Great Cooler

Charles Z., Newegg

  • Pros: I really can't complain. It's a great CPU cooler. It's quiet and it gets the job done really well. Works with AM3+ for those AMD users who are unsure. It keeps my FX-6300 under 45.
  • Cons: I had a problem with getting the clips on the board correctly, but I'm sure that was just me being foolish.

  • Pros: This thing is awsome! If installed correctly, it works great. You just gotta make sure you got just the right amount of heat sink compound on it, just a very thin layer ( o ya and make sure you get it down into the groves by the heat pipes.
  • Cons: The lock downs are a little flimsy, just be careful when you install, and all will be well.

I have 4 myself + put on for others

Paul E., Newegg

  • Summary: PLASTIC FROM THE BOTTOM BEFORE INSTALL.
  • Pros: Tried many after market fans. Many I just thrown away. This is by far the best cooling fan for AMD 4s, 6s, and 8s, Non-FX and FX too! Can be fliped in two directions with shape to put the heat left or right futher with the fins. Copper tube's clear most memory but could touch top of tall heat sinks on the closet dimm to the CPU; when installed tubes toward memory. Always worked anyway. Unless you like to play in the water with those water coolers....this is the best c...
  • Cons: ONLY ONE>>>>BE SURE TO REMOVE CLEAR SHIPPING

No problems at all.

Tymothy F., Newegg

  • Pros: Dropped temps by 15C at torture test load. Would likely be lower, but I keep my board managing my fan speed. Very quiet operation. No mounting issues at all! Orientation on my matx board has the heatsink aimed out over the northbridge heatsink, not the ram.
  • Cons: None really. Running like a champ keeping a slight OC nice and cool.

Excellent

  • Pros: Even though some people had hard time installing this, I didn't. I installed this on my ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 with AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition(unlocked to 3 cores) CPU. Of course, it would be really hard if motherboard is already installed.
  • Cons: None.

Bang for the Buck in a Compact Package

Matthew M., Newegg
13 March 2011
  • Summary: - Securing this fan in an AM3 socket is a royal PITA - at least it was for me. I sincerely wished at the time that I had another pair of hands to hold it in place. Good news is once locked, it isn't going anywhere.
  • Pros: + Manageable size; small enough to fit in modest cases, but powerful enough to do the job for most folks. Infinitely better than the scraps of Reynolds' Wrap AMD calls a heat sink and packages with Athlon IIs these days.
  • Cons: - Instructions are rather vague; just a piece of paper with pictures in a dozen languages.

  • Excerpt: Solid install - keeps my 4x Phenom II X4 945 at 27C cool with ambient room temps at 74 F. No Issues. Has a lot of cooling - also pushes some air over my North bridge chip's heat sink.
