Rosewill 220mm Computer Case Fan (Case Cooling Fan) - Transparent Frame & 4 Blue LEDs, Sleeve Bearing, Super Quiet Fan with LP4 4-Pin Connector; RCA-220-BL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I bought this simply for the Cool factor. That thing looked BAD-*** in my case, Like a propeller from a small plane. Sadly though I had to remove it when I installed a new heatsink the other day and it was prevent the case door from shutting....I'll miss it

Cons: no cons

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 7 years after I bought this little tube, I finally ended up using it to a Xigmatek Gaia 120mm heatsink and fan I installed...Between the Thermal Compound and the heatsink, my Phenom II x6 went from 45-60c with the stock heatsink and fan to under 20c on average.....need I say anything else? Everything else in the case is exactly the same. Nice to know something I bought in 2004 works like a charm in 2011

Cons: No cons

4 out of 5 eggs Great Heatsink fan was DOA 12/17/2011

This review is from: XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler LGA1150 Haswell Compatible

Pros: Absolutely love this heatsink. My old stock cooler had things running at around 46-50c idle and would occasionally go above 60c during the summer (desert dwellar) I had this sitting around for awhile because I wanted to wait until I was ready to revamp a few things in my rig all at once being that this thing require the motherboard to be removed.

It was actually much easier then I anticipated to install this on the back of the motherboard and had absolutely no issues installing this on a gigabyte 890gx board. I have this running in the push pull config and I kid you not, with a little Arctic Silver 5and this thing, my temps went from almost 60c maxed out to UNDER 20c on average, in amd overdrive, speedfan and the bios. That's just nuts ESPECIALLY when the fan that came with it was DOA and I got the continous beep. Once I figured out what the problem is, windows had already booted and the temperature monitor, even without the working fan it stayed under 21c, now, 17c when idling

Cons: Fan was dead and had to get a fan from a local store to replace it

Other Thoughts: Great heatsink combined with Arctic Silver 5 for 20-25 bucks, totally worth it
