  • Summary: Can't get any drivers that work with Windows 7. Have to use floppy power connector to get power to the card. Use for XP or Vista.

  • Summary: It cools just ok, but it sounds like a jet plane when it spools up. I wouldn't buy another one.

Works fine, but stil noisy

Pailott, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: Bought this to replace the stock Intel fan on my old processor, as the old fan was VERY VERY noisy (like a jet plane warming up as I saw someone say online), but this one is noisy as well, not as bad but still noisy. I do not understand why fans for my newer processors are so quiet and these are so noisy. Nice product but disappointing in the noise department.

  • Summary: Used as a replacement for a wobbly, noisy old fan. Push pins worked fine. The fan is quiet and my CPU temps are stable. No problems at all.

You get what you pay for.

  • Summary: I bought this to replace a dead fan. The bracket that the dead fan to screw in to was the only bracket that I had. The new fan does not come with a bracket so I had to remove the push pins on the new bracket (Cut them off) and put the old screws on from the old fan. I was lucky that the old fan used E clips to hold the pins in place. Other than that the fan is quiet and keeping my CPU cool. This does come with thermal grease so you do not need to buy thermal grease.

excellent product

  • Summary: This cooling fan arrived promptly and installed easily without any issues. I used the thermal gel that was unexpectedly included with the fan which hastened the installation. Running nicely quiet and my motherboard is quite happy.

Great Value

  • Summary: My old fan had to be replaced. It was making so much noise, driving me crazy. I could hear it 30 feet away. This was a great replacement at a fabulous price. It took my son about 10 minutes to do the replacement job. This fan came with the thermal gel. We did order some, but it wasn't needed. I wish they had said so in the description, would have saved me a few bucks! This fan is much quieter than the old one, but it is not silent by any means.

Noisy

  • Summary: I bought this to replace a VERY noisy CPU fan. The price was right, and the noise is less, but I think it's certainly not as quiet as the description would suggest. It works, and it installed easily, but it's not 'quiet'.

Little hard to install

  • Summary: The pins are hard to seat. The first two times I tried, I wasn't able to get it fully seated. I was afraid that I would break the clips off. Eventually, I got it to work. Works fine! The CPU runs at 45C.
