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".
  • Cons: Can't think of a single con.

Works Well

michael k., Newegg

  • Summary: I think this is a good option if you need a low profile solution even though it could easily be better.
  • Pros: Works as expected and quieter then I expected.
  • Cons: The contact area of the heat sink isn't ground its just milled off with a fly cutter which is easily noticed, and i know from experience that fly cutters don't leave a very flat surface.

  • Pros: I used this heat sink for a case mod project I was doing where I had very limited vertical room. I put this cooler on a micro itx board and had no problems with the installation. When all was said and done the top of the heat sink is level with the top of the RAM. I could not be more pleased with the size and the cooling power of this heat sink. It keeps my Q6600 quad core at a 32C and about 55C under load. Very good considering the lack of airflow and open space in m...
  • Cons: Its very loud.

Quality control issues

Edward B., Newegg
23 January 2009
  • Summary: If you buy them, put it on the processor as if it was a final assembly with all screws correctly tighten. Then take it out to check teh paste. If the remaining paste over the processor is not evenly spread and very thin, I would RMA the heatsink, as it will not work as it should.
  • Pros: Good, when it's well made. Small, solid, reasonably priced and cools down a E8400 much better than the Intel stock.
  • Cons: Dynatron needs to enhance their quality control system as I got the last two heatsinks with a uneven surface.

something besides pushpins

w a seawright, super biiz
25 December 2008
  • Summary: For anyone who has had to use a retail fan you know the problem with pushpins. For a fan that will keep my Intel 8400 cool you want get a better fan then this one which runs a 30c under load. Like always Ewiz is quick to deliver.

  • Summary: it is a must have for the APEX MI-008 Black Steel Mini-ITX Tower. the processor is right under the power supply and the standard heatsink and fan will not fit
  • Pros: It is a pretty small heatsink and fan combo.
  • Cons: on start up it is pretty noisy because it goes to its full speed and slows down afterward.

Excellent 1U Server Heatsink

justin c., Newegg
23 July 2008
  • Summary: When installing this heatsink in a 1U server, the installation is a little different from a normal stock heatsink. There are no manual or instructions on the Dynatron website, however if you call their tech support they will be able to help. I learned that when installing this heatsink, you pickup the motherboard and place the provided plate / bracket underneath the motherboard (so it is between the motherboard and the bottom of your case) and match the screw holes up...
  • Pros: Excellent active heatsink for 1U server use. It is the only active heatsink available from Dynatron for 1U server use. They also have two passive heatsinks available as well.
  • Cons: None at all.
