Summary: I wasn't looking to overclock my Intel Core i5-4670K Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.4 GHZ 6 MB Cache - BX80646I54670K , but wanted an alternative to the anemic stock cooler. The fact that it's easy to install is also a plus. I did end up overclocking to 4 GHz just to see how it would perform. 35C idle, 62C on full load. When playing games the temperature is at a comfortable 43C.
Summary: Intentionally building my first computer ever, I didn't quite look into much research to find which CPU cooler would be the best but thanks to Amazon reviewers, you basically get the best public advice from some of the greatest experts or know it all's ^.^ (After balancing the soar loser reviews also, hah). Compared to a stock Intel i7 cpu cooler and this Artic Freezer 7 cooler, the results were said to be great deal more. Without complaining, I decided to go with this.
Summary: Keeps temps low even with overclocking a quad Q6600 processor. Great price / performance ratio. Simple install was a bonus. And already came with a quality TIM smoothly applied. Couldn't ask for more.
Summary: where it sits near to my computer. O.K., O.K, I'm exaggerating but... the crisp breeze generated by this monstrous fan, coupled with the gigantic heat sync should keep my CPU running nice and cool for until it dies of old age. I liked this SO much, I bought another for a second computer. Exceptional way to cool your CPU especially if you're an overclocker.
Summary: I first bought one of these for my home PC using a Q6600, it has worked great and is really quite, I like them so much we are re-doing our office PC's and I bought 3 to install in the office, I'm sure they will be a great replacement / upgrade.
Summary: BIOS has option for quiet fan and i left it OFF....Saw bad reviews but took the chance. Very Happy with this buy, I'm a tech so i am very critical about these things, I am running this on a intel Pentium Quad Q66....Cool and super quiet.
