Clarification Request
I see a SLEEVE BEARING FAN.

I thought folk avoided those due to low life spans. Why not forget that and use the AMD supplied unit?

Looks good 'as is' and while it may have a sleeve

bearing fan on the CPU HS Fan ...it's a highly rated unit for CPU heat dissipation. Bottom line, replacement fans are plentiful, inexpensive, readily available and easy to replace. Getting a 10-20c CPU temp reduction over the stock cooler is very much worth $20 to me.

Let us know how it works out
