Best cooler I've used so I can't complain.
AMAZING CPU COOLER!!! I've already used the R1 Universal and was very happy with it so I got this M9a for my Plex Media Server rebuild and it is absolutely perfect for my needs. VERY quiet, small, compact and clean looking. Cryorig, you make amazing Coolers and I will continue to use your products for every one of my future computer builds!
Best cooler you can get for the money! Looks good and performs great :D!
I was going to give this 3-4 stars because I had a hell of a time trying to remove the stock amd bracket from my motherboard. the screws got stripped and took an hour. that's not cryorigs fault though. I did find the installation a bit finicky, but again because I didn't take the motherboard out of the case- the instructions suggest you take the motherboard out. The fan for the heatsink isn't easy to remove, but I guess that's actually a good thing. The heatsink comes with rubber strips (2) installed for both sound and vibration. this thing is SILENT. compared to the stock cooler it's practically inaudible. It cools well and sits 15 degrees idle minimum. The fan even has a good quality black braided chassis cord. cheaper than the EVO, and comparable performance. It also isn't anywhere near as big, doesn't cover my RAM and with these factors (plus the fact it's very aesthetically pleasing) it gets my 5 stars. The fan comes with brackets and rubber strips if you wish to install another fan, thought that was a plus too.
Looks great, runs quietly, and is super cheap! Installation is a pain in the *** if you can't get easy access to the back of your mobo, but not worth taking off a star.
Great cooler! I sit around 27 C at idle and 45 C under load with an fx-6300.
