Summary: Came in a bundle with my fx-6100. Died in less than a week. Picked up a decent fan(freezer13) at another store by my house for less than $20.. waaay better. Spend a few extra bucks.. you get what you pay for..
Summary: I ordered a barebones kit with an AMD FX-6100 CPU and they sent this cooler in the kit. The fan started to fail after two weeks. I have never used a fan with a rifle bearing before, but my ball bearing fans run perfectly for years and years. When the fan started to make an awful noise I started to research this cooler. I found that this cooler is for 65W processors (no such info on TD). The 6100 CPU that came with the kit is a 95W processor.
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. I wish I would have gone with my instincts and shelled out a little more money; now I have to pay for another fan and a processor...oh joy...fingers crossed it didn't damage anything else.
Pros: It worked out of the box and pretty easy to install...
Summary: After two months of usage. The fan bearing failed and the warranty requires you to send the unit back to thermal-take. Yeah, right, I'm not going to be without a computer due to no cooling fan for two weeks just because they want an item returned before they ship out another.
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: Claims to be compatible with socket 939 but comes with no bracket or converter to make it fit. All it is is a heatsink with a lever that clamps it down to.... nothing. I read that it was compatible with 939 and now this seems like a pointless buy.
Cons: But within 1 week it started making a humming noise, powered down the pc cleaned up the heatsink and cpu, reapplied thermal grease. Put back in place within 2 more weeks same vibrating and humming noise was back.
