4 out of 5 eggsIt is what it is.

Pros: CHEAP!
It's quiet - my 120mm case fans are 3x louder, even under full load (see other thoughts notes)
Tight and sure fit with processor surface.

Cons: Stock Thermal Paste is not that great.
A bit stiff trying to attach to an ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0. I thought I broke the motherboard the first time I attached it.

Other Thoughts: I knew what I was getting into when I got this. It is very inexpensive, and I just needed something better than the stock fan that came with my CPU. (Mind you it is an FX-6300 so was expecting to be running at the stated limit of this thing!) 95W is it's limit, I would not attempt to put this on an 8-core myself. I needed something to get me by until the liquid cooling system and case I wanted could go on sale. That said, be careful running this thing with the 95W CPU's I can bring this right up to 65C in about 30 minutes, but that is in part due to very bad air flow in my temporary case. Also, I had 65C temp issues right after installation, even with full fan speed. I cleaned the paste off from both the CPU and the heat sink, and applied Arctic Silver 5, which I have used for years, and that brought the nominal temp back down to 45C. However, heavy duty games (Skyrim, EVE, Borderlands2) tend to push this right back up there though.

I am also using one on an Althon 64 x2 4800 and that machine loves it. No problems with that build at all, again, I have replaced the stock thermal paste with Arctic Silver 5.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Works well on FM1 APU - see con. Quiet / cool.

Cons: Thermal compound that was on it began to harden after a few hours of use and kept the heat sink from seating properly. I wondered if it was because of the cold weather outside during shipping.

Other Thoughts: Removed thermal compound and applied some Arctic Silver 5 I had, works perfect. Asrock A55M-HVS motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't panic if your PC doesn't boot after installing it!

Pros: Low price
Nicely packaged
Thermal paste already applied
Quiet
Keeps CPU cool
Supports several sockets, could be reused with upgrades

Cons: Quite big, make sure you have room.

Other Thoughts: Many years ago my CPU cooler started vibrating a lot so I improvised and replaced it with a case fan I had laying around. The CPU temperature was a little high but nothing to worry about. The system was virtually silent, you wouldn't know it was on.

Recently I wanted to use a 2nd hard disk I already had and I had to buy a more powerful PSU. Once I had everything up & running I noticed the CPU temperature was quite high even at low loads. I only had a case fan cooling down the CPU plus a fanless Radeon plus two hard disks. The only other fan in the system was the PSU... so I thought it was time to replace the heatsink and put a real CPU fan.

I wanted something inexpensive and silent for my "obsolete" AMD 64 and this fit the bill.

I took away the old sink, cleaned the old paste with alcohol, installed the new sink (I was worried to the amount of pressure I had to put on to engage the clip) and turned the computer on. The fan spinned but the PC wouldn't boot. Nothing. Not even a beep.

After a moment of panic ("I shouldn't buy parts, I would be better off just buying a regular computer and stop wasting time, etc.") I started researching online. It seems that's a fairly common problem.

I knew it couldn't have been the PSU because it was brand new. The underlying issue is that something may have been unseated and it causes the motherboard to not boot. The advice they give you is to unplug everything except the CPU fan and monitor and clear the CMOS to try and isolate the problem.

My concern was that I may have broken the CPU when I had to press quite hard to engage the new sink bracket. I went as far as removing the new heatsink again, take the CPU off its slot, checking the pins underneath and put everything back. Stll no luck.

I think in my particular case the problem may have been the memory modules. Even though I took them out and put them back in, the system only worked after I pressed in the already seated memory modules.

Then I installed the original case fan, this time for its intended purpose and tested again. Still good.

Afterwards I installed one card at a time (graphics card, firewire, TV tuner) testing to ensure everything was still working.

I'm writing this with the PC reassembled. I hear now the fans, but now I have two instead of one. Is not bothersome or too loud. The processor is noticeable cooler than before.

All in all, a great CPU cooler. It comes with thermal paste already pre-applied, it's pretty quiet, cools the CPU and it's very inexpensive.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and quiet!

Pros: Bought to throw on a refurb Sempron 130 for my moms PC, obviously not putting much of a load on it, but I set it to run max because my moms case isn't the best for air flow, still keeping cool and you can't hear it over the sound of the 80mm PSU fan!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great little heatsink, keep an eye on the TDP of your CPU though, not made for higher end stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet deal

Pros: Cheap and super easy install.

Cons: Scares me a little bit how open the fan blades are so make sure you have this area clear and take a little caution installing it

Other Thoughts: Impressive for the price and would buy again if needed. Decent speed and about as loud as a stock fan.

5 out of 5 eggsVery quiet

Pros: Very quiet. I'm running this on a lower end PC for my wife so I wasn't looking for a high end cooler. Just wanted something quiet to get the job done and this does it very well.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGood Cooler

1 out of 5 eggsCrushed in shipment

Pros: Was shipped quickly

Cons: Unfortunately was shipped USPS. Package looked ok but box that contained the fan was crushed on a cornet. 1 fan blade was broken. Cost me more to return than to just reorder from someone else that I get free shipping from.

1 out of 5 eggsStock cooler was better

Pros: Ran quieter than the tiny, loud, irritating stock AMD fan.

Cons: What's the point of a quieter fan if it can't keep anything cool?
Idle temps on my FX - 4200 were good in the low 30 degree Celsius range but under load it ran to nearly 80 degrees before I shut it down!
Wow, that's bad...

Other Thoughts: Max TDP seems to be 70 watts for this cooler, my CPU is 125 watts. Newegg does not inform you about this in the specs...

5 out of 5 eggsFollow up Review

Pros: Great cooling performance for my application... In my application.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Just a follow up to my last review. I forgot to mention what proc I run and what circumstances my setup is subject to.
I am running this cooler in my server with a 95 watt quad core Athlon II CPU. Being a server, CPU (and RAM more so) resources are mostly taxed by virtual server machines. I only have 3 VMs running and they operate under light resource loads.
The guys complaining about overheating 8 core FX series procs are expecting too much from a compact cooler.
