Love the performance and the silent noise!

Slovak Tommy, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this fan for one main reason and that was the decibel level. I seen that this was rated among one of lowest db for a fan CPU. They were right, this thing is completely SILENT. Even on heavy CPU usage (running VMs and games simultaneously) this runs cool and silent.

Pretty rad

  • Summary: If you want a cheap cooler that will do the job and is quiet then get this thing. If you are a nut for better cooling, i would also suggest looking into noctuas larger coolers and i promise you wont be disappointed.
  • Pros: Compact compared to 120 coolers, awesome noctua colors (a little sarcasm but you can at least say you have one of the best air cooling brands on the market). Keeps my 1150 i5 around 30 degrees at 3.8ghz when im servicing my pcs water cooling loop. This is usually in my home theater pc and is awes...
  • Cons: I really have none. Some people might dislike the colors, but i say they are scrubs and dont understand that noctuas are the choice for air cooling

Great Product

Paul F., Newegg
28 May 2015
  • Summary: Newegg delivered very quickly. Very happy with the Service.
  • Pros: Knocked 40 Degrees Celcius off my CPU temps when video processing. Easy installation. Very,very quiet using both fans, there is the option to use only one. Comes with the thermal paste which saves buying it separate. Easy installation , no problems, the directions are super easy to understand.
  • Cons: None.

Very effective cooler

Ziqi J., Newegg
25 April 2015
  • Summary: For mITX build, the cooler is very likely to get in the way of RAM. Installing only 1 fan would fix this issue. Or install it in another direction. I had no problem running just 1 fan, even quieter.
  • Pros: Keeps CPU cool. about 30C on idle, 40C ish on load, Never break 50 for me.
  • Cons: it's big so make sure you plan your layout well

It's so quiet, it's difficult for me to tell ...

  • Summary: It's so quiet, it's difficult for me to tell when the computer is on now. It does fit in a mini-itx, but heads-up: depending on your specific motherboard and case (bitfenix prodigy for me), you'll have to have the fan a few notches higher than usual to give clearance for the memory.

Amazing CPU Cooler

Ernesto m., Newegg
1 February 2015
  • Summary: Without the "Anti Vibration" Strips it doesn't really vibrate, and it stays REALLY cool with only ONE fan, so I imagine you'll get even better cooling with the 2 fans on, my motherboard could only support 3 fans, (Including the CPU fan and the fans already in the case) So I couldn't use the 2 fans,...
  • Pros: Upgrade from Normal Intel CPU Cooler to this cooler, it's amazing! - It comes with 2 fans - You have the option to mount only 1 fan - Is compatible with the most popular LGA slots (1150, 1155, etc. etc.) - Never seen my CPU go above 50C under heavy load, with ONE fan, imagine 2. - The heat sink i...
  • Cons: Just some little complaints, - It came with anti vibration strips which I didn't really know how to place them, and the instructions didn't really say how to put them on, so I didn't. - The fans are not controllable, they only use 3 pins instead of 4 so it doesn't let you customize the fan settings.

Awesome cooling!!

Nicholas P., Newegg
14 January 2015
  • Pros: Replacing a modern h60 so my build can fit inside a new case when it arrives. Temps w/the Noctua 92mm are 5c higher than the h60 (both using push pull). Quite impressive really.. easy install, very high quality!! Nice metal case badge. Intel G3258 @ 4.6Ghz 75c w/ Noctua 92mm.
  • Cons: Nothing.. this thing oozes quality.
