Eh, I'd look for something more efficient

Anonymous, Newegg
10 July 2015
  • Summary: I ran this on my AMD FX-8120 for about a year, it worked well for about 10 months. I had problems with my processor getting to hot and overheating while doing simple tasks, I probably used this heatsink for longer than it was probably intended to be.
  • Pros: Cheap, Cools somewhat decently
  • Cons: Cheaply Made, Can't handle an FX-8120,

Good Heatsink

James S., Newegg
23 July 2013
  • Summary: Temps on my system remain around 27 C unless gaming and then the highest I have observed was 36 C. Very happy with this heatsink.
  • Pros: Geat heatsink for the price. Very quiet. Does a great job cooling my Athlon II X2 270. I used this instead of the OEM heatsink.
  • Cons: None

One Egg is Too Many

Scott G., Newegg
31 May 2013
  • Summary: Had the fan for a few days past the five month mark and it failed...while I was at work...and fried my processor...if I could I'd give this product zero eggs, but they won't let me. Pay the extra cash and buy something that isn't junk.
  • Pros: It worked out of the box and pretty easy to install...
  • Cons: Cheap, weak, short life

Ignored Customer Support

Komes K., Newegg
24 March 2013
  • Summary: I recommend spending a little more to get better quality. Avoid purchasing this item, since it is known to go bad in a short amount of time.
  • Pros: Good, cheap, and quiet for about 1 month, then starts to get loud.
  • Cons: -Sounds like the bearings are scraping to together. -Emailed Thermaltake customer support with no response for a month and counting. -Bough two of these with the same problem for both.

Not even worth ten bucks

Commodore C., Newegg
12 November 2012
  • Summary: Installed on an AMD Phenom 8550 for less than a week. Noticed noise coming from unit. Luckily before delivery to my customer. Very sketchy fan unit makes incredible racket intermittently. Not worth my time to attempt RMA. Ordering another CPU cooler (not thermaltake).
  • Pros: It looks like a cpu cooler and it installed ok.
  • Cons: Appears to use the worse fan possible.

Aweful.

Ryan B., Newegg
12 October 2012
  • Pros: It cooled my CPU before it died.
  • Cons: Go with something else. The fan on this died less than 1 month in. I had to put the stock AMD cooler back into my HTPC and it actually dropped the CPU temp by 9 degrees. Avoid.

Didn't last

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: This fan / cooler has kept my CPU cool for quite a while.
  • Cons: Has recently started making a ton of noise and finally gave up the ghost after about 18 months. I've had other aftermarket CPU fans last for years and years.
