Summary: I am an engineer, so I have high standards even for low priced products like this. The heatsink design itself is excellent, the fan is decent quality, and the mounting mechanism is very good for the price. It is not designed to be removed and replaced so it does not have to be sophisticated. I cannot speak to the actual cooling capacity because I did not test it in a lab environment, but this is the fan system I would recommend.
Summary: This item did not do what I thought it would. I would not say that for a normal PSU that this would not preform wonderfully, but I would say that for something 4.5 ghz or more, this will not do that trick.
Summary: CPU was overheating, causing motherboard alarm to sound. Replaced it with this one here and oh, it's nice and quiet. Easy installation, works well. Will be buying a second one for my boyfriend's computer - his cpu fan is so old and dusty it's begging to be put out of its misery.
Summary: Needed to replace the noisy stock 70mm AMD cooler on my ASUS M4A88T-M Motherboard. Decided on this model based on its simple design, price and specs. Easy to install and computer is now very quiet and cool. I would purchase again.
