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.
Summary: I had a piece of junk heatsink with plastic clips, it got lose and my pc started over heating. I ordered this and installed it in under 20 mins and it works great! and I love the metal mounting screws and pre applied thermal paste.
Summary: I have been through 2 of these and they just get louder the more they are used. They didn't stop working, I just pulled them because of the noise that it makes. Thermaltake should take there name of of this re-branded fan. There are plenty of liquid cooled fans on this site and I would recommend them to the people that want a silent cooling fan!
Summary: A word of caution tho' since no instructions were given I had to do some fansy thinking to figure out how this heatsink with Fan was mounted. Probably a UTube place explains it all, but didn't have access to net when I was installing.
Summary: Received an Intel fan and heatsink with the CPU. This combo is 50% larger ! Quiet and came with heatsink compound on it. Don't know how long a life it will have but right now, would recommend this very highly.
