Doesn't cope with 105W TDP CPU, while it's TDP 150

I supposed that it can cool well the CPU but I think it doesn't. While playing games CPU temperature goes up to 80 degrees (celsius), so I feel the heat of the PC case when I'm sitting near it. When not playing games the temperature is up to 60 degrees. My CPU is AMD Ryzen 5900x with TDP 105W and the CPU cooler's TDP is 150W. As the CPU's TDP is much less than the cooler's TDP I thought that this combination is more than enough, but it isn't...

Bad design. get a noctua

The fan clamp is really poorly designed, difficult to remove and very difficult to install. Back side of the base mount did not have enough clearance height, touching some of the electronic components, spacers not provided. I use an ASUS H370 itx motherboard, notua towers and low-profile ones fit flawlessly.

This is an amazing heat exchanger design, I was even able to put a fan on both sides (came with enough hardware) with an extra fan I own. (120mm fan). Impressive and stylish design. Only caution for buyers is to verify the height of the cooler fits within your computer case.

The best air cooler ever

Very quiet and looks stunning. Installation is very easy and satisfying. CPU temperature looks stable under heavy load and the cooler does a good job. And it looks amazing :)

OK, I would have preferred a simple fan cooler that Intel normally provides, but this is quite adequate. More than I can say for the instructions. If you're a mechanical engineer or have installed these before, you won't have any difficulty, but I'm an electrical engineer and not all that mechanically inclined, so a better set of instructions and diagrams (or video) would have been appreciated. Also, the unit comes with thermal paste already applied, though I would have rather applied my own to the CPU, so that you don't have the paste coming off the sink before you mount it completely, which can easily happen in tight quarters. Best to mount this assembly to the motherboard outside the case!

Quietly works as expected.

It can't deal with AMD 5900x

By Mokhirjon

I've already written a review where I said that the CPU temperature goes up to 80 degrees (celsius), but recently the CPU temperature has started to reach 90 degrees (easily). So, I have to set my CPU frequency limit to 3.6 GHz while it can work up to 4.8 GHz (it's very sad). In my verdict, it's the wrong choice for the AMD 5900x. One of these manufacturers lies to us about the TDP information, because a cooler which can deal with 150 TDP, in fact, it can't even deal with 105 TDP.
