Pros

Lots of mounting options
Cons
Convex base
Summary
The ability to mount a 80mm fan on this cooler is nice, and should provide excellent cooling at high chipset voltage. The picture above doesn't show but it comes with another flat mounting clip and spring loaded plastic push pins, as well as a couple of plastic washers in addition to the rubber ones shown. Mine also come with a large syringe of Chill Factor white grease.

The base is meh, with clearly visible machining marks. Unfortunately it is also very much convex and must be lapped to make proper contact with an exposed chipset die. This shouldn't be necessary and is the reason I give it only a 3 star rating.

Pros

large surface area for cooling
ok price
Cons
Quite large and may not be compatible depending what other hardware there are
Need to modify the mounting clip in order to work with southbridge
Summary
I bought this heatsink for my 680i board and it fitted, barely, onto the southbridge in between the two 8800GT in SLI setup. The mount clip it came with, as you can see on the photo, angled upward is blocked by the video card. I ended up using a different Thermalright mount clip that I had. Also notice that there is a little groove at the center of the heatsink's base. It would prevent the heatsink from being installed off center relative to the chip, so you need to drill the mounting clip if you need to install it off center in order to avoid a video card, or capacitor.

Removing of mosfet cooler
Summary
Bought it to go on my Asus P5K. I had to cut the heatpipe with a saw to keep the mosfet cooler, and that made me remove the board. So instalation was long an painful, retention mechanism with hook system is not perfect, you can still move the cooler if you do not pay attentiom. The cooler look very nice, is very big (for cooling a chip as small as the NB), and I guess it is very effective, since I do not have a temperature sensor on a mobo as cheap as a P5K. Keep my E8400 running at 4410mhzf1.55v with no problem, wich is what I wanted.

Pros

- Quality construction.
- Excellent cooling.
- Can be used fanless.
Cons
- Retention mechanism.
Summary
Replaced an Evercool VC-RE that was failing with this cooler. Had a hard time getting it installed on my DFI LAN-Party UT SLI-DR motherboard. This board isn't laid out all that well, making things a tight fit in that particular area (probably should be avoided if you have a huge video card). Plus the retention mechanism is a bit flimsy too. Too my surprise it didn't need an 80mm fan, and actually runs several degrees cooler now passively than it did with the active Evercool, which is a decent cooler in it's own right.

Pros

Looks mean, keeps NB cool.
Cons
Mounting hardware
Summary
Great NB heatsink, it was a pain to install though. Especially since my CPU's heatsink is practically touching it. This thing has style and lowered my NB temps 15 degs using the paste included. Highly recommended, kicks arse.

Pros

- Thermalright quality & design
- Sturdy
Cons
- Retention mechanism
Summary
Bought to replace my DFI Blood Iron's northbridge heatsink...

The installation was pretty straightforward, but the retention mechanism is pretty lame. TR should of used spring-loaded screws, like on the TR Ultimate cpu heatsink.

I'm confident I'll see some good temp drops, once the MX-2 paste has settled though.

Looks pretty wicked !

Pros

Great cooling ability
Cons
maybe some easier to install it without taking the board from the case.
Summary
Woot, cool my NB temp 20degrees lower than before on DFI p35-t2rs with stock heatsink. I void the warranty to put this on, much much cooler now. A good NB heatsink!

Pros

efficient with added fan
Cons
mounting hardware (not secure)
Summary
this heatsink works well when an 80mm fan attached. The mounting hardware leaves a little to be desired. The swivel function is handy but when tightened down the heatsink should not move so easily.(nothing a little imagination and modding can't fix.

Comment: Good review. Compared against stock heatsink on Biostar TA690G AM2. Showed tremendous improvement in temps dropping from 49C to 18C when using AC5 and 80mm fan. The review also compared against the previous gen HR-05 and temps dropped from 27C to 24-25C. The included heatsink compound was
