The push pins do a decent job. I would recommend getting the bracket kit.

I used the push pins for a while. When I switched over to the bracket, my temps dropped about 3-6C. It's still a cheap cooler and even with purchasing the bracket separate, it is a lot cheaper than the coolers it is compared too.

If you're gonna spend $65 dollars on a cooler you may as well get a TRUE.

It was in response to the $65 cooler up at the top. $10 isn't a huge difference. I should have quoted though.

Ah, I'm sorry. The Xigmatek should cost him around $45 total for the heatsink, fan and the bracket. I still personally prefer it over the majority of heatsinks.

You don't need to buy a fan and back plate separately. This includes one: XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V and it's only $39.99.
