Summary: I built several barebones systems for a client that came bundled with this heatsink and they ALL burned up after a year. The fan binds up, and if you're handy enough to drill a small hole in the back you can drop some machine oil in there and buy yourself a couple of weeks. Best to just get a better quality fan.
Summary: Loud with only a 3-pin connector so the rpms cannot be adjusted pwm. It's basic at best for cooling, if you can stand the whine. Go for something better...you won't have to pay much more to do better than this product.
