I built a media center PC with a Biostar Micro ATX FM2 Socket motherboard for $70 which came with a free 2x4GB G.Skill DDR3-1600 Ripjaws X Series Ram, an AMD A6-5400K APU for $65, and put them in a small Thermaltake case I got at Microcenter for $30. Happened to have a corsair 430w PSU and Logitech K400 wireless keyboard/trackpad all laying around. Overall, got a really nice media center PC running Windows 8 for under $200.
+ Easy Install. Very similar to every other air cooler out there on the market. Install backplate. Screw in some screws. Apply Thermal Interface Material. Place heatsink. More Screws. Done.
+ Not that the A6-5400K is very difficult to cool - it was running at ~33C on the stock cooler which was basically a tin can with thermal tape on the bottom and a $0.25 fan on it - but it kept my APU at about room temperature idle, and around 46C running Prime95 for an hour. My office where the computer was tested for this was about 67F because I turned the heat off and it was in the 20s outside. Obviously the extent to which an air cooler can effectively cool a CPU is determined by the ambient temperature.
+ Works fine with FM2 socket. I know that a lot of air coolers don't specify FM2 socket compatibility, but it's not any different from FM1/AM3/AM3+/etc....if you're installing a backplate specifically for the heatsink, then it's going to be compatible. The holes on the motherboard are the same distance apart on all the sockets as far as I can tell without using a ruler.Read more ›
I should also mention I didn't use included thermal paste..I used ceramic paste (Arctic Cooler mx-2)
This is a pretty easy install, but involved a lot of labor because I had my motherboard already installed. You will have to have the motherboard out to install the backing plate, but other than that the instructions were pretty straight forward and easy to follow. One thing I did notice is when I looked at the bottom of the heatsink there were a few gouges (minor but noticeable) in the heatpipes. I wasn't expecting a mirrored finish (obviously), but for $40 retail I would have expected better quality. The heatsink does come with all the hardware you will need, plus extra mounting brackets for installing an additional 120MM fan.
Here is a breakdown of temperatures before and after the install. Full load was done with Prime95:
AMD Phenom II X6 1045T Processor Stock 2.6 GHz - 3.2 Turbo (AM3 Socket)
24C Idle / 57C Full Load
T40 Heatsink/Fan (with Arctic 5 Thermal):
13C Idle / 31C Full Load
I did purchase Arctic 5 Thermal Compound and didn't use the one that came with the fan. This thing did bring down my temps by about 10-20C, but you can get a Cool Master 212 Plus for about $15 less and it looks more like a finished product and I've seen good reviews on it.Read more ›
The T20 is very quiet, even while gaming. This was such a big difference for me. My room no longer sounds like a wind tunnel.
The temps for my CPU went down. With my 955 BE stock cooler i was getting 35c idle and 55c load. With the T20 i am getting 30c idle and 50c load.
I did not find this listed but it does come with thermal paste. It comes in a small packet, not a tube. There was plenty for 1 application.
It fits inside a NZXT Gamma case without contact.
I did not know this because it's the first after market CPU cooler i have purchased. When installing on a AMD system you have to have the fan blowing air threw the top of the case. This was an issue for me because the fan is almost in contact with my G.Skill Ripjaw ram. I would much prefer the Intel setup having the fan blow air out the side, there is plenty more room for the ram like this.

not that great if the heat pipes where pushed together better mite work really wellPublished 14 months ago by justin slick
Great CPU cooler. Looks nice, cools effectively, and is quiet to boot! It's also a steal at $20 I just wish the installation instructions were a bit more clear. Read morePublished on July 2, 2014 by David
This thing gets great temps under load, but this thing is super loud all of the time. Even with light browsing, this thing cranks out a good 45 db. Read morePublished on April 26, 2014 by ledzepfan98
This unit replaced a closed loop system that had a bad fan (it was built in, and couldn't be replaced). Read morePublished on March 13, 2014 by Scott Smith
Great for older mobo's. Probably would be enough for newer mobos, although would recommend larger fan passive cooling with more fins for greater heat. Read morePublished on February 15, 2014 by Roland
It works better than the stock heatsink from AMD, and is not loud the total build was pretty quite with a corsair case. Read morePublished on February 3, 2014 by that guy
This item was a great substitute for active water cooling my rig. It is actually quieter than my other computer that has an h60 in it. Read morePublished on February 1, 2014 by Ryan Jetton
