ITEM DOES NOT MATCH DESCRIPTION
on October 17, 2014
I gave this one star, despite the fact that it is a good item and a good value, simply because IT IS NOT WHAT I ORDERED. If your seller is the Parts Collection, do not count on receiving part D60188-001. I received D34017-001. I do not appreciate sellers (and Amazon) playing fast and loose with item descriptions. Just because an item resembles the description from 10 feet away is not good enough. In this case, I have the two heatsinks side by side and they are ENTIRELY DIFFERENT. D34017 has a taller heatsink, a 9-blade fan (vs 7), but less than half the amperage of the D60188 (.28A vs .6A). The fan manufacturers are different. D34017 weighs 17 oz vs 15.7oz, which is neither a plus nor a minus, just an illustration that these are not the same product. D34017 has a rectangular, white pad of coupound instead of the familiar 3-band gray comound. Since Intel doesn't document their heatsinks, I don't know what this stuff is so I'll be replacing it with a known compound. Finally, the photo is of a D34017 because the fins go opposite the direction of the D60188.
