Summary: I installed this air cooler on the AMD FX8350 CPU since the stock fan was driving me crazy with the loud noise never could understand why and the room temperature was always below 25C. Nevertheless when I took out the stock fan I found a layer of dust under the fan preventing air from following through the fins of the cooler.
Summary: First off, this thing is HUGE. Take the measurements seriously. Installation was a breeze. Squeeze out the included thermal compound on your CPU, install the brackets to hold it to your motherboard, plug in the fans (one single plug) and the lights (a separate plug - nice if you don't want the lights just leave that one unplugged), and fire up your system. The two fan system is designed for one to pull air into the cooler, and the other one pulls air out of the cooler.
Summary: I am one of those buyers of this product who had a ASUS LGA 1156/ Intel H55/ DDR3 2133OC- mATX Motherboard P7H55-M Pro and an 1156 CPU configuration. I am running an Intel I7-950 CPU at normal clocking. It was overheating with the stock fan, running at anywhere from 93-96 C. on a normal day.
Summary: I have had this cooler on an AMD FX 8350 for almost a year now and it has kept it cool even in extended gaming sessions. I have a large case that it fits in with 1/2 inch of clearance, so this is not the solution for a less than large case. Check the dimensions before you get it, but if you have the room, I would highly recommend.
Amazing, but DOES NOT Fit with all types of RAM and most PC Cases

Summary: I finally got around to purchasing this cooling unit for my new beast of a Machine, My new PC. I was very hesitant to buy the V6 because of some of the reviews saying that it blocks certain RAM access on some MB and might not fit inside of Mid-Tower case. So I went to the store to see if this would happen with my MB, which is the MSI Z77A-G45 Gaming.
Keeps your CPU nice and cool! Looks awesome as well.

Summary: I have tested this cooler on two processors. 1. An AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ 2.2GHz 90Watt processor Idle: ~33C, load: ~43C 2. An AMD Athlon II X4 600e 2.2GHz 45Watt processor (OCed to 3.0GHz @ 1.212xV -- +0.012xV overvolted past rated max) Idle: ~27C, load: ~37C The cooler fans are very quiet. You can't hear them at all if you have any case fans (I have a HAF 912 Advanced with 3 case fans inside).
Summary: this thing is HUGE. i love it! pros: cool design Very big and spacious, good for anything keeps cold. 2 fans is more than enough. cons: VERY BIG. i have a HUGE case, but it BARELY fits.like nano meters close.
