  • 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.
  • Cons: A bit expensive

OK

  • Pros: Sharp looking, has heat pipe technology, light, copper base, fits most motherboards without restricting memory placement.
  • Cons: Not a top notch cooler, and you really need to purchase a good 120mm fan for the top

  • Summary: Check out the SPCR (silentpcreview) review of this heatsink
  • Pros: Best top downer style heatsink I know of.
  • Cons: Forget about any rebates. For the same money or close to it, you are better off with certain tower-style designs. I would only go for this if you absolutely need a top-downer.

Asus Triton 75

Greg F., Newegg

  • 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.

not sure

E S., Newegg

  • 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: Make sure your case/motherboard has enough room. I had to move both my memory modules over 1 spot to make it fit.
  • Pros: Extremely cheap with adequate cooling. This is really comparable to heat sinks that cost $50-60. It looks cool.
  • Cons: It's huge. Instructions could have been clearer about which orientations of the heat sink provide the best cooling.

Great product.

  • Summary: This product WAS designed for a fan. You're an idiot if you don't use one.
  • Pros: This product is great. It's large, but its design prevents any problems. I got over a 25C drop using a 800rpm 120mm fan over stock!
  • Cons: They probably need to invest in a better mill, lol. Spend some extra time and a little money and lap this thing before using it.

Huge!

Anonymous, Newegg

  • 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.
  • Cons: Hard install on a mounted motherboard.
