Excellent and cheap!
Pros: First had a Freezer 7 Pro and my computer ran hotter! Bought this praying it would work, and it dropped my temps almost 10* right after installation. Also because the fan is so big it dropped my MOBO temps 10* too. I'd recommend this over all the fancy expensive ones any day.
Cons: Had to remove my motherboard to install it. There's only one fan speed, fast. I just hope the low price doesn't mean it won't last.
not too happy
Pros: Does okay for the price when it works.
Cons: Had this card a little over a year now, and for the past 6 months my computer constantly freezes, or the video just cuts out. I'm tired of screwing with this thing, and will have to buy a new one soon.
Overall Review: I guess it's time to try a new brand. A friend of mine runs a computer lab, and has had many problems with Diamond cards.
Cons: After reading all the reviews and doing some research I was convinced this was the fan to buy. My system temps went HIGHER overall. My cpu idle temp went up about 3 or 4 degrees, and my motherboard temps went into the red. This was with the side of my case removed too.
Overall Review: Also a very large unit. Definately make sure you will have room. For me the Northbridge heatsink was in the way of the bottom fins. I also think some of the parts are cheaply made. I had a hell of a time getting the push clips to work properly. The Stock Intel one's just pop right in.
Pros: Only had this cpu a few weeks, and so far it works nicely. I haven't really pushed it yet though, but it runs extremely hot in my case. I had to take off the side of my case , and that dropped it a few degrees. I will have to order another fan as others have suggested.
Cons: Runs very hot. Even under normal conditions.
