"As efficient as a liquid cooler."
If you're confused between a liquid based cooler and this one, you can go with this one and save almost at least 50% on the money that you would spend on a liquid cooler. This works amazing. I do my rendering, video editing, gaming stuff and in summer my computer had started turning off due to high temperature of up to about 85C. This thing halted that temperature to 54C while doing the same work. Crazy product by Cooler Master. Everyone should use this.
Con: A bit bigger for many chassis. You might want to go through the details about the physical size of this cooler before proceeding. Or you will have to keep one side of the CPU open as his will be peeking out of it due to its size.
