Summary: Purchased this unit to replace my generic cooler master heat sink I had purchased about a year ago after my stock sink became so caked with crap I couldn't clean it out. The instructions were amazing, with pretty little pictures on how to install this bad boy on an AM2 socket, except that it didn't install. It wouldn't fit. Zalman apparently used to provide a clip/bracket for the AM2 sockets that would have made this install a breeze.
Incorrect directions, missing Intel CPU screws, mounting screws too short

Summary: As a long-time Zalman customer who has bought a number of their items, including one very expensive aluminum case, I am quite disappointed. I am a very experienced IT technician, so I always read through manuals and directions before doing anything with parts in PCs I am building. In the case of this heatsink, I carefully read that the orientation of the heatsink is supposed to be with the "..thin side of the heatsink facing towards the system exhaust fan." Wrong!
Summary: Amazon (through no fault of there own) mailed me a revision 1.2 cooler not the newer 2.2. The specific difference is the way AMD processors mount. I returned this and bought a Thermaltake Frio, could not be happier.
