Summary: SilverStone NT06-E CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel LGA775,LGA1156,LGA1366, AMD 754,939,940,AM2,AM3, Simply, the best choice, I would highly recommend, this cooler, But I do not know, how the performance is going to be when the CPU is over clocked.
Summary: I'm using this in an SG07 case, with an i3-2100 and ASRock H67M-ITX motherboard. The cooler is huge and blocks the PCI slot on the motherboard, but I'm not using it. The only fan is the case fan. The CPU is only 65W, and I don't use it heavily. CPU temperatures are under 40 C when idle, and under load go to 56 C with the case fans set to low. This is a great cooler for an HTPC, but I would get something smaller and noisier if you need a video card and a mini-itx board.
Summary: Used this to cool my quad core CPU but have since upgraded to a 1090T 3.2 GHz processor. This think gets pretty hot but does not reach the processors high load temp of 62C I wouldn't recommend it for demanding tasks or gaming w/o a fan but if its low profile and quiet that your looking for, then this is for you.
Not Fanless. Required piggy back on the PSU fan or it's own

Summary: Based on the description and a quick glance this looks like the perfect solution to many cooling problems; however, read the fine print. This will only cool at the 130w max rating when placed directly under a PSU with a 135mm fan. Otherwise your MUST attach a fun to it to get the full rating. I couldn't use the cooler as it wouldn't fit in my case (Silverstone GD05B) when I put in the CD/DVD drive.
Summary: Be Careful! THIS HAS NO FAN AND IT NEEDS ONE! If you are like me and fussed around looking at many of these, while trying to understand the various advantages, all the items get mushed together. I don'r understand their claim that the design is more "flexible" because it does not include a fan. It seems to me to be more flexible if it contained a removable fan. Given that, after I ran to Best Buy to add a $15 fan, it semd to do a good job.
Summary: Works great. Relatively easy install. It is backplated designed so you have to remove your motherboard. I picked this heatsink because of it's low profile and was high enough to clear all my MB heatsinks. No cheap plastic or nylon install parts and not push pin designed like intel stock fans. Comes with a small amount of thermal grease (which I used).
