    from completed build Meshify Mini C for all round fun

    Very impressed with the quality of the kit and supplied accesssories, I guess that’s reflected in the price. Clears the motherboard and DIMMs nicely and can sustain the cpu at 34 degrees at a whisper quiet 250 rpm.

    The hype is real. There are 7! Count 'em 7 heat pipes. I only have one of the 2 fans installed but this blew my Dark Rock 4 out of the water. I would give this only 4 and 1/2 stars because it costs an arm and a leg but if you have to squeeze NH-D15 performance into a small form factor case, this is one way to do it.

    Probably the best non custom water loop cooling on the market.

    Decent cooler, but a bit overpriced. I own a Ryzen 5 2600X, and with the stock cooler (Wraith Spire), I was getting peaks of 76°C in a 2007 game that probably did not even max it out...Now I get 73-75°C after 15 minutes of stress test with RealBench 2.56, which is disappointing; however, consider that my room temperature is around 35-39°C (I live in southern Italy), so this was probably to be expected. Idle temps fluctuate between 39-50°C degrees with the fans set to maximum, if HWinfo is to be believed.
