This review is from: Scythe SCKC-3000 Grand Kama Cross 2 CPU Cooler
Pros: Brought the load temp on my CPU down 20 degrees compared to the stock cooler (LGA 1150 Intel i7), for a reasonable price.
Cons: Very difficult installation, and I have relatively small hands. The installation will get increasingly more difficult the bigger your hands are. If you're getting this for a new machine, buy a large case to make the installation easier.
Other Thoughts: Would recommend despite the installation difficulty.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Amazing performance for the price point. Definitely worth the extra few bucks to get this over a Sempron. The heatsink also installs very easily, which is something that cannot be said about the Sempron.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this for a media server running Gentoo and haven't had any issues so far. Much better performance than I expected from a $50 processor.READ FULL REVIEW
