Excerpt: Was incredibly simple to install even for a novice like myself. Ordered Arctic silver to go with it. My CPU runs much cooler than it did with the old CPU/stock heatsink. It's massive but that's okay.
Excerpt: Quiet fan at low speed. Keeps my E8400 at 23 degrees C (idle). Might only raise 15 degrees beneath pressure and the fan in no way wants to speed up. Very good strong mount. Emits a slight electrical buzz at low speeds, but it's greater than obtaining noise of the fan going full speed.
Excerpt: Whisper quiet, and keeps the CPU at around 35 degrees. That's all I ask for out of a fan! None Not doing any overclocking. Just constructed the Pc for my sister, and it'll get some fantastic use.
Excerpt: Decent shipping for vacation season. Uncomplicated to install like the back plate much much better then stock. Haven't utilised to verify temps but I am confident they will be okay. Louder then I expected about the same as the stock.
Excerpt: Quiet, keeps CPU cool, fits in the Shuttle KPC 45 case. Be careful on installation in the KPC 45 b/c there are some surface mounted components (on the bottom of the board) in the way (not adequate of a deterrent to remain away from this HSF).
Excerpt: I originally suffered by way of mounting the stock Intel fan and it was an unpleasant ordeal. I got this as a affordable replacement and have been really pleased with the result. The mounting technique is vastly superior to Intel's. Do yourself a favor and don't use the stock Intel fans.
Excerpt: This issue is keeping my E7600 three.06gHz Core two Duo at 35C idle and 47C under full load. Mind you, I literally just installed this about an hour and a half ago, so it will only drop down when the Arctic Silver 5 sets in.
Excerpt: Performs as nicely as the quad core heatsink, so a tiny better than stock fan. Could be less costly, does call for bracket, and doesn't cool as properly as other copper heatsink. If this item had free shipping and under 24.99, then it's a steal.
