    performs like the hyper tx3.

    better to get the Hyper 212 EVO, same price.

    the 212EVO beats a lot of ready made water cooled loops.

    Ok cool. :) Can you tell me the feedback? I mean how many RAM slots is it blocking. And I saw your CPU is loaded at 41 degree C. But mine being a 125W chip and heavily overclocked, will I be able to keep temps under 60 at say 3.9 GHz? Please note that my NB is also highly overclocked at 2.83 GHz.

    none of my RAM slots are blocked. but it depends on the motherboard.

    its very very tall though. almost touches the side panel. about 10-15mm left.

    check out frosty PC chart comparison. google it.

    Ok. Another thing. What is the width of your cabinet measured in centimetres?

    doesnt matter. you need to consider the amount of space given behind for wiring, the motherboard stand off height.

    width is 206mm

    i think i will be getting some deepcool fans for after this for the whole case. :D

    deep cool fans have good noise to airflow ratio. better than CM xtraflo at low rpm.

    Hmm. And yes, some other questions too. Will the cooler allow me to remove the crap AMD retention bracket? I want to get rid of it. I mean how is the the cooler installed in case of AMD AM 3?

    just like in intel. you will need to remove the retention brackets.

    takes about an hour or two to install it.

    amd retention bracket is a smart idea. intel retention system is bullshit.

    you will need to take the motherboard out as well.


    and i had a socket head set racheting screwdriver, without it it would have taken me even longer.
    they do give you a socket head, but its non magnetic so it will fall off the screwdriver.


    buy only if you have over 170mm clearance over the mobo backplate.

    ive tested mine with two fans (high performance push/ quiet edition pull)

    ran prime for about an hour max temp 39*c, ambients normal (british) room temps. all settings locked/stock, thermal throttle off. PK3 for thermal compound.

    im impressed.

    I was looking at these on newegg the other day. The deepcool was $20 while the CM was $25 after rebate. Both so cheap, but I personally was thinking that I would go with the deep cool just because its even cheaper.

    Awesome. :) I just watched an Youtube video also regarding the installation of this in an AMD system. Should be easy.
    And yes, AMDs retention is good but I personally like Intel ones more. They are without any bracket for which it looks tidier. Also their stock coolers may be bad but the design is good. They have got omni-directional airflow which cools other passively cooled components also such as the NB and the VRM and trust me, it does it. I have seen it. Agreed that installing the stock cooler is a pain in the a*s but once done correctly, the results are invaluable. At a time, their were a lot of posts also regarding overheating chipset or VRM after installing aftermarket cooler on Intel LGA 775 platforms.
    On the other hand, AMDs retention is smart and simple, easy to install stock cooler. But what if the stock cooler is extremely lapped? Obviously, it will reduce a good amount of the contact area since when you are pushing down the lever, the cooler gets lifted up of the CPU thus reducing contact. The same case as encountered while de-lidding AMD CPUs.

    you have omnidirectional with amd's brackets too. the hyper t4 is omni with the amd retention system.

    i know(used to) the owner of that company. bad rep. bad aftersales. but cheap stuff. i think he went out of business. was banned from some indian forums and such.

    the products were really good though. he bough from the same OEMs who make corsair's products.

    dont know their story now.

    I don't see how. Both nearly identical heatsinks. Does it come down to the stock fan?

    both are NEARLY identical. thats it. there is a large chunk of fins missing at the lower most effective area in the deepcool. they say its for RAM clearance, but it becomes useless as soon as you slap on a fan :p the fins are missing from the region closest to the heatsource, so its less effective. also the quality of the heatpipes must be different.

    which is just 0.2C more than a corsair H80!! a H80!!

    here i got the EVO for <20$, how come you are from the US and yet are paying more for it XD

    oil the fans every 3 months and it will be fine those sleeve bearings don't like to be dry

    you know i like sleeve bearings(fluid bearing). they are serviceable. hate ball bearings, they are noisy as hell as soon as they get a little old.
    also these are made in china, so the quality of bearings shouldnt really be good.

    serviceable parts FTW! :rockout:

    i hate my nzxt fans, they cant be opened up.

    i see 3.

    why not look at reviews?

    http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2696&page=4

    the CM hyper 212 will beat it with 3C difference.


    4 heatpipe will always beat 3 heatpipe. also the Hyper 212 is a proven cooler. its a legend
    also i like the extraflow fans. their smooth blades dont collect much dust.

    i suggest you get CM hyper 212X, newer version with better fan, my gskill ripjaws have no issue, even i use m-atx mobo, single fan , but performance better than evo turbo edition (dual fan)

    here's the CM link : http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/cooling/cpu-air-cooler/hyper-212x.html

    Here's mine
