Super low profile, effective

Liam C., Newegg
4 August 2015
  • Summary: If you need a low profile cooler that can handle >3Ghz LGA 775 chips this is a good bet.
  • Pros: Very low profile had no problem fitting in my SFF case (Inwin CE685). The mating surface is very well polished from the factory, and with Arctic Silver paste I was getting temps in the high 40's during a performance benchmark with an Intel E8500 3.16Ghz for more than half an hour straight. Solid ...
  • Cons: In 2015, was more expensive than the refurbished processor I used. The fan is a 70mm and very thin which is great for space but not a PWM fan. It's just a three wire. But it is quiet at least.

Only 3 pins

Joost V., Newegg

  • Pros: It works, it kept my system cool.
  • Cons: * No controll line. The fan shipped with ground, possitive, and negative, but no controll line. The resulted in the fan always running. The copper is fine, and after replacing the fan, I was happy again.

Good Cooler

Scott S., Newegg
13 February 2013
  • Summary: This cooler is replacing the stock intel cooler that came with my Core 2 Duo E8400. CPU temp with stock cooler was 32c at idle and 54c at 100% load. With this new cooler idle temp is 28c and 45c at 100% load.
  • Pros: Low profile. Cools very well.
  • Cons: None so far.

Don't recommend

Computer A., Newegg
11 May 2009
  • Pros: Small size
  • Cons: Put this on a Core Duo chip in a mini-itx case and the fan runs full blast and system doesn't boot. Took it off and installed regular heatsink and system boots fine.

Very Limited Application for this

Richard J., Newegg
12 January 2008
  • Summary: If your building a folding farm out of common desktop mobo and Quads and thinking your going to find a 1U heatsink. think again. I ended up just cutting holes in the case tops of my supermicro 1U cases for the OEM intel heatsinks to pop their heads out of.
  • Pros: Can't say
  • Cons: This is not compatible with any mobo that has capacitors or other things around the socket that is higher than the socket itself. For this Heatsink to work the immediate area around the socket can only have surface mount components. I bought the Thermaltake version of this 1U heatsink fan and was...
