Pros: At the stock clock on my FX8350, this worked awesome.
Cons: Fans are LOUD and the screw holes strip quite easily.
Other Thoughts: So far I am kinda disappointed with the performance of this with my FX8350. At stock clock, it is fine but I currently have mine at 4.5GHz and the CPU get to 58*C which from what I have read is only a couple off from the max of 65*C for the FX8350. I tried 4.8GHz at first and within a couple minutes of playing BF4, I was over 72*C. I was kinda expecting the larger 240M radiator to do better at cooling it. I don’t know it it is the fans or something with the mooting but at about 54*C my fans come on high and I get a bad rattle. I have tried adjusting the screws and making sure the rubber dampeners are secured but still have a rattle.
