Pros: I have a HP p6210y, which has known heat issues. I got this to cool my added video card. My PC had been running so hot that the system had shut it down (GPU too hot). The fan occupies the slot above my video card. It has kept it at a reasonable temperature (checking with SpeedFan). My other fans do not run quite as much. I was able to put back on the side panel to my PC.
MY CORE TEMPERATURE IS 10 DEGREES (Celsius) LOWER!!!!
My GPU temperature stabilized at an acceptable level.
Another advantage is that it does not take up two slots the way some of the alternatives do.
It was very easy to install. After placing it in the PCI slot, the 4-pin power connector (large) allows other things to be connected in case you have no spares.
Cons: Clicks a bit (not really very loud) when it runs, but is quieter than the (jet engine) fans that came with my PC. (I cannot hear it when the other fans are running.)
Other Thoughts: I compared the other choices in this category, and selected this after reading all of the reviews and comparing prices. Even if it lasts only a year or so, its low cost will make it practical to buy another to keep my PC temps in check.READ FULL REVIEW
