Summary: The fan and heat sink work great. They'll probably out live the rest of my computer. But the tiny plastic pins for holding eveything in place are a joke. There is no way those pins are capable of holding 2 lbs of copper suspended over my graphics card for more than a minute. I had to improvise my own attachment with screws and washers. Shouldn't have to do that for $25+.
Summary: I bought this to upgrade my old cooler which was leaving my cpu running very hot during cpu intense games. This dropped my cpu temp by 23 degrees over my old cooler. I would recommend adding a second fan if you have the space, as it dropped the cpu temp another 7 degrees. I am very happy with it in that respect. It does however take up a big chunk of real estate inside my case.
Summary: I used this to cool a Phenom 1100T clocked to 3.5GHz. It performed decently, there are better coolers. I do not like how you have to set up the mounts, but it works. It was worth the $20 I paid, but no more.
Summary: I bought this to replace my old, came with the CPU, cooler and couldn't be happier. It essentially uses a case fan on the heat sink so it is far quieter. My CPU also runs cooler now. I recommend it. Running on an AMD phenom II 3.1Ghz in an HTPC.
Summary: No Joke. I had an Intel i5 2.8 quad with the stock fan and heat sink and it was running at 74 degree celsius. I added a second fan to the unit and now I am running at 32 degree celsius after running any game I have.
