This thing is pretty great once installed. I saw it recommended on SilentPCreview.com. It was a little annoying to install but not terrible. You'll want a very long #3 Phillips screwdriver for one. One of my back plate screws was very poorly manufactured and cross threaded and didn't want to screw in. I had to work really hard to get it go in and stay straight. Once I got it the rest was ok but it is challenging to to balance the two sides of the tensioning plate.
One I got it init works great. It's very quiet and run cool. I have the fan running at the quietest mode and the processor cores stay well under 70C usually under 50C. The price is right and it's quiet.
