A really necessary purchase, glad I found this product.

I'll start right away with my experiences after the order. As a rule, modern motherboards and processor heatsinks are made with a backlog for maximum compatibility. Therefore, when I ordered it, it didn’t even occur to me to look at the be quiet! motherboard compatibility. But smart people decided to direct me to this site, but the cooler has already been ordered and paid for. It remains only to receive it. The manufacturer's website for my Asus TUF GAMING H570-PRO categorically states that it…

  • I really liked the appearance, it is conveniently mounted on the Intel platform. For the money - maximum cooling. And most importantly - QUIET! Made well and of good quality. The base is flat. More details in the comment below. FINALLY turned out to be COMPATIBLE with my TUF GAMING H570-PRO motherboard. The Be Quiet Pure Base 600 is also included in the case, but here, forgive the milimeter to the side cover - there are 1.5-2 mm left. The manufacturer actually specified the maximum cooler height of 165 mm for his case. The hero of today's review has a height of 163 mm. - Well, as if almost everything is honestly indicated.
  • Not detected.

As for the cooling efficiency, I can’t say anything definite yet, because. didn't do any testing. I can say the following: - this cooler is fully compatible with Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 3000MHz RAM sticks. With a total height of 40mm above them, there is a margin of 3-4mm under the fan. - in an open stand during a test run with an Intel Core I7-8700K processor, the fans periodically tried to turn off, i. E. even passive cooling was practically enough. Perhaps under load they will still work all…

  • Fairly easy to assemble and install. Climbed RAM strips with radiators. It turned out to be not as scary as it was painted in some reviews
  • There are no hints of the tightening torque of the bolts and fasteners to the motherboard. It would be possible to make a more convenient fastening of the clamping bar

The purchase brought only positive emotions.

I'll start with the fact that a couple of weeks ago my dropsy BeQuiet! SILENT LOOP 360mm started acting up after working for only 6 months, the processor temperatures crept up, and not abruptly, but slowly. I decided to disassemble and change the thermal paste and blow out the dust - which I actually did, but only after that the pump completely stopped pumping and the percentage immediately gained 96 degrees when Windows started. It immediately became clear that the pump was acting up or it was

  • - Silence - Excellent heat dissipation (i7 7820x overclocked no more than 80 degrees) - The easiest assembly, you know, dropsy is more difficult to install than this tower!
  • Rather, these shortcomings will concern only my case: - A hefty tower closes the backlit Gskill RAM - A hefty tower covers the display from Asus prime 299 deluxe, on which I displayed the temperature of the processor

The product disappointed, does not meet the promises.

Prompt delivery is certainly good, but I don’t want to pay for a new product and receive something that someone has already smeared and scratched (and possibly used), so I highly do not recommend this store!

  • The cooler arrived quickly and the kit immediately included mounts for socket 1700.
  • I bought it in OnlineTrade and was extremely dissatisfied, firstly the box arrived crumpled and torn in places, secondly, the cooler had obviously been visited by someone else before me, since when opening the box it was clear that the radiator itself was smeared with prints, and the factory film, which should be on the plate, which is directly in contact with the processor has already been removed and was glued back, there are also 2 deep scratches on the plate itself.

The best thing for the money, Im glad I chose this option.

If you don’t want to install CBO, then for your 6600r, this, in my opinion, is a very good solution to the problem of heat removal from top processors.

  • Great cooler kit. adapters for different sockets, the screwdriver required for installation is included. Cools the i9 11900k processor without any problems until it has time to load it, in idle the temperature ranges from 29 to 35 ° C. I downloaded Cyberpunk 2077, the temperature in it did not rise above 50. It works very quietly, I do not hear how it works at all, although the system unit is on the table.
  • did not find

I took a hot i7-10700 (with heat release of about 240 watts at peak). Under maximum load, the temperature was around 70 degrees. Installed on LGA1200 without any problems. Comes with a handy long screwdriver. I applied the complete thermal paste. The coolers are very quiet, I assembled a PC on a power supply unit, coolers and a case from a bi-quiet and it turned out very quietly. In general, I am completely satisfied. But a little expensive, for this price one could take dropsy (but not sure…

  • Heat dissipation. Nice appearance. SILENCE! I'm happy))
  • Price. Due to the size, you will have to sweat during installation.

I'm amazed! It was definitely worth the money!

It is worth noting that we managed to successfully assemble the case fans. And behind the cooler, put an additional 140mm be quiet 1500 rpm + 4 120mm for ventilation of the case (2 for intake and 2 for exhaust). Today I moved to a new case (black 2nd photo), removed the splitter and connected the 2nd fan to a separate connector on the motherboard (as advised here). In reality, the temperature became lower by about 5-10C degrees, thanks for the advice.

  • Pulls Core i9 9900k without overclocking! When rendering for 20-30 minutes at 4700MHz, the temperature is not higher than 84C' and 5000MHz for 2 cores is not higher than 50C'. In terms of power, it is comparable to a dropsy 240x120mm.
  • Slightly smaller than the motherboard in size, I have m-ITX

The front fan (smaller than the one in the middle) and the heatsink are made so that you can put RAM in all 4 slots. Just recently I added 2 dies, removed the fan, inserted the dies and put the fan back in place. On others, it can be problematic to install memory with heatsinks in the slot closest to the processor. You need to remove the cooler, after installation you have to move the front fan and leave it shifted. memory does not allow him to fall into place or not put the RAM at all. The…

  • Copes with the task. Cools the Intel Core i7-11700 processor. The front fan and heatsink are made so that it would be possible to put RAM in all 4 slots. Includes a thermal paste screwdriver and a 1x2 4-pin PWM splitter.
  • The problem was with the mount out of the box did not press the cooler tightly to the processor. I had to bend it and that's it, but I decided to take another one to check if it suddenly doesn't fit and would return the cooler back. With another mount of the same manufacturer, everything is ok

Best I have ever used, great product for anyone!

The cooler was taken under ryzen 7 2700, earlier it was boxed with a frequency of 3.4 and temperatures in stress tests of 65-75. Now 4.05 GHz and temperatures in stress tests 80-85. I think the result is super worthy despite the fact that the fans worked without sound at all and at 75% power. In games, the temperature was 55-60. In general, the cooler works out its money by 100%. Maximum performance at minimum temperatures and minimum noise.

  • -Maximum quiet cooler, probably even quieter than nokty and other things. -250 tdp speaks for itself. I think only cool water is colder, but it will be noisier and less resistant over time. -This is my first big tower, the installation did not cause problems, just keep in mind that the motherboard will have to be removed from the case in any way.
  • I don't see any disadvantages. Perhaps the dimensions, but my not the largest Zalman N3 cooler fit normally.

The best thing I've ever used, a great item for everyone!

I have an i5 10600kf CPU, to be honest I expected that the biquite would cope with cooling much better. I tested it in Hades and compared it with the old cooling (ID-COOLING SE-214L-R), the test did not last very long, perhaps not entirely correct, but still, it turned out to bring down an average of 8 degrees. - there are vague doubts about the characteristics of the tdp 250w . but in general, the i5 10600kf at 4.8 GHz keeps an average of 75 degrees in the Aida64 stress test. Despite the fact…

  • 1) Quiet turntables with a long declared service life 2) Beautiful strict and stylish design 3) Support for a large number of sockets
  • 1) High price 2) Large dimensions, which affects the ease of installation. (In order to install it, you need to get the motherboard out of the case)

What you need, a cool purchase, I advise you.

During the stress test of aida 64 stress cpu on i9-9900kf showed 75 degrees at fpu + cpu stress test there was throttling in the region of 5-6 percent and 80-90 degrees I'm not sure if it was because of the cooler, most likely just put thermal paste better, I put the thermal gun from the kit into another assembly, and here I used gd-900, but I’m impressed, because . it copes well with the task of cooling, because in games there are no more than 75 degrees (the heaviest game during the tests was

Pros below: Quiet. Perfectly cools any processor Stylish )) Screwdriver included. Attaches to both AMD and Intel processors, both mounts included. Thermal paste is included, but it is better to take a more top one. Its cons: The size, in fact, is a very big minus in the sense that if you are thinking of upgrading your computer in the near future, it is better to take dropsy right away. Because do not crawl to the memory frames and do not crawl to the ssd, you have to remove it. If an upgrade is

The quality is at the highest level, be sure to try it.

Surprisingly easy assembly (following reviews) comes with a great long magnetized screwdriver. It is better to fix the cooler first. In some reviews, it was advised to first hook the cooler, then insert it together with the mother into the block. But I forgot to peel off the sticker from the bottom and had the opportunity to compare - there is no difference. Am4 5950 keeps at 48-50 degrees in a calm. Very quiet. There are no problems with the operational one either. micro atx motherboard

  • Quiet; powerful; does not close the RAM slots and access to m2; complete set of two different packages with mounts for intel and am4
  • Price only

Matches the description completely, very satisfied.

It is not inferior to dropsies in cooling, but behaves much quieter. I have 9700k. And there are no risks of leaks (the risk is small for modern dropsy, but still there). The new quiet fans are just a cannon. The cooler is worth every spent. I won't go back to dropsy. Take it without hesitation.

  • Silence. Thoughtful design for standard mainstream height RAM. Stylish. Copes with cooling not worse than dropsies.
  • Is that a large size, but this can hardly be attributed to the disadvantages. You just need to calm down.

Reliable purchase, guaranteed to be a good one.

at 10900 with limits of 150 watts at idle about 35, in games 55-65, but in games eating up to 100 watts it will be 70 degrees. in bluebench on all cores 4.6 GHz at 100% load it reaches 80 (I didn’t drive for a long time, maybe it will be higher).

  • Very quiet, you can't hear it. Holds temperature very well. Good assembly, smooth base of the platform - the main plus, good contact with the processor. Well equipped, there is a long Phillips screwdriver. my operative Fury Hyper X easily fit under the radiator. you can even probably insert it into the first slot and pull it out without removing the radiator. you just need to pull out all the strips for accessibility.
  • Large dimensions, it won’t fit everywhere, but for high-quality air cooling, you can’t do without it.

A great option for this money, I definitely recommend it!

Everything has risen successfully, the RAM does not interfere. The only thing is inconvenient to connect the CPU power connectors when the motherboard is already installed in the case. It may be worth, if the power supply is modular, connect these connectors in advance.

  • Quiet. Efficient, in conjunction with 10700k in idle 30 degrees in games no more than 60. The backplate is decomposed into separate bags - Intel / AMD, you will not confuse screws and nuts. long magnetic screwdriver included, no hassle with installation.
  • Not ideally smooth surface of contact with the CPU, slightly convex.

Im amazed! It was definitely worth the money!

See compatibility with the desired board and case size. (Someone can block the RAM, but you can raise one of the coolers a little higher)

  • -Ryzen 9 5900x is enough for stock, but for overclocking I think you can already take dropsy, but this is for those who will still drive such a stone) -Brutal look and lack of backlighting (For those who do not like light bulbs, it will be a plus, but for others, vice versa) - Screwdriver included :D -Quiet -One of the tops in the air, then only dropsy.
  • -Not the easiest assembly, but then you understand all its pluses, unlike cheap coolers on chicken legs and miserable towers with snotty mounts.

Average quality of the product, especially for the money.

A good block, you can use it, but you need to "finish it with a file. " Highly recommend to polish the surface before installation. And in no case do not use the thermal paste that comes with the kit.

  • Beautiful, fits well with the black design of my case. There is a place for installing a memory module, so the fan does not interfere. Comes with a good screwdriver and clear instructions. Quiet.
  • The thermal paste that came with the kit was enough for 3 weeks, then I had to change it. The contact surface is not ideal, a trace from the cutter is visible, in fact, it cut through my processor cover, so that part of the cover remained in the lines of the cutter. See photo.

Just super, the product is made wonderfully, very satisfied.

When installed correctly, it successfully competes with LSS of similar cost without fear that at one fine moment something will leak

  • 1. Quiet, I bought it specifically for assembling a powerful, but if possible, almost silent system unit. 2. Rich equipment and detailed instructions. Pleased with a long screwdriver included. 3. Enough to cool the i9 9900k up to 4.9GHz, 5GHz also pulls, but sometimes the cores jump over 90 degrees in stress tests (here questions are more likely to my stone) 4. Stylish and solid, without unnecessary illumination
  • It is somewhat inconvenient to screw the cooler itself to the mounts, especially considering the need to alternately tighten the screws a little bit.
