love the RGB and the AMD sign, and the fan is amazing
Great cooler with great color. Too bad the color effects are very few. Depends on motherboard
Get a 212 Hyper with a cheap SP fan and save yourself 80 bucks. I only got this because of case limitations. Lights don't do much for me and its kinda ugly looking for a upside down pyramid. If you need performance get a Noctua D series and two fans mean less noise *** well when controlled. I am usually really good at getting a good cool PC environment, but with this dispersing air in all directions it became more of overkill with positive pressure and hope the air gets forced out.
Was surprised to find this cooler included with my FX-8350, didn't think it had RGB LEDs. Super quiet fan. Tried a cheaper no brand cooler and ran Prime95, then installed this one and ran Prime95 again, and this one keeps the CPU cooler by at least 10 C, and much more quieter. The cables to connect to the fan to change the LED colours or animation are not obvious. I connected just one in my build to the USB header, set my colour, and then disconnected the cable. Even after no power, the fan remembers its RGB setting.
A good lesson not to buy things just because they're pretty, but man is this cooler pretty. Looks aside, this thing was a pain to get on my motherboard, and I have no idea why. Couldn't get one side on for the life of me, and the only way I could get it on securely was with one screw missing. It doesn't make a difference though, as the fit is extremely tight and even without the screw it's not going anywhere. Also, be aware that the led ring is tinted slightly cyan if you set it to white.
Hard to install and pretty small, however it works pretty well and quietly too.
I'm not able to change the RGB for some reason, but it's probably because of my motherboard.
I bought the AMD Wraith Silent cooler from amazon for $25. Mine doesn't have the flashy rgb ring, just a nice illuminated amd logo. Its worked great so far, keeping my CPU cool and it is fairly quiet. It's a monster though and ram fits very closely once everything is in place. Compared to the stock cooler that came with the fx 8300, this thing is well worth the 25 bucks!
