Big flow, little size

Alan P., Newegg
31 May 2012
  • Summary: I got this because I wanted to put my old Q6600 in a miniATX HTPC case (Silverstone MILO) My existing Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro wouldn't fit and niether would most other fans I had. Stock intel BARELY fit but didn't leave room for cabling. To me the benefits of the low profile are well worth the increase in noise at times.
  • Pros: Best low profile fan I've found for high TDP processors. Responsive, throttles up and down smoothly.
  • Cons: It'll get loud when it needs to. At 5000 RPM it sounds like a turbine, but that's to be expected. If you've ever worked with a server fan before you know you trade low-profile for noise and due to it's small footprint it's got to throttle up when the heat comes on. That said, at full load on my Q6600 using Y-Cruncher 1B the fan never gets above 3800RPM (75% workload) and the CPU never gets above 53C. Good news is, rarely is it cranking that hard so on average it's bee...

Great fan for 775 CPUs

Mark S., Newegg
18 May 2011
  • Summary: I use this same fan on another Intel 775 chip with no issues.
  • Pros: Low profile, inexpensive, already has thermal "paste". Seems to be working for my Intel Xeon 3075 (LGA775) in a 2RU case just fine. Up and running for the past month with no issues.
  • Cons: Can't think of a single con.

Remarkable Device

Frank G., Newegg
23 December 2009
  • Summary: very efficient heat transfer mechanics
  • Pros: Device well built, Heat sink to CPU mating very good allover. I Have a APEX M105 mini itx case with a E8400 CPU at 3.6 Ghz CPU temp runs about 60 C when playing games and 45 at idle. Only fan heat sink combo that would fit MB and case. Fan runs under PWM at 3000 RPM and can barely hear it. Just bought 2 more for more mini itx projects.
  • Cons: None for this model but use caution if buying the T195 model as it uses the push pin hold down system and is very hard to apply properly.

Just OK

Boris B., Newegg
9 December 2009
  • Summary: I had this thing installed with a E8400 CPU on a Zotac 9300 MoBo, in a Mini-ITX case. The CPU kept overheating when ever you tried to do anything more then browse the net.
  • Pros: Small, low profile, easy to install. Good for older less powerful CPUs.
  • Cons: The fan setup has problems removing the hot air from the processor. Seems like the air exhaust hole for the fan is just to small to push enough air through it.

Perfect 1U Fan

Anonymous, Newegg
6 September 2009
  • Summary: All it all it is a perfect 1U server fan. Ignore any of the reviews that say it is too loud or that it does not work right. All of these are using the fan in the wrong place. This unit is for servers that are in a data center or server room with proper air flow systems.
  • Pros: Excellent 1U server fan Solid copper construction and tight mounting system make for quick installs and good temps on servers
  • Cons: Comes with that cheap thermal paste already on the block
