Pros: You can chalk my mistake up to the poor instructions provided by Koolance. It was unclear that the mounting studs for socket-F boards, are supposed to fit in the existing studs on the board (difficult to tell from the pictures). And it was also a matter of the screws being VERY tight. I felt very uncomfortable forcing screws into (and possible stripping) a $700 motherboard! But ultimately, out of desperation, I finally went ahead and did just that. The screws in my set, would not install with simple finger tip pressure. So I had to use my pliers. Once they were in though, I realized these are something you will not want to remove (and you really shouldn't need to). Let's face it. You don't install liquid cooling on a whim. It's meant to stay put, once installed.

Cons: The instructions are really lousy. And the advice from the Support person, wasn't any better. What I was told, only served to reinforce my thinking that the screws were meant to be used with the mounting plates. They are NOT, for AMD. So let me repeat. The studs (those long screws on which the thumbwheels are meant to fit) are meant to be screw(ed) into the two screw sockets at either end of the processor.

Other Thoughts: Koolance really needs to rethink their instructions.

Sorry for the incorrect statements made before. It could have been avoided. But then, I was really annoyed. Maybe I should have waited until I calmed down, and then wrote my review. By then, I would have had the screws and the cooling blocks installed.

Oh well!!

1 out of 5 eggsNot too Koolance!!

Pros: The cooling heads fit within the limited space of Tyan boards. Purchased this for my s4980 four-socket board.

Cons: So here's the technical explanation of the problem. Koolance sells these blocks with a backplate (which you already know). Tyan, has a permanently attached backplate to which the cpu mounting hardware is bolted to. So even if you could remove the backplate as this idiot suggested, you simultaneously remove the means to attach the cpu.

They have mounting bolts/studs which are supposed to be inserted from the back of the motherboard. They are meant to extend up through the board, to which the thumbwheels and springs are meant to fit over. Looks and sounds all well and good. Until you realize that the bolts ONLY work with the Koolance supplied backplate. Tyan motherboards only have two holes in them per processor mount, in which are pre-installed threaded mounting sockets. The diameter of these are TOO small to allow the Koolance studs to pass through. So, I am left with my $700 board and $50 cooling blocks which WON'T attach to it.

Other Thoughts: And ALL they needed to have done, was to have supplied 1.5" bolts which would fit the Tyan threaded mounts. The screws which are supplied by Tyan, are too short to attach the cooling block's retaining plate. And that's not even taking into consideration the springs which you should use to prevent damaging the board by over tightening the screws retaining the plate.

Simple solution, completely overlooked, because Koolance NEVER tested a Tyan board. And that really shows the level of their stupidity, since Tyan is likely the largest supplier of AMD socket-f boards. And the way to know for a fact that Koolance never test them, is the fact that no where do they say anything about the special procedures involved, like removing the factory backplate, and reattaching the processor mounting bracket to their backplate. They can't mention it, because there are NO holes in their backplate which would allow the reattachment of the Tyan processor mounting brackets.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Keeps the cpu very cool.

Cons: The specs info doesn't clearly state that this product needs 1/4" fittings so you have no clue what to buy. I figured the fittings off my old cooler would work, but didn't. Good news is Home Depot has fittings that will work.

Other Thoughts: Either I had an open box unit or something went wrong in manufacture. Nothing big but the copper tape to tape the temp sensor on the cpu was not sticky and the yellow wax paper was in the box but not on the tape. So my temp sensor is just touching the cooler for now and not secure.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazingly Easy Install!

Pros: Extremely easy install on a Socket M CPU with Socket 478 (Prescott) mounting holes.

Cons: No way to determine actual lb/in^2 pressure applied to a Merom CPU die, you have to remove the motherboard (moot point in watercooling).

Other Thoughts: Worthwhile product! Watercooling brought my CPU down from 65 C under load to 35 C under load and 16 C idle. Stock 2.0 ghz T7200, OC'ed to 3.1 ghz watercooled.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Mounts included for current AMD and Intel. design is such that if heatsink retention brackets or cpu sizes change in future, you could easily change retention frame. Inside of sink has gold plated "pyramids" to increase surface area.

Cons: nothing really, maybe the nozzle seal design only

Other Thoughts: The nozzles designed to screw into the heatsink have an o-ring seal which I don't trust entirely - You might want to add some teflon tape to the threads

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome in a box

Pros: Very easy to install and conducts heat very very well.

Cons: Instructions could be a little better than a one page folded thing. Atleast it has color diagrams and isn't like a photo copy.

Other Thoughts: The nozzles don't come with this heatsink but that is good when you know exactly what you want and what size nozzles you'll need to use.
