Works as advertised

  • Summary: I was happy that it came with thermal grease and that I could flip the tab lock around. No issues on the first computer but my second one had the capacitor right in the way for where you pushed down on the lock.
  • Pros: Adjustable height on clip or reverse tab to avoid capacitors. Comes with small pouch of thermal grease. Quiet.
  • Cons: No instructions. Thermal grease not labeled well. I first thought it was a moisture packet.

Works, sometimes...

  • Pros: I bought 2 of these for an older Dell server. Work well when they're up to it.
  • Cons: I can already tell that one of the fans is starting to lock-up. The server isn't on 24/7. Replacement fans go for dirt cheap these days. Just wish I didn't have to buy one so soon!

  • Summary: Bought to replace loud fan on computer upgraded to a Celeron 533Mhz.
  • Pros: More than adequate heat sink, inexpensive, included thermal paste (good enough for a Celeron).
  • Cons: A little louder than I expected, but nothing unbearable.

I'm glad they still sell these.

  • Summary: I threw some Arctic Silver 5 on the processors instead of the thermal compound it came with.
  • Pros: I've had this cooler on two different socket 7 chips; a Cyrix 266 and an AMD k6-2 500 with both at stock speeds. It cooled them well and it will undoubtedly cool a AMD k6-III + (the fastest socket 7 processor ever made) when I can get my hands on one.
  • Cons: I don't plan on doing any overclocking with this but I doubt anyone would get very much out of such old chips anyway.
