Summary: Works great! I used this to replace the stock cooler on an older Phenom II CPU that I put in an old HTPC. Before putting this in, the CPU was running around 60c at idle with the fan at full speed with the cover on the case sounding like a jet engine.
Summary: this cooler is not for mid range up cooling for me the fan hitting the heat sink not silent not even withstandable and to top it off the direct heatpipes warped and flexed til the thermal compound would run into the cracks being a total failure as im not going to keep dumping thermal compound and...
Summary: First the bad. I installed this fan on a ITX system. The part was recommended by www.pcpartpicker.com. A web site that was recommended to me by a friend. For the most part it did its part but really didn't take into account the sheer size of the CPU fan.
Summary: This is the best CPU cooler I have had ever. This thing cools better than my water cooler used to. It is a very quiet runner too. It is cooling a APU AMD A8-3850 *O.C to 3.4GHz* and still hovering around 30C. I did use arctic silver 5 instead of the thermal paste provided.
Summary: Any rating I put here would not be fair because this cooler was just not designed for my system. I had hoped that this cooler would work in my 3U server chassis, but the Intel i7-2600k processor is just too much. The CPU was running in the 70s under heavy video editing loads.
Summary: It was bigger than I expected but it still fit inside of a Dell 620s slim PC. I have to take a star for the almost comically small instructions but if you have experience with CPU coolers it's pretty standard stuff.
Summary: Bought this for an HTPC retrofit because I needed something functional, quiet, slim, and inexpensive. This fits all of those qualifications perfectly. My temps are 3-4C lower than the stock HS/F, and it's inaudible. Installation, however, was a challenge.

Summary: Installed as per directions. Cpu went to over 70%C in less than 3 minutes. Pulled it off and could see that only about 25 percent of the heatsink was touching the cpu. The method of attaching to Amd motherboards is crap, with large nuts to attach bolts from the mounting bars on top to the backing...

Summary: This fan is perfect for my HTPC which is a small form factor case. Most fans are tall and will not fit. This fan is super quite even when running at it's highest speed. My motherboard does have smart fan speeds so only when the CPU is under load will it spin at full speed.
Summary: For the money this is an excellent CPU cooler. The way it connects to the mobo isn't as good as some other Coolermaster fans and the clips that hold the fan to the fins are a little tricky to take on and off. It is very lite and doesn't take up too much space.
