Summary: this is a fresh install on a core 2, 2.83G Q9550. I'll let you know how it goes. Tip: use artic silver5
Pros: Small size will fit into a Antec 900 case with the side fan installed.
, You don't have to pull the motherboard out of a 900 case to install it.
, Idles at 40C but does not get hotter than 50C after an hour of prime95 which is in keeping with the hyper 212 which will not fit in a 900 case unless ...
Cons: Does'nt give you the low ambient temps that the cooler master hyper 212+ does. (Room temp plus 3 or 4 degees on ide)
