|MehdiAnis||Will it work with AMD FX 8-Core CPU?|

I've extracted some results From Frostytech's review of the 212 EVO. [frostytech.com]
Note that even the monster Noctua NH-D14 at $80.99 [newegg.com] performs only 1.6°C better for $50 more.
Enjoy your build.

This thing is basically a stock replacement. It's louder and doesn't cool as well as an 8 year old stock intel C2D cooler. (though the tiny coolers intel bundles with 1155's are barely adequate).
It certainly won't come anywhere close to a tower cooler, even a smaller tower cooler like a CM TX3. Just because it's cheap doesn't make it worth the trouble of using. If you are looking for lower temps and/or lower noise spend a couple extra bucks on a modern design.
for $15 you can get a Dynatron G950 without a rebate hassle.
or plenty of rocketfish rebranded TX3 on ebay.

Yes, adhesive not better than thermal compound, just for use where there is no other means to mechanically mount a cooler. Typical use is on motherboards when, say, Northbridge, voltage regulator, brand-X ethernet chips, etc, overheat in use.
TIP: Try adding an almost equal amount of Arctic Silver 5 to your thermal adhesive mixture if you think you'll ever need to remove your heat sink. It should adhere almost as well, but make it possible to remove your heat sink at a later date without the resources of a machine shop and chemistry lab.
· Note: AM2/AM2+/AM3/ AM3+ and FM1/FM2 socket dimensions are the same. The only difference in these sockets is the actual CPU itself. Not the cooler mounting.
All of the heatsinks on Newegg that specifically claim FM2 compatibility [newegg.com] seem to be overkill for a 65W A10. I've always wanted to try the low profile COOLER MASTER GeminII M4 [newegg.com].

|dale_nx26||Does this work with LGA 775 (yea, I'm old school)? I broke a pin on the stock HSF so I'm worried the dissipation is not optimal.|

UPDATE: Now thinking you meant that as kind of a joke in response to statement you can only use this cooler with 1155/56 CPUs. K, got it. Just some people won't know any better and might assume that's what's best to use.

|npolite||Just to ask in case I missed anything in the legal terms. If I submitted one from February 3rd, I can still submit this rebate for an additional 2, correct?|

|adamant||I finally got my MX-2 thermal paste rebate. I was surprised that they were handing out VISA GCs with $10.99 loaded on them.|

|chong67||One thing I hate is the push and turn PIN. They always get mess up and I just have to throw it away. This include Intel!|
