Summary: I purchased this because I did not want to have a tall heatsink since I have a microatx case. Also, I sent my rebate form out on July 30th and still have not received the rebate. The link that I was provided in my email says up until october 24th...that status was in effect around september 20th.
Pros: Support 120mm fan. Keeps my Athlon X2 5200+ @ 3.2Ghz at 43C load. I am using a Scythe Minebea 120mm fan on the heatsink. It is rated at 41cfm.
Summary: I would buy another at that price in a heartbeat, but we will see if Asus comes through on the rebate.
Pros: Very easy install on Biostar TF8200. Hardware Monitor reports 21C at idle and lowers fan speed on heatsink to often less than 300rpm. Even with HDTV only goes up to 500rpm and 25C. Hey, I am just reporting what I am seeing. Lapped, AC MX2, Scythe Slip800, Slip1200 at back of Solo case FanMated to...
Cons: The surface could have been smoother. For $18 I am not really complaining.
Summary: I bought this hoping I could keep the noise levels down with a BIG fanless heatsink. Without a fan, I put this on the 5600+ black edition CPU. At stock voltage/speeds, the heatsink was not enough to keep it cool. It kept it warm, not "too hot," but NiC is right- use a fan.
Pros: I know it works. I can feel the heat on the thing. It's huge. Fanless? Mail-in-Rebate?
Cons: It's Huge. No layout issues, though. But put the RAM in before you mount this heatsink. It doesn't mount very tightly. Once you tighten the mounting clip all the way, there is still a bit of play between the cpu and the heatsink. Apparently, I'm an idiot (NiC's review).
Summary: This thing is huge. It fit fine into my Antec Sonata III though. Says its a fanless design but not wanting to risk it I went with a 120mm Antec SmartCool fan. The fan runs at about 1328 RPM and keeps the CPU at 40C idling. Nice and quiet set up.
Pros: Keeps CPU cool enough, connects to AMD or Intel OEM heat sink clips.
Summary: This Heatsink Is fairly Nice, Does the job it was built to do, Not for a highly over clocked cpu. #prime.cs
Pros: My AMD x2 5000+ Black Edition Over clocked to 2.8 Runs at 8c never have i seen it go over 10c Very Nice, Its Big and Draws attention Hase Room for a 120mm Fan For the Casual Gamer Its Big !!! ^_^
Cons: It does NOT come with a 120mm Fan Sometimes It Might be To big -_-
