Just as there’s no such thing as too much power, there’s no such thing as too much cooling. The CLP0533 CPU cooler is Thermaltake's latest offering designed to bring high-powered cooling to the latest Intel socket 1366 processors.

The all-copper base absorbs heat and transfers it to the aluminum fins more efficiently than other materials. A 70mm single-ball-bearing fan, which has a longer life and better heat endurance than a sleeve-bearing fan, sits on the side of the heatsink blowing air across the adjacent chipsets, MOSFETs and other nearby circuitry. PWM functionality allows the system BIOS to adjust the fan for lower noise levels depending on they system’s thermal needs.

A simple push pin clip installation lets you mount the CLP0533 onto Intel Socket 1366 processors including the latest Core i7 (Nehalem Bloomfield) Series.

  • newegg Pure Copper Base and Aluminum Fins A pure copper base and aluminum fins maximize heat dissipation surface area for excellent cooling performance.
  • newegg 70mm Cooling Fan with PWM Function The 70mm cooling fan with PWM function automatically adjusts speeds according to the CPU temperature for the optimum balance between cooling performance and noise level.
  • newegg Core i7 Compatible Compatible with the socket LGA1366, the Thermaltake CLP0533 supports Intel's latest-generation Core i7 processors.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes as advertised: but too loud.

Pros: Larger heatsink than stock fan.

Cons: My stock fan was too loud. I got this, and it was just as loud, if not louder. We're not talking a light fan hum it's like a light duty hairdryer and drowns out the hum of my air purifier sitting next to it.

Other Thoughts: If you have a socket 1366 system and don't mind the noise it keeps the computer cool.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
The fan for CLP0533 can range between 21-48 dBA depending on the speed of the fan. We would recommend having the perfect point for you between performance and noise. If you feel the fan is excessively loud beyond the stated dBA level, then please call Customer Service to diagnose the issue and replace the fan if necessary.

2 out of 5 eggsNot worth the $$

Pros: Well not much to say here. Its a Termaltake but a poor one.

Cons: This cooler only kepy my CPU mildy cooler than the stock one. Not worth the $25. Spend the extra cash and get a higher end unit or go water cooled. I am buying a water cooled unit to replace this.

Other Thoughts: Ran this one an I7 930 @ stock 2.8Ghz. Running Prime 95 the core temps all hit 90C. It just took an extra minute to get there over the stock cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsI bought OEM one for 16 bucks!!

Pros: %100 this thing will move some air! And I coulpled this beefy fan and heatsink with my giga-byte x58 UD3R mobo. this mobo has stellar good software CD. and inside the Mobo software is a setting and all you have to do is drag the little scroll bar down to its lowest setting and the fan drops down to about 1,500 rpm's. At these speeds it's totaly quiet. I've got this thing cooling a peltier cooler and it keeps my i7 920 at about 37 deg C with an over clock of 2.9 ish

Cons: I will agree that yes at %100 this thing sounds like a portable hairdryer. (and it's not as pretty as those fancy dancy coper things) when powering up the software hasn't loaded yet and the fan just takes off at %100 untill the OS loads up and then my giga-byte easy tuner loads. At which point the fan immediatly calms down from about 6,000+ rpm way down to 1,500 ish. and plastic screw's? ick... but I had some older beefy screws that I've cannabalized from my other broken HP. But I know that when I bought it I was going to do that. after all thats why it's called A CUSTOM BUILD!!!

Other Thoughts: This is a bargain! Get it! Just the type of bargain I was looking for. Even with my peltier against this heatsink, it rarely feels even slightly warm, and the fan runs slow and quiet, but you have to have some sort of software to make it run slower, other wise

1 out of 5 eggsGreat cases, lousy fans!

Pros: It installs easily.

Cons: Noise. If you like hearing a 747 taking off right next to you, then by all means buy this cooler. I removed the thermaltake fan and replaced it with the OEM fan that came with my intel 960 processor, and got the same results with a low hum.

Other Thoughts: I used to regard Thermaltake as a leader. What a stinker of a fan. Makes me rethink any Thermaltake future purchases.

1 out of 5 eggsSO LOUD!

Pros: It turns on?

Cons: So incredibly loud. DO NOT ORDER THIS. Even with fan control turned on this thing is incredibly loud, and it is constantly spinning up and slowing down, even more annoying than just leaving it on full blast. DO NOT ORDER.

Other Thoughts: Trust me, I didn't trust the other reviews... and I should have.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We at Thermaltake apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. Please contact for warranty service.
Best regards,

5 out of 5 eggsKeeps it cool.

Pros: Don't take off your motherboard to install a heatsink. Not sure it works better than the stock heatsink supplied by Intel, but

Cons: None. Don't believe the griefers.

Other Thoughts: Load up your case with cheap fans. I've got a total of 13 different fans in my case (a personal record) and if one goes out, I doubt I'll notice, and doubt that it will matter.

Fan inventory:

1. Top 92mm case fan
2. Power supply 120mm fan
3. CPU 70mm Fan
4. Back case 80mm fan
5. Back case 80mm fan
6. Chipset fan
7. Front case 80 mm fan
8. Front case 80mm fan
9. Front case 80mm fan
10. Front case 80mm fan
11. Side door 92mm fan
12. Side door 92mm fan
13. Video card fan

4 out of 5 eggsEffective

Pros: Effective at cooling an i7 920 @ 1.25 vCore at 3.8 Ghz in my very ventilated case. Cheap. Small. The price is great. This would easily fit in an HTPC. It is kind of amazing that a cooler this small can be so effective. If you are cramped for space and don't mind the noise, get this.

Cons: LOUD!!! Prohibits this from being used in an HTPC case. A fan that wasn't so loud would fix the loudness, but it may lose it's effectiveness. Not enough cooler for exceeding 3.8 Ghz and 1.3 vCore. But is OK up to that point.

Other Thoughts: Too loud for me. Ordered a Thermalright 120. 4 eggs for it's effectiveness. -1 egg for volume.

3 out of 5 eggsLOUD!

Pros: This fan/heatsink is definitely a cool runner.. My machine has been sitting at 38c when being maxed out crunching database data.. Idles at around 33c..

Cons: Freaking loud.. So loud that I'm going to pull it out and put something that doesn't cool as well but is much quieter..
