Summary: The heatsink & fan is doing it's job. On a AMD Quad 4 3.0 Mhz not over clocked the CPU is running at 100 degrees for the last 24 hours. The only complaint I had was that you had to take out the motherboard to install the unit.
Summary: The fan is very quiet at lower power settings. My hard drives spinning make more noise. You can hear it when it is running at the faster RPM's. I do like that it is PWM controlled fan- it adjusts the fan speed on its own, I guess actually the MB controlls it. Just remember to install this before you put the MB in the case. Part of this unit installs on the back of the MB.
Summary: I was using the stock cooler with a i7-3770K. When I ran the experience assessment (8.1 system, 8.0 CPU), the 70C alert fired off without any overclocking. I replaced the stock cooler with the Hyper 212 EVO. Now it will reach 46C, and that's with overclocking to 4.2 GHz (8.1 system, 8.2 CPU). At idle, the CPU and MB are about the same at 30C. The MB is often hotter than the CPU by a degree or two.
Summary: Awesome CPU Cooler! First time every trying it and its great. Over clocked my A8 to 4.1 with no voltage change. Keeps my temps on idle mid 30s and under load low 50's. Couldn't ask for much better.
Summary: I put this on an i5 and it keeps everything nice and cool at less than 80F with the fan at under 600 rpm and nearly silent. The cooler is very large - had to move the fan to pull from the other side as the RAM cooling fins wouldn't allow it on that side.
