Great value for 775!

Nicholas Bailey, Amazon

  • 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.

Wouldn't buy again

Mr A., 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

John C., Newegg
10 October 2014
  • 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...

very happy

David Maury, Amazon

  • Summary: For the price around $10.00 this is a great heat sink. The computer i got this for has always run hot with the heat sink it came with was not able to work on a lot of high load CPU stuff like Video, Seti at home and other stuff.

your mom, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: Works as expected, is silent and a good deal for the price. The one down side was the getting it to snap in correctly a little tough but got it to work. Also I wiped off the paste it came with and put on arctic silver 5 paste instead.

Poor Quality - Dead in 1-2 Years - Get an Intel fan instead ($6).

Mark Twain, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: I ordered two of this for my server, which is a 24/7 lightweight web server. The first copy lasted about two years, so I ordered another copy. The second copy lasted about a year. FYI, the life expectancy of the fan is 40,000 hours, which translates to 4.5 years or 54 months.
