Was skeptical, now I'm a believer!!

Strengths of the product
I just recently blew an old AMD CPU Phenom II 1075T. Long story short I salvaged the PC with an older AMD Phenom II 965 but it seemed to be running hot. Because I'm looking at a new build soon, I thought I'd try this CPU cooler to test for now and inform future decisions. I was skeptical a liquid cooler would make much of a difference.... Holey smoke was I wrong. CPU easily runs 10ºC cooler, under load and while running idle. I'm a believer...
Weaknesses of the product
The install wasn't that foolproof!! The radiator just fit the older ATX case. Caution make sure your case holes line up w/radiator holes. I didn't look all that closely, ended up going through the radiator itself. I was lucky, there appear to be no leaks. Also had trouble mounting the fan to the radiator, it was easier to do before attaching the radiator to the case contrary to what the instructions say. As I type this, CPU is idling at 30ºC with 20% load.
I would recommend this product. I think it is worth the extra spend on any build.
