got the cpu coooler yesterday, lot of hard work to get that installed properly

its so big i had to move my ram, so now i am effectively a 2 stick motherboard

at least now the noise problem is stamped out, at idle the noise is at least 4-5dB less and loaded its more like 8-9dB better.

this is with the silent profile in the BIOS

this runs the 120mm fans at around 950rpm or so

Here is my review finally.

I got the same running in my box doing a good job once your case got enough air feed/throughput.

Tricky installation as the heatsink can come loose after a while if not mounted thightly enough and yes you lose a ram slot if no low profile ram.

My CPU is at 25C (711 rpm) winter here in Australia

its been warm of late, with 30C to 35C outside, and my CPU at idle is 5C above ambient so I am happy

I wanted to stamp out noise and this cooler does a fine job of reducing it

at least now I can play games without the whine of the OEM fan anymore

If You want to lower more noise level, then remove this Hyper 212 cpu fan and  use Enermax T.B.Silence UCTB12P fans.

I use ball bearing fans and I swapped out the Cooler master fan for an available evercool fan which is a dramatically better quality fan.

It's a great cooler! Luckily I didn't have to remove my ram, it's a perfect fit, there is no gap between first ram stick and the fan, but they are not giving eachother pressure either.

On my G-skill ram the heat shield comes off. Its held on with 2 sided tape.

I had to remove it from one stick to fit an AC Extreme cooler on a previous build. I saw no difference with the shield removed.

my evercool fan runs at 2200 and it reduces temperatures another 5C over what the cooler master fan can muster.

i ordered a 140mm fan for the top rear bay on my chassis, the goal is to move even more air to beat off the heat of summer

I may also upgrade the front fans to 140mm too. 

the core cpu cooler is enormous, it barely clears my side panel
