Nice Fan

 

Just what I needed for my older hardware based server. Just wish both came with mounting brackets so I wouldnt have to suffer downtime to install 2nd CPU when replacement cooler comes in.

Works great for my L5420 ; Will Call made it for a quicker deployment

Deployment went with 1 CPU short as 1/2 coolers ordered came without mounting hardware. RMA'd with newegg

Pretty Loud Cooler

 

Newegg has been serving me for 10 years. Keep up the good work

Inexpensive Xeon proc cooler. Cools the cpu without issue. Easy to install

Loud for a workstation or desktop fan. Luckily for me this machine is in the basement but it's so loud I can hear as soon as I open the basement door

Great LGA771 cooler

 

As with anything, hit the manufacturers site and RTM (read the fricking manual) before you purchase products online.

I am happy I purchased these fans. Noise level is not an issue unless your fans are over 80% duty ; Install was easy as pie with included mounting brackets

Not a con for me, but if your motherboard does not have 4 pin power connectors I would not buy these. If you plug them into a 3 pin fan power connector they will run at 100% all the time and you'll be very unhappy with the noise. The 4 pin connectors...

Works well enough

 

Newegg needs to separate PWM 4 pin fans from the 4 pin Molex power fans. Yes, go into BIOS and reduce the speed of this fan. Without BIOS support the fan will run only at full speed.

For normal use this fan slows down and still cools well. After some gaming the fan is loader, but still not the leaf blower it can be at full speed. The base has Thermal paste applied, and there is also a tube of 10% silver paste

The included backplates are great to have, but there is no documentation on assembly. It's not all copper, but is as expensive as an all copper cooler

prepare for takeoff

 

I have quad core Intel chips which have overheated under a heavy load since day 1. I was running the fancy dancy swiftech aluminum pin heatsinks. Turns out that I didn't really need new coolers, I needed a fan which has 4 wires, and has variable speed...

Finally I've solved my overheating problem. The fan has the coveted 4 wire connector which attaches to the motherboard. Meaning that the MB will control the fan speed ; When things get hot, the fan speeds up ; At normal operating speeds the fan is quiet

At any RPM over 3000 the fan gets very loud. It becomes very annoying after only 30 minutes for me

Good heatsink

 

Running dual Xeon e5450 chips on supermicro mb.

This heatsink is definately much better than the Intel fan that ships with the xeon 5450 cpu. I tested this heatsink also against Dynatron's all copper H6EG heatsink also for socket 771. The H46G kept the cpu about 8 C cooler at full cpu load than the...

Included heat sink compound is not very good, so you should order some extra if you buy this heatsink

Absolutely recommended

 

INTEL XEON QC X5482 (3.20GHz/1600FSB/2x6MB) CPU, (1) Velociraptor WD300 GB, Kingston 16GB (2GBx8) FB-DIMM DDR2 800, NZXT SEN-001LX Fan/Temp Controller, TYAN S5397AG2NRF 771 Intel 5400, Edimax EW-7728In Wireless, Dynatron H46G CPU cooler, Asus Xonar DX...

Nice fan, 4 pins which provides MOBO auto speed controls. Steer away from fan controllers and think twice if you are going to use it only for CPU fans. It is a 4 pin Fan and such in my case, NZXT Sentry comes with 3 pin attachment where there is no way...

No cons yet. Perfect size for AC type heatsinks. It doesn't block air flow. In one of the previous reviews, it is recommended for a fan replacement with VANTEC Tornado and personally I do not see any point. That beast is nice too if you need a hair...

Works Fine, Grease terrible

 

Dual Intel Xeon E5410 Harpertown 2.33GHz, TYAN S5396A2NRF Dual LGA 771 Intel 5400, 2x Kingston 4GB 240-Pin DDR2 FB-DIMM DDR2 667, Western Digital VelociRaptor WD3000GLFS , XFX PVT88PYDD4 GeForce 8800GT XXX 512MB, COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP,...

I also used these on dual Xeon E5410s in a Tyan S5396. Fits perfectly. I can't speak as to the cooling difference as I did not use the Xeon stock fans at all. I don't think these fans are loud at all. By far the loudest thing in this build is the XFX...

Lost an egg because the thermal grease that comes with these coolers is absolutely terrible. If you buy these you will need to buy separate grease. The grease did not spread, it seemed very old. Ran to my local computer store and purchased an...

Great for the Price

 

These coolers worked great with my Asus DSBF-D motherboard and were not loud at all when properly used with the BIOS fan controllers.

Keeps the system cool.
