AK-966 Blue Aurora CPU Cooler (Intel LGA 775)

Akasa Blue Aurora cooler brings together style, ultra quiet computing and hi-performance cooling. The Blue-LED 12cm fan provides massive airflow while Intel approved power management (PWM) ensure the noise levels are always on minimum. Our bright blue-LED will bring light and add colour to your system interior. The technology underlying the Blue Aurora’s exceptional performance is the U-shape heatpipe system. Four extra long U heatpipes ensure rapid and even heat transfer from the copper base to the aluminium fins. 35 fine fins measuring 65x120mm provide a large dissipation area for the ultimate cooling performance. A special mounting bracket with backplate and screws ensures extra-safe cooler retention and perfectly even contact with CPU. The specific fan positioning enhances the VRM cooling (VRM - CPU Voltage Regulator Modules located on the motherboard). Hi-grade thermal compound is pre-applied. The Akasa Blue Aurora (AK-966BL) can be assembled horizontally or vertically (in desktop or tower chassis) as the heatpipes work independently of installation direction.

Perfect for OC

Top marks, big but fits with lots of room in a micro atx case, Quiet, Looks cool and best of all OC'd my E5400 to 3.6 ghz where its idling 35 c - 40 c.
Alot better than any stock cooler.
If i could rate this higher, I would give it the highest possible marks

Very Happy

I have a Q8200 with 4gb ram.
My temps on full load was around 100c
Now after 30 mins of my 1st install of heatsink are now less than 50c. I was thinking of getting a water cooling system but glad i went for this cheap option. Yes it is big and thought it would not fit but managed to get it in.

I really think this is a great little buy.

Amazing cooler

I have this bad boy cooling an Intel E2180. I've had the stock fan cooling it for a couple of years and it was starting to wear up (Reaching up to 90degrees) so I decided to purchase this cooler after seeing the nice reviews for it.

Fitting it wasn't simple for me as I haven't fitted a non-stock cooler before. After figuring out that the backplate went under the motherboard (Duh!) fitting it was simple, and actually much easier than fitting the standard "clip in" stock coolers.

CPU idles at 32 degrees, and the fan spins at ~750RPM, meaning it's VERY quiet. I can only hear the sound of my PSU, and not the sound of the CPU cooler.

One thing you must watch is the size of this thing. I was quite surprised when I got the package to see how big it was, but it fitted in my small case. Wires are a little bit tight, but it fits.

The blue light is cool too! I can't wait to see it in the dark..

This cooler is a BEAST

Bought this because it was cheap and I like AKASA stuff. Turned out to be a great buy.
It keeps stuff way cooler than a stock intel ever could, and still much cooler than my AF7 ever did. Paired it with some arctic silver 5 instead of the thermal paste that came with it.
I have it cooling an intel e6420 and get these temps:
2.1GHz idle: 25

Great Stuff

Had this for a while now and have just changed the supplied 120mm PWM fan to a newer 120mm Akasa Apache PWM's.

It knocked another 8c off my load temps...!!

E6750 @ 3.6ghz now loading at 48c

Cant speak highly enough about this thing.

Worth it

installed one of these today on a QX6800 and added some mx-2 to it i does come with some ak455 and that seems to be better than the usual paste you get with other heatsinks.

The temps are ok as such on idle well i just upgraded from a E6750 so i dont know what to expect as in good for a quad core but this seems pretty good.

ok the temps i get on this per core is
33c 34c 34c 30c on idle
and 52c 53c 51c 50c after 3 hours of gta 4.

just got 1 120mm fan and 1 80mm in a thermaltake mambo.

Overall i do recommend and can also fit in most cases the blue led is a nice touch too its not a good heatsink for people who want to overclock though

Bright and beautiful

Fantastic cooler much better than arctic pro for noise. The nice blue led suites my antec 900 down to the ground
