Heatsink fan broken

Mary, Radioshack

  • Excerpt: Out of the box the item looked intact, once trying to install clip was broken. The tab to hold item in place fell into my computer. I had to remove the fan and place on my original cpu base.
  • Pros: Quiet
  • Cons: Weak

no thermal grease included

  • Pros: quiet thus far. I had StarTech products before. their Hard drive drawers are nothing but junk from China. Easy to install. we see if this product can hold its ground.
  • Cons: No thermal grease included. Ad says its pregreased. Its a lie.

(The real) Old Faithful

Evonne K., Newegg
22 November 2011
  • Summary: This is the same fan I ordered a replacement for (it lasted about two or so years so, not bad). Earlier I ordered the Rosewill fan which looked better but ended up returning because the heatsink bumped/bent into electronic parts attached around the socket. I should have ordered this one from the start. Finally some peace and quiet from the grind of the bearings going out on my other fan (same item ironically).
  • Pros: I inadvertently filed this review for the Rosewill Socket A fan. This review is intended for the StarTech 60mm Socket A CPU fan. Quiet. One of two Socket A fans still available on NewEgg (and the only one that fits).
  • Cons: None.

Me fue perfecto para recuperar un PC antiguo

Juancar, amazon.es
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Necesitaba uno de estos para reparar un viejo PC que me daba mucha pena tirar y no lo encontraba ya en ningún sitio, pero lo encontré aquí y tirado de precio así que no lo dudé. El cooler es un poco ruidoso, pero es normal en esos ventiladores tan pequeños.
