OMG I LOVE THIS CPU COOLER!

Summary: This thing is a BEAST! Easy to install, the instructions are a little lacking but if you look at it logically you will be able to figure it out with the diagrams. Little hint, Make sure you remove the easily snapped on/off Fan that is as big as a house, after that install is a snap. Also if the memory ports are really close, install memory before you put the fan back on the heat sink.
Summary: After upgrading my CPU processor (AMD Athlon X2 6000+) a couple of days ago, I was getting warnings of the temp being too hot. I was using the original stock CPU cooling fan. At idle, the CPU was running at around 56-58C, and when there was even the slightest load, it would go up to around 60-64C. Of course, this is not good. Unit arrived in a standard blister pack, and looked HUGE.
Summary: I bought this to replace the stock cooler on my FX-8320, and it works like a charm. Even after a 500MHz overclock, full load temperatures stay well below 60°C. Maybe not *THE* quietest CPU fan on the market, but it's markedly quieter than the one AMD provided. For £17, it's a bargain.
Excerpt: If you own a micro ATX and don't have small hands this mght not be the heatsink for you. Or you just might have to put out the whole motherbroad in order to get the four clip snapped in. Once I was finished with this project it looked like I got into one huge fist fight.
Summary: Functions as intended, more or less. My cpu never hits above 60 degrees no matter what, but I had one glaring problem with this cooler. It is required to face upward, and takes up a lot of case space. Not a problem in itself, but it also blocked me from using half of my ram slots with my current ram (low profile still fits). Still, good for the price.
A must buy if you are running a stock AMD cooler on ANY processor!!!! Wonderful temps at a reasonable price!!!!!!!

Summary: I bought this item with the intent of putting it on my AMD 6300 CPU, as the stock cooler is absolutely dreadful. This fan is easy enough to install, comes with a good brand thermal paste, and keeps your temps down where you need them. Before this cooler, my 6300 would creep up to 67 degrees under load, a little higher than anyone wants their CPU. Now, overclocked at 4.1ghz, I cannot get this thing above 44 degrees celcius.
Summary: Overall this is a great fan that helps keep the processor much more cool than the fan that came with the CPU. There's also the option to add a second fan if needed, for more cooling. I almost purchased another model that was a 120mm fan, but glad I went with this one. It fits in the case nicely - anything larger would be too large. I took a star off the rating, because I was surprised to find out that the board mount for this cooler is the cheap plastic push pins!
