Deal is back. $9.99 (plus tax) - $5 mail-in rebate with free Prime shipping from Amazon: https://amazon.com/dp/B00K7809O2

It's a decent deal at $10, but for $5 dollar bucks, arguably the best cooler you can buy if you want to upgrade your stock Intel or AMD CPU cooler (with the exception of certain Ryzen / AM4 coolers).
  • Dimensions: 93 x 80 x 140 mm
  • Patented Dual Loop heat pipe design for double the heat pipe to CPU contact area
  • Patented Continuous Direct Contact (CDC) base for quick and effective cooling with minimal thermal resistance
  • Snap-on brackets for quick and easy installation and removal of fan
  • Easy-to-use, universal mounting system for all common Intel and AMD platforms
  • Compact size for increased case and motherboard compatibility
  • 92mm fan for maximized cooling from a compact heatsink
  • Patented Dual Loop heat pipe design for double the heat pipe to CPU contact area
  • Patented Continuous Direct Contact (CDC) base for quick and effective cooling with minimal thermal resistance
  • Snap-on brackets for quick and easy installation and removal of fan

is it even worth the effort for a small improvement from the stock cooler(not include AM4)?

this cooler does not require a back plate for installation: Push pins for Intel and push bracket for AMD. It is the same installation.

Temperature drops is nice, and it looks much better than the stock cooler.

I suppose it depends on what your goal is. I upgraded for the sole reason that my stock Intel cooler is comparatively loud. By and large, AMD is no better. I already had decent case fans, so my computer is extremely quiet, now. The fact that installation is easier and it looks better are just bonuses.

Better cooling is better cooling, and this is almost certainly better in every way. Of course, if you're not OC'ing and your case has good air flow already, a stock cooler should be able to keep your CPU cool enough even at peak usage (though it will likely be loud). There are other factors - for example, which CPU you have and how long you're running it at peak - that determine how much better this will be than stock.

My personal opinion is that stock coolers (with a few exceptions) are literally only better than nothing. This is the bare minimum I would put in any standard* desktop.

* Obviously certain configurations designed to be extremely low power and silent - such as an HTPC - would not benefit, nor would this fit the form factor.

No clue. It will definitely be quieter, but some people don't care about how loud their machine is. If you're running a stock cooler, this is an improvement in every way. Whether that improvement is worth $5 is a personal choice.

I hear you. Cooler Master rebates suck, too. I've always gotten them, though.

My brother gave me one of these. This fan is so loud it drives me nuts. In the market for something new and quiet. Sometimes I want to play games on my PC but this thing gives me a headache. According to a sound meter on my phone, my computer is 60-70db when playing any game with this cpu fan.

Well, I never had any problem with the rebates(NE/CM/ASUS etc)
But it just truly a hassle to submit soft & hardcopy. andthe LONG wait... once up to 3- months
And also make sure track the date or put in your reminder. I almost lost my 20$ rebate ! I have to call them and ask them to issue the rebate for me... meaning another one month to wait...

I'm not sure I'd consider a phone anywhere sensitive enough to get a good noise reading, but if it's loud enough for you to complain about it, your fan is defective or completely worn out.

At normal operation, the fan should be about 17 dBA. Peak of 35 dBA: http://us.coolermaster.com/produc...er-t2.html

A lot depends on your system (processor, case air flow, what you're playing, other components, etc), but mine has never gotten anywhere near 35 dBA with prolonged gaming.

You can always just replace the fan.
