Doesn't look like that's compatible with the AMD Phenom II X4...

Eh I'm thinking just a few degrees.
Don't expect it to drop like 20 degrees.
I'm thinking maybe 5-10 degrees.

For a $100 heatsink? :\

I expected a more dramatic decrease.

Now don't take my word for it, I'm not too experienced.
Wait until someone else confirms or gives proper numbers, but I think that is about right.
10 degrees Celsius is pretty big.
