I was not Happy with the cheap plasic
3 December 2013
Summary: item did not work - it made my system shutdown and not power up - I have owned A few & this was not the same part in the pic - I got A cheap non working part - the plasic was cheap and breakable by heat - if any thing I got A used one as new
Summary: I don't write many reviews. In fact I think this is only my second or third. So i have to be impressed by something to take action. Anyway, I easily installed this fan into a non tower type, flat sitting, six year old IBM Thinkcenter computer that I had picked up refurbished some time ago. Even though this fan was designed for a regular tower PC it locked into the IBM's back slot on one side with ease.
Summary: This is a more powerful fan than just a square mounted case fan. You can really feel the air moving out from this blower. I have it mounted obove my viedo card. If I remember the before temp correctly then it is about 4-5 degrees Celsius cooler. Nice and cool. Very easy to Install.
Summary: This purchase was made out of a last-ditch effort to save an ongoing project to push the limits of my Dell Inspiron 570. After upgrading the CPU and video card, the core temp was reaching 80c under heavy use. A huge heatsink for the processor and upgraded case fan still had it running unsafe temps at times. I purchased this item, along with an adapter to use my open SATA connector to remedy the lack of a 4-pin power source.
Summary: My gpu didnt come with a fan, poor thing was running at 69 c too. So i decided it was time to step in. I got this fan mainly for the name behind it. I simply put it in the pci slot next to it, rerouted some power to it, and was up and running. My gpu runs at 40c overclocked now. Im extremely happy with this fan. Do note when placed in the pci slot the intake (where you want the gpu) is on the right side.
Summary: For what it does, it does it well for a good price. The sucks hot air out of my computer while being less noisy than my power-supply fan. The PSU plugs are also nice and slick, so it's easy to plug into or remove.
Summary: My desktop is an XP with an AMD Athlon 64X2 dual core 5200 2.71GHZ speed 3GB RAM. I have installed a XFX ATI HD 5670 1 GB DDR5 graphics card. My desktop runs cool and I can feel the air being expelled from the fan It's winter now and I keep my house temp. at 65 degrees. My system probably didn't really need the fan (maybe more so during the summer), but I look at it as insurance against over heating and at this price, one should conceder installing one.
Summary: I purchased this product in June. The product I received did not look like the picture nor did it have Antec listed anywhere on the product. Despite my questions regarding its authenticity I installed it in my PC below the graphics card (which had been overheating during Bad Company 2). It worked great until October. At this time it started making a loud grinding noise when operating.
Summary: This is a great little cooler. It is completely out of the way in my case. It removes a good amount of hot air around my graphics card and doesn't make much noise. I've had it for 9 months now and no issues! My last no-brand blower started making awful vibrations and eventually quit working, this one is still going!
