£42.95 FOR THOSE WITH FREE SHIPPING

This is a great price for a brilliant cpu cooler. Everywhere else has this for nearly 60 quid. I know OCUK charge like 9 quid for delivery, but for those with free delivery this is a great price.

SCMG-5100, 120mm Fan, Socket Compatibility: Intel 775/ 115x/ 1366/ 2011/ 2066, AMD Socket AM2, Socket AM2+, Socket AM3, Socket AM3+, Socket AM4, Socket FM1, Socket FM2, Socket FM2+

Performs almost on par with the Noctua D15 which costs £70.

Can someone add info to the opening post that this is available for £42.95 if you have free shipping. I don't like how that price is not displayed as some people will qualify for free shipping.
I've got this, but the dual fan silent version.

Big plus is that it doesn't obstruct RAM slots at all.

Happy with it on my Ryzen 3700X, keeps it cool completely silently.

What temls/volts we looking at
Sub 75 degrees. 7nm is hard to keep cool due to heat density. Stock volts which ranges from sub 1.3 all core load to 1.45V idle.

Boosts are good, hitting 4.4ghz and above.

1.45v idle? That's a typing error surely 1.45v is way too much.
Nope no typo. Ryzen does some very odd stuff with voltages.

It uses brief high peaks to achieve the highest boost clocks.

Heat added. I got the one I posted a while back: hotukdeals.com/dea…868

It's been running fine since being installed in my new build. Was an easy install too.
I recently replaced a stock with this: amazon.co.uk/ARC…8-1

Crazy good for the money at £35 (albeit a tad fiddly to install without removing the motherboard from your case, even with the rear socket area exposed). Super quiet and over 30 degrees C under torture cooler

I saw on the old mugen deal someone posted about that. Never heard of it and to be fair in past arctic coolers were never all that. However reviews on that freezer 34 sound decent. I've ordered the normal freezer 34 esports since I already have decent rad fans. I'm hoping the single 34 esports has clips for two fans in the box though
How does this compear to the dark rock pro 4

Yeah I wanted to go with the Noctua DH14 but didn't have the height clearance and this looked worth a shot based on some very solid reviews (both in terms of performance, noise and ease of installation). Most reviews highlight the faffing with the fan clips (and its warranted, easily remedied by holding the point the clip goes into the tower as you pulled the clip into the fan lug) but the mounting is super easy and the performance seems amazing for the price (and backed with a good warranty too). Cant comment on the single fan version (if the extra clips arent included) but I cant imagine the second fan has a MASSIVE impact, especially at such close proximity to the case exhaust fan.

one thing that might be handy for you is the fan fitted as the pull has some rubber spaces to offset it ever so slightly from the tower, you might need to incorporate something similar (apparently it avoids fan whistle/rattle due to the offside of the fan blades being so close to the tower without the space)

Well the duo is 34.99 so an extra 10 quid for a fan I don't need seems unnecessary. It only cost me 15 quid for the single fan one as I had 10 quid credit in my account.

Also matteee I have some small rubber rings that I've used in the past on my water cool radiators for fans so I'll probably just use these!

This performs slightly worse, but doesnt overhang the RAM sockets.

Hey, I also have this on my 3700x, if you are able to put the AMD Cool n Quiet feature on your motherboard, switch it on, it makes a massive difference to the average volts, especially when not gaming my volts stay around 1.0v and that makes the CPU cooler as well. I hit around 60-65 degrees when gaming on CPU intensive games, with a custom CPU fan curve as the default curve is quite poor for gaming.

I have this paired with a Ryzen 7 3700x, and previously it was on my i5 6600k, it is a great CPU cooler but I have to admit, due to the Ryzen 7 running a little hotter than I was expecting, I think I would rather shell out extra money for a dual fan Noctua CPU cooler (not in to water cooling). The fan on this CPU cooler only goes up to 1200RPM, which is really quiet but I feel this processor needs a higher RPM to stay cool while gaming. When doing anything but gaming it is virtually silent and sits at around 35 degrees..
I feel this cooler would suit the Ryzen 3 and 5 series more to be honest. I will stick to the cooler and maybe set up a dual fan config by picking up a second Scythe fan from their site for around £15.

I bought it from your deal haha thanks man!
This is so random, it has been this price for like the past year at least
Do these run good on the single fan or do you need to buy another fan?
