5 out of 5 eggsgood, inexpensive cooler

Pros: good inexpensive cooler. needed an inexpensive cooler to replace the broken one on an old emachine I was fixing up. kept the e4700 at 30c idle and no higher than 57c after 10 loops of cpu burn. (room temp was around 80f used as-5)

Cons: none but a 4pin plug would've been nice.

Other Thoughts: wouldn't recommend it if you were going to do any oc'ing but for everyday use works great.
also, you might want to go with something a little better if you have a hotter running cpu as this is an all aluminum cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Install

Pros: Easy to install, it screws in to a backboard behind the motherboard (I re-used the one from my last fan which was a similar model.) Comes with a packet of thermal compound if you don't want to buy a separate tube.

Cons: None, works great!

4 out of 5 eggsMasscool CPU Cooler

Pros: It fits
Cheap replacement for weird dell motherboard

Cons: doesn't cool very well

Other Thoughts: I purchased this because I salvaged a dell Foxconn 775 mobo that was missing a CPU cooler. Unlike my other 775 boards this one had a build in non removable back plate so none of my CPU coolers could screw into the back plate and be snug with the CPU for heat transfer. This one does and that is why I'm using it. Do not try to overclock with this! It has a tough time keeping my Intel core 2 EX CPU under 50-60 at idle.

1 out of 5 eggsterrible

Pros: none

Cons: The back plate is a joke. It's made out of flimsy plastic composite and it's not properly threaded for the screws.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for.

3 out of 5 eggsAverage cooler

Pros: This cooler has more airflow than a stock LGA775 cooler and has less restricted airflow as well (fins aren't as narrow.)

And while it isn't silent by a long shot, it is considerably less annoying than the stock Intel cooler. The Intel cooler has a very annoying whine at full throttle from the un-ducted fan.

Cons: First, this cooler cannot cool the TDP it's rated for. The specs don't give a concrete TDP limit, but it does say it will cool a "Prescott Pentium 4 3.6 GHz" which is 115W. This cooler absolutely will not do that, in fact it has trouble with anything over 65W. I have it on a Pentium 4 524 (3.06 GHz, 84W) and it will go over TCase while idle and near 80C under load.

Second, the mounting system is extremely hazardous. The screw bolts are made with an extremely poor quality metal and are anodized with an extremely thin layer of expensive metal to give it the chrome look.

The problem with this is that when you start screwing the bolts into the mounting bracket, metal shavings start flying everywhere. If you aren't very careful about protecting the motherboard, some metal shaving will inevitably go somewhere it shouldn't and destroy the motherboard. I had to learn this the hard way.

The way I found to stop this is to pinch a slightly damp cloth around each bolt as it's fastened to the bracket to catch any metal bits that come off. You have to do this every time you install or remove the cooler.

Other Thoughts: This is just your average LGA775 cooler, it's about as bad as the stock Intel cooler, but trades blows with it in different areas. They're both awful coolers but I'd pick this over an Intel cooler even with the metal shavings problem due to the annoying screaming of stock Intel coolers.

But at this price, you can get a much better cooler so you should only get one on sale.

1 out of 5 eggsFaulty fan, bad tech support

Pros: Newegg, heat sink itself

Cons: Fan, tech support for warranty service

Recently purchased on 2.16.2014. I've noticed that since installing, that occasionally, when the PC is turned on, the CPU fan does not start (as indicated during the POST with a CPU fan failure alarm and through visual inspection). Other times, when it does start, the fan RPM reporting seems very erratic, sometimes reporting up to 5000 RPMs and as low as zero (0). I've seen this erratic behavior with several sensor tools, as well as in the BIOS.

Contacted their tech support, but they've been non-responsive.

Other Thoughts: Won't buy MASSCOOL again, even over a $10 fan.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this fan

Pros: I bought this fan 7 years ago and still runs as quiet and as fast as it did when I bought it. Runs about 2361 rpms most times but is about 2390 max. This was built to last. Had used this on a Celeron E1200 dual core for 5 years, now have it on a Pentium D processor. My Celeron E1200 still works. Ill probably try to find a nice motherboard and build a new system with it. When I do that ill purchase this cooling fan and heatsink.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggslasted years...

Pros: Had it for a few years, still spins at 2361 rpm great cooler extending the life of my old p4 and now a second hand pentiumm d @ 3.40ghz, temps are good for an all aluminum cooler.

Cons: Hard to disassemble the fan from sink i did not try to, so it makes it a bit harder to clean, sticking tape in between fins works well with compressed air.

Other Thoughts: using in a htpc, it is the most silent fan in the system.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than stock Intel cooler

Pros: I purchased this AND some arctic silver 5 thermal paste to replace a worn our stock heat sink and some cheap dynex thermal paste I was using for years. Here are the pros:

1. SCREW PINS!!! - Soooo much better than the worthless plastic push pins in the stock heat sink (Intel Core 2 Duo). One of my push pins was broken so I was most likely getting less contact area between cpu and heat sink, therefore reducing the heat transfer. The screw pins allow for a much more secure fit, translating to more cpu/heat sink area in contact, resulting in better heat transfer.

2. Gaming temps - Brought my gaming temps down by about 10 C in each core. Down from 60+ C to just over 50 C.

Cons: Not really a con, but idle temps did not change at all (still ~ 40 C) but those weren't a problem and probably will not get any lower with just a fan and thermal paste.

Other Thoughts: This cooler + arctic silver 5 were a pretty good upgrade over the stock heat sink and cheap dynex thermal paste. The screw pins are so much easier to deal with than plastic push pins, and my gaming temps went down about 10 C.

5 out of 5 eggsGood, cheap cooling

Pros: Low price, effective. Keeping my C2D E7400 at 30C idle and mid to high 30s under a load.

Cons: Only a 3 wire connector so no PWM (fan speed control) which means it isn't the quietest cooler ever.

Other Thoughts: Since Intel says my CPU will stay healthy up to 74C, I would prefer to let it get a little warmer and keep the noise down by being able to lower the fan speed, but, for the price, there's really nothing to complain about with this cooler.
