I replaced my case fans (Antec 300 stock fans) with Nexus D12SL-12BL 120mm fans. I did a bit of cable management to improve airflow, etc. I first bought the Cooler Master Hyper TX3, but found the 1156 mounting pins extremely flimsy, and the cooling performance sub-par. I am going to use it for my AMD-based file server. I searched for an alternative, inexpensive cooler, and decided to buy the Thermaltake Silent 1156 cooler. What a nice surprise this turned out to be! Everything was significantly better than the TX3: the packaging, the fan, even the fan cord. The mounting pins were sturdy and extremely easy to use. I applied the supplied thermal compound and mounted the fan without much effort. The fan takes up surprisingly little room in my case; it does not interfere with any other components.
I am using an Intel P55 board, which has a really nice temperature and fan management system, controlled in the BIOS or via free Intel software. Even at heavy load, the cooler remains cool and quiet. I ran my tests on a hot day (80F) and my CPU temperature at idle was around 35C, and peaking at 65C at full load (running Prime 95 CPU stress test). This is a significant improvement over the stock fan. I must point out that I run my CPU at stock speed (2.8 GHz), and do not overclock any of my system components. I have an EVGA GTX460 video card.
My case is set up with four fans: two front intake fans, one top and one rear exhaust fans. If your Thermaltake Silent 1156 fan is loud, chances are, the fan is running at a really high RPM.Read more ›
I am very happy and will probably order another one for my sons desktop because of the silent operation and the impressive performance. For 20+ bucks you can't go wrong with this cooler. Also, I have a standard to small ATX box and close to 2 inches of space so it will fit standard cases w/o any probs...
Again, this was my first purchase of a cooler and install...can't say anything about the thermal paste because it hasn't even been a week since install...i will update later...it is ok with temps now but A.Silver would probably only give better performance.
Installing is easy, at least on the standard Intel lines. Just secure the mounts to the baseplate with two screws apiece, apply the thermal grease, line it up and move it around a little bit to spread out the grease, line it back up and press the mount pins until each one locks into the motherboard.

It keeps my cpu cooler than expected even when gaming. On idle the RPMs are low, less than 1000. The only downside is the size, you may not be able to install a side door fan in... Read morePublished on December 10, 2012 by JP
CPUs usually come with their own cooling fan. True. But they are nothing like this product. When I started the computer I had to open the case to make sure the fan was running. Read morePublished on September 7, 2012 by WVB Jr
This fan runs quietly and cools the processor nicely. I recommend this fan for the I7 and running two monitors.Published on September 26, 2011 by Shopperoo
