3 out of 5 eggs No better than stock 08/20/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z1 Long life ball bearing for over 45,000/hrs CPU Cooler

Pros:

reasonably quiet, cheap replacement. easy to install

Cons:

only 3 pin connector so it doesnt rev up under load. with stock cooler my temps never went above 56º while playing SWTOR. with this Rosewill, my temps in game are about 68º-70º with fan turned all the way up. still within operating limits, but definitely not an improvement.

manual speed controller poor substitute for 4-pin auto boost.

the pre-applied thermal grease is cheap quality stuff that dries into a flaky crust. wipe it off and use Arctic Silver.

Other Thoughts:

offer this with a 4-pin connector and dump the manual speed controller (which mounts in the back of the case) and you might have a winner. AMD 9850 Black Edition Quad Core 2.5ghz
