The clearance is not high enough for even Low Profile RAM on my ITX Board.
Geekavenger
Also, for those who are wondering, the only difference between the CNPS8900 Quiet and Extreme is the fan speed.
Bob from Ohio
This cooler is working very well and keeping temps way down and doing it relatively quietly.

I installed this on an ASUS M4A88T-M LE motherboard with an AMD 1090T processor in a hec Black HTPC case (7K09BBA30FNRX).

This is a fantastic cooler. However, it's difficult to install. I would have gladly paid an additional $10 for one that was specific to an AM3 socket mount, but this will have to do.

Compared to the stock cooler that came with my AMD 1090T (Phenom II 3.2 GHz 6-core processor) at idle my CPU temp dropped a full 10° Celsius (18° F) and at full load it dropped 14° C (25° F). Plus it is a heck of a lot quieter.

This cooler was worth the hassle to install.

As other reviewers state, you do have to install this cooler with the motherboard out of the case. This is a fact of life, for nearly all low-profile coolers; you save height clearance by removing the stock motherboard bracket with the fan clip holders on it, and using a backplate so you can screw the heatsink's bracket directly to the motherboard.

It's also a fact of life for HTPC and SFF builds; they are always more difficult, and you have to do the build in the order specified by the case manufacturer, to fit everything into the special compact case. So normally you would start by installing your low-profile RAM onto the motherboard, then your CPU, paste, and this fan. (It's best to sit the mobo on top of some anti-static foam while you're working on it; hopefully you have some from the motherboard's box or another piece of electronics you bought.) If the mobo, memory, and CPU/fan all fit together OK, then you proceed with the build according to the case's instructions.

Other reviewers have also pointed out that the included instructions have small print; however you can download the manual online and see it much bigger. (It's 2013, this is a computer part, who cares about printed instructions.) The instructions are mostly pictures, not unlike assembly instructions for international furniture. So pay really close attention to the orientation of the clip items as you add them to the backplate and fan.

Also, you will have a much easier time installing this fan, with another pair of hands. It's do-able by yourself, because they include some two-sided tape to help hold the backplate in place while you install the fan. But it's much easier with a friend holding the board still, while you align the backplate and tape it on.

I purchased this in hopes of finding a reasonably quiet fan, one that doesn't sound like an airplane engine at full speed, and unfortunately I didn't quite find what I'm looking for with this one. In fairness, it is, in fact, much quieter than the previous gigantic and unnecessary cpu fan it replaced; but along with the quieter white noise production, it also produces a faint, high-pitched sound that drives me more than a little nuts. I do happen to have sensitive hearing, so I wouldn't be surprised if not everyone can hear it, but if my room happens to be quiet at the time... yeah, I can definitely hear and feel it. And then start to obsess over it, because... can't you all HEAR that? Really? You don't hear that ever-relenting noise sucking the memories from our brains? No?

It was also such a pain to install, which included completely removing the motherboard, that it's definitely going to stay put until I can figure out what I want to do next. Until then I just make sure I've got music playing or headphones on so I don't have to be dragged kicking and screaming to an asylum because I won't shut up about that "noise" that no one else can hear.

Yes, I know, it's hard being me.

It will block the PCIx slot on Mini-Itx, wouldn't fit my ASUS P8H67-I DELUXE unless I don't want a video card

As with most Zalman Coolers I've used, this one is super quiet, and keeps things nice and cool. It's a little wide for Mini or Micro ATX boards since the fan pattern on the heatsink will protrude over the RAM slots, but it's not a deal breaker.

As other reviewers have said, installing this is really frustrating. You have to keep two tiny pieces in place on each leg of the backplate while you install it on the back of the motherboard. I ended up using scotch tape to keep them on until it was secured and then taking the pieces off. Then, I had to push down unreasonably hard on the cooler (and the cpu) to get its legs close enough for the screws to connect at all. I'm not sure if they were bent back a bit or if that's just how they're designed. When I was done and had everything back in the case, the motherboard was actually warped a little bit from it.

In spite of all that, I'd still get it again. It's the only quiet cooler I could find that would fit in my low profile case. The noise is drastically cut down and the temperature of the CPU has been well within safe levels even when running new games. There have been no issues from the slight warping of the motherboard.

I purchased this cpu cooler to go with an ASRock FM2A88M-HD+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) microATX motherboard. I was looking to improve cooling and lower noise over stock cpu cooler.
For the positives: Yes it is quiet, can't tell it is running with an AMD A10-6800K BE Richland 4.1GHz (4.4GHz) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core APU. This specific APU comes with a factory milled chunk of aluminium and a smallish (loud) fan mounted on top. I am a believer in the heat pipes and big fans for quietly keeping a processor cool so it has that covered. And it comes with just the right quantity of thermal grease. A popular hardware site reveals that what comes with aftermarket coolers is good enough. They also rated highly this cooler. However...

It looses a star for the installation: The caps and nuts should be made so they snap in place and stay captive of the backplate during assembly. Fortunately, some tape helped temporarily secure it to the motherboard... Fastening to the motherboard was also tricky.

Another star taken away because an FM2 cpu cooler should be fully compatible with an FM2 motherboard and not encroach over other components. With the above mentioned combination, the memory stick closest to the cpu touches one heat pipe, causing the memory to overheat and shut down the PC. So no dual channel memory possible here! I used (2 x 4GB) DDR3 2133 to fully take advantage of the APU. Most memory at that speed feature heat spreaders sticking up, which does not help with the clearance issue. So yes, as advertised it is compabible with FM2 socket, just not fully compatible with all motherboards.
