Pros: 6 cores for $200 - enough said.

This review is from: ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm Ceramic CPU Cooler
Pros: Much quieter than the stock cooler that came with my Phenom II x6 1055T; easily keeps the CPU under 35C at idle
Cons: - Consdierably more difficult to install than the stock cooler was
- Fan grill sticks out over one of the RAM slots; though the bottom part of the guard is deliberatlely "missing"; so it *might* be possible to slide the DIMM into the slot without having to remove the cooler
