Good, but not for higher power processors

  • Summary: Get this if you are using 3.5ghz and below. Well worth it!
  • Pros: This is a solidly built do I cooler, much better than stock. And hey for $13 who cask complain.
  • Cons: But... I'm running an fx 8350 and it is just not cutting it. It is a little champ though for keeping it as cool as it can.

Great Value and Performance!

Ron G., Newegg

  • Summary: I am running this cooler on a AMD Phenom x6 1055T (95W) CPU and I am running at 14 degrees C idling, It is running cooler than the AMD X2 255 Athlon I took out. That is nice. I am blown away by the quality and performance of this cooler as long as it is installed properly (less than 10 minutes for removal of old CPU and install of new with Heatsink).
  • Pros: This cooler has a 92mm fan, substantial heat sink (Aluminium w/copper base) thermal paste pre-applied, also a fan controller mounted in a PCI slot is included with a know to adjust fan speed to suit your.liking, great airflow, Solid Build Quality, Newegg has a great price on it so it's a win win as a real bank-for-buck Value.

Good First Impression!

Steven Q., Newegg

  • Summary: Got this to replace the fan that originally came in my PC. This one is a little bigger than my old one and I can't imagine trying to stuff 120mm fan in my mid tower case so this is perfect. The heatsink is larger which is nice and the pre-applied thermal compound eases installation. It is a little on the loud side but the included fan speed controller should be able to curb that effect.
  • Pros: Good size, pre-applied thermal compound, large heatsink, PCI fan speed controller included.
  • Cons: Loud

  • Pros: Works good looks good and was super cheap. sturdy build looks like it will last forever.
  • Cons: None

Really great fan

shirlene r., Newegg
25 October 2014
  • Summary: I also use AS 5 paste, I highly recommend as well.
  • Pros: I've had this heatsink and fan for about 3 months and honestly, I'm happy with my purchase. If you're on a budget build then you should consider this. Just to give you an idea, I have a vishera 6-core 3.5hz and with this fan set at 2600rpm it'll idle at 25C and top out around 57C while gaming. You really can't beat the quality for this price.
  • Cons: This may or may not be a con(since I didn't have issues with it) but the long bolts holding fan in place squeeze in between two heatsink fins. It doesn't damage it or anything and was quite easy to put back together..I've just never seen it before.

Nope!

Robert K., Newegg
21 October 2014
  • Summary: I have an older HP system that was running an Athlon II X4 640 and I got a great deal on a Phenom II X6 1045t. I ordered this, thinking the stock heatsink might not be enough to keep up. My processor arrived from the (popular online auction site that is apparently censored here) seller three days before my heatsink, so I decided to give the stock one a chance and it worked great (aluminum, 80mm fan).
  • Pros: It looks kind of cool, I guess...
  • Cons: Thick cooling fins, sub-par thermal compound, and included fan controller makes routing the wires a hassle, as they aren't covered in any way.

the perfect air cooling solution

Anonymous, Newegg
14 October 2014
  • Summary: when searching for for a cooling solution for new builds, my requirements were: 1) 80mm fans are to small and do not move enough air. 120mm are much to big and interfere with RAM slots. 92mm fans and heatsinks are the perfect size. 2) with the variable speed, it allows to satisfy the " noise crowd" and the " air movement crowd " . just simply adjust the fan speed to reduce noise or increase airflow and cooling. 3) price. I have purchased over 50 of these.
  • Pros: 92mm fan size, NOT 80mm or 120mm variable fan speed , thus loudness variable cfm, thus loudness and cooling cost
  • Cons: none

great sturdy fan

Fidel A., Newegg
9 October 2014
  • Pros: good price, lots of reviews wasnt dissapointed. looks to be made sturdy and doesnt feel flimsy, comes pre-applied with thermal paste. used it on my AM3+ processor.
  • Cons: the manual adapter died on the first day...? have to plug the fan normally in order so the fan spins otherwise it wont budge at all with the manual adapter.
