inexpensive but PLASTIC mounting !
April 29, 2019
I wanted a CPU cooler, akin to the EVO 212, but less expensive, so I got this one.
Cooling performance is fine for my i5 4xxx, used at stock settings.
BUT the mounting mechanism is made of plastic.
It looks like the stock intel loking mechanism.
I don't like the intel stock because over the years the plastic falls and the cooler does not makes a good contact.
Since it's a tower, the strees on the mechanism is higher, so i expect it to last about 3 to 4 years.
Meanwhile, i still have coolers from 10 years ago that i still use today, and 100% metal, so they would last a lifetime.
