Excerpt: Just installed with new PC into 1150 socket. Requires some patience but not too bad of an install given the size. I suggest looking at some YouTube videos prior to installation to get an idea of what to do. You may also have an easier time if you remove your motherboard from the case.
Excerpt: Very easy to install. Just the right size to fit in case. Not to big not to small excellent cooling much better than stock fan and you can always add a 2nd fan and increase cooling.Also great price.
Excerpt: Runs my amd cpu 30c cooler than the stock cooler under 100% load, and it is much quieter. Just make sure it fits your case. It just barely cleared the side panel in my case, and the panel had to be forced on to fit in a friends case.
Excerpt: I purchased an AMD FX-8350 CPU a couple months ago with no intention of upgrading from the stock cooler, however I quickly discovered that the noise of the stock cooler was virtually intolerable when the system was under load (in my case when I was trying to record gameplay).
Summary: Mounted atop the second baddest Intel Processor, a 6 Core, driving an ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition loaded with 64Gb RAM and a 6Gb EVGA NVIDIA card, I am not overclocked, but my processor never sees more than 110 degrees, and usually hovers around 103, both of which is great.
Summary: I have a 4790k and was using the stock cooler.(not overclocking) My temps while 3D rendering where getting close to 100C. Installed this cooler this morning and now while rendering and stress testing it will not go above 63C. VERY VERY much worth the 35 bucks.
