Has to work its' way up to be called Junk

Andy E., Newegg
10 September 2013
  • Pros: got one star only because cant give less.
  • Cons: pins were already in "seated" position. have to pull them out but the clips that the pins push in were all bent outward. These rate below Junk in my book.

Just terrible

Sean M., Newegg

  • Summary: Its quiet but at the same time it cools on par with the smaller stock cooler.
  • Pros: It runs and keeps the Core2Duo processor cool
  • Cons: It has a terrible 3 pin connector and is a pain to mount. It took 15 minutes of struggling to get it to seat correctly, and even then it seems stressed at only corner.

  • Pros: Cheap. Fast shipping. I wrote a review earlier, wanted to change it. I turned of all my case fans and did notice some chatter from the cpu fan. its really noticeable on startup cuz the rpms shoot up on the fan. but even after start up you can still hear some chatter. other than that its relativel...

fan section is Removeable for CLEANING

Anonymous, Newegg
7 March 2010
  • Summary: fan noise - not too bad. Overall rating of 4 because it does the job at a low cost.
  • Pros: After running about a year my CPU temperature started climbing during high load processes (video encoding/decoding). I found that you can lift the fan section from the heat sink section and then use a vacuum cleaner to remove accumulated dust off of the heat sink fins. After you clean off the fin...

Decent cooler

Devin O., Newegg
22 September 2009
  • Summary: Keeps my LGA775 Pentium 4 3.0Ghz at a healthy 23C idle! This is in an 18C ambient temp. To install it you have to unlock the plastic tabs, lift them up, then turn them again to lock them, then press the heatsink onto the board, then press the locks down.
  • Pros: -Cheap -Nice, fat heatsink -Fan cools extremely well, pretty dang high CFM
  • Cons: -Little loud for a small cylinder fan like this, I have a thermaltake one that is probably 50% quieter -Large dead zone on heatsink makes fan louder -Processor contact area has machined ribs that need to be lapped out.

Iffy at best

Anonymous, Newegg
12 June 2008
  • Summary: I haven't fired up the board with this so I don't know how great the cooling power is, but, we'll see soon enough. Definetly install on the board before the board is in a narrow or smaller case if possible.
  • Pros: It's huge, it cools a lot and it's def a good deal beefier then most at it's pricepoint for airflow. It also comes with a "syringe" of cooling flux to apply at will.
  • Cons: the clips it uses. the fan and clips are plastic, and the twist nob thumb screw method is def not good for tight areas and only 3 of the 4 really seem to secure on the board. And there is no backplate to anchor it to.
