Description

A step up in size from the EFZ-80HA3 is the new EFZ-92HA3. As long as spacing permits, this is the ideal cooler for those with smaller cases. Performs better than your stock cooler while operating at a lower noise, it's a perfect complement to your new system and ideal for those with moderate processing needs. If you're not running a highly overclocked gaming system, there's no need to spend much on a giant heatsink that will yield no benefits to you. The EFZ-92HA3 utilizes two 6mm heatpipes that directly contact the CPU and are intertwined to provide four effective heatpipes worth of thermal dissipation. A universal mounting bracket supports the widest range of current AMD and Intel sockets, including the latest multicore Phenom and i3/i5/i7 processors. We've included an Effizio 92mm fan with 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearings for years of reliable performance and no need to purchase any additional fans, though you have the option of adding a second fan for more performance. The installation process is easy with a typical install time of under 10 minutes and does not require the removal of the motherboard. SilenX EFZ-92HA3 92mm 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearing Effizio CPU Cooler.

Wish i had bought it sooner.
I bought this as a replacement for the stock cooler on a dell xps 435t. It has a intel i7-920 processor that nearly melted itself when the plastic housing on the factory cooler broke. I run the machine as a hackintosh and have kept track of the temperature numbers all along.Factory cooler: idle = 58c-61c (136f-142f) load = 79c-82c (160f-183f)silenex cooler: idle = 48c-52c (118f-126f) load = 71c-75c (156f-167f)the fan noise under load went from a jet plane taking off to a low humming. I don't even hear it when it's at idle under my desk.Installation was not easy for me. My motherboard had a bracket behind the board that i had to remove before the rubber mounts that came in the box could be used. Yes, i had to remove the mothoer board and everything attached to it from the case before i could install the cooler. Other than that it went flawlessly and i am pleased with its performance. I only wish i had made the purchase sooner.

Take it for what it is and you'll love it
Bought this cooler at a brick-and-mortar store as part of a pentium g3258 overclock project. It kept temps down nicely in check on that dual-core wonder, with stress test temps around 70-72c even when i had it cranking at 4.4ghz with 1.36v across the core. If you're looking at a low-power, low-heat chip like a pentium, an i3, even an amd apu if you don't overclock it, this is a pretty decent little cooler.I dropped an i7 into the exact same computer in place of the pentium, and while i wait for my beefier cooler to arrive, i decided to run the i7 with this on it at stock speeds and voltage for a few days, just to see what would happen.It wasn't great, but it wasn't a disaster. Furmark's cpu burner temps at stock speed and auto voltage (never exceeding 1.231 per hw monitor) skyrocketed to 80c within a matter of minutes. On less demanding stress tests, like cinebench, they started at 71c on the first run and peaked around 78c by the third. Real-life load temps weren't so bad, peaking around a respectable 65c during hour-long runs of cs:go, skyrim, kerbal space program and ava. But, i mean, this cooler wasn't designed to be placed on top of a 4790k at all, let alone one being subjected to stress/stability testing. If you're going to overclock an i7 or a 75-core amd toaster oven with this cooler on top of it, you might as well be pouring gasoline on your cpu and setting it next to the fireplace.There are a few huge pluses for this cooler. One, it's dirt cheap. Two, it's pretty good at what it's designed for: keeping low-power chips nice and cool. And, added bonus, if you set a custom fan curve for it, it's pretty quiet. The anodized aluminum heatsink looks great, and if you're doing a red-themed interior, it'll match well. And, of course, size. At 123mm tall, it fits easily into cases that couldn't even dream of having a 212 evo, pure rock or h7 in them.That said, there are downsides--a couple big ones and a few minor quibbles. The biggest issue i have with this cooler is its installation process. There's nothing really complicated about it. In fact, silenx has made it easy as pie to get the mounting bracket in place and latch the cpu onto one side...But that other side...Wow. Press down hard. Does it feel like you're about to crush your cpu and snap your motherboard in half yet? If not, you aren't pressing hard enough to get the other side to latch. Removing the heatsink is also a pain and, again, feels like you're one minor slip away from punching a hole through your motherboard, but removal of the mounting bracket couldn't be easier.The second big issue i have with this cooler is the fan. For one, it's a three-prong fan, so no pwm. You either use a fan controller or you're stuck at 60% second is that i just don't trust the quality of the fan. It rattles around in there a bit when cranked up to 100%. It's not that big of a deal, though. 92mm fans aren't exactly hard to come by, and silenx has machined the heatsink in such a way that you can mount another fan on the other side to shave off a few extra degrees.That minor quibble i was talking about? Only two heat pipes. I feel like a third one could have been added and would improve performance, but then this wouldn't be a $16 cooler, would it?Take this for what it is and you'll be pleased. It can handle a pretty hefty overclock on a low-power chip like a pentium, and should be all the cooling you'd ever need for an apu or i3 running at stock temperatures in a neat case. No one's going to mistake its performance with that of a corsair aio, or even really with the performance of the aforementioned 212 evo, pure rock or h7, but you're not buying this chip because you're going to overclock a 900-core amd forest fire. You're buying it because you want something solid and cheap for your low-power or low-profile rig that's going to kick the stock cooler's butt while being quieter and looking better. For $16, you can do a whole lot worse.

Mounting hardware is crap. Cools excellent.Had to use screws and bottlecaps to mount....(for intel, works perfect on amd)

Great all copper cooler. Short of liquid cooling i highly recommend this product
By Lola Rolland
Fits AM3+ and is very quiet
Pros:- fits am3+ processors- very quiet; very low hum, even at max load- keeps my amd fx-8150 cpu temp below 55°c- includes good thermal paste- can add another fan.Cons:- runs at max voltage; does not adjust with cpu needs, i think this is called pwm.Insight:overall, i am impressed with the initial results. Getting the heatsink on was a little tough. It is so quiet, i had the stock fan before, which was load enough to be heard around our 2k sqft house. This fan can barely be heard from 10 ft away.

Fan speed cannot be altered the fan is actually pretty loud (the 18 db on the box is a ...
Pros latches directly to the mounting points on my motherboard (with a little wrestling as you have to push down hard), big plus, no dealing with brackets glass smooth mating surface fan is mounted on rubber rivets, the fan does vibrate some, but the rivets remove any sounds of vibration cons fan is not pwm, fan speed cannot be altered the fan is actually pretty loud (the 18 db on the box is a complete lie), my performance desktop with multiple hard drives, a high flow exhaust fan and 2 graphics cards is actually quieter under load than just this fan (really, my desktop peaks out at 38 db at 1 foot and the htpc this cooler is in is upwards of 44 db at 1 foot) there is a massive air gap between the fan and heat sink, quite a lot of air goes around the heatsink, not that the cooling performance isn't that good, but the air gap is concerning there is as well an air leak out the sides of the heat sink i do like this cooler, anybody buying it should as well buy a 92 mm pwm fan and seal the air leaks with none conductive tape

Question & Answers
By OutletPC Shopper on 2016-06-27
Is this compatible with AM3+? (I have an amd fx-4300)

By Customer Service on 2016-06-27

Answer:
Hello John, Thank you for your inquiry. The Silenx EFZ-92HA3 CPU Cooler should be compatible with your AM3+ processor and motherboard. This cooler is a bit older so it wouldn't have specific directions for AM3+ processors however as AM3+ boards and processors have the same mounting style as AM3 boards and processors you should just be able to use the AM3 instructions for your AM3+ board.
