5 out of 5 eggsStill Chugging

Pros: Awesome orange UV fan
Cools well, and quietly
Inexpensive
Longevity

Cons: Scary to install
Collects dust

Other Thoughts: I originally had this on an intel E5200 OC'd from 2.5GHz to just shy of 2.9. This cooler now resides in my friend's computer, cooling his Athlon II X4 640. And to all those silly people who say it cools inadequately, I OC'd my friend's CPU to 3.355 GHz, and it idles at 38 C, and goes to around 70 under load. Ath those OC settings, it uses 126W TDP, as opposed to the stock 95W. I used generic ceramique thermal gunk. He is primarily a gamer, and his case is an NZXT Zero. He regularly plays games like CRYSIS WARHEAD, on relatively high settings.
If it fails to cool your CPU, it might be related to case ventilation. It is not the HSF's fault if your case and/or it's fans are junk.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap, Quiet and good fan!

Pros: What can I say it's been a year, and its still running strong, nice & quiet keeping my cpu cool!

Cons: after a year it'd sucked in quite a bit of dust.. Which means it is doing its job, using a Q-tip it was trivial to swipe out the dust to ensure it can keep on doing its job!

Other Thoughts: For the price you can't beat it!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent CPU Cooler

Pros: This CPU cooler does the job keeping my AMD 64 x2 processor from reaching high temperatures when I overclock. I recommend buying this CPU cooler and replacing the stock fan.

Cons: None!

1 out of 5 eggsWon't work with socket 940 as listed!!!!!!!

Pros: Looks to be a nice little aluminum HSF.

Cons: It's listed as working with socket 940, you know, AMD's 940 with just the two holes on two sides of the CPU, WELL IT WON'T. Works with 775 and the AMD with the clips on the sides and that's it.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these and paid for 2nd day air so I could get my project done THIS weekend! Looks like I now have to find a bracket to make these work or just get new ones all together!!! What a waste of time and money!!!

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Looks serious, takes a couple degrees off

Cons: Quite loud-which wouldn't be a problem if its performance matched the noise. Only took a few degrees of from a stock amd fan on my athlonx2 6000+ (old school I know). However, I believe that's more due to the re application of thermal grease rather than the heatsink itself.

Other Thoughts: Perhaps on a cpu not designed to go from 55-70 it'll work, however, I do believe I'll just get a cm 212 and be done.

5 out of 5 eggsSOLID

Pros: Smacked it in, its been three years and its still doing its job right. Replaced my processor like 3 times, not a problem. Quiet, cool orange color.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I wish it could make me a sandwich.

5 out of 5 eggsGood cooler

Pros: Bought this for a new rig I built for my mother. Fit in a mini ITX case with ease. keeps a Athlon x2 4600+ at 30C.

Cons: Noisy, but that can be fixed.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely NOT try to cool anything over 65 watts with this. I understand that is compatible with core 2 quads and socket am3s... but don't go putting this over your 1055T. I'm reading people complaining that it didn't cool there Phenom 955 and how it was hard to install. I have a Thermalright TRUE Black on my 955 and it keeps my 955 at 32C idle and 40C under load. And its 4x the size of this thing! As for for installing, it took 4 hands to install my TRUE, anyone with 2 hands can install this. It will NOT break a board.

Don't let the bad reviews sway you away from this cooler. If you need to cool a HTPC or a small dual core CPU, this will work better then a stock and run quieter. But if your trying to cool the latest and greatest, stop being cheap and fork or a few more dollars for a good heatsink with heatpipes.

4 out of 5 eggsGood and cheap

Pros: Good craftsmanship. Not too big like *other* circular CPU coolers. Keeps old socket 939 x2 nice and chilly. PWM fan control a plus.

Cons: Surface not smooth; I had to lap it some. not much, but it just didn't sit right with me. *ding* lost an egg. Fins will bend VERY easily if dropped or handled roughly. All my fins are fine, but just be aware.

Other Thoughts: Used in a home server on a 3800x2 socket 939. Quiet and keeps it below 45*C at all times. Hopefully will provide great sevice for a long time to come.

5 out of 5 eggsA Pleasant Suprise

Pros: It was really cheap, I think I paid around $16 for it w/ free shipping (Newegg ForTheWin), and it keeps an ancient LGA775 Pentium 4-HT really cool. It works REALLY well with Arctic Silver - Arctic Alumina

Cons: The only thing that I can think of is that the fins are a little flimsy, not worth knocking off an egg. Just means, be cautious while installing it.

Other Thoughts: Works great in a system I threw together to play old video games

Pentium 4 HT Oc'd to 3.4GHz
2BG DDR2 Ram
250GB HDD
nVidia 6200SE turbocache

3 out of 5 eggsSounds like a mini turbine

Pros: The HSF was relatively cheap, low profile

Cons: There is a high-pitched wining noise coming from the cpu fan! its shrill. The base looks as if it took all the fins, compresses them, and used a bench grinder to smooth the surface.

as for the cooling capability, it's having a hard time keeping a c2d e6300 below 70 degrees when overcloked to 2.4 GHz, with only a voltage of 1.25V! Not that impressive

Other Thoughts: Maybe (?) my fan is defective, but I believe it is just a characteristic of this model. there are other similarly priced models that I would buy if I could do it over.
