Pros: Installed in minutes thanks to having an FM2 socket (AM2 up to FM2 compatibility). Has a 4 pin PWM fan, which I used as the rear fan on my case, and got an Arctic Cooler PMW fan to put on the cooler (I wanted a white fan on the cooler to glow under the blue lights of my PSU and intake fans) Either way the fans are very quiet unless you have them at MAX RPM and I dropped 25°F at load. I run Minecraft which is more graphic and CPU intensive than most ppl believe. The st...
Cons: I have found zero reasons to complain, not even the price!
Summary: Probably would not buy another of these push pins as it is sometimes incredibly hard to insert on top of your cpu. As I was pushing the pins in I almost broke one, which was why i even needed to buy another one. I hope intel makes a better design that doesn't make me nervous to clean my heatsink.
Summary: The Good: Excellent cpu cooler that keeps cpu 20 degrees cooler than motherboard system. Usually motherboard temperature is 20+ degrees cooler than my cpu's temperature in any computer I every built. This thing is huge and I am using the 2nd fan on a quad X9300 intel cpu. Over 60+ CFM air flow for cpu cooler but you must make sure you have enough space for this monster.
Pros: A solid heatsink in my book. Running it on my Asus P8Z77-v Pro board with Intel's I7-3770K cpu and it does a great job. CPU runs at 30 to 32C idle - and never over 46C under heavy and continuous gaming load (yet). It has a really quite fan too - can't even hear it at cpu idle or low load.
Cons: No cons really - but be careful with the push pins that mount it to the board. A little tricky if you don't have them lined up with the motherboard holes just right - and make sure the pins are not in the locked position during install else you might bend or even break the plastic pins.
Summary: This is a fairly lightweight heatsink/fan combo that is a small but noticeable upgrade over a stock CPU cooler. It's not as effective as larger/more expensive coolers, but it should be quite quiet. I've read though can't confirm that the heat pipes are not perfectly flush with the plate, so I used more thermal compound than I would have otherwise. The package comes with plenty.
Pros: Light enough to clip on without having to access back of motherboard, pretty quiet variable-speed fan, comprehensive mounting equipment
Summary: It works great at cooling down both computers with the giant heatsink it has and continues to keep it cool even at full load!
Pros: Compatible with almost all sockets, I have 2 installed - One in a FM1 AMD socket and a LGA 775 Socket (Ive had one already for several months prior to my second purchase, Comes with fan mounting brackets, screws, thermal paste, everything you need to hook it up
Cons: Slightly on the large size, you need to measure it if it would fit properly in your case, Slight difficult to understand installation instructions, If this isnt your first time using a aftermarket hsf then its no problem.
