Rated 5 out of 5 by Ziggomatic A good little cooler
This is a great little cpu cooler for the price. While I doubt it would be a good choice for overclocking, it is both much cooler and much quieter that the awful stock fans that come with most CPUs.
Installation takes a little bit of time, but as long as you read the instructions carefully you shouldn't have any problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carlost Successfully cooled my old AMD 955
My old 955 based PC was getting far to warm, made noticeable via the stock cooling that came with the chip revving up near constantly when it was in use by the kids for mundane tasks such as homework or War Thunder (5770 was used as well).
After reseating and reapplying the thermal paste it was still in the 55-60c range when crunching numbers so I gave in and bought a larger case (Enermax ECA3250-BW Ostrog) some new t.paste and this heatsink & fan.
Worked a treat. Although smaller than my 212 it has brought the CPU temp down to 25-30c at any given time ergo the PC is now rather silent. I'd recommend this if you want a good heatsink & fan for less than £20.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maxingitout Excellent cooler that works perfectly
This cooler is a fantastic value for money, I originally bought this to have a spare for when i get a new one, but now I have used this as my main cooler it is that good, the hottest my CPU has got is about 39.c I think, I am remarkably impressed with this product and I would definitely recommend this!
