Cools, but quiet? Am I doing something wrong?

Daryl G., Newegg
31 December 2007
  • Summary: 3 pin connection is a bit limiting (not variable speed).
  • Pros: Nicely made, quality product. Cools very well keeping my old P4 3.0GHz Prescott cool (<60C under load).
  • Cons: Pretty loud IMHO. Trying to use this system as a media center (yeah, should have gone mobile CPU) and it's 10dB louder than the quiet parts of a movie. Oh yeah, collects dust "like and old lady's handbag" if I may quote another poster.

Meh

  • Pros: Very quiet, seems to do a good job.
  • Cons: Extremely heavy (almost feels dangerous to have it in there). Very difficult to install -- one of the S-type brackets they sent was deformed and wouldn't fit on without some 'modification' (bashing with a hammer).

Not All It's Cracked Up To Be

Barton W., Newegg

  • Summary: I've had one in my system for a couple of years paired with Artic Silver 5, and it kept my socket 478 Prescott 3.2 idle at 53C in a Lian-Li case. Full load at 67 to 70C (Overheat temp). I replaced with a cooler at 1/2 the cost. Temps lowered 10C easy.
  • Pros: Neat design for windowed cases. 92mm fan moves more air more quietly than 80mm. More quiet than stock HSF.
  • Cons: Severely collects dust, and near impossible to clean. Not much difference than stock cooling - only about 2C difference when paired with Artic Silver 5.
