4 out of 5 eggsFunctional

Pros: Tough plastic with a solid steel backing plate.
Easy installation.

Cons: Installed on an old Biostar AM3 board. Seems this bracket makes for a much tighter retention pressure than stock ones that come from MB manufacturers. Made my normally easy to install heatsink a bit of a pain. The plastic nubs where the retention clips fasten could stand to be more rounded to ease installation of heatsinks.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD Socket Retention Holder

Pros: What's not to like? If you need this, because you removed your old retention bracket for whatever reason and you need to put one back on, this is an easy buy. There's really nothing to it, but what there is, is well made.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as Intended

Pros: An excellent replacement to the OEM bracket in a 2 part design.

Cons: It's only available in black plastic.
(a polished forged chrome retention bracket kit might conduct electricity, but would look shiny!)

Other Thoughts: I didn't even use the supplied back plate, which was metal. I simply used the stock plate provided on my GigaByte which looked nearly the same.

5 out of 5 eggsPowered

Pros: Great product. Purchased for a client that had a broken retention holder. Easy to install. Very durable and is sold at a great price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Instead of purchasing a new motherboard these are great if your retention holder is damaged. Save yourself some money and replace any damaged retention holder before you lose your processor.

1 out of 5 eggsSubstandard materials

Pros: Good design. Easy installation.

Cons: While this product will fit several sockets due to the absence of sides along its length, it lasted only 4 months before a chunk of plastic on one of the width sides simply broke off, causing the fan/heatsink assembly to become completely detached from the CPU, resulting in an immediate overheating of the CPU and system shutdown.

Other Thoughts: Great design but inferior plastic that doesn't withstand heat. The case into which it was installed had plenty of room and air flow and was used for very low demand CPU tasks in an air-conditioned, non-smoking environment. Others have obviously had better experience, but beware its plastic is not suitable for its intended use.

5 out of 5 eggsDid the Job perfect

Pros: Perfect replacement fit for my old AMD 965 and HP/foxconn mobo. Fairly priced and couldn't find any other product that would do the trick. This lil thing bailed me out of having to buy a new heatsink that would come with it's own retention holder.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Never throw out old parts unless your absolutely sure you won't ever need them.
