Pros: Capable of cooling AM3 Phenom II *4 955 OCd to 3.9 with no problems.
Quiet Quiet Quiet
Cons: Funny looking - but I can deal with that.
Other Thoughts: I have the older version of this - the wings are aluminum instead of copper. Has always been excellent cooler and very quiet. Decided to try it on my latest Phenom II AM3 build with is OCd and is running like a champ. Cores never get over 125F and is still very quiet. Copper looks nice though!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent chip for the cash - can't beat this deal.
Included heat sink was better than expected.
Another great chip from AMD.
Cons: Only 4 cores.
Doesn't make sandwiches.
Other Thoughts: Overclocks to 4.3 with no problem - was running a little hot though with 0nly air cooling so I dialed it back to 3.9g
Was running prime95 while surfing the web - didn't skip a beat - wouldn't have known the pc was doing anything in the background. HUGE step up from the Athlon II 2.8 dual core my last machine was based on.
