28°C idle and 32°C under heavy stress. Simply Great!

Summary: Simply a great cooler The temp readings I have for the CPU tends to stay around 28°C idle, and when I play Minecraft with over 120 mods with a server on the same system it gets no higher than 32°C. Best cooler I ever had. The last one I had the fan die and required a special fan that I could not find. I got this because both fans are easily replaceable. Definitely recommend this to anyone!
Summary: Like it other than the fact that you have to remove the motherboard to put it on or take if off. It's awkward to hold the heat sink in place while screwing it to the support plate under the motherboard. Other than that, it is excellent. It's shorter than my previous cooler which wouldn't allow me to put the side on my case, but still has about the same heat sink mass.
Summary: PRICE I bought this cooler for $28.99 and as I'm writing this review, the price has gone up to 38.99. The prices on Amazon fluctuate all the time so you can always put it in your wish list and keep an eye on the price until it is at a level that your willing to pay for. PERFORMANCE I bought this heat sink to replace the stock intel one that came with my CPU and boy am I glad I did.
Summary: I replaced my stock intel fan with this one. It's quiet, someone compact (compared to some others out there) and keeps my cpu nice and cool. About the only CON I can think of, is that the instructions are kinda hard to sort through, but not to bad. I'd buy another one.
Summary: My second build and second Cooler Master cooler. The first build and cooler was with the Hyper 212 Evo. Great cooler. The 212 comes with only the one fan. I wanted to try the push/pull double fan set up for this build, enter the N520. COOLER MASTER N520 along with; Asus Z-87 Expert mobo (All the features and capability without the high price of ROG label) I7 4770K (speaks for itself) Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB 4x8 1866mhz CL9 (Just because) (well and it's CL9 hard...
The Hyper N520 is very worthy of your consideration

Summary: I've pretty much been stuck with stock cooling fans since I began building. 9 times out of 10, they go what they need to...but just barely. The stock fan that came with my AMD 8350 idled at around 40C, sometimes higher, and that's during the winter. Playing games or other high performance tasks would easily bump the temps up to the 70's, almost 80's if the room temp was hot. At times it worried me.
Summary: I am using this on an fx-8120 amd cpu, i paid around $40 for the cooler and some arctic silver thermal paste which is a great deal. used this to replace my rosewill cooler and im seeing much lower temperatures (stays in the low 30s while at idle and never goes above 60 even when im playing crysis 3 at maxed settings).
