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.

Lasted a solid four years cooling a moderately OC'd Phenom II X2

Jesse K., Newegg

  • Summary: I only just came to write this review because after four and a half years the fan died. The PC is just a facebook machine and occasional SIMs player for a family member so performance was never the top priority.
  • Pros: Four and a half solid years of performance from the fan Heatsink will still be useable after a thorough dusting and a reapplication of thermal paste Very budget friendly
  • Cons: Honestly, this far down the line there are probably better performing units in the same price range.

Great w Fan Upgrade

Justin B., Newegg
12 September 2015
  • Summary: My case doesn't have a lot of clearance for a large heat sink. I saw this one for a good price on black friday (2014) and figured why not. With a mild 4GHz OC on my FX-6300 I needed to crank the stock Rosewill fan that came with this up pretty high when under load (Prime 95).
  • Pros: Low profile, much more efficient than stock, good value.
  • Cons: Stock fan should be replaced with a good PWM.

Decent, but loud!

Aaron R., Newegg
12 August 2015
  • Summary: My poorly crafted MSI mATX board didn't have a spot for the controller, so it runs at 100% all the time, making it super loud. I guess it's good for keeping things cool though.
  • Pros: -keeps things fairly cool. I don't keep track of temps tho.
  • Cons: -loud! I've gotten used to it now, but when I first got it it was distractingly loud.

Great price for an excellent heatsink

Anonymous, Newegg
26 July 2015
  • Summary: It is nice to have the thermal paste already applied in such a neat fashion, especially since thermal paste itself can cost a pretty penny on its own. Although a good idea and investment, I cannot use the fan dial that is included with this product as my PC is not in a position where I can reach the...
  • Pros: -Heavy duty yet compact. -Quiet; barely a hum. Sometimes I forget it's in there. -Comes with an already applied, reasonable layer of thermal paste. Just remove protective the plastic and it's good to go. -Cools the CPU very well - a noticeable 10 to 15 degrees cooler than our older heatsink at an...
  • Cons: -Nothing serious. Since I bought the heatsink brand new, the latch to connect the device to the motherboard was difficult to attach. It took some effort but it definitely fits and it's not going anywhere anytime soon.
