Summary: I am running an AMD Phenom 9550 Agena 2.2GHz AM2+ 95W Quad-Core with 4GB 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Crucial Ballistix Tracer RAM
Pros: Asus got another winner here! This thing rox at cooling! I dropped almost 20 degrees from stock.
Cons: When I mounted this on my BIOSTAR TForce TF8200 AMD MoBo but it had to be rotated 90 degrees....thereby making the lion's face sideways. Now, this is no big deal....just took a little away from the asthetics.
Summary:  This cooler comes with three types of mounting hardware, 2 for Intel and the single spring assembly for AMD. There's a possiblity that using an INTEL chip/Moptherboard this cooler could be mounted to allow four memory chips with high heat sinks.
Pros: Subtle Blue lite illuminates a hugh quad leaf behemoth, arguably the only component larger is the PSU. It sits atop an AMD Phenom Black Quad core 9950/140W---so cooler is much much better. 2X2gig Corsair Dominators in an Antec Mini P180. CPU temp now hovers around 40 degrees C. Fit and finish is ...
Cons: Without partially removing a few fin rows or using memory with smaller, lower heat sinks--can only use two out of four memory banks. Even with lower profile memory this heatsink/cooler would have to be removed to access the memory.
Summary: The metal push pins used as the attachment mechanism for Intel cpus to the mobo is something I wasn't crazy about but I was impressed when I saw how firmly they held. Get it. You won't be disappointed.
Pros: I've got this heatsink installed above an Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2.8 GHz cpu and it's dropped the average temperature 10 C during the roughly 10 hours since it's installation. I'm using Arctic Silver as the thermal paste.
Cons: It's BIG. It'll be a tight fit if it's used next to RAM with heatsinks on them.
Summary: I have everything in a mid tower and it didnt have a lot of air flow through it. I have 2 Sparkle 9800GTX+ cards, 3 HDD and an optical. So I have a lot of stuff in a small case and a lot of heat so I was having some heat issues but most was in the MB.
Pros: I had this on a Asus M3N78-EM board with a 7750 AMD and it ran at 35-41. Now I put it on my new built, Asus Crosshair Formula II, AMD 9950. Runs great and cool. Next I am going to try it on the new AM3 955 and see how it works.
Cons: Nothing major, if you have tall RAM you may run into issues of hitting the cooler.
Summary: Still laughing at the previous post, can't think of anything else right now....lol
Pros: Works good but for the price you can find better. A CPU Fan, you are the dork of all dorks... You go on to say copper is the enemy and only dorks use it, then in your next paragraph you say how you have cooper heatpipes on your mobo and how great they are???? LOL I got a kick out of it anyways...
Cons: Copper is a better conductor than aluminum don't ya know?
Summary: I have heard that Arctic Silver paste is the best, but in light of the all up ASUS combos I honestly feel, whos to say where the distinction is? After seeing the MOBO and specs, I am more than confident in their application of paste.
Pros: I agree with this heatsink's design. It sends natural messages to me. Going with an unknown method or shape is not where its at. My gut instinct tells me this fan works well. The fact that it does not have any copper and the conduits and plates are all aluminum (I think) sold me on this in 10 sec...
Cons: I could very well say that I wish I new before I bought it which board it works on I guess. I did have some questions as to its compaitbility with my particular CPU (AMD Phenom II Quad Core) or MOBO. I figured ASUS + ASUS should be fine, but thats not where its at. How about a list? Maybe I am ju...
Pros: Put it on an AMD 7750 2.7 overclocked to 2.9. With the stock cooler it was running at 55c idle and low 60's loaded. Put this in and idles at 35 and never goes about 41. Love it. will soon be putting it on a 9950 AMD and will see what it does there.
Cons: kind of large. put on and microATX asus board and had no problems with it hitting anything.
