easy to install

eurotinker, Amazon

  • Summary: good replacement for stock intel cooler. it's very affordable and you don't need a backing plate to install it, which means you don't have to remove the motherboard from your case to install it. that saved me a lot of trouble.

this fan helps cool my system down reasonably well

  • Summary: After I changed CPU(LGA775 socket), this fan helps cool my system down reasonably well, without overclocking and all that extravagance, this thing won't disappoint, I guess.

  • Summary: The quality is excellent, but the installation was a horrible. I have a i3 2100 with a gigabyte motherboard, and ended up bending the plastic posts. Total Loss.

Too big for most installations

G. J. Baumbach, Amazon
6 September 2014
  • Summary: Performs well, but does not fit a majority of aftermarket motherboards due to close proximity of capacitors to the 775 socked. This is true of both older and newer 775 mobos--I've only see a few that it does fit on. If you don't have a good half inch clearance around the socket, steer clear.

  • Summary: I bought this to replace the old noisy fan. This fan is all but silent and the price was great. I recommend this product.

Quiet and works good

BL INC, Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: Bought this to replace the OEM Intel fan for my media system, because I could hear the "whining" sound when running my machine. Thought this would take care of the issue. It works fine and is quieter than before, but still some sound when movie scenes are silent. But, I can't expect a fan to be totally SILENT of course, so I understand. For pure silence, I would need a water cooler, but those are expensive.

Thank you to all previous reviewers...

MW in CO, Amazon

  • Summary: Being retired I needed a low-cost solution to a custom media server that I built in that the original CPU fan was noisy. Previous reviewers stated this replacement fan to be silent and efficient... It is both. I ordered two and both computers run between 5 ~ 10 degrees cooler and these fans are (practically) silent. I also noticed that the larger heat sink contributes to more gradual CPU temperature swings.

Works perfectly

Ian W., Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: I haven't had any issues with this cooler so far. The only trouble I had was fitting it on the motherboard correctly, but it all worked out in the end. The box that this comes in may look big, but it's actually really small (I know that's not important, but I just thought it was interesting). Great buy!
