Good fan for gaming but not CPU intensive stuff.

Anonymous, Newegg
6 January 2016
  • Summary: Fan was made to be more quiet than to handle instensive things.
  • Pros: Fan is much more quiet than be stock fan and can barely or not hear it while over a voice chat which is good for me. Can handle gaming fine. Temps: Idle temp at around 64-70°F if not doing anything. Doing something is around 80-100°F. Gaming 100-130°F.
  • Cons: Can NOT handle anything CPU intensive whatsoever. Overheated at least 2 times somewhere at my auto shutdown at 190°F. <.< When I unboxed it one of the 4 pieces connecting the fan and its grate thingy to the radiator was broken. (Couldn't see a real problem with it being broke, if 2 were broke tha...

  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I had ordered this aftermarket cpu cooler to replace my stock amd fan, item came with a fan blade broken off and the blade guard as well was in pieces. Would be nice for newegg to do some quality control on these products before selling them.

Good heatsink, but not for everything

Bonnie Y., Newegg
29 June 2015
  • Summary: For quad or hex cores on a gaming computer, I could see this being great. Worked fine when I played most games. Literally thought my computer was broken on start up because of how little noise this thing made. However, for sustained loads on an octo core, probably not the best choice.
  • Pros: Incredibly quiet. It was quiet enough that I chose to just run it on max the entire time because it honestly didn't create much extra noise.
  • Cons: Can't handle everything, and I realize that was my own fault in retrospect for choosing the budget heat sink. Running an FX8320 CPU in my build for chess calculations, and it couldn't handle it under full load. Thought the problem was my thermal paste or perhaps improper air flow, but after swapp...

Bad shipping

Mike N., Newegg
24 June 2015
  • Summary: If it wasn't for the broken fan blade, I would rate it 5 stars. It's keeping my FX 6300 CPU at 35-40C in normal operations. I haven't tested the temperature yet during gaming. The fan is very quiet compared to the stock fan that came with the CPU. Again, it's an OK fan as far as I can tell.
  • Pros: It was very easy to install despite my small computer case. Fits perfectly well. Very quiet as advertised.
  • Cons: One of the fan blade was broken. I didn't want to waste money to ship it back and have it replaced so I just super glued it back on. It seems to be working fine now. I had some trouble wiping the pre-applied thermal paste. First time doing it so I suppose it was mostly my fault.

terrible

Fahryn H., Newegg
2 June 2015
  • Summary: Prolly should of read the reviews, just as many poor reviews as good ones I will stay away from this brand from now on. will seek a refund, really upset because i paid for a 3 day shipping as well...
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: Well, the fan arrived missing one of the plastic spikes that jut out of it that are supposed to hold the fan in place, I do not know if it is because that is missing or just poor design but this fan is NOT quite, it is very noisy and the fan keeps clipping the heat sink making a horrid noise when...
