  • Summary: Its pretty big if you have a small board then you might want to think about this one, but if you done its perfect : ) My build is: CPU: Athlon 64 x2 4200+ Mobo: MSI 770T C45 GPU: GeForce Galaxy GTS 250 512mb Ram: 3 GB HDD: 1 TB
  • Pros: Keeps it at a cool 27c idle and about 40c full load.( I currently have a Athlon 64 x2 4200+ right now ) just simply amazing though, this is a must buy.
  • Cons: None at all.

Fits need exactly

Harrison O., Newegg

  • Summary: Converting MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 or Windows Media takes a lot of processing power.
  • Pros: I recently built an HTPC that uses an AMD Phenom 720 triple core processor (got a great deal on it and a motherboard). The stock cooler/fan is wholly inadequate. I don't overclock. When the cpu is running near max, the temp spikes dangerously, nearly reaching the max temp in the AMD specs, about ...
  • Cons: None so far.

Great CPU Cooler, Great Price

John C., Newegg
19 March 2010
  • Summary: Read the instructions before trying to install. I used Speedfan (freeware) to verfiy the temps and then to tweak the fan down to 50% of max rpm to get the fan to almost absolute silent. I then added Speedfan to my startup programs so it automatically launches and adjusts my fan.
  • Pros: Great Price for a deadly silent quiet CPU cooler. Without configuration, it runs at about your average noise level but once you tweak it with SpeedFan, I had this thing running completely silent with excellent cooling. Inside my microATX case it does look descent and doesn't take up any necessary...
  • Cons: It was a bit tricky to install this CPU fan onto a AMD board (while the mobo was already installed in the case) as the fan and collar assembly overhang the latching areas on the board. It required some finger work and a flat tip screw driver to gently attach it to the board. To me, that isn't a c...

GREAT COOLER!!!

Matthew M., Newegg
10 March 2010
  • Summary: First thing to remember is to clean the processor of ALL old compoud. You can get buy with Q-tips, alcohol, and a lot of patience. If there is a ton of old grease, try using a matchbook cover to scrape it away. This will not hurt the processor and will save you a ton of time and Q-tips.
  • Pros: Cheap! And with free shipping a no brainer! Very quiet-cannot hear running with AMD processor. Dropped my cpu temp 9-10 degrees C (AMD Athlon X2 5200). Prior to install 45C now 30C-35C under load. Easy install on an AMD. Plenty of thermal compound included. Would reccomend if you have an AMD proc...
  • Cons: Not really a big issue, but...there can be parts on the mobo that interfere with the latch going all the way down. Simply test fit once the processor is clean and BEFORE you apply new compound. You can bend the latch a little to clear parts, just remove it bend a little and check it again. DO NOT...

By All Means

John L., Newegg
5 March 2010
  • Summary: I researched long and hard before this choice. I was concerned about cooling efficiancy. But this fan, thus far, exceeds my hopes. A side note to anyone having heat issues, I suggest you buy Arctic Silver, (no affiliation), or any good thermal grease.
  • Pros: Get this fan if your on the fence. I'm MCSE and have been A+ cert for almost fifteen years, and have seen far more than my fair share of fans. This is one of the better ones. On my Athlon 64 X2 socket 939, it took me eight minutes from taking the old fan off, wiping the dye, smearing a new coat o...
  • Cons: There's the tiniest bit of high speed whine, if it wasnt there, I would say this fan is perfect. That said, I have yet to find the perfect fan.

Unbelievably efficient

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Instructions aren't as easy to understand as they could be, make sure you understand them before proceeding and it will be easy to install.
  • Pros: Very easy to install on my AM2, super quiet, very effective cooling. Idle CPU temperature went from 44 Celcius to 31.
  • Cons: None so far.

Wow - great fan

Anonymous, Newegg
20 January 2010
  • Summary: I haven't monitored temperature on it but it seems to be doing it's job just fine because the mobo keeps the fan spinning slower than full. Using it on a core 2 duo in a media center PC and it's so quiet you can't even tell it's on - which is exactly why I bought it.
  • Pros: Super quiet! I can't even tell the PC is on with this thing. Easy to install, especially considering the "universal" style. Pretty low profile too, I've used coolers that were 2.5x the height of this before.
  • Cons: None. I guess it's possible that it could overhang and hit a nearby component for some motherboards - mine extends just over a chipset heatsink on my motherboard, but I didn't have any problems.
