I think that's the cheapest I've ever seen it [delivered]

Great budget fan - highly recommended

Shima

thought it was always this price, bought it for this 6 months ago, and haven't really seen it change,

Great fan if you can get those horrible plastic things to actually lock into the motherboard properly first time (I couldn't and knackered them, meaning I had to send it back) They might have replaced such a stupid idea as plastic as a locking idea since then - hope so
(Has to be said few others had the bother I had, TBF)

very good cooler, using it on my AMD CPU.

Was this via an AMD chip or the 775 adapter? I have a 775 board and looking to buy a couple of these as just getting into overclocking my pc. (E5300 is win for overclock )

Good price, tho SCAN sometimes has them around 11quid if you qualify for free delivery.

Have some heat

Just checked:- it was a Pentium Dual Core E6300 2.8GHz Socket 775
I gather the AMD ones didn't have the problem, but don't quote me.

Maybe, but also quite possible I had a dud one.
I also saw others complaining about the same thing, after it happened to me.

I'm going to be building some systems next month so I might get a few of these instead of having to put up with stock fans, good find OP!

Great Fan. I have an AMD x4 955 Black Edition CPU. The stock fan was driving me crazy in the heat (London) about 3 weeks ago. Ordered this fan. Easy to install, follwed advice about not fully tightening the brackets until cliped over the little notches. One of the best upgrades i've done on my PC. It is now very quiet. I paid £15 from SCAN, so this is well worth it.

It's a great heatsink + fan combo at this price. Been keeping my E5200 at 3.5Ghz for 2.5 years, 47C under load. Could probably go higher if I had a better motherboard. The heatsink is easy to fit but make sure that each plastic 'locks' are properly in position, it can be a bit fiddly depending on the layout of your case. Additionally, the fan can be quite loud. However, using Asus' Cool & Quiet and the standard preset it is no louder than my case fans during normal usage.

edit: I believe mine is probably the original revision, I'm not sure if there's any difference with this other than different brackets for the newer chipsets?

Yeah that's a problem with most heatsinks, I dunno if this one does, but with other you can get a backplate which you can attach to the underside of your motherboard and screw the heatsink on to. Much more secure, and much easier than using those crappy plastic clips, which seem to get damaged very easily. My Xigmatek heatsink came with the option, but I had to buy the back plate separately (only £5, well worth it).

Very pleased with my fan since installed pre-Christmas time. Note ARCTIC MX-1 thermal compound/grease is pre-applied, so no need to fork out for some expensive stuff, but get it right the first time.

Thanks OP, was in need of a new cooler for my aging core2duo . Ordered plus voted hot.

Thanks OP! Did some research and found out it is compatible with my CPU socket.

Ordered and heat added.

Watch out if you're using a low height case, won't fit in my antec fusion.

Bought one of these before listed on hotuk, beware though even with amazon prime it takes a while to arrive

Got one of these; good simple coolers, easy to install and good temperatures for the price. Also the fan's suspended by rubber loops to stop vibration noises, a feature which you don't get with coolers for like £50+.

From what i read it was the other way around AMD fittings had the issues ill give it a go me thinks

According to Toms Hardware it's only good for mild overclocking. If you plan to push your CPU past 120W+ it won't work for you. Still much better than stock fan.

tomshardware.com/rev…tml

I brought rev1 some years ago and was a good purchase since then. I am not sure what counts as quiet. as it does make a some noise when CPU gets too loaded but still awesome. Added heat

-Vipermk2

Currently pushing my E5300 from stock 2.6ghz to 3.6ghz on the stock cooler with this i could push it to 4ghz. Alas though just like DCX my ram would hold me back as its an old system with DDR2 800mhz


bit high but not too heavy and doesn't need too much clearance around cpu, plus last i checked the newer revisions have mounts for just about anything. blooming good price for a fan that been one of the best on the market for years.

A decent cooler for slightly older CPUs. I had one of the first version model of this, but had to replace it when the fan died. Fortunately the heatsink was sufficient to passively cool my Q6600, though idle temps had jumped to 65C with no overclocking.

IIRC this had a blanking plate you could fit that allowed you to control the speed (and therefore noise) of the fan

Easy to install, got one on my x6 with custom Turbo speed as sadly it does naff all else oc wise. Good cooler. Idle temp is 24 and load is only 10- 20 degrees higher, I think it looks very nice too

the hyper 212 plus is around the same price on the today only deals at scan quite often and is 15.99 on play and is def worth the couple of quid more for the difference in temperature.

Good Price hot form me

I'm currently running an i7 920 @2.8GHz on an Akasa Nero, not too impressed with temps (47 idle, 73ish full load), would this be any better?

Does anyone know if I can power these from a USB port (long story, though in short I need to use it to blow air from a cabinet) or with any other external prepherials?

Love this fan.

HEAT.

I have a Q6600 (which I believe is a 775 socket) in a Dell machine. The noise of the fan drives me mad (not least as I use the PC to feed a digital signal to some outboard DACs and a hi-fi set up).

Bearing in mind I will not be overclocking, is there a chance that (under normal to minimal cpu load) that swapping one of these for the stock fan could make the pc silent (or near as damn it?)

Advice appreciated.

It definitely will be quieter and your CPU will run much cooler. I had the same issue with my CPU, but the noise didn't really bother me, it was just that the stock fan is not good enough. So I replaced it with a Xigmatek heatsink. You need to bear in mind that this is a lot heavier than a stock heatsink, bigger, and taller, so it needs more room.

Would pay an extra £2.30 for this.

It's the better cooler out of the two.

I use this on my new AMD build and was amazed how much it did. It was about 4x the size of the fan that comes with the CPU, it runs super-quiet, and my PC runs at about 32 degrees while playing pretty intensive games. Great purchase.

how does it compare to this

the image is a bit misleading think it only comes with one fan,

ps voted hot

ive got a core2quad processor, if i want to change the default cooler fan for this one, will i have to clean the cpu up and put new thermal paste on? or can i simply swap the fans over? cheers

need to clean i but no need to put need thermal past on since this is already applied to this specific model
