Summary: Not a great fan. I don't monitor temperatures or anything but the computer I put this in first overheated and shut off after about 9 months. I opened it up and the fan wasn't spinning. I gave it a little push and it started spinning again and lasted another month or two.
Summary: On start up, will make a horrendous noise for a couple minutes until it warms up. I've taken apart and cleaned to my best ability which helped for only a few days. Continues to make noises and am ordering a different CPU fan
Summary: This cooler was supplied with an AMD FX-6100 CPU. Definitely not adequate. Temp. just kept going up at idle. Shut it down at over 75C. Don't know how much heat this CPU can handle, and I don't want to find out the hard way!
Summary: Pros: Cheap. Moves air. Keeps processor under room temp at idle. Comes with thermal paste applied. Cons: Loudest cpu fan I have ever seen. 3 wire fan so you need a fan controller or a mother board that supports speedfan otherwise it will run at 3500 rpm all day.
