Exactly what I was looking for.

Ian K., Newegg
15 February 2015
  • Summary: Cheap, low cost option that works better than the fans of old, made by Intel, and it is extremely lightweight and the build quality was top notch. I used it in conjunction with Arctic Silver 5 Thermal paste.
  • Pros: This is great for new LGA 2011 processors including the V3 series, my i7 5930k is sitting at 33 Celsius as I type this and it's quiet as can be. This thing does what it is meant to do, air cool the CPU, and with the efficiency of newer processors you really don't need liquid cooling to get great ...
  • Cons: Absolute Zero (Absolutely zero, had to make a temperature related pun.)

  • Summary: Ran Prime 95 on this system for over 24 hours and the CPU (i7-hex core) temp never went over 76 degrees.
  • Pros: inexpensive. approved by Intel. works.
  • Cons: won't impress your water-cooling , over-clocking friends.

Works great with 130 watt i7 Extreme

Mr. BBQ, Amazon
17 September 2014
  • Summary: Despite the very un-cool aspect (sorry for the pun) of putting a "stock" cooler on a $1K processor, this cooler is very capable and quiet. I put this on an i7-4860X (130 Watt), and with "BurnIn Test" running all cores at 100% for 10 minutes, no core got over 71C, with the average in the upper 60's.

Keep it simple

Charles Taylor "Professional Nerd", Amazon
17 August 2014
  • Summary: Sometimes simplicity is the best solution. After experimenting with a fancy and expensive water cooling solution that ultimately failed. I got this as a temporary solution. Hah! It works better than the water cooler ever did. Way, way better.

Worked great

J. Stewart "TheRealStubot", Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: This fan/heatsink worked very well on my standard clocked 4820 CPU. I replaced it though when, during the summer, the ambient temp in the house began to rise to 26c and cpu temps began to rise to the 64c mark.

Extreme value

S. warner, Amazon
29 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this heatsink to replace a Corsair H80i which was taking up WAY too much space in an NZXT phantom case. I do not really overclock my CPU (Core i7 4930-K) as I feel it is powerful enough at the stock turbo speeds for my gaming needs.
