The IS-55 is very powerful LP cooler that has been designed with focus on LGA1700 & AM5. It has good build quality and simple; effective mounting system.
In pursuit of performance, the IS-55 has a downside which it’s limited to RAM or motherboard I/O shield height of 33mm. This rules out using the I/O side on majority of LGA1700 Mini-ITX motherboards and has very limited RAM compatibility for both DDR4 & DDR5.
We are not of personal fans of RGB on coolers, and would recommend switching the stock fan for NF-A12x15 or Scythe Kaze Flex II Slim for more streamline and minimal appearance.
