5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a champ.

Pros: Brand, performance, size, looks nice. This lil chipset cooler works great, not much else too say, i like that its not huge its for a chipset so you dont really want a big cooler gettin in the way. Price is very reasonable too, and they give you all the barbs you could need along with ARCTIC SILVER cermaique, its rare that a company includes a well known high end thermal paste, usually you get the lil packet of white stuff that you just throw in a bin and hang on to for whatever reason.

Cons: Not a one.

Other Thoughts: it has a plethora of mounting options another bonus, i honestly can not see this thing not being compatible with any motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice for the price

Pros: Enough hardware and flexibility to fit just about any application. If you like to tinker, this is for you. Did you see the price?

Cons: If you lack attention to detail or problem solving skills, you may have problems. Plastic barbs are relatively long, and because of the lip and design it won't likely take other brand fittings. Definitely won't take Koolance.

Other Thoughts: Bolted up to my new DFI DK X48 T2RSB Plus NB, fitting almost like a factory piece. Had to reverse the metal "wings" and use a modified setup with the long screws coming from under the board. Worked out very very nicely. Chipset temps stay in the 30s.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes what it's supposed to

Pros: It does what it's supposed to. Good for the price.

Cons: Didn't fit my amd media live diva board, the holes in the board were too close together. Had to remove two screws from brackets so I could swivel them so they would fit. Ended up putting the mounting screws in the holes that hold the bracket in place. Maybe I could have researched better. Also, one of the screws for the hard mount kit wasn't threaded. That's annoying when that happens.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Does what it is intended to dropped temps on my 680i sli mobo to 18c idle and 22c full load with q6600 at 3.8ghz norm temps around 33c so a pretty good drop for $23

Cons: none at this time.

Other Thoughts: also bought one for my south bridge because it works really good and looks awesome in the case
also im using a bigwater 760is water cooler with cpu,gpu,nb,sb water blocks but i bought a swiftech 240mm radiator to work along with the 120 that comes with the kit.

5 out of 5 eggswhat an awesome block!

Pros: this thing is amazing. it takes a little bit of wiggling to get it just right with 100% contact on an MSI-7280 (k9a plat) and just in the way of a power connector for my cm ram fans...but this thing keeps my chip cool. wish i had crossfire active...

Cons: some mobos might have power connectors right near the chip, so be careful, take time, and dont be afraid to mod!!!

Other Thoughts: people are so afraid to mod and make it work...no matter what it is. this is a great waterblock, and cheaper than those other guys! i had free shipping when i bought this a few months back, took me a while to hook it all up and cut my case to mount my ibgwater 745 inside my centurion5 but its all in and good to go. keeps my chip cool. need to get that p500 in there now too.
