Significant reduction in temperatures on my overheating CPU

Summary: Having problems with high operating temperatures on my i7-4790K CPU and the stock cooler that comes with it. This cooler reduced my idle temperatures by 1 ~ 3 Celsius, and most importantly, reduced my peak CPU temperatures during heavy operations (e.g.
Summary: Cooler improved idle temps on an i7 about 10-12C compared to stock Intel cooler which is pretty good! That being said I don't think it's powerful enough for any aggressive overclocking.
Pros: Inexpensive, sturdy, light. More effective than Intel stock cooler. Fan assembly is very easy to remove for installation and cleaning.
Cons: Fan is close to motherboard and the height can't be adjusted which makes it incompatible with the RAM slots on some mobos. The cooler is attached with this bolt/flat spring assembly that is difficult to tension correctly and difficult to access. The tension will need to be adjusted several times ...
Summary: My main Issue with this heatsink is that it blocks the first RAM slot!!
Pros: Keeps CPU cool (AMD FX 4350) even at overclock the temps reach 48°C and stays there.
Cons: For AMD users. The fan will only be able to face straight up or down. And if you have a mid size ATX motherboard chances are when you install this cooler you wont be able to fit the first RAM stick because the heat sink is in the way!!!
Summary: I haven't tested this with an overclocked CPU/APU so I can't comment on how it would perform under those conditions. When my computer is in idle mode, my APU actually idles at -2C, but I will say that the computer is located in a home office in the basement, where the room temperature averages 68F.
Pros: It's cheap and a great alternative to your stock CPU cooler. I'm using it with my A10-7850K APU (at stock) and it never goes above 30C at full load.
Cons: The cooler isn't oriented correctly. The fan points towards the top or bottom (depending on how you mount it) of your case, instead of pointing towards the front or back of your case. CPU coolers should be manufactured in a way that the fan can always point towards the back of the case, allowing ...
Summary: Keeps my 4790k not oc'd at 75 max while under full load for 2 hrs. kind of afraid to see the temps on OC but this thing is great for the price and waaayyy better than the stock intel cooler. Also make sure your case has proper airflow! The negative reviews could be because of that!
Summary: The heatsink paste that drys and hardens is what kept the cpu tight to the heatsink over the years. I was trying to avoid pulling the motherboard to mount the heatsink. Lazyness......
Pros: Cools the intel 8400 better than stock intel cooler. Has 4 pin fan connector. Worked well for years.
Cons: I would not recommend ANY heatsink that uses push pin mounting. This heatsink worked well for years until it was removed and re installed.The push pins cannot keep heatsink tight against the cpu.
