I purchased this to cool an AMD A10 5600K mounted on an ASRock FM2A85X-ITX Mini ITX FM2. The build is a mini ITX budget gaming box for my son that I kind of cobbled together (my 2nd build). The Scythe was probably the best decision I made of all the parts I bought.

I had originally purchased the Cooler Master Geminii M4 but was unable to mount it properly due to the position of chips on the back of the motherboard and the provided Cooler Master backplate. I tried modifying the mount but could never get decent temps with the Cooler Master. The stock fan worked but was super loud. I ordered the Scythe after poring over forums in search of a compatible aftermarket cooler. This cooler also uses a backplate but there is padding in place which keeps it from pressing against the chips. I mounted the cooler a few months ago and my temps were 5-10C cooler and I didn't have to hear the jet engine when the CPU was under load. Haven't had any temp or noise issues since.

Fits in a Silverstone Ml03b just fine. Cools a hot c2quad Q9650 to 40c idling and keeps it at 64c at 1400rpm...59c ish at full 2100rpm...which is noisy by the way...but it never reaches that speed in my setup.

This was purchased for a XBMCbuntu HTPC to reduce the noise from the stock Intel hsf, which at full load kept bridging 80c, idled at 50c and @2000rpm was very loud.

Very impressed with the heat dissipation capabilities and the zero noise factor at HTPC duties. My psu is louder than this thing. Also, the fan runs at 600rpm and keeps the proc at 50c... In other words its Inaudible unless you put your face 1ft away from it.

To put it Into perspective my ps3 is louder than my htpc now that I've installed this hsf and replaced my psu fan with a Swiftec Helix.

Pros:
- Superior heat dissipation in tight, low airflow environments, which in my case, my htpc case has Zero case fans. Even the psu does not extract heat from the case. MY Silverstone ml03b runs no casefans with this hsf.
- Low speed half height fan is very quiet.
- sturdy mounting system
- extreme low height

Cons:
- Instructions could be better, but still an easy install...mobo has to be out of the case though.
- I must have missed the boat, bc these are no longer available from typical overclocking and PC enthusiast vendors anymore. I'm actually going to buy another one now, just in case I need it for another build.

Other thoughts:
- Don't overclock with this thing or put it on a higher watt CPU. It's not designed for OCing. My workstation runs on water, now that's for OCing...this is for low noise, low heat HTPC applications.

Finding a good heat sink that will fit in a thin HTPC case like a Lian Li PC-C37 (3.7" tall) is challenging!

But this little cooler does the trick! At full speed the fan is noticeable (but not awful). The fan is PWM, so any modern motherboard will run it at very low speed (~300-400 rpm) for almost all use with an i3-2100 CPU (if the BIOS is set-up properly). Even running OCCT for an extended period only slightly increases the fan speed, although this cooler would easily be overwhelmed by an overclocked i7-2600K running full-bore!!

For my installation, this is the only fan in the entire system (Seasonic X400 fanless power supply). The result is a nearly silent (to my ears) HTPC. The slow SATA HDDs are basically the only noise sources, and only audible when seeking.

Installation is non-trivial, requiring simultaneous access to both sides of the board. The included directions are very poor, with no simple cross-reference to the labels of various parts mentioned in the written steps. Fortunately the diagrams are reasonably clear, so I was able to eventually figure everything out, and subsequent installations will be very easy (but always will require simultaneous access to both sides of the board).

As of February 2012, unlike the description on Amazon's site (and also on Scythe's site!), the *ONLY* change for "Rev B" is Socket LGA2011 compatibility. The fins, heat-pipe count (5) and fan are identical. Scythe has simply updated the mounting kit.

I'm using this on an AMD Phenom II x6 1090T. It's a 135w space heater that's overpowered for the HTPC I'm using it in. There's not a lot of clearance in the case. Upright fans don't fit. I've been using the noisy stock fan for a couple years, but recently I'd had enough of the noise. at up to 75% speed, this fan is nearly inaudible because it is quieter than the case fans. At 100%, it's audible, but still quiet.

With the stock cooler, the CPU was reporting temps of 55-65C under a very modest load. Prime95 would cause a thermal failsafe shutdown. With the Scythe running at 75% speed and under a similar modest load, I'm at 45-55C, With Prime95 running, the fan will kick up to 100% but the temps never get to 60C. This is still very hot, but more a function of the processor in a cramped case, which itself is then put on too small of a compartment in my outdated entertainment center. Yes, I still have one.

The fan is large. I can't dock it any stars for its size, but know that you may have problems finding the room for it without it hitting something else. It barely clears (horizontally) my PSU, drives, and PCIe cards.

The fan is great, but the one star deduction is for installation. The AM2/AM3 socket has a standard mount that I assume is present on all compatible motherboards. So that this fan could work with a wider range of sockets, there's a new mount to be installed under the motherboard and some different types of top-side brackets that can be mounted to the heatsink. I had to disassemble the entire computer to install it.
