Summary: Not much else to say otherthan it works as advertised. The brackets to hold the fan in place came very very bent, almost 90 degrees in the very center, when it should have been straight. Since it was a replacement fan I had the old brackets and simply used those instead. Fan works just fine and was what I really wanted out of the product.
Summary: It's a good fan but the heatsink doesn't seat properly in an Intel 478 motherboard. The bottom sides of the heatsink are not beveled to accomodate the standoffs in the CPU area of the mobo so it doesn't sit all the way on top of the CPU itself. As a result it overheats and shuts off the PC. Was able to use the fan on the old sink on a few PC's but not every time.
Summary: The fan itself works quite well, as for the heat sink, not so well. After installing it, my cpu still turned off due to overheating. I place the fan into my old heatsink, and it been fine ever since. It was worth the price, even though the heatsink was absolutely useless.
Summary: This fan and heatsink replaced an old one with bad bearings. It basically comes as you see in the picture. It has the thermal grease pre-applied on the bottom of heatsink and the clips to keep everything in place. Directions included assume you are installing on a clean cpu. I used Q-tips to wipe old grease off. The new heatsink seemed to have enough grease to coat my cpu. It was rather easy to replace my old heatsink & fan.
