Pros: Great value and performance at this price point

Cons: Bundled installation instructions almost useless. Found a youtube video that showed some but not all of the steps.

Overall Review: I used this with a A8-5600K to replace the stock AMD cooler. The system would intermittently shutdown, since the day I put it together, and finally traced it to the CPU overheating. Apparently the stock AMD cooler was inadequate from day one. I don't game or overclock, but since this cooler was installed, the highest core temp I have seen is 32 degrees C.
