Hello, I am looking for some insight on this CPU cooler. I have read many many reviews on the web as well as a lot of customer reviews on Newegg.com for this product. Most of them say it is a top-notch product while some tell horror stories of broken retaining clips and terrible installation. I don't know what to believe here and am wondering if anyone here uses this cooler or has any experience with it. I am running an AMD Athlon X2 5000+ Black Edition @ 3.1GHZ (up from 2.6). At stock speed, this CPU puts out 65w of thermal power. Overclocked, still at its stock voltage (using unlocked multiplier) it pushes only around 80w max. This is very low compared to some CPU's, but the stock cooler from my 3800+ just isn't cutting it.
This cooler is inexpensive at $20.00 with free shipping. I am just worried about the few negative ratings it got. My general thought is that it is a good product, I just like to hear from others! Here is the link to it on newegg:
Thanks, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
