Good cooler with a down side to it.

Good news and bad news with this product. The good news, it is an excellent cooler. It makes the Q6600 B3 I have idle at 20-19C, and peaks at around 55C on Prime 95 full load with 1.35 volts. To achieve this I swapped the stock fan with an Antec TriCool from the side of my case (see below)

However, it is so big, that you dont have any space left for a side fan in your case. If your GPU card needs a side fan (most don't, but some benefit from one), your screwed because it pretty much extends all the way over to the other side of your enclosure. As it happens, my 9800 GX2 does runs hot and benefits from a side exhaust.

So yeah, if you need a side fan in your rig, dont bother. If you do, try it out, its a good product for the price.

Big cooler

Bought this cooler from OC after i was advised to get it from the OC forums :) very happy with the performance from this sits at 32 degrees idle and 39 when playing games and having videos running in the background. Processor i use is phenom ii 550 BE (unlocked to 4 cores) VERY easy to install for an AMD point of view because u dont have to remove the motherboard from your case like u do with intel so took about 10 mins to install it :)
comes with thermal grease however used artic silver 5 which is great stuff
Only con for me was that its large and overhangs one of my RAM slots so had to move the RAM to channel B.
The fan that comes with this is very quite too and can only hear my case fans (Antec 300 case)
All in all very happy with this cooler and for the price its a bargain tbh :)

Check measurements before buying

Unfortunately I didn't account for the size of this cooler when I bought it - it overhangs the memory banks with my AM3. Fitting it was a doddle, I couldn't fit RAM in after though, so I had to revert to the AMD cooler.

Outstanding1

Great piece of kit, an absolute doddle to fit, took me less than 5 minutes, other makers should follow siut, bargain! Oh by the way, outstanding cooling as well.

Excellent performance and value

Bought this as the stock cooler on my q6600 had stopped doing its job as the cklips had broken.

Temps were reaching 100 degrees C and causing auto shut off, the fredom tower combined with AS5 thermnal paste has my cpu at 34 degrees idle, huge improvment.

Little bit fiddly to install as you have to install a plate to the back of the motherboard but other than that its really easy and secure. In a new build system it would be a dodle but as mine was alrerady built i ahd to remove PSU and motherboard but thats largely down to my case etc.

100% recommend excellent cooler!

Excellent

Bought this after seeing it get a shining review in Custom PC magazine.

It's a great piece of kit - looks good, cools well and best of all - easiest CPU HSF I've ever installed. You just stick the backplate on, put the cooler in place and screw it in. That's all.

After years of getting blistered, cut and worn out fingers from bad mounting systems Akasa should be congratulated for this.

All in all, I'm very happy with it.

Great Product

Bought this CPU cooler for my Q6600, the great thing about the cooler, is its compatability with other processor sockets, so its future proof for now.

temps are good, my stock Q6600 idles at an average 21c on the cores, and under loads ive not seen it exceed 35 as of yet!

took the plunge and its a great product, its massive also, so make sure it fits in your case!
