Summary: If you have a small case, this can work, just might need to modify side panel a bit.
Pros: This is a awesome CPU cooler. Purchased this to keep my AMD A10 5800K CPU cool, they run quite warm and I run Folding @ Home. With FAH running all CPU cores @ 100% and the GPU as well, on the stock cooler I was seeing temperatures of around 68c, not to mention was extremely noisy. Now after insta...

Pros: Installation is practically idiot proof (assuming that you can read instructions), small footprint, quiet.
Summary: took a chance on a no review product but Zalman does make great CPU coolers and i am not disappointed Installation was not to bad since i did it outside the case
Pros: Perfect Fit on Asrock Extreme 3 Gen 3 does not interfere with northbridge and doesn't cover ram slot Low Temps Giving me 32ºC on idle the fan is no slouch u can really feel the air coming off this if you put your had behind it solidly built quiet unique design
Cons: Minor Gripes flimsy top panel where the logo is pushes in when a slight bit of pressure is applied installation but that is with all aftermarket coolers
