Makes mincemeat of a H75 (or I got a bro

So I've been using this cooler since about 2012 when I first built this system, and today I got a H75 liquid cooler unit to replace it.
The H75 ran like crap and couldn't cool with a damn on a stock i5 3570k (could be that I got a broken one, but this is my experience), and putting this one back onto my board resulted in one of the retention pins snapping. I've got it held in by string and it's still running over 6C cooler than the liquid cooler on idle, and well over 20C on full load.
This is the holy grail of budget CPU coolers.

Better than stock

I run an AMD FX 8350 and as we all know, AMDs run hot compared to Intel, so I can't give an opinion if you were to fit this to your Intel chip.

Compared to the stock cooler you get with the Piledriver CPUs, it's wonderful as the CPU runs cooler and it's a damned sight quieter too.

As it's a 92mm fan, and not especially top end, it can be a little whizzy when working hard, but it definitely lets your CPU run cooler than stock. The thermal paste is an unbranded sachet, I used Arctic Cooling MX-4 as it must be better (right?).

The AMD clamp is rock solid and very easy to fit, just line up the clips and pull the lever to secure.

It's pretty big, make sure you have space in your case, I have an NZXT Phantom 410 which houses it quite nicely with breathing room.
