Top customer reviews
I have done no detailed analysis or test on the temps, but they are fine: a Core i5 3750K stays under light load around 35°C, which is fine.
For a budget heatsink it keeps my i7 processor at 35 degrees or less at idle and under load it hasn't exceeded 60 degrees yet. It is also very quiet.
The installation for the 2011 socket is simple.
It also has good RAM clearance if you are using high profile RAM. I have an ASUS Rampage IV Extreme and it clears the 4 DIMM slots on the fan side, but only clears 3 slots on the metal heatsink side.
All in all good budget heatsink.
In summary it is a great product, especially for the low price.

Arrived on time, packed propely.
All contents present.
Doesn't look like much after you pull the fan off for installation. Almost a not all there feeling.
Works like a charm though. Decent hardware, size should fit in most mid tower cases. Has openings in the bottom
to cool items on the motherboard. I noticed my Northbridge temps dropped several degrees. No clearence issues with other items on the board.
Installed on a Intel i5 3570K CPU. Temps went from 35C idle, down to 24C. Loaded 45C down to 35C. Before are with the EVO cooler.
In a tight case, Antec GX500. About 3/8" clearence to the side door. Artic Silver paste.
System is a lot faster now that it is cooler.
If your case has decent airflow as mine does (Rosewill Thor V2) then this bad boy will keep your CPU frosty, nearly 12f below the N520 and nearly 15f below the Evo 212! It was simple to install, not too bulky, works like a charm.
