Excerpt: This started to immediately keep my system cooler. I have not gotten a single heat warning since it was installed.<br /><br />The installation was not nearly as easy as I had expected, but it was worth the effort. I actually had to remove one of my case fans due to the size of the heat sink, but even with the loss of that, it's cooling better than my old one.
Excerpt: I purchased this fan for my build, upon opening the package I was fairly surprised to see that it was larger than my hand. The fan works very well however I had to rearrange my RAM to get everything to fit.
Excerpt: A great cooling fan, very quiet and powerful. I recommend measuring your case before purchase, for me the heat sink is so tall it touches the case door. This does not short the CPU but it may cause noise or other problems depending on the case you are using.
Summary: The heatsink & fan is doing it's job. On a AMD Quad 4 3.0 Mhz not over clocked the CPU is running at 100 degrees for the last 24 hours. The only complaint I had was that you had to take out the motherboard to install the unit.
Summary: You will need more clearance in your case for this fan than your typical one, it stands upright as shown in the picture and it's deceptively large. Installation requires access to the back of the motherboard to attach nuts to the screws. Overall it's one of the easiest to install CPU fans I've come across. CPU temperature is sitting at a cool 25c right now.
Summary: I think this product came in a timely matter after having ordered it over the internet. The product was well packaged. It was universal and contained all the pieces required for most motherboards available. The product was fairly straight forward to install. The instruction manual is a tad difficult to grasp at first glance. It performs very well, it barely makes a sound. It runs around 750-1000 rpm and can go upwards of 2000 rpm so for half speed it performs good.
