I have a Gigabyte G-Power II Pro and have had it on 4 different CPU, a x2 5200 windsor(90nm tech)OC'ed to 2974mhz, a e8400 OC'ed as high as 4275mhz(never got above 62'c), zeon 3220 OC'ed at 3600mhz(around same temps as the 8400), and now a q9650 at 3812 mhz(idle around 30'c, full load from 1 hour OCCT linpack run around 70'c). I bought this cooler before I knew much about computer hardware, and have been quite pleased with it's performance.
