Pros: Copper Core, FDB PWM Fan, Metal pins, Fits in Intel CPU Exclusion Zone, Cheap

Cons: Small burr at base, Doesn't keep up at high load overclocks

If you want stock style, I recommend the Logisys Theta 31.

Stock on left, Logisys on right.


  1. It is beefier than the stock unit as you can see. It does have aluminum fins but with a large copper core. It is built to within Intel's specifications for the CPU exclusion zone.
  2. I was seriously impressed, the core has a near mirror finish on it which was covered from the factory. I tried to get a picture of it, but all I have is my phone and I'm no photographer.
  3. The fan is about 20mm larger with fluid bearings and PWM control. Relatively quiet.
  4. The pins are real metal screws instead of plastic and it does come with a backplate that is not shown.


The only problem is the aluminum edge on the bottom around the copper core was slightly sharp and protruded a bit. I assumed this would negatively affect my thermal paste application, so I took a small metal file and deburred it. You could probably manage to deburr it with a metal fingernail file. It took less than 5 minutes to fix this issue.

I ran 4.0 in Prime95 for 15 minutes and it was hovering around 90 degrees. During normal use, it runs around 50c.
