It's very good, and you're pretty much guranteed 3.5GHz with a descent CPU

nice, but is it one of those push pins coolers or the bolt though ones? and where does is go over the cpu because in the picture I can't really figure out?

It comes with push-pins, which are crap. You can buy the retention bracket to screw it in for like an extra 4 dollars or something... definitely worth it. If you can't find it on newegg, let us know and we'll try to find the link for the bracket.

i thought the xigmatek rifle was a pain to install on my first build... got through it, but took some time.
