  • Pros: Keeps the CPU in my P4 system under 40 degrees Celsius while remaining whisper quiet.
  • Cons: Mounting system is a bit of a pain, the metal the use is a bit sharp and it actually broke a bit when I was installing it. No directions included, luckily I had a 2nd pc to go to the Rosewill site and read the PDF.

  • Pros: For someone that has an old computer that uses the 748 socket, this is a must have. Most CPU coolers that will be found and computer store have already become brittle and warped, so new is the way to go. This is a blend of both performance and style. My system keeps much cooler and the red fan lo...
  • Cons: Really there aren't any. Some may say that it's hard to install, but that's just the nature of this socket.

Cool and QUIET... Just like I like it

Troy E., Newegg

  • Pros: I currently have three of these in use on my home computers and they are amazingly quiet, plus they last a LONG time before something goes wrong. For the price, you cannot beat it! Great quality, great quietness, GREAT company to buy from. I'd give this TEN out of five eggs for being a great prod...
  • Cons: Absolutely none. Cannot complain about a great product.

Acceptable

Lawton B., Newegg

  • Summary: Kudos to New Egg for instant correction of defective part. Not sure what the Rosewill Z is about, and the sticker gladly flaked off by itself. Comes with a thermal paste applied (which I removed to use my own.) Still good cooling after toning the fan way down with a controller.
  • Pros: Good force applied to CPU case, decent looking, good cooling.
  • Cons: Arrived with a broken retention clip. Clips are hard to push down and latch.

Decent for keeping an old relic going.

  • Summary: Considering the age of socket 478 cpus and the fact there are some of us that hold onto our hardware as long as we possibly can, I'm grateful to both Newegg and Rosewill for helping keep things running smoothly.
  • Pros: Great for replacing an aging Pentium 4 socket 478 HSF. Overall its very quiet compared to a stock cooler and with the bright red fan it looks pretty cool too. The biggest Pro is that newegg warehouse has got a ton of these. And they are very inexpensive.
  • Cons: Not sure if its a con or not but mine only lasted about 3 years of average use. I didn't wait for it to quit working though so it might have went a while longer. If you run your socket 478 system 24/7 as a server or something else mission critical you might consider something a bit more high end....

Easy Peasy

  • Summary: I was attempting to eliminate some of the noise being generated by my old PC. I don't use it much, but for how little this cost, it was worth throwing this cooler in. I'm not sure what the people who say this is difficult to install are doing.
  • Pros: Inexpensive Easy install Works well Thermal paste included and preinstalled
  • Cons: Probably could have better or less paste, but if you need better cooling on an old 478 socket you should probably just get a new PC

Quiet Cooler

Samuel W., Newegg
11 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this for an old computer someone gave me. I pulled the Micro-ATX board out of the previous desktop case and paired it with a nicer Rosewill mini tower case and SeaSonic PSU. The original cooler was loud. So I bought this one and now it cools the CPU on my pfSence firewall/router.
  • Pros: Low price. Quiet. Looks Nice. it keeps the CPU cool. Awesome.
  • Cons: None so far. it only cools older CPUs, but the con is that i cannot get those older parts. I was surprised I found this one.

  • Summary: While some recommend removing the motherboard from the case, or removing the fan from the top of the heatsink, (most of the time) that shouldn't be necessary. I found it very easy to install.
  • Pros: Does a good job cooling my 3GHz P4 Prescott HT. It's not too loud, the heatsink moves heat and the fan moves air. It's easy to install as well.
  • Cons: While not worth removing an egg, it does come with a bit too much thermal paste. You'd probably be better off cleaning it off and applying some other thermal paste before installing.

Will not cool CPU

Dannie D., Newegg
19 February 2014
  • Summary: This fan may work for a slower CPU that doesn't generate as much heat but I would not recommend it.
  • Pros: Has a pretty red fan.
  • Cons: My CPU is a Intel 3.4GHz mounted on an Intel D865GVHZ mother board. Idling, the temp was 50 centigrade. I removed the CPU and reapplied the cooling paste, but the temp was the same. I ran my antivirus software and within several minutes the computer over heated and shut down. Now I will be buying...

Okay; could be more quiet

Michael W., Newegg

  • Summary: Would not have purchase if knew that it was the same sound as old fan. I think it may be the bearings and not the blades. Regardless, going to send back.
  • Pros: Reasonable price; value is good. Great replacement fan if original broken.
  • Cons: Don't find the fan to be much if any quieter than the stock Intel fan for my 478 2.8G P4.
