Keep On Tickin'

Mark S., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I bought two of these about ten years ago for desktop builds for me and the wife and then another one for our HTPC a few years later. Through the years we have upgraded a few times but have kept the fans for all new builds. They are still going strong!
  • Pros: Quiet. Moves a lot of air, cools well and fits everything I've tried them on. Can't kill it
  • Cons: Controller dies. Use it at your own risk.

Okay w Fan Upgrade

Justin B., Newegg
11 March 2016
  • Summary: UPDATE 3/12/16: I saw this one for a giveaway price on black friday (2014) and figured why not. At the time I was unsure whether a larger cooler would fit my case and was on a tight budget.
  • Pros: Low profile.
  • Cons: Questionable value. Stock fan should be replaced with a good PWM right out the gate. Heatsink not terribly efficient, may even be worse than stock coolers.

Excellent cooler for Amd A10 7850k

8336891 I., Newegg
27 February 2016
  • Summary: if your looking for a affordable cpu cooler that out does expensive ones this is what you should get. I wish i would of bought this one first before spending hundreds of dollars on over priced and over sized junk
  • Pros: - very quite can hardly hear it run - keeps my amd cpu super cold running at 35c under load ( i went through 3 cpu coolers before i found this one) - small and stays on the mother board ( unlike others that have massive heat sinks and do not do well standing up) - funny how a 17 dollar cooler is ...
  • Cons: - none whats so ever I would recommend this to anyone

  • Summary: If you just bought a new CPU, I'd advise using the stock heatsink over this one.
  • Pros: Cheap. Works like an average cpu cooler.
  • Cons: Loud, I mean REALLY loud. If you dont mind an f18 testing max thrust on its engines inside of your computer case, then its not too bad I guess.

Keep the cpu much cooler than the small garbage stock fan and heatsink.

Lisa P., Newegg

  • Summary: I would recommend then to anyone who doesn't want a 2ft tall cooling system in their rig.
  • Pros: Extremely easy to install as it fits just like the stock setup. It is nice that I can manually control the fan speed from the back side of the case.
  • Cons: None

Really good cooler.

John L., Newegg
6 January 2016
  • Summary: Its a bit more noisy than the old fan cooler that was on the cpu but the noise is not that bad. And it keeps the chip cool. I dont overclock my chip so its pretty easy to keep it cool.
  • Pros: Easy to install. No struggle getting it in or having room to work around it.
  • Cons: Had no problems at all.
