Pros: The heat-sink works very well. Under normal operating conditions it runs between 40 to 42 degrees C. It all depends on your room temperature though because it can run as low as 32 to 34 degrees as well. If you were to strap a couple fans on it I am sure it would easily beat anything out there on the market.
I love not having a jet engine taking off beside me as I work. The 0 noise is fantastic.
Cons: The straps they send you and the instructions I do not find to be the best if your using it on a AMD AMM3 Board. Take my advise and use the strap that came with your original AMD AM3 heat sink on your new heat sink and you should be fine. Other wise you'll end up with a paper weight because the strap they send you is to tight and will bend your pipes if you use it. That is what I think anyways.
No need to mess around with a back plate if your board already has one.
Other Thoughts: A word of advise is to run a program that allows you to monitor the heat coming off your CPU and to keep an eye on it. Every once and a while make sure to blow it out with a can of compressed air to keep it clean and working correctly.READ FULL REVIEW
