I had this on an AMD CPU. It was positioned sideways (due to the way I placed PC on the floor). Over time the fan assembly started to rattle a bit and it was really annoying. If the heatsink was not lifted off the CPU, it may not have happened. Just a word of caution on how not to position the heatsink. Had I placed the PC in a way that the heat sink was positioned vertically above the CPU, it would have been fine.

What do you mean it was sideways? These heatsinks should have no issues no matter which orientation they're mounted. Moving parts just fail sometimes.

Think of mobo standing vertically and the heatsink at 90 degrees on the side. Both heatsink fans were OK but the heatsink developed rattle due to gravity causing some strain over time. Now I just stick to heatsinks that are not lifted off the CPU using heatpipes. I had the 212X, dual fan model.

It sounds like maybe yours didn't get tightened down enough. Once I got mine snug, it didn't rattle. Mine is positioned with its top towards the side window of my case, and it works great. I had to get mine as tight as it would go. I don't move my case around much though, so maybe that is why.

Too late, I sold it soon after it acted up. I could have gone back and tightened things up but I was probably already on to the next rig. This happened after about a year or two from the day I put it together.

Temperature reductions : MASSIVE

This is the best sub $30 cooler on the market today.

Just don't expect 30 degree temps on benchmarks like stated above. Pure BS right there. You can probably expect 35 degrees above ambient on full load in a case with good ventilation.
