Thanks for the review! I never even knew about this product. I think it would really appeal to microATX box users.

While the performance aspect of the review is excellent, I have a couple of suggestions. One is to stress the wattage limit does not cover all CPU's available for the sockets it can be used on. The other is a request for more detailed measurements. Since this is a physically small cooler, it will attract system builders with challenging form factors looking for better-than-stock cooling. Knowing up front whether it will fit or not would be nice.

Newegg has two versions listed, this one and RR-H101-22FK-RA . The "I" suffix version seems to be for Intel and the "A" for AMD, and some reviews say as much, but the review here indicates both types of mounting hardware are included.

I find it curious that the "I" has 5 reviews and the "A" has over 100. That probably has to do with AMD being the "value" choice and this being a value product, or perhaps the "I" version is just newer? Or is the "I" superceding the "A" and covering both types?

Hangfire: per the manufacturer, it is 117mm high ( 83.5 x 68 x 117 mm ) and weighs 315 grams.

Thanks for the suggestion, we will include full measurements in the next reviews.
