Summary: If you had 5 bucks, and Chuck Norris had 5 bucks, Chuck Norris would have 10 bucks.
Pros: Have had it on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor for over a year with no issues. Fan is still quite and the cpu has never had any overheating problems. I don't overclock, but I do game a lot of edit lots of videos.
Summary: I bought this fan to replace the original fan that came with my processor. When I tried to re-install it the stupid plastic push pins broke and I needed a new fan. There were plenty other fans with plastic, but since I no longer wanted any part of that I bought this fan with screws and the back...
Pros: Price-Nice fan at a very inexpensive price. No stupid plastic push pins which always seem to break. This fan seems to be well constructed and pretty sturdy. Comes with thermal paste but not very much, so make sure you get it right on the first shot.
Cons: Because of the back plate for the fan you have to take out the motherboard to install this unit. Not really a con but just a note.
Summary: wouldn't recommend it if you were going to do any oc'ing but for everyday use works great. also, you might want to go with something a little better if you have a hotter running cpu as this is an all aluminum cooler.
Pros: good inexpensive cooler. needed an inexpensive cooler to replace the broken one on an old emachine I was fixing up. kept the e4700 at 30c idle and no higher than 57c after 10 loops of cpu burn. (room temp was around 80f used as-5)
Pros: Easy to install, it screws in to a backboard behind the motherboard (I re-used the one from my last fan which was a similar model.) Comes with a packet of thermal compound if you don't want to buy a separate tube.
Summary: I purchased this because I salvaged a dell Foxconn 775 mobo that was missing a CPU cooler. Unlike my other 775 boards this one had a build in non removable back plate so none of my CPU coolers could screw into the back plate and be snug with the CPU for heat transfer.
Pros: It fits Cheap replacement for weird dell motherboard
Summary: This is just your average LGA775 cooler, it's about as bad as the stock Intel cooler, but trades blows with it in different areas. They're both awful coolers but I'd pick this over an Intel cooler even with the metal shavings problem due to the annoying screaming of stock Intel coolers.
Pros: This cooler has more airflow than a stock LGA775 cooler and has less restricted airflow as well (fins aren't as narrow.) And while it isn't silent by a long shot, it is considerably less annoying than the stock Intel cooler. The Intel cooler has a very annoying whine at full throttle from the un-...
Cons: First, this cooler cannot cool the TDP it's rated for. The specs don't give a concrete TDP limit, but it does say it will cool a "Prescott Pentium 4 3.6 GHz" which is 115W. This cooler absolutely will not do that, in fact it has trouble with anything over 65W. I have it on a Pentium 4 524 (3.06 G...
Summary: Won't buy MASSCOOL again, even over a $10 fan.
Pros: Newegg, heat sink itself
Cons: Fan, tech support for warranty service Recently purchased on 2.16.2014. I've noticed that since installing, that occasionally, when the PC is turned on, the CPU fan does not start (as indicated during the POST with a CPU fan failure alarm and through visual inspection). Other times, when it does ...
Pros: I bought this fan 7 years ago and still runs as quiet and as fast as it did when I bought it. Runs about 2361 rpms most times but is about 2390 max. This was built to last. Had used this on a Celeron E1200 dual core for 5 years, now have it on a Pentium D processor. My Celeron E1200 still works. ...
