      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Brilliant, this has won awards, it keeps your CPU cool, JOB DONE!

      Keeping your CPU cool within a computer is absolutely essential. Even more so if you are planning to over-clock, or if you use CPU intensive applications or games. Yes, the airflow of you case will have a dramatic effect on your CPU temperatures, but so will your CPU heatsink/Fan itself.

      There are plenty of CPU coolers on the market, some of them blow around warm air and are pretty useless, some of them are really noisy things that just annoy.

      However i`m glad to say, that this is neither.
      The OCZ Vendetta 2 ( Socket 754, Socket 775, Socket 939, Socket AM2, and Socket 1366 with bracket ) sits like a giant sky scraper on top of your CPU. This is a big heatsink we`re talking about here, the thing holds an ultra quiet 120mm fan!!

      The heatsink itself comprises of 3 copper pipes that are in direct contact with the CPU which pass the heat up to the micro-configuration of the stacked aluminium fins which are grooved and shaped for optimum heat dissipation, especially with the aforementioned 120mm fan.

      Although a couple of years old, this is still one of the better heatsinks out there.

      I use mine on my overclocked Q6700 and compared to a stock cooler i`m getting about 10c-15c cooler temps when idle and under load.

      My only criticisms with this product, would be that the fan can be a bit tricky to get on to the heatsink at first as it uses low noise rubber studs, and the Intel Push Pin system for connecting to the motherboard.
