This cooler performs a lot better then I expected it to. It's relatively cheaper than most 3 pipe coolers I could find that had some solid reviews.

from completed build Nostalgia Build [ 2009 ]
I've been using it for 15 months and it's still going strong. The fan maxes out a little over 2,100 RPM's but it's actually quiet and keeps the CPU calm and cool. When it's idle the CPU temps are 32-40 C and when it's at 100% load it's 50-60 C.

from completed build mITX Mid-Range Gaming < $800
Easy install out of the box on a Ryzen 5 2600 AM4 socket. This was my first Ryzen build and I found that unlike Intel, Ryzen coolers don't have the benefit of 4-position orientation. Because of the side brackets on the motherboard, you can only fit tower coolers in two directions. Fortunately, this one mounts on the sides so it faces front-to-back for better airflow (at least, in my case).
My main gripe is that the protective sticky paper on the bottom of the heatsink did not peel off cleanly. There was a noticeable amount of goo left on the pipes. If I had more patience I'd have used Goo Gone, then rubbing alcohol to clean off the goo gone. Instead I just rubbed the heck out of it with rubbing alcohol on paper towels and tried to scrape off as much as I could. Not completely clean but apparently good enough, it's keeping my CPU very cool.
Installation note: you are going to feel like you're breaking your motherboard in half getting this thing on. It's really, really, really tight. But keeps my CPU really cool. Unless you're going to overclock you don't NEED an aftermarket cooler, but in an mITX build I wanted as much cooling and airflow as possible. For $19.99 this was a no-brainer.
