I'm glad I bought it
Pros: I almost did not buy this HSF because of all the bad reviews.... am I glad I did not listen. I installed the HSF on my Asus M2NBP-VM CSM and it is 100% compatible, even faces the correct way with the exhaust towards the back. The mounting mechanism is very simple. I was able to install the HSF in 30 seconds without removing my motherboard (Socket AM2). My 100% load temp is now as high as the idle temps with my stock cooler. I have a AMD 4600+ and my idle temp is 1C over ambient temp 29C and 40C at 100% load on both cores. Did I mention that the HSF is very quite, I have the ASUS fan control enabled which idles the fan at ~750rpm. I'm so glad I did not buy the loud and HEAVY Zalman fan.
Cons: I can't believe it is cheap, lighter then others and has no cons.....
