20 bucks after coupon code. I ordered for a project and will update how it performs. Don't know if it comes with a socket 1700 bracket for you alderlake folks.

Edit:

It looks like I already owned this cooler in the past. Must have bought it from eBay back then, remember performing well with a Ryzen 9 3900X I believe.

CPU cooler at 20 bucks is a steal!!!!!!!! Keeps up with a 12900KF at 200 watts, I have it tweaked to have a all core boost of 4.8 on the big cores and 3.8 on the little ones (40 ring). Maxing out at 77C after a 10min loop of CB23. It gets hotter if I loop TimeSpy, at 15mins the hottest core gets to 82C. But that is due because my 6900XT air cooled is dumping a lot of heat since hot spot hits 90C.

Does have one drawback, does not come with mounting hardware for socket 1700. I had to mod the 115X/1200 bracket with a dremel to work.

So I went down a rabbit hole because I was impressed for the price. Very well built cooler, but I also ordered this one to see how it does.


A dual tower 120mm cooler, 25 bucks why not.

If these do halfway decent I don't see them staying at such low prices.

Edit: ordered one of those as well.
Did you get the pccooler heatsink
yet? Just wondering how it would do with a 7940x?

Yes I have it on hand, I haven't tried it on my 7940x because it's under water ATM. However I could try it on my 7920x?
Oh no, don't go out of the way, just thought those were your plans.

Let me know when you get the gelid, mine seemed to get lost in transit. Might have to wait a few more days for that one.

The 7920x is run at stock and I just broke it down to go in another case. So I could test it there. The 7940x is delid and liquid metal with orig ihs back on it.

I'm in the process of setting up another loop but it may work better if I just put it on my 5900x since it's already on a aio. I should run a bunch of tests before I change coolers.

I installed it on my 7920x, it only appears to support cpu sockets with mouting kit. 1366/115x/775/2066/2011/am4/am3/fm2. The mounting kit is a big tricky, but the fan clips were the hardest for me to understand how they work lol. Had to view the picture on the amazon page to figure it out, or the one on the box as the instructions were tiny and not specific enough for my old brain.

This may be a good cooler to test on my FX 9590 with a tdp of 220w as well. Lets see how it does on the 7920x first. Ill post some results once i have the machine back together maybe tomorrow.

Finally got the build back together completely. Did some quick testing and I am only using the fan that came with the cooler for now to see how it does out of the box. I am getting low 70s on one core and rest are in 60s while running CPUz stress for about 5 min. I didn't get much time but it actually seems to be working fairly well. I will do some overclocking on it also to test. Keep in mind this 7920x is not a delid so it's Intel inside pigeon poop edition to boot.

For 20$ it's looking like a steal!!

Also got the gelid in, it's huge! I will try to test it also soon. I am not sure how well the gelid will do since there is some aluminum between heat pipes.on the CPU contact plate. Definitely want to see how it does.

That's awesome news!!! I will be installing it on a 7960X. I will delid and use liquid metal. I was impressed it handled a 12900K fine. I did upgrade the fan, I had a pair (actually two pairs) of some Cooler Master fans and have them in push and pull and this allows it to run 5.0 on p cores with e cores disabled or the original speeds I posted on a earlier post and got a 3 degree drop.

As far as the gelid, I never got mine and got refunded since the original seller sold out. Got lost in transit and now it is 40 bucks by another retailer.

Will be good to see your results, but based on the 12900k it sounds like it is already proved its worth. IF anyone looking for a cheap cooler can still get it with code for 20$ they should get it. I mean i recalled spending what 30$ on a hyper 212 and it barely kept up with mild OC's. OF course it's been that long since i've bought a heatsink, since then i was getting cheap AIO's.

Maybe we should make a thread on these cheaper coolers, where we can test against AIO's, other air coolers, and watercooling and see how they hold up overall. Really for the price i wasn't expecting much if at all.

Edit: The base on this PCcooler GI-R66 looks to be plated with nickel or something? I am not sure how liquid metal would react with it.

EDIT 2: Sorry double posted
here are some pics of the Gelid, it feels fairly light compared to the PCcooler GI-R66, i am referring to the actual heatsink with no fans.

here are some pics, there is only a slight small strip of aluminum down the center, the heat pipes are side by side. So it will be interesting how it fairs.

You for 25 bucks it does not look bad either. Might be a good option for Ryzen since the heatpipes are in pairs of three. Three heatpipes per chiplet. Sucks I never got mine to experiment.

Thanks for the pics since I never got mine. But regardless the PCCooler is still 20 bucks and prob the best bargain out there.
