Great Cooler!

Cassandra N., Newegg
27 August 2014
  • Summary: Great cooler, isn't too loud, for the price you can't beat it!
  • Pros: Cools a lot better than the stock Intel cooler. Doesn't take up too much space. Comes with pre-applied thermal paste. Not very loud to my standards.
  • Cons: Collects dust fairly fast, after a month of ownership it had a fair amount of dust on it, and in it. But with regular cleaning, it doesn't matter.

Great But You better buy Thermal paste

Cathy S., Newegg
15 July 2014
  • Pros: Great fan and heat sink easy install and cools very well
  • Cons: Thermal paste wasn't shipped in as displayed in picture. If I hadn't purchased thermal paste with the fan it would have been useless

Good but has some issues

Harold H., Newegg
7 May 2014
  • Summary: I still recommend this fan even with the small issue of the design being very easy to break.
  • Pros: I had this fan and heatsink for well over two years. It has worked well, kept my CPUs at a reasonable temp. It's quiet too. They send some thermal paste which is a nice touch.
  • Cons: The plastic fan housing can be a bit flimsy. I very easily broke the plastic hooks that snap in and hold the fan onto the bottom part of the plastic cover when I tried to clean it. It still works but it's not connected as well as it should be. Granted I had it for over two years but it could have been made a bit better.

A solid, little cooler

Paul D., Newegg
12 April 2013
  • Summary: I really like this unit. It's generally an excellent performer. But it does get dusty very quickly. It also gets quite loud under load - especially when gaming. Unfortunately, over time, the fan just kind of decided to go werewolf and howl all the time. My first one lasted about four years before the fan started getting loud enough for my wife to complain. I ordered another, only used the fan and it's like it was when it was new.
  • Pros: Small footprint, Back-plate security and precision, decent cooling, relatively quiet for most of its life at low load.
  • Cons: Fins get very dusty very quickly, reducing cooling seemingly overnight. The fan can degrade over time until it howls and it DOES get a bit loud when under high or sustained load.

Quiet

Zachariah S., Newegg
25 May 2012
  • Summary: Do not attempt PC building whilst consuming bacon.
  • Pros: Quiet, Really guys. I don't know what some people are talking about when they say it is loud. Maybe it is their power supply fan being loud because this fan is so quiet they have nothing else to listen to. Also this is a great option for you guys upgrading your grama's compaq presario. The OEM motherboard that those came with works perfect with this because it already has a bracket installed underneath the motherboard. So you just have to screw this one down(no mother...
  • Cons: Was a tad trick screwing the mounting screws in but it was secure in the end.

I wish all heatsinks were this easy

Sidarth D., Newegg
20 May 2012
  • Summary: When idle, the fan cant' be heard with the case fans turned on. Under high load the sound is audible, but isn't a high pitched whine. Its more like the whooshing of air with a slight mechanical tinge. Not unpleasant like previous heatsinks I've had.
  • Pros: I resurrected an old machine to run as a server and accidentally broke the annoying plastic pins off my old heat sink. I specifically got this heatsing because it uses screws instead of those plastic pins. It was ridiculously easy to install. The fan is not loud either.
  • Cons: None yet!

not what i paid for.

Michael B., Newegg
12 February 2012
  • Summary: i love newegg, never had a problem with them. always fast and at a reasonable price. the pictures and description was off a little bit on this one. this is the FIRST negative review i've ever done.
  • Pros: the fan works as its supposed to, keeping machine cool as hoped.
  • Cons: thermal paste wasn't shipped in bottle as picture provides. thermal paste is placed on the heatsink; normally would have been a great idea. the bracket/heatsink didn't fit my board like i expected.. wait, at all. i snapped in everything as obvious as it was. hooked up machine. got strange beeping noises. unhooked took out, noticed that none of the thermal paste was changed, then after closer inspection, it wasn't touching at all, large gap from between the cpu and hea...

User Review

Cody M., Newegg

  • Summary: Recommended =)
  • Pros: Huge upgrade from the cheap fan i use to have. The previous one had plastic clips to hold it to the mobo, this one has metal screws that go into a supporting backplate which help keep it on
  • Cons: None.... so far
