Summary: This heat sink and the two fans attached to it are excellent for their cooling power, it has kept my cpu from going above 50 degrees C since I bought it and it is extremely silent. Installation was a little tough due to the size of the heat sink but the instructions are good and once it is installed you are past the hardest part. Highly recommend.
Works great, doesn't fit with all motherboard/ram configuations

Summary: First things first, this works great, cools well, etc. Everything you'd expect. Installation was as expected with an aftermarket heatsink (not as smooth as a stock heatsink, but not awful). The only thing I wanted to make note of, and the reason I'm writing this review, is because this heatsink does not fit with all motherboard/ram configurations.
Summary: I bought V6 for my new rig on 1150 socket,it fits fine on socket,keeps my 4770k stock at 25-35C at idle,but it was hard to install because of G.skill sniper series RAM,because there was not enough space for RAMs,but,of course I recommend this cooler.
Summary: Super loud compared to stock Intel i5-2500K cooler, very large and barely fits in a full tower ATX computer case. The weight of it kind of concerned me but that's what the back plate is for! Definitely took two people to install. The cord for the light is very awkwardly positioned right where one of the fans goes, so it was kind of sketchy to install the second fan.
Summary: this is a great product (untested), pros: comes with everything you see in the picture well build easy to remove and replace for upgrade fans Cons: on a mid size tower you may or may not have to leave your side panel off this cpu cooler did not fit with my asus sabertooth z77 mobo it cover one of my ram slots and the thermal armor from my mobo wouldn't work with the the heat pipes just check to make sure you will have room with your mobo and tower before you buy this...
Summary: This is a great cpu cooler. It will take a lot of space to install, but it looks great and performs well if you have the space. The fans are very easy to swap out compared to other coolers. My only complaint is how difficult it was to install this on the Mobo. You will need 2 people.
Summary: My CPU never has run cooler, this cooler dropped my CPU temp on average by 5-8 degrees Celsius. However, depending on your board layout may have to remove one of the cooler's fans as I did. The reason behind this is the product is so large it will overlap your memory dims, forcing you to either remove 1-2 dimms of memory or a fan from this cooler.
Summary: This aftermarket cooler gets the job done. im doing some minor OCing from 3.4Ghz to 4.2ghz so im never really pushing my amd 8320 8core processor to its limits. pros: great cooling! it basically creates an air vortex in my case that dissipates all the heat from my cpu.. i have it set up in a push pull set up so the air goes right out the back of my case. the cooler definitely surpassed my expectations, when i say it moves air, IT MOVES AIR.
