3 out of 5 eggsVery low profile!

Pros: It is very low profile, and it was nicely priced.

Cons: Didn't even attempt to install it, I bought it for a shuttle barebone and didn't feel like taking the entire board out to see if it could be installed. The fan plastic cover on the top doesn't seem to be very strong, and I don't like the idea of the screw method to fasten it around the CPU.

Other Thoughts: The design could have been better thought out.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid - Fan Just Doesn't Last

Pros: Low Profile, fit into my ASROCK MB no problem. Used little needle nose pliers to mount pins, no problem. MB controlled speed, very quiet. At first, its quit a bargain for the money. Come on AC...what's with the fan quality?

Cons: I installed it in April 09, Its gone through two fans already, fan isn't standard, have to go to AC to replace. The second fan only lasted 3 months before the bearing started to fail. The first fan just stopped, like yeah, stopped. Problem is, the fan is so quiet, you don't know it's failed until you notice your CPU running at like 140F !

Other Thoughts: I am sick of aftermarket CPU fan failure. It's either put up with the stock "flying saucer" sound fans(they are reliable), or go with a heatsink that just takes an easily replaceable square fan. I am going with a large flat heatpipe heatsink(fan parallel to the MB for easy replacement and MB cooling) and am going to put a 120mm sleeve fan like the ones in computers in the 80's. Remember? They would go 5-7 years continuously before dieing in a ball of dust...

4 out of 5 eggsWARNING: Installation MAY require Mechanical Engineering degree

Pros: Copper Heatpipes, very low profile

Cons: Installation was a real pain. after some thought, I tried pliers but ended up using a Hammer to tap each fastener in place. It took a bit of creative placement to brace the board on the edge of a table to slightly tap the plastic pieces into place. Alignment is absolutely essential.

Other Thoughts: Now thats in place i don't even want to think about how I am ever going to take it off again...

This is NOT for those interested in a simple/quick Heatsink installation

1 out of 5 eggsA Rare Miss

Pros: Low profile cooling solution in the vertical sense.
Solid construction of heatsink itself.
Good for a mATX/ATX build.

Cons: Zotac GF9300-D-E motherboard / Sugo 5 case
While technically compatible, the only orientation allowed by its design drastically reduces thermal performance. See other.

Temperatures stock cooler (low fan speed): 36C idle / 63C Prime (27C ambient)
Temps AC7LP (Max fans peed) 41C idle / 87C load (22C ambient, CASE OPEN, external fan)

Mounting system is the worst I've ever used. The worst. Broke 1 pin during installation, luckily after the mount was seated well-enough. - a tiny amount of dish soap does in fact aid the process slightly, had to use a penny to push the pins down to keep from gouging my thumb

Other Thoughts: Heat transfer is felt through pipes, so my temps are not a seating issue, its an issue of design. Parallel aluminum fins do not allow for any cooling of the MCP and the heatsink itself pushes against ram modules without a heatsink, thus severely limiting airflow to the chipset and away from the cpu itself. Do NOT use this HSF in conjunction with this Zotac itx board if you plan to put any significant load on your CPU. The stock HSF (the LP e7/8 model) works much better and is much less complex)

I use many AC products, even the GPU in this build has AC aftermarket cooling (and I love it), but this HSF greatly disappoints for this application.
Specs:
e8500 / 4gb geil green / zotac gf9300-d-e mini itx / ECS 9800GTE / Sugo 5 case / etc

1 out of 5 eggsnot worth the hassle

Pros: not a bad low profile cooler, reasonable price, however...

Cons: The mounting system is an unnecessarily complicated version of intel's already ridiculous push pin fastener system- a cheap backplate would substitute easily for 12 tiny components. I would have paid several dollars more for that backplate. these 12 components (3= 1 push pin), in my experience, do not even work together as intended, without some dremeling/filing. I lost patience and dremeled too far, resulting in one pushpin that could not hold the heatsink down. long story short, in creating a solution for this problem, my hand slipped and I scratched the **** out of my mobo

Other Thoughts: new mobo tomorrow, might try to rig something up on the dead one so I don't have to purchase a new cpu cooler

2 out of 5 eggsLow Profile, Quiet, mounting a pain.

Pros: 1. Fits on Asus P5N7A-VM in Lian Li PC-C37B fairly easily making for a quiet HTPC (using Qfan control in bios).

Cons: Pushpin mounting system is convoluted, and I had to use pliers to put adequate force on pins to get them to lock (simple finger push was not nearly enough.. board was flexing under the pressure). Worst part, one of my push-pins snapped, which almost made me gouge the motherboard with the pliers. In the end, it was only a good secure fit on 3 of the 4 feet, but it's making good contact and keeping cool.. but it's probably not removable/reinstallable at this point. Thumbs down for lame execution of installation kit.

Other Thoughts: It was less than half the price of the zalman low profile cooler I wanted.. so I decided to try it. I wish I had not at this point, as the first sign of trouble or need to reinstall I'll have to replace for sure due to shoddy design of cooler retention system.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed...

Pros: It's Arctic Cooling and it's sold by Newegg.

Cons: Be awared! The heatsink is so wide and it almost touchs the PSU thus blocks the airflows for both of the fan and PSU. Needs an extra fan to exhaust the heat out. Stock intel fan cools better.

Other Thoughts: Used to be a big fan of Arctic Cooling but not this one. A little suggestion for someone who's trying to build a HTPC. Try not to buy the kind of case that has the PSU next to the CPU. It makes sense that the CPU fan has to be lower and wider because of low-proflie, but putting two fans next to each other isn't a good idea for cooling and it also generates noise.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Value

Pros: This heatsink was successful at drawing much more heat off the CPU than my stock E5200 cooler. I was able to fit this on my Zotac Mini ITX 9300 motherboard without making any modifications. It presses up against the RAM slightly, but no reason for concern.

Cons: Is slightly louder than the stock intel E5200 fan. Height is about the same.

Other Thoughts: I had absolutely no problem installing this. Make sure you use a pocket knife and slightly trim the black pins, and SLIGHTLY grease the pin with some dish soap. I installed in under 2 minutes.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Quiet, good quality built heatsink. Works better than the stock heatsink/fan for the intel celeron procs.

Cons: Of course the small black pins, it's a joke, they could have made them a tad bit smaller/thinner to make it actually fit their product. It's an easy work around by filing the pins down a little.

Other Thoughts: I successfully installed this heatsink and fan in a Shuttle KPC-K45 barebone. The stock heatsink for the Intel Procs are loud and don't do much good. Specially if you only have the celeron all aluminum heatsink that comes stock. I DID have to modify the feet for the heatsinks to form fit to the shuttle's mobo, chips and capacitors were in the way for 3 out of the 4 feet. Dremelled for 5 minutes and they all fit perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsWell Designed Fan

Pros: Better than OEM quality, fit and finish. Installed on Intel 7400 in Asrock DualSata 2 MB. Installation kit is robust...maybe too much. Missed everything (although real close, like 1mm) from chipset heatsink. Fan is real quiet. Love the design, especially considering the price.

Cons: Fan is manufacturer specific...have to go to AC for replacement someday.

Mounting kit is a pain to install, thats what you get for such a rigid system. Having read some of the toil of other reviewers, I tackled the issue with just a touch of bar soap on the pins and a "small" pair of needle nose pliers. "Gently" push straight down, don't crack the MB, lock in place, it worked like a charm. The push pins are difficult to install without a little persuasion, maybe impossible, I didn't try it.

You need to test fit any aftermarket fan. Fan comes with thermal heatsink paste for CPU "stamped" on like wet paint. I wiped off for test fitting and applied more for final installation...no biggy, but if there is any question about fit...have some paste handy.

Other Thoughts: Never been so pleased about a "fan" purchase. Most heatsink-fans are either cheap, noisey, look pretty and don't work, or look pretty, work and cost a fortune. I think Intel should use as an OEM 775 heatpipe cooler, instead of the little noisey leaf blowers they sell with their CPU's. Go Artic Cooling...
