I used the stock Intel cooler on my i5 3570k with MX-4 paste and compared this cooler using the pre-applied MX-2 paste and cooling performance was actually worse by a good 4-5c. I don't know if MX-2 is that much worse or if they applied too much of it. Scraped off the MX-2 and applied my MX-4 and my load temps improved by about 5-7c.
I have been floored by this coolers performance. I just went from a mid tower to a mini itx and could not fit my hyper 212 in the case, until i can afford a full 200mm rad for the cpu i was just gonna fudge it with a dinky stock replica.... well heres something. It keeps an overclocked i5-2500k (4.0 ghz) under 70 degrees celcius, not the best but my god the thing is not at all audible. It is like I have liquid cooling in the case right now the thing is so silent. It is a TREMENDOUS value, for comparison the hyper 212 is 35$ and in a mid tower it kepy my i5-2500k (4.4 ghz) under 60 degrees, but that thing is a true after market heatsink. In comparison this is a champion of dinky heatsinks, that it is 9$ is just amazing. I'm not going to water cool anymore, 70 degrees is way below danger zone and it is just so silent.
I got this heatsink for a core i5 2400 processor and found this to be really quiet. It does a great job for the processor. The plastic is a little flimsy, but nothing serious. Great heatsink for regular use.
it is what it is an alternative heatsink to a broken or worn out oem cooler or if one were so inclined buy an oem processor for a lower cost and use this instead of the oem to save a couple dollars. as far as installation goes its the same push pins as the original cooler and it comes with factory heatsink material installed so perfect for the novice to install.
