I hated mine. If you bough one when this CPU was new it was probably a good purchase but if you bought one 3-4 years ago you missed out on much better coolers like I did.
The fact that it still works well enough on a CPU of the era shouldn't surprise anyone though, air coolers don't break. CLCs do.


The 212 is probably something I will always keep around though...until there's just no modern socket it fits that is. I used mine until I got my 4790k where it started to really show it's limits but on my 4690k I managed 5Ghz with the little guy. Not too bad.
