it definitely does.
it doesn't have those aweful push clips though.
 
It definantly does look like an Intel Stock heatsink, however it looks far better built. I'd like to see performance tests on this cooler. It'd made a great stock cooler replacement.

I upvoted my answer as a test. Currently trying to troubleshoot this problem.
 
Wow, "Nitrogen"... it sure must cool well.

Is that a proprietary fan?

I really do hate the Intel cooler though. Perhaps I'm an idiot but I destroyed it trying to REMOVE the cooler when building my sister a PC (and I've built a lot of PC's). So it looks like a nice way to mount this new cooler (screw down).

My concern is the PRICE. I wonder how well it will do in terms of cooling/noise for that price. I know many don't care but if I could get quieter for just $10 more then I'd do that instead. Obviously it's for small form factors and cooler CPU's, but it's still noise to reduce noise where possible (especially for a small PC on the desktop right in front of you).

Enjoy dusting it.

Reminds me of a Zallman flower heatsink I had on my P4. The closely spaced fins trapped dust, which had to be cleaned out twice/year or else the CPU would overheat.

Of course, this will go on lower-TDP CPUs, probably requiring less airflow.
