easiest CPU cooler to install for intel - similar to AMD clip on ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am used to the simple AMD clip on coolers

Do any exist for intel ?

Clip-on Intel coolers are usually low end or stock heatsinks. I would recommend those if you want ease of use, but any Noctua heatsink will both perform well and be very easy to install (no clip-on) though.

Clip-on:

Noctua (no clip-on):

Decent cooling for its size, nothing compared to a noctua, but cheap and has push pins.

better than any push-pin cooler that I know of.

100% installation from the front. No back plate installation. No need to access rear side of motherboard.

On AMD, mounts same as the stock cooler.

On Intel, first insert a plastic ring. Then, attach cooler to plastic ring.
The plastic ring coverts the motherboard mount from Intel to AMD style mount.

On this forum, I have read about someone who was not able to install the plastic ring on their Intel motherboard because something on the motherboard blocked the ring. Just warning you.
