  • Summary: I needed a new heat sink and fan because the mounts to my former one broke when I took it out of the old MB, so I needed a new one for my new MB.
  • Pros: Keeps chip cool, fits many formats, not too big or small.
  • Cons: Mounting to board was challenge for me.

  • Summary: Very good heatsink for the price and cools way better and quieter than stock, as long as you don't have the fan going as fast as it can. I had a p7n 775 MOBO that has high chipset coolers and this fit, then I switched it to a HTPC AMD pc and it was low enough to fit easily. Very good design and adequate cooling.
  • Pros: For the price you can price match it at it's an amazing cooler., just the right size to fit in smaller cases but still keep cool.
  • Cons: could have a better fan but not a big deal for the price.

  • Summary: I purchased one of these to replace the stock cooler on my i860 cpu, which obviously has been designed to be just adequate and nothing more. I wanted something with a little more than adequacy. Although there is sufficient room in my case, I do not like the big tower coolers that are so popular nowadays. I'll admit they may provide better cooling, but hanging all that weight cantilevered off my mainboard socket does not appeal to me.
  • Pros: Relatively inexpensive, Relatively good build quality, Relatively light, low profile down-draft cooler, Improvement over stock Intel cooler
  • Cons: Not the best cooling performance compared to many other coolers out there, Will be quite noisy if temperatures cause the fan to ramp up to full speed

  • Summary: I run this unit fanless on a 65W energy efficient AMD quad core. Since the PSU fan is within CM of the heatsink, the PSU fan pulls enough air to keep the thing cool without a dedicated CPU Heatsink Fan. It's definitely quieter than stock because it is running fanless and making use of the PSU fan to power it's cooling. Manages 50 deg at full folding load using the airflow from the PSU.
  • Pros: nice cheap aftermarket heatsink
  • Cons: fan didn't fit into my HTPC

  • Summary: I bought this HSF to replace the stock i5 760 Intel cooler. The stock cooler is fine as a paperweight, but not good at anything else. The cooler dropped my CPU temps by about 25 degrees over stock and because it is capable of three different orientations, I have it doing a fine job of cooling my MOSFETs too. The PWM fan is nicely controlled by my Intel MB and I can't hear it from outside the case. All in all, this HSF is a good value for the money.
  • Pros: Size, weight and PWM fan.
  • Cons: Could use a 5th heat pipe between the other four.

  • Summary: I'm using this with an Intel DQ45EK and Antec Skeleton Mini. While I can't use the CPU coolers fan, the fan in the Antec Skeleton provides enough airflow to cover the cooler and other heat sinks.
  • Pros: L shape covers north and south bridge heat sinks
  • Cons: Can't use the fan when place in the Antec Skeleton mini.
