4 out of 5 eggsMet expectations...

Pros: Cheap
Relatively Quiet
Performs better than stock CPU cooler
Seems to be built well
Lower profile design allows for installation in some HTPC cases (I have a Silverstone GD05)

Cons: Back plate required
Included thermal compound did not perform well (possibly my fault)

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a decent fan, but you may want to use something other than the included thermal compound. It's the "white goo" variety and the temps from my initial install were on par with the readings I was getting with my stock cooler (though it's quite possible I applied too much). I reseated the heatsink using a generic "silver" compound and my temps under load (DayZ) were reduced by about 10 degrees from 82 to 72 for an i5 2500k which is more than acceptable. Note that this cooler requires the use of a back plate (I happened to miss that rather important bit of info in the specs), so you'll need to remove your motherboard for the install if you're swapping out an existing cooler.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Darn Good

Pros: Easy to install
Reasonably Quiet
Fairly Cool
100mm fan
Copper Core on the Heatsink

Cons: Needs to be held down tightly when screwing in the first screw
Not extremely Quiet
Not good for overclocking

Other Thoughts: I know this is an aftermarket cooler for Intel LGA 1150 / 1155 processors and motherboards, but I actually bought it for an Angelica2 motherboard from HP that actually uses intel AM3+ processors. HP is weird and has many motherboards (like another codenamed "Justin" I think?) that have AMD Processors, but require Intel coolers.

This fan is a good replacement for the noisy stock Cooler Master CM12V that came with the Hewlett Packard HPE H8-1234 that I installed it in. I had to hold it down tight when I put the first screw in because it would fall over if I didn't, but once I got the second one in (on the corner diagonally opposite of the first) it stayed in place fine.

For such a small cooler, it cools reasonably well and the fan noise isn't too much (there's no high pitched whine even at max speeds the way a stock cooler with an 80mm fan might have), but at the same time it's not whisper quiet, and for a hot 95 watt TDP processor such as the 6120 that I used it on, it's just adequate for regular use, not overclocking.

When I tested the temperatures at max load running Dragon Age: Inquisition, the CPU hit a max of 60 degrees, which is exactly the maximum safe zone for AMD 6100 series processors. Sure I used Arctic Silver 5, which takes some time to reach its maximum potential, but I still feel that my CPU with this heatsink runs much too hot to safely overclock.

All in all, this is a good cooler for a good price, and a great option if you don't want to take the motherboard out and install a backplate and such.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the Job Nicely

Pros: This fan is a good replacement for random stock junk from Intel. I bought 2 Intel CPUs within a month and one has a nice little copper core on the HS, one does not (go Intel). This unit not only has a larger, more quiet fan, but it secures to the mobo with screws and a composite back plate. I liked the design and installation, There's nothing like having one of those nasty little clips on the stock cooler come undone after you deliver an expensive working system. No buzzing or vibration at any tested speeds. I like the sexy blue. I'd buy this again for any mild mannered Intel workstation (non-gaming).

Cons: It wasn't free and didn't come with dancing girls (or guys) in the box.

Other Thoughts: I have this on an Intel i3-4500 Haswell using the integrated video and it keeps the unit at 60c during the stress test from Intel.

5 out of 5 eggsLOGISYS Computer IC231PWM

Pros: Very good. I used this temporary until I bought my water cooler. I used this with my LGA-1155 i5 CPU. Kept it cool even under slight heavy load. I put this baby away as a back up when my water cooler goes.

Cons: Replacement fans are pretty much impossible to find.

5 out of 5 eggsA well-kept secret

Pros: Heavy, well made
Copper core with mirror finish on bottom
Screws down securely with backing plate
Easy to install
Silent fan
Cools an i3-3225 silently and effectively

Cons: Proprietary fan -- if it dies it would be hard or impossible to replace
Availability -- is it really discontinued??

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a cooling solution for a i3-3225 H77 micro-ATX build that would be quiet and a step up from the stock fan. The minute I took this out of the box, I was impressed with its heft and build quality. The mounting system is much better than push-pin type, and its really easy to install. I ran the IntelBurn Test with it and the temps never exceeded the high 30's. PWM fan control works great -- you really can't hear it in the Antec NSK 3340 case.

I ordered another one from elsewhere for another build -- seems like just my luck that when I find something really great its discontinued!

5 out of 5 eggsGood stock Intel replacement

Pros: Cheap, looks nice, quiet, gets the job done, easy instally

Cons: Back bracket is kind of bulky, but no big deal

Other Thoughts: Replaced stock Intel cooler on my I7 3770K, added Arctic Silver 5 and temps are down 10C. Not at all noisy, and installation was easy enough on my Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H board, but had to use a good amount of pressure to get the screws to catch on to the back plate.

The back plate does bend slightly due to backing plate of motherboard. I was afraid it might snap, but no problems. The cooler is very securely attached and won't budge.

I am glad I made this purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsEXCELLENT

Pros: Quite and keeps my Quad Core nice and cold. Fan is built good & holds up well.

Cons: None so far...

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor. I cant complain at all how much better this Heatsink & Fan is, compared to the piece of junk stock Heatsink & Fan came with on my cpu.
