Style Name: T20
I bought this on Black Friday for $9.99 with Amazon Prime free 2-day shipping. Got here on Monday.

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.

Pros:
+ 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.

During black friday this was a great deal for $20 but for any higher, I would recommend the 212 Evo. Out of the box it was evident the surface was not smooth or flat. Luckily I had a fret leveler(very flat heavy tool for sanding,leveling guitar frets) which fixed that problem.I use this with fan push/pull configuration on my i7 2700K running @4.8GHz. Temps stay under 75c full load using Prime 95 to stress. These results are on par with another i7 rig I have that uses the 212 Evo.
I should also mention I didn't use included thermal paste..I used ceramic paste (Arctic Cooler mx-2)

Like the other reviewer said, these heatsink/fans were on a black Friday sale. I picked up the T40 for $20 dollars, awesome price and it fit pretty much every newer CPU socket. I was in need for a new heatsink as we all know the stock ones are cheap with the smallest fans imaginable. I plan on doing some mild overclocking in the future and decided to pick this one up because, well, it was on sale. I was eyeing the Cool Master Evo 212, but decided to go with this one which was $10 less at the time.

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)

Stock Heatsink/Fan:
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.

Style Name: T20 Verified Purchase
I bought the T20 during Black Friday for $10, which is a steal. For the past year i have been using the stock cooler that came with my 955 BE CPU. The fan on that is so loud! When i play a demanding game i can hear it getting louder and louder, the fan also grinds against the heatsink. During the summer it's unbearable.

Pros:

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.

Cons:

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.
