Summary: I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap cooler who isn't going to be going to be pushing their computer too hard. Some people in the reviews say that it's not good for cpu intensive tasks but I have to disagree.
Pros: - Great Fan - Stays Quiet like the page says - Lower profile than most cpu coolers
Cons: - First one came broken but Newegg replaced it in a week - Hard to install
Summary: This is the best CPU fan I've ever had. I had a coolmaster in before this one and it died after a year of use. I had my husband replace the fan for me since I'm bad with judging things. This fan comes with amount of thermal paste on it already which makes it a quick install.
Summary: I picked this up to cool an AM2+ Athlon 64 5000 that had been unlocked to full quad-core operation. It fits nicely (though snugly) on the motherboard, the mounting clips tightened down with no problem.
Pros: Excellent price (especially when on sale). Nice, quiet Arctic Cooling fan. 4-pin PWM. Good quality thermal compound pre-applied.
Cons: Slightly large. Need to be careful with the mounting clips.
Summary: I did a previous review of this item with it cooling a Athlon X2 64 5600+(which it did Marvelously),so for others reference i decided to write a new review for a different CPU since I'm so pleased with this product .
Pros: -Able to Cool A Phenom II X4 925 Rev.2 95w to relatively decent Temperatures. To give you an estimation I'm able to Idle Around 28C and 45C at Full Load. -Quiet -Price
Cons: -More than Possible you will have to remove Mobo from case to get this thing in as clipping system AMD's use is a pain with this cooler when you can't see what your doing. -Possibility of RAM obstruction if your RAM is situated close to the CPU, so your measurements before purchasing.
Summary: This fan is only for AMD so if you're processor is Intel keep shopping. Install was a breeze, pop off the dead one, clean up the old thermal paste from the processor, and line it up, snap it in, tighten the screws, plug it in and WHAM! You're done! Best under $50 I have spent in a long time.
Pros: 1 - Price, very inexpensive 2 - Ease of install, took me less than 15 minutes 3 - Quiet, can't even hear it running 4 - Easily Outperforms the stock fan 5 - Makes me happy because I can play my games again!
