Rated 4 out of 5 by Nadar Couldn't test it
I bought this for use on a Dell server board that originally has passive CPU cooling, thinking that switching to active could allow me to slow down the very noisy chassis fans. I underestimated Dell's ability to disregard standards though, there's no way to fit this on the CPU. The holes in the motherboard doesn't line up, and it crashes with several other things. I don't blame the cooler though, I'm sure it will fit just fine on a standard LGA 771 motherboard. I like the fact that it's self regulating for motherboards like mine with no CPU fan socket, but it's hard to know how well it reacts to temperature changes without being able to test it.

It comes with a backplate but not a Nocona CPU mounting plate to screw it into. Simple fix of getting some 6-32 nuts. Or you can hunt for a Nocona plate in america for 12-20USD
Decent quality for the price, especially seeing as the socket is so old

Rated 5 out of 5 by NeilP Good quality HSF at a sensible price
No problems with installation using it on the second CPU in a Dell T5400 workstation. Clears motherboard capacitors fine.
