Pros: Fits northbridge hooks on Intel mini-itx D945GCLF2 (zalman and some others do NOT, since mobo only has two of the four possible hooks)
Cons: insufficient to cool northbridge on D945GCLF2 fanless (with arctic silver 5) - without a fan mobo would shut down after about 2 mins. (going fanless was the point of the purchase, and RMA would be silly for $20 item)
Other Thoughts: If your current northbridge is fanless this would presumably work well, and if you have other cooling that draws/blows across northbridge on a D945GCLF2 then it might be sufficient without fan. Since it's solid pure copper it is quite easy to bend - be cautious when attaching the fan-mount bracket.
