Pros: 4 pin connector. Quiet. Thermal compound included. The size is decent, and is the expected size for 92mm vertical. The build quality is really nice. I like how the fins are sealed on the sides to force air all the way through the heat sink.
Cons: The mounting brackets were a bit cumbersome for AM3.
Pros: Excellent heatsink! I have a Phenom II X6 1090T, and the CPU averaged at about 35C idling and up to 55C while gaming.

Summary: Facile a installer pâte thermique fournie et correcte ( sauf si on cherche le C° pres la il faut s orienté faire le top de la pâte) C'est le meilleur qui rendre dans le LC17 de silverstone, car comme souvent c est la hauteur qui limite l utilisation.
Summary: Il fait son Job et est assez silencieux mais audible, c'est du solide, le ventilo est un peu difficile à retirer mais sinon il est très bien, conseil: ne faites pas comme moi, suivez la notice est retirez le ventilo avant de fixer le radiateur à la carte mère.
