4 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-6300

Pros: I don't know why some of these reviews have said that this HSF is difficult to install, it's not, at all. IMO, it was easier to install than the stock HSF. It's super quiet, and doesn't take up too much space. Dropped my idle temps from 52c, to 14c, and load temps from 63c, to 34c. Comes in a nice box, and no assembly is needed. The only manual work needed is placement, and tightening of clamp screws after they are clamped.

Cons: The only con I can think of would be size, and that's only because I know some may have trouble with RAM interference. Also, on the Newegg product page, they failed to list this HSF as AM3+ compatible. Which is why I was hesitant to purchase, it was only after reading some reviews from users that have the same CPU that I felt comfortable to purchase. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I have an MSI-970A G43 motherboard, which is an AMD AM3+ socket. In the cons I wrote that Newegg doesn't list this as AM3+ compatible, however, the product box says the product is compatible with the following sockets: FM1, FM2, FM2+, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, and 939. I didn't read the box specs until after installation, which is why i was surprised installation was a breeze.

For those of you that are wondering about RAM interference, I will write down the dimensions of the HSF, because I looked and looked but never found the dimensions. They are: 105(L) x 113(W) x 84(H) mm, and weighs 428g.

If you have a cpu above 95w, then I suggest you purchase a different, more powerful HSF. I use this HSF on a AMD FX-6300 hexacore overclocked at 4.0Ghz. Even at 4.0Ghz, my idle temps stay under 15c.

If you have an AM3+ socket and you are wondering if this would be compatible, don't worry- it will fit, the manufacturer's box lists AM3+ as compatible, although I don't know why Newegg doesn't. The only problem I would worry about is RAM interference. On my MSI-970A G43 motherboard, i have about 2mm left between RAM and the HSF. So use the dimensions I listed above to make sure you won't encounter any interference.

Other than all that, it's a great product. Easy installation, huge temperature drops, and fits with just enough space to remove/install RAM without complication. I would have given it 5 eggs, but Newegg failed to list it as AM3+ compatible, because it is via manufacturer box details.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for 95W TDP and lower AMD

Pros: Excellent price (especially when on sale).
Nice, quiet Arctic Cooling fan.
4-pin PWM.
Good quality thermal compound pre-applied.

Cons: Slightly large.
Need to be careful with the mounting clips.

Other Thoughts: I picked this up to cool an AM2+ Athlon 64 5000 that had been unlocked to full quad-core operation.
It fits nicely (though snugly) on the motherboard, the mounting clips tightened down with no problem. You just need to take a moment to examine the cooler to understand how it works and be sure you don't over-tighten the mounting screws.
The cooling fan is exceptionally quiet, near silent.
This HSF is definitely on the short list for low-power AMD builds.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well With Phenom II X4 925 95w

Pros: -Able to Cool A Phenom II X4 925 Rev.2 95w to relatively decent Temperatures. To give you an estimation I'm able to Idle Around 28C and 45C at Full Load.

Cons: -More than Possible you will have to remove Mobo from case to get this thing in as clipping system AMD's use is a pain with this cooler when you can't see what your doing.
-Possibility of RAM obstruction if your RAM is situated close to the CPU, so your measurements before purchasing.

Other Thoughts: I did a previous review of this item with it cooling a Athlon X2 64 5600+(which it did Marvelously),so for others reference i decided to write a new review for a different CPU since I'm so pleased with this product . From reading other reviews I was a little concerned when I acquired a Phenom II X4 925 95w as I was reading it was not able to adequately cool this CPU. Fortunately to my experience it was able to cool it just fine and maintain the very reasonable temps i posted. One other thing to note is the case I have this system situated in has very good air flow having 3 intake fans and 2 Out going fans not including the PSU, So this could be another factor in getting such great results from this aftermarket heatsink.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy Computer!

Pros: 1 - Price, very inexpensive
2 - Ease of install, took me less than 15 minutes
3 - Quiet, can't even hear it running
4 - Easily Outperforms the stock fan
5 - Makes me happy because I can play my games again!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: This fan is only for AMD so if you're processor is Intel keep shopping. Install was a breeze, pop off the dead one, clean up the old thermal paste from the processor, and line it up, snap it in, tighten the screws, plug it in and WHAM! You're done! Best under $50 I have spent in a long time. Yes the cost is 23.99 but once I added 2day shipping to Hawai'i the price petty much doubled. All in all I am very pleassed. My computer is up and running again. Running cooler than it was before and much quieter(Guess I know where all that noise was coming from before LOL).

5 out of 5 eggsGood alternative for stock coolers

Pros: + Not as large as "tower" style coolers and will not interfere with RAM heat shields regardless of their design or size.
+ Cost: much cheaper than many choices
+ Noise level: MUCH quieter than stock cooler thanks in part to unique fan design. There is precious little housing to cause fan noise and the fan is suspended over the heatsink via rubber, anti-vibration mechanisms. Very trick.
+ Installation is a breeze. One of the easiest coolers to install. Even easier than stock.
+ PWM fan allows motherboard to manage fan speed
+ SIX year warranty!

Cons: - AMD only
- Larger than stock
- Unusual fan design: prohibits simple fan replacement after failure. The fan blades are more exposed so wire management near the heatsink will be key.
- The heatsink and fan shroud are two different bits, and NOT affixed to each other. The fan is held to the heatsink via pressure once installed. This works quite well but keep it in mind when removing it from the package so you don't drop 1/2 the assembly.
- Cools marginally better than stock
- Do not over-tighten the two screws during installation. The screw heads are small and the can easily be tightened to the point where they push through the plastic of the fan shroud rendering the device ineffective.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a heatsink which will improve your CPU temps, or if you intend to try overclocking, this is NOT the heastsink/fan for you. If you are looking for an effective device to replace a failed stock device or need a device for a CPU which lacks a stock heatsink, then this is a very solid choice.

I used this on HTPC build in a Silverstone GD09B case Item#: N82E16811163257, a Gigabyte 970A-UD3P motherboard Item#: N82E16813128651, with an Athlon II X3 450 Rana CPU Item#: N82E16819103886. This is a 95W part so it should be representative of most AMD CPUs.

I ran Prime95 In-place FFTs for hours. The CPU never exceeded 45 degrees C. The fan noise level was so quiet as to be inaudible with the case on the table top next to the monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsAs Advertised

Pros: It is very quiet, and it cools my AMD CPU much better than the stock fan. Low profile does not torque the MB. Price was not a decision factor for my on this, but low cost is always good.

Cons: It barely fits in the AM3+ area on the MB. This makes it a little tricky to mount, but I got it in without any problems.

Other Thoughts: I am using it on an GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 with a AMD FX-6300. When I push the AMD FX-6300 hard, it gets a little warm, but always stays well within the CPUs limits. The AMD FX-6300 is rated a 95 watts. I wouldn't use this cooler for anything more.

3 out of 5 eggsJust O.K.

Pros: Seemed to work adequately on my AMD Phenom II X4 955

Cons: Can be difficult to install and remove from Main Board.
When I removed it to as Arctic Ice Silver; the plastic rings around the fan broke!

Other Thoughts: Not really happy with the cheap thin plastic rings around the cooling fan, nor the difficulty when installing or removing the unit.

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't fit

Pros: Looked cool

Cons: Didn't fit on motherboard, had to use stock cooler. Machine would not boot with it attached because it was pressing unevenly on the CPU... dangerous.
