Thermaltake CLP0579 120mm Contac 30 Intel LGA-2011 Ready 160W TDP Heatpipe Direct-contact Technology CPU Cooler
  • 800 - 2,000 RPM
  • 29.434 - 72.084 CFM
  • Alumium Fins & Aluminum Extrusion Cover

Pros:

This heatsink/fan has kept my cpu cool for almost 3 years and is still quiet.
Great longevity and quality for the money($32.99 in 10/2010).
Glossy fan doesn't collect dust as much as the non-glossy fans. when the dust does collect, it's easier to notice and clean off the fan.

I used this with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Kuma 7750 2.7GHz Black Edition and could overclock to 3.0GHz and keep it stable.
When I upgraded to an AMD Phenom2 X4 965 3.4Ghz Black Edition, I overclocked it to a stable 3.9GHz. I put it though the Prime95 "torture test" for 24 hours and the temp never went above 57degrees Celsius.

Cons:

The rubber fan mounts are somewhat difficult to deal with (however they do almost eliminate vibration noise from the fan).
The installation for this requires it to be positioned so that the airflow will be going toward the top of the case or down toward the bottom of the case. I wanted the exhaust to go out the back of the case, not up into my power supply or down onto my graphics card. The power supply gets warmer than when I had the stock cooler installed because of this issue.

Other Thoughts:

I bought this after I bought the computer case (Rosewill Conqueror). If I had known about the installation issue in the "Con"section, I would have bought a different case where the PSU mounted on the bottom, or, bought a different heatsink/fan that aimed the exhaust out the back of the case..
