of the stock AMD heatsink and fan. If you're looking to end the annoying noise this cooler did it for me.
It did come thermal-compound on the bottom of it. Never changed a CPU cooler before. So, I cleaned the CPU
with a kit purchased here on Amazon. Then dabbed Arctic Silver 5 on the CPU. The thermal compound is like a gray
tacky glue-grease and not the easiest stuff to work with. Check on You Tube on how to do it.
Which I did not. Like usual ...I'm following my do as I say ...not as I do credo.
EZ to snap in place once you figure out where the tabs from the base are and make sure tabs are fully engaged.
Then push the lever down, pesto-amazo job is done.
I replaced the stock fan on the AMD Athlon 2.31 X64 dual core 4400+.
Posting a comparison photo of this cooler vs. the undersized stock one.
Please look at the Arctic Silver website, or You Tube for instructions to put on the thermal grease.
Amount used is a lot less then I figured, like the size of a piece of rice in the center of the CPU.
There's a couple of different ways to do it. I gained knowledge is the important thing even though
I put way too much on and will have to redo it. Too much can leak over the side of the CPU and
Arctic Silver is a silver compound that conducts juice and possibly short out the CPU.
The day after. OK after smearing what I thought was too my goop (Arctic 5 compound)this raised my doubts.
Downloaded a program: Core Temp 1.0 RC4 that monitors the CPU heat on multiple core processors, like my AMD 2.31
4400 that WAS top of the line in 2005.Read more ›
It is nearly silent and is very cool-to-the-touch. Which to me means it's doing its job. I have it on a 65W Athlon64 X2, so it's not like it has that much heat to dissipate anyways.
The heatsink is really easy to install, and just requires a flick of the lever instead of having to push down hard on a tension clip with a screwdriver. I onced stabbed and ruined a motherboard when I slipped off the clip with a screwdriver before.
I really can't believe how quiet it is. With this fan and a new Antec EarthWatts powersupply, I can't even hear my PC at night anymore.
Also, this has one of the best lifetime expectancies, and a 6 year warranty which is nearly unheard of for heatsinks/fans.
I needed a low-profile heat sink/fan for a case that doesn't have a lot of room over the processor. My original one was perfect (and lasted a very long time before one of the two fans went out), but I can't find it anymore. This one seemed smaller from the pictures, and of course (like an idiot) I didn't read the dimensions. :)
Suffice to say, it is quite a bit bigger than I expected, and just a *tiny* bit too tall to fit in my case.
Bought this for an old eMachine T-3104 to replace the CPU fan/Heatsink as it was very dirty (Cigarette Smoke) and old. Product arrived in a timely manner (OK Shipping for what I selected based on price) and as advertised, new. Product had some negative reviews about the fan not starting at all and or needing to be pushed to start. But I took a chance. Sure enough, upon installation and firing the machine up, the fan hesitated momentarily and then started reluctantly. Afterwards and upon subsequent start-ups, the fan needed assistance to start, but once going it seemed to work OK. So, I tried removing it from the boards CPU/Fan post and connected it to the boards SYS/Fan post. Lo-and-Behold, the fan fired right off with no hesitation and continued to start and run upon each subsequent re-start. The only real down-side to this re-configuring was that the CPU Fan Speed module in the BIOS would not display the speed. For that, I noticed that the would be CPU Fan Speed was now displayed in the System Fan Speed Module. No real biggy thing, as the Cooler was doing a more than adequate job at keeping the CPU (Sempron) running at a good temperture (34-37C.). I can only guess that there is/was some voltage difference between the boards two fan post? But the product did work for me, finally. So I took off one star!
