Yeah - I know this is a REALLY old thread, but when I saw the heat sink, I felt compelled to share my experience. A friend who knows I'm in to PCs has a brother (that I don't know very well; we met once or twice). My friend's Mom was cleaning out the brother's room (the brother was in to PCs and had left for college; my friend is not really in to PCs, he surfs and uses MySpace and FaceBook, but isn't >INTO< computers like his brother or like we are). When Mom was done cleaning the room, she had a box full of PC stuff, and she asked my friend if he knew anyone that could use it (the brother gave the "OK"), and he then gave the box of stuff to me. The box was full of cables, 3 or 4 floppy drives, an old 8x CDRW, a couple of VERY low-end PSUs (250w Deer and a 300w Generic), and an AMD cooler I had never seen before carefully wrapped in bubble-wrap in a ziploc bag. Well, I accepted the box, and ran that cooler on a dual core AMD64 5600+ X2 for about 2 years, and the CPU never got over 48c. NEVER. Even with CPU stress tests, through all kinds of gaming, that cooler simply kicked butt.... it's not silent, but high performance cooler are VERY rarely silent. Just for fun, I even ran it on my PhenomII X4 955BE for a few hours just to see how it behaved, and it handled the job beautifully (considering it was never intended for a quad core) and the CPU never went over 60c, and that was after about 40min of an Everest stress test. By far, this cooler is one of the best (if not THE BEST) free stock cooler ever. Period.
