5 out of 5 eggsAd it should be.

Pros: Everyone saying it's loud- it is designed for servers....not your desktop gaming rig. There are better solutions for liquid. Works as it should. If it doesn't work as well, it probably is full of dust and should be cleaned...among other things that are not to be blamed on the cooler.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsLOUD

Pros: Fan spins and it will cool the CPU

Cons: Extremely loud. Loud enough it can be heard in the next room and you have to raise your voice to have a conversation in the same room. We did expect some noise, but nothing near the level these were at. Asked for a refund to use toward purchase of different heatsink/fans and Newegg refused. Went ahead and ordered the other brand and they work fantastic with minimal noise.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend to someone. There are better performing ones that cost less.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat For Server Applications

Pros: These heatsinks fit perfectly into 2U Supermicro chassis without ducted airflow. I have two installed in separate single processor chassis. During 24-hour CPU and RAM burn-in on QC 2.13GHz 80W processors these did not even break a sweat, even when "Balanced" setting was selected in BIOS. Stable temperatures of 45C were seen under full load and 4000RPM fan speed (burn-in was conducted in climate controlled server room). These are solid heatsinks that I would definitely purchase again to improve cooling on other 1366 systems.

Cons: Care must be taken to protect the fragile heatsink fins during installation. As others mentioned, the units are not fully deburred and can have sharp edges.

Other Thoughts: During normal operation the heasink fan cannot be heard over system fans, which tend to be quite noisy in Supermicro chassis. Intel probably did not design this HSF with home office/bedroom deployment in mind...

5 out of 5 eggsQuieter than I expected

Pros: I needed this style cooler for a Z8NR-D12 dual-socket build, with x5650s. Even running prime95 large FFT the fan never got to 4000 RPM, and wasn't much louder than a relatively quiet GPU (inside the case). It idles around 2000 RPM and it sounds like a normal computer at idle does.

Mounting was simple, LGA1366 has a great backplate solution.

If you have good airflow, you can remove the CPU fan and run it passive.

Buying a second one right now.

Cons: If I had to, it would be that the fins can be bent easily. Make sure you handle them gingerly or grab them by the fan.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend for server builds that are low-profile or have close socket spacing. If you look at the Z8NR-D12 spacing, you can fit two of these side-by-side.

3 out of 5 eggsLOUD!!!

Pros: Seemed to keep processor cool when first bought.

Cons: Since bought it has become increasingly loud and keeps processor less cool...

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and efficient

Pros: Cools extremely hot Xeon processors very efficiently.

Cons: Warning! Make sure you set the fan speed in your BIOS because out-of-the-box they didn't run at a fast enough RPM to cool my processors causing it to shutdown. Once I enabled "high performance" in BIOS those heat sinks kept everything cool.

Other Thoughts: Great heat sink with high quality.

4 out of 5 eggsHigh quality, compact, loud.

Pros: High quality, very solid, compact, mounts easily. Literally no bigger than the heat sink mount for the processor, so no issues clearing nearby memory.

Cons: Can be loud at high RPM, fan isn't removable without removing the entire unit from the CPU. When dust collects between the fan and the fins, you have to blow it out with compressed air or pick it out with a small wire. If the fan was removable, it could easily be cleaned. Not a huge deal, since I've only had to do it once in 3 years.

Other Thoughts: Many reports of this cooler being loud... which it is without a doubt. It's extremely loud at higher RPM's, but it doesn't normally run at those speeds. On my dual Xeon E5530 (80 watt) in a SuperMicro X8DAL-i, the fans only become audible when I have the processors pegged at 100% rendering, and even then, the noise isn't objectionable. At any other time, they're virtually silent.

3 out of 5 eggsLoudest fan ever

Pros: Intel design (so it fits like its supposed to)
High RPM fan (9,500 rpm will keep the CPU as cold as ice)

Cons: LOUD -- 9,500rpm sounds like a jet engine in your ear

Other Thoughts: On my dual-Xeon Supermicro, these were running at full speed (9,500 rpms sounds like a jen engine in your ear). The issue was not enough air over the IOH on the board -- which I've solved, and these run very quietly now (most of the time). Still, startup is quite loud. These are the loudest fans I've ever used. Might help if there were more than 2 heatpipes, or if they offered this in a 4U version as well.

3 out of 5 eggsBeefy OEM heat sink

Pros: Heatsink is pretty heavy, with a decent sized copper pad to contact the CPU case. The unit itself is fairly compact, though, so it doesn't take up much more room than the footprint of the CPU socket and mounting holes. This is important with some boards, since the RAM banks are pretty close to the CPU sockets.

Cons: Three small strips of thermal paste don't give me a good feeling. I know Intel designed this for their chips, and I'm sure their engineers know exactly how much paste to use to make a good contact surface, but I feel a bit wary. I'll probably strip off the OEM material and put down some paste myself just to be sure.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this unit for a E5620 which is only an 80W TDP package, so this is a bit overkill. I'm hoping to see it manage CPU temperatures better than the unit rated for 80W, though.
