It's a decent cooler but nowhere near the best... It's highly limited by it's small size and 92mm fan... certainly not a cooler you want to be using if you want to overclock quads using high voltages

Good alternatives that will perform quite a bit better (if you want to replace it) are the Tuniq Tower, Xigmatek HDT-S1283, and OCZ Vendetta 2... all of these are in the $30-45(+shipping) range

If you want to go all out, the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme (T.R.U.E) is possibly the best out there... it can be had for about $55(+shipping)... you will have to supply your own 120mm fan however
