Pros: Installation was easy, even comes with thermal paste. I'm using this on AMD 8350 with 2U Case which keeps relatively cool around 50 Celsius. Since I don't have much room for air in take i'm using additional fans to supply air to the cooler.
Cons: The fan good be a bit better as it's plastic, will see how well it functions overtime. Might replace it later with another slim fan.
Summary: This thing is great. "Silencio" fan indeed; I have built a few HTPCs over the years, but this most recent one is super silent thanks in part to this cooler. I couldn't even hear it when I first booted the system up (case off) and like a dolt I assumed something was wrong and shoved my finger in...
Cons: The heat sink fan has very poor mounting latches. Continuously slides down heat sink over time, contacting my GPU. Could not find a way to keep it secure. Ended up tossing it and reusing stock heatsink.

Summary: Very very quiet and cools my A6-7400K HTPC very nicely. Temps might spike to 65 C for heavy use, but the average running temps are right around 42 C. Memory is clocked at 1866MHz and fits under the cooling fins of the heat sink. Not using extended heat sinks on my RAM.
Summary: I am using this on an AMD A10-7700. At 15% load, the CPU temp was 110*C. I thought I did something wrong. I took off the cooler, reapplied all the thermal paste, double and triple checked my steps and installed it again. What do you know, over 100C again.
Pros: low profile
Cons: terrible heat transfer, loose fan, rattles when running
