    Re: Cooler Master MasterAir Pro 4

    I've been searching for a replacement cooler for weeks now ( main 2 PC's are a Phenom11x965Be. Quad core and an FX6100 6 core ). I was considering the over popular Evo 212 but finally decided against that but looking at this at roughly £10 more than the Evo I can't see this selling that well. My main problem being on the AMD platform is that I want front to back mounting orientation for the fan and not want memory slots blocked ( I have Gskill Ripsaws ) I think I have finally decided on the Thermaltake Frio 140 or 120 , both apparently will do this for me , give me slightly better cooling and be quiter. Both I have sourced at £33.00 which is about as much as I want to spend and seems to be the best answer to my problems.

    Re: Cooler Master MasterAir Pro 4

    It kinda bugs me that most tests arn't being tested against best seller s or best performing items in the same price range on this website lately.
    I know and can imagine that manufactors demands include this kind of thing pushing new lines etc but as a comsumer these reviews are hazarding in becoming meaningless for people.
    It will be intresting to read on other sites just how this stands up to a 212 evo, people are going to test the two together and you have missed a trick here.
    New budget heat sink again a budget heatsink that is viewed by the pc building comunity as one of the best for the money.

    Quick question, on a cooler like this and you want to do a push-pull fan scheme, which type of fans should you choose?

    static pressure for push and airflow for pull? what do you guys think?

    Sort of interested, but that second 120mm fan? The one that is fitted looks different to a standard fan so I would imagine it would be better to get the same fan from the manufacturer so speed/airflow (and looks if that bothers anyone) match and it's likely to be a high price. Or 2 other fans- then why bother to buy this HSF in the first place?

    Likeable?
    The Maker 8 looks customisable to coolness well enough, but the base models look like any other standard heatsinks.

    Generally you use two of the same fans and in the case of restricted air spaces like this you will want static pressure. You want identical specs both sides, else you can create compression stalls in one or both fans and potentially ruin them.

    Re: Cooler Master MasterAir Pro 4

    Bought this for a new gaming system using Ryzen - first time buying an aftermarket air cooler, in a define R5. Any advice for choosing direction of fans etc?
