    so I have had this thing in my house for like 5 weeks and finally installed it today.


    As much of a PITA as I had feared. Special motherboard bolts to put the 'heat sink' at just the right height for the special bolts/springs to seat the thing on the AMD FX 8350 ( box I built 3 years ago ). No way to install the special backplate without removing the motherboard from the case - so my box is going commando with no backplate on the 'chip fan' - yeehah!

    anyways this was not a simple install. I did the push/pull install. Fancy talk for using the longer screws and placing the radiator/fan behing the existing fan.

    end result is I am pleased to report it actually works. Nothing crazy but things that were causing my box to overheat shows the chip temperature below the 65 degree warning threshold. So yeah it works but you will have a custom box when the installation is complete
