Summary: mine was not an AMD stock cooler like the picture shows. its a knock off/after market and a bad one at that. much smaller and shorter than stock coolers, but needed the 4 pin to get fan control back after changing out main board from a 3 pin to a 4 pin.
Summary: There's not much to say about a fan other than when it fails. If I had any down point, it would be that the heat sink could stand to be taller and give me a couple of degrees more cooling, but it works and keep the cpu in the save temp range.
Summary: The item arrived on time. I'm satisifed with the packing. I built a tower and used this fan. So far, it does the job. It's not too fancy or expenseive. I haven't encountered overheating message from the BIOS bootup yet. I don't use this computer for gaming. So, I guess, this fan is doing its job.
Summary: I have a gaming pc that I use this unit on. And I can tell you that it runs so smooth and quiet. It beats some of these much more expensive after market units you can buy. If you are building a gaming pc on a budget then this unit will more than suffice.
