The only good thing I can see here is its fan. I only like the fan, but not the cooler. It seems like nothing can match Hyper 212 EVO at its price tag.

The performance of this cooler is relatively good when overclocked, but still, its $45.

I won this cooler in a contest late last year. It sat on the shelf for 6 months before I needed a cooler and remembered that I had it to try.
It's installed on a Phenom-II X4-980 CPU in an AZZA Fusion 4000 case. The fan is very bright and way too flashy for my tastes. I removed it and installed a pair of Cougar Vortex PWM fans on the cooler.
I like that Enermax included the wire clips to add the second fan in the box. It does cool better with two fans on it as expected.
This cooler does a good job of cooling my rig with a slight OC on it.

CPU: i7-2600K CPU     Cooler: H80 Corsair with two Enermax TB Silence PWM fans.     MOBO: Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3.     RAM: 16GB DDR3-2133 GSKill RipJaws-X (four 4GB).     GPU: Diamond H7870 GHz Edition (times two) in crossfire.     SSD: Kingston 120GB SSD Now 300.     DVD Burner: Plextor PX-L890SA.     HDD: WD 1TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache (times two) in RAID-0.     PSU: Rosewill Hive 750W Semi-Modular 80+ Bronze.     Case: Rosewill Blackhawk With all fans replaced with Enermax (120mm & 140mm) TB Silence w/no LEDs.

Right now it's at 4000MHz and it's stable.

If I run it higher I get memory errors. I have a Sapphire Pure Black 990FX motherboard and it's not so good for OC purposes.
It happens with three brands of memory too. The latest BIOS made no difference either.

it will do for now.
