processor to 3.8ghz with a 4.2ghz turbo My processor under a heavy load is now running at 42-45 Celsius what a difference, and considering corsairs great reputation for quality and performance this is a must have for those who want to keep the systems up and running for many years even overclocked this is a must have
I went with AMD because my old i7 1150 socket had popped its 3rd motherboard. Well the last one i bought was *** and for the same motherboard today it was almost $500 for a USED one. Was kinda sick of Intel. This chip is running 3.77ghz out of the box on my asus prime x370 motherboard. No problems yet.
Running an AND FX 4130 Quad Core, don't really need the cooler for it because it's AMD but did a Desktop overhaul and wanted all the gadgets. With 4 copper Zalman cooler was running 104-110F, now 72-84F overclocked 30%. When things actually work it's satisfying. This cooler works like a champ and for not much more than a nice regular cooler. Who knew??
