Excerpt: Very good choice to replace deficient cooling. Excellent cooling capacities but check first free place in your computer because this cooling fan is big! All fittings are provided for several config for an excellent price. Order processing and delivery are fast and reliable as usual with BH!
Summary: Got it cheap and fast (I shelled out for quicker shipping). It's keeping my 3.3ghz 6-core at 11C idle and with P95 burning nothing above 45C. Have yet to get around to overclocking yet. Was only a little difficult to install on my M5A97 mobo (while still in the case) since I couldn't see the baseplate and cpu to line up, but I got it in the right place with the added bracket instead of the plastic pieces. No noisier than my stock fan was and does a better job.
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.
