Great cooler

12 January 2015
  • Summary: Great cooler, does the job, nothing more to say!

  • Summary: im no engineer, so its most likely an effective fan/heatsink combo, but probably not.
  • Pros: price
  • Cons: the area where the heatsink makes contact with the cpu is round, and therefore has less surface area to make contact, and it doesnt show that in the pictures provided

Excellent for the money.

Anonymous, Newegg
15 February 2014
  • Summary: I've replaced several stock cpu coolers with this type across several different socket types and have never been disappointed with the performance. My experience is with stock performance as I do not overclock.
  • Pros: Back-plate with mounting screws. Replaced stock Intel fan on dual core processor. Heat had softened and stretched plastic anchors. This product ensured proper contact and cooling. It's quiet, and the taller heat-sink provided more efficient cooling to the chipset heat-sink next to it.
  • Cons: I can't think of a single one. Some people might have issue with the unit having a 3 prong fan connector, instead of four, but I do not have a problem with it. It will still fit on the 4 prong motherboard connector with one prong not being used.

Ok Fan

Stephen B., Newegg
26 December 2013
  • Pros: Kept the cpu cool.
  • Cons: Died in less than 2 years. Which is over the warrenty but i have had many fans run for wayyyyyy over 2 years so i kind think that it is a little junky but not to mad about it. Im not actually sure when it died because the case fans kept it cool. And i never monitor its temps. This fan was used in a homeserver so i paid it no attention unless there is an issue. When i opened it up to put in a tv tuner i found that the cpu fan was not working. Luckly the server is in a ...

Good Basic Replacement

Simon L., Newegg
30 July 2013
  • Summary: Although there are more cons to this product than pros, one must realize that this is just a simple Heatsink & Fan, not an overclocking liquid cooling component. This is great for a basic replacement if you decide to upgrade the stock fan to something that delivers a slightly better performance or an added investment to keep your cpu from overheating.
  • Pros: It's easy to install, taking me less than 2 minutes to apply the thermal paste (Arctic Silver's basic ceramic paste), bracket and screws. The heatsink and fan are slightly larger than the stock fan, running quietly on Idle: 41 degrees Celsius & Max: 61 degrees Celsius.
  • Cons: It's not a copper based heatsink; all aluminum. The heatsink block is circular and smaller in diameter than the area of the cpu, which makes me feeling uneasy about this item. The provided thermal paste is simply not enough to "bond" the heatsink onto the cpu (luckily, I've purchased a large amount of Arctic Silver Ceramic Paste). It contains a 3-pin power plug to the motherboard, which means its fan-speed cannot be controlled directly from the computer and would requ...

better then the stock Q2C Cooler

Joseph P., Newegg
5 June 2013
  • Summary: I ended up getting a water cooler.
  • Pros: Lower the temps on my Q9300 by 10c.
  • Cons: Fan started making bad bearing noises after 3 days of use. There is no bottom plate that presses against the CPU. Seemed weird. What do you expect for 10 bucks though.
