Summary: So far, so good. I have had no overheating issues associated with my processor to date. This is a great product! I'm glad I put in a few extra bucks in the beginning to not have to replace the stock fan this far into the processor's lifetime.
Summary: I would give this a 5 star except that it was a pain to install. Hard to get to the screws to be able to attach to the motherboard. Had to pretty much have everything off the motherboard in order to be able to access the screws to attach.
Summary: This item never arrived. Contacted Amazon, who refunded the purchase price of the cooler. That's very GOOD service. Could not ask for any better. I did out source the purchase of it. It is a decent cooler. It is big and heavy. You have to use your brain to install it.
Summary: I have this totally new build and my first time buying an aftermarket CPU cooler. The thing I like best about the Cooler Master GeminII S524 is the pipes touch the CPU. I noticed the others don't do this. There may be some that do but I didn't see them. The fan is whisper quite.
Summary: This thing is HUGE, but it fits just fine in my Cooler Master 430. My only complaint is that, in my particular case, it is too large to allow a 120mm fan to be attached to the top vents, but that is not the fault of the cooler.
