  • 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..

Too Small for the kit I ordered

Frank,, TigerDirect.com
31 May 2013
  • 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.

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. 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...
  • Cons: Cheap, weak, short life

Too small for the 6 core kit you're selling

erb1111,, TigerDirect.com
22 May 2013
  • Summary: The headline says it all. I have already had to replace the cpu fan because the heat generated from the 6 core processor is too much for this fan. Think again on your kits.

FAILED after two months

Bobby,, TigerDirect.com
5 January 2013
  • 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.

Not even worth ten bucks

Commodore C., Newegg
12 November 2012
  • Summary: AMD Phenom 8550. Put it in the circular file bin, not worth wasting my time with RMA.
  • Pros: It installed easily.
  • Cons: Fan became crazy loud less than a week into use.

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.

Description is wrong.

Michael A., Newegg
23 August 2012
  • Pros: It's a heatsink fan.
  • 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.

WOW not up to quality standards!!!

Anonymous, Newegg
13 December 2011
  • Pros: It was easy to put on
  • 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.
