Not too bad... I wonder when the AMD compatible model will come. It sounds weird that this price range cooler doesn't have AMD support. Well, either they'll risk for not making one or they're making AMD version very soon.

But still... that price range cooler with only Intel support. I wonder who'se great idea was that ( probably some pencil pushing beaurocreat's in the economics deprtament decides to save 25 cnt per piece for not supporting AMD...)

Not bad, but at that price point there are better options. I'd rather have a standard tower like the Xigmatek models that leave me open to whatever fan I want (like the Kaze-Jyu's - 100mm) and work better with a duct.

For a price slightly higher than a Ninja Mini, I'd expect better. Shows how spoiled I am.

Minor point - The link to the Xigmatek HDT1283 review and the end of the article actually points to a website for Prolima Tech.

Another minor point, typo on page 4:
Quote:
At 9V the CORE92's fan measured 16 dBA — equivalent to our reference Nexus 120mm fan at 12V. Thermal rise at this level was 19°C

Should read "At 7V....."

Good review as ever, interesting product and performance at 7V is good with stock fan, but as previously mentioned too expensive.
