Excellent Value, Excellent Cooling

I bought the Vendetta to replace the stock cooler on my Intel Q8200 Chip for a new computer build I recently did, and am extremely happy with it.

Installation was easy (I know many people complain about the Intel twisting mount pins, but I have had no problems with them) and it looks great in my case. The included fan is adds no ambient noise to my room that I can detect - the noise floor is clearly below the two very quiet case fans I have in the box. As for performance? Fantastic. I hesitate to quote temp figures since they are largely dependent on ambient air temp and other cooling factors, but on average I've seen a drop on all four cores of about 12 degrees C with the fan on, and about 2 degrees C without even using the fan - this is at rest or under load using Prime95.

I do acknowledge that it's large, but it does not block access to the ram on my board (an Asus EP45-UD3R) and fits easily in my mid-tower case. I know it's inexpensive, but it sure doesn't perform like a cheap cooler.

VERY highly recommended.
