Very low profile. 95W is a stretch though.

  • Summary: Bought this with the intent to build a seriously compact/portable PC that provides decent power. It fits that role nicely, though I do kind of wish I had waited for the A8-7600; I think it would be a better fit.
  • Pros: Very low profile.
  • Cons: The manufacturer's website claim it can handle a 95W CPU with the fan at full speed. It gets a tad hotter than I would like (7 degrees from max temp under stress testing).

  • Summary: This controller is working flawlessly for the 2000 rpm fans that I have right now. Too bad the channels are not 30W each, but at this price I cant complain. I'm going to get anothor controller for my delta fans because they are really power hogs.
  • Pros: Has 6 channels, no more controlling fan speed via motherboard
  • Cons: not any

  • Summary: Low profile heatsink that leaves a good amount of space in my Silverstone Sugo. Cooling isn't great, but I will be adding a additional fan on top for a push\pull airflow. I'll update  ASAP.
  • Pros: Low profile.
  • Cons: Average cooling.

  • Summary: Had this in a M350, fits nice and snug, kept the i5 2500k nice and cool on a Intel H67 board. No issues what so ever, even though this CPU (TDP)is technically not supported by this board. This fan keeps it running nice and cool!
  • Pros: Low profile, can be run WITHOUT fan if required
  • Cons: Noisy at full speeds

  • Summary: Using this with the Asus P8H61-i mini-itx motherboard and the Lian-li PC-Q07 case. It does leave plenty clearance between the psu. Although, I'm not sure if it covers the pci-e slot. You would likely be able to fit something in there, but I'm pretty sure it would touch the heatsink pipes, maybe even push it a little. Check out the GeminII S524 heatsink.
  • Pros: Small low profile
  • Cons: None so far

ITX w/i7

  • Summary: the top fan I added with zip ties was this one:
  • Pros: Fit in an apevia x-fit 100, and I put a 15x80mm fan on top for push pull. So I have a 2600k z68 running fine slightly 4gigs @54c, in a rig the size of cigar box.
  • Cons: none.

Noisey, just a bit.

Gerardo D., Newegg
18 April 2012
  • Pros: Nice and low profile, good price point, build is great, nice looking unit.
  • Cons: This can be a noisy unit if it's on high and your system needs the cooling. For my build it seemed to have to be always 75 from full throttle half of the time. Although the heatsink is low profile it may tend to intefere with your CPU and RAM placement on a ITX build.

Almost perfect...almost

Sean B., Newegg
16 April 2012
  • Summary: Currently used as thus:
  • Pros: - Low Profile
  • Cons: - Did not work with fan flipped to blow "up" through the fins, which would have been ideal inside of the Lian-Li Q11-B Case I am using, so CPU heat exhausted straight out of the PSU exhaust fan. Fan continued to 'unexpectedly' rub on some unseen part of the Heatsink under low speeds (fine under high speeds...unbalanced fan blades maybe?)
