    Pros: Nice unit, solidly built, looks as it if would be easy to install on a Motherboard that had NOTHING around the processor.
    Cons: Intel WX58BP has capacitor, resistors and other circuits around the CPU mount that are raised above the board. This unit cannot make contact with the CPU unless parts are removed from the motherboard.....it physically does not fit on the board.

    Pros: Works extremely well for the price even being forced to blow one cooler into the next on a dual setup. Solid mounting and solid construction. Fans are quiet but when ambient temps raise, these fans can push some air.
    Cons: None

Remember, incompetence is not an option on tech knowledge, but 1 egg is!

    Pros: Seems to work, my system has been available 24/7 for months. It is a workstation but the users won't power the machines down .... ever. ...Cons: LOUD, LOUD,…

    Cons: LOUD, LOUD, LOUD. We refer to the system as the Jet. I have tried repositioning them but can't get them to do anything than roar. THey are not always going but when they do people start to fasten their seatbelts and put their tray tables up.

    This heat sink is a good value but make sure you check your motherboard for fit. I originally bought this for an Intel motherboard but there are components…

    Pros: A heatsink that's not an aftermarket part that actually does a decent job!
    Easy installation, no more banged up knuckles and finger tips.
    Cons: A little pricey

    Easy installation, no more banged up knuckles and finger tips. A little pricey I didn't have a lot of options for this processor, luckily intel supports their products pretty well.

    Pros: Small size, quiet, active. Not much more you can ask for when looking for a cooling solution on a dual 1366 ATX board, in a non-server application. These are a lot quieter than the previous 1366 Xeon active heatsinks we've used.
    Note: These heatsinks require a motherboard with thread holes for the screws to thread into. If your board doesn't have these threaded holes, forget it.
    Cons: None

    Note: These heatsinks require a motherboard with thread holes for the screws to thread into. If your board doesn't have these threaded holes, forget it. None One CPU will be slightly higher in temperature. This is not a design flaw on Intel's part (unless you bought an Intel motherboard), but rather, a motherboard design flaw. The close proximity of the CPUs is to blame, not the heatsink. Turning the heatsinks around so that the fans are opposing sides, and thus changing the airflow so that they're going in different directions, should remedy this slight problem.

    Pros: Small
    Cons: If running 2 CPU set up one cool but the other over heats
    Small If running 2 CPU set up one cool but the other over heats Water Cool or use H-50 if running dual CPU set up

    Pros: This is the only active heat sink with fan that I can find for the Xeon E5520 that will fit on my Z8NA-D6 motherboard.
    Cons: None
    This is the only active heat sink with fan that I can find for the Xeon E5520 that will fit on my Z8NA-D6 motherboard. None Even with the heat sink installed, there is still a 5 degree difference between the two E5520 mounted onto the Z8NA-D6 motherboard sitting in a HAF922 mid-tower case. I mounted a 200 mm fan to the side of the HAF922 and the temperate difference between the two CPU drop to 1 degree.

    Pros: Easy to install, fits well on ATX dual motherboards
    Cons: Had to remove the cheap thermal paste it comes with
    Easy to install, fits well on ATX dual motherboards Had to remove the cheap thermal paste it comes with I was really surprised how quiet this HSF was while still keeping my 80w 5520's nice and cool. Good deal.

    Pros: Works just fine. Fits perfectly with two processors on my Asus Z8NA-D6C.
    Cons: None to speak of.

    Pros: This is a good little hs-fan... had to replace it after 4 years, but bought another... just sounding a little loud... needed to clean it more often.
    Cons: NONE

    Pros: Short
    Cons: Haven't gotten a chance to try it. But read my other thoughts
    Short Haven't gotten a chance to try it. But read my other thoughts The bottom is a flat bit of metal. Make sure you have nothing on the motherboard between the four screw points that is taller than your cpu or else this heatsink will either crush whatever that is or it will detonate your processor when you try to start it the first time.

    Pros: Intel Quality
    Cons: be careful. touches cap 686 on a super micro board x8dal-i-o
    don't know if I should blame super micro or Intel for this, but I have had good luck with SM so I am dinging Intel on this one

    Pros: Keeps the cpu temperature below 50 C in my system.
    Cons: This fan is loud at full speed and I mean LOUD! My Supermicro motherboard has four options for fan speed adjustment: super quiet, workstation, server, and full speed. This fan is so loud in server and full speed modes that will drive you crazy if you are near the computer. I decided to use the workstation mode (30% of full speed). but it's still a bit loud and distractive.
