Excerpt: Installed reasonably very easily on ASUS A8N-SLI with nForce4 chipset. Replaced stock HSF due to the fact the fan lastly died. Does a decent job cooling (runs at 37C at idle). Still is particularly hot to the touch (feels about the very same as the stock HSF without the fan operating).
Excerpt: Affordable and silent. Involves thermal goop and a single set of spare assembly components. One size fits all mounting system uses sliding and rotating arms secured by tiny screws and nuts. Finicky to get proper.
Excerpt: Silent of course, cool to the touch when pc has been on for numerous hours. The heatsink sits crooked due to the fact the holes on my mobo are either spread out also considerably, or anything. My BFG 7600gt (single stock cooler) collides with the heatsink. There is no space amongst two capacitors on the card meeting the heatsink. I'm afraid that a larger graphics card will knock over the heatsink and make it fall off, or will not fit at all.
Excerpt: Nicely made and conducts heat from chipset properly. (It gets uncomfortably hot to the touch.) On my chipset, NVIDIA nForce four, the heatsink becomes uncomfortably hot to the touch. I'm concerned that my chipset will be broken due to inadequate cooling. Other folks have complained of installation challenges, but with a bit of care the procedure went smoothly. I also discovered the surface of the heatsink to be be machined flat, unlike some other reviewers.
Excerpt: Nicely created and huge adequate to cool most northbridge chipsets without having a fan if there is sufficient flow in the case. Mounting is quite versatile in design and style and will match most motherboards with holes for mounting around the chip. Tiny screws are tricky to get started. Preceding posters installation concepts are good guidance. I did the exact same prefit and tightening just before putting the thermal compound on.
Excerpt: Operates and is quieter than the stock fan for my mobo. does not have a fan but this makes my case quiter. Utilizing it on my Asus A8N SLI deluxe. When i went to pull off stock fan, pulling up on the springs got the fan off. Cleaned up the old thermal grease and even even though this heatsink did not fit 100% it was an simple install.
Excerpt: Works nicely as a heatsink, installation was uncomplicated. Can\'t Overclock this device. The Nforce4 ultra is a very hot chip. this heatsink worked far better than my OEM, But, to get temps down you have to have a fan or a Properly vented situation.
Excerpt: Silent and ease of installation. Package comes with a thermal compound. Big in size. It might not fit if utilizing tow video cards. Created of aluminum. If I can go back, I'll order the ZM – 32K instead. It's the exact same size just smaller in height so there's no issues with your video card. Finally the fan on my ASUS A8N-Duluxe gave up. I researched about for the very best repair and this is what practically everyone is making use of.
Excerpt: I got this to cool the southbridge on my Asus A8N-E following the fan decided to go out. It fit my board just fine. It still ran a bit as well warm until I added a front intake fan. I blame my hot Nforce 4 additional than the heatsink although. In the future i'm acquiring an AMD motherboard due to their cooler chipsets.
Excerpt: Pulls alot of heat off of the MCP on the Biostar Tforce 550SE. The fan was failing on the stock hsf. The installation technique is not the easiest. It is practically impossible to align the "wings" before setting the sink down. When you move a wing, it loosens up and you have to choose it back up and try to tighten it. Also, the screws are very soft. I practically stripped mine. I'm a small nervous on how hot the heatsink gets.
