Great value for 775!

Nicholas Bailey, Amazon
23 June 2015
  • Summary: ThermalTake scores again! Great quality cooler and fan for great price. Real value is hard to come by. Aluminum is not cheap! ThermalTake goes out of the way and provides quality aluminum and fan for under $20. Not as dense of an array of fins as my old cooler, but is of better quality.

Fit perfectly with my system and was easy to install

  • Summary: Fit perfectly with my system and was easy to install. I had had bad luck with a previous heatsink, the Cooler Master Hyper TX3, which said it was designed for 1150 systems on the actual packaging.

Socket 775 Cooler Best Deal

Murf, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: Love the mounting hardware, stays secure and no plastic pins to break. Yes you have to have the motherboard removed to install, but the steel pins keep the cooler secure and level on the processor. Excellent cooler.

low cost high performance fan

  • Summary: It is a little difficult to install because the mother board requires removing in order to get the screw bracket on he back side of the board. Once you get all the screws started it is a piece of cake. it works great.

Good mounting hardware

  • Summary: When I discovered the plastic mounting clips broke and failed in my old CPU fan, I had to order a replacement. This fan uses metal screws and a nutplate to secure it the motherboard. It is a much more sturdy attachment and the fan noise is low. I am happy with the selection.

Wouldn't buy again

Stephen L., Newegg
3 November 2014
  • Pros: Cheap.
  • Cons: This fan is way noisier than the Intel stock heatsink and fan that it replaced. That fan was going out ('clicking') so I bought this one. The springs under the screws are ridiculously strong, it was very difficult to get the screw ends to make contact with the screwholes in the receptacle that go...

Works as intended

  • Summary: Was glad that I purchased this item for my old socket 775 box. This type of cooler is much more secure than the push pin kind.
  • Pros: No problem to install this. It has a base that it has to be fastened to that sits beneath the motherboard. So...you'll have to pull up the motherboard in order to install this cooler unless you have a similar base already beneath the motherboard. But the cooler itself is working fine. Doesn't add...
