    Not as Good as OEM, September 23, 2008

    The fan on this new unit is much smaller than the stock OEM processor fan that came with my computer. The aluminum heatsink is also slightly smaller than the stock unit so that the two, stock hold down clamps are loose. The only thing that is really holding the heatsink in place is the thermal compound stuck to my processor! Metal hold down clamps are provided in the package, but they are too small to fit. Perhaps they could be bent and made to fit.

    I just recieved my heatsink and fan today through amazon.com. So far I must say that I am impressed with it, as far as a heatsink and fan go. It is built solid, fits into my 478 socket perfectly, and plugged right in. It came with two clamps that hold the heatsink and fan in place, and it is seated firmly with nothing loose. The fan does look smaller than what I had expected, but the design is great and I don’t forsee any problems with the smaller size. It covers the heatsink well enough for good circulation. This heatsink also comes with a packet of heat sink compound paste to apply to the processor – which I wish was more obvious on the product so I did not have to buy a seperate tube of this thinking it did not come with. Overall a good heatsink and fan, and for the price I can’t imagine anything better.

    Not a whole lot of detail other than that. Installed easily, keeps CPU cool, and doesn’t make too much noise.
