Love it. Keeps Processor Cool and Looks Cool :)

Summary: I chose looks over quiet operation. My case is open and this thing really looks BAD! Love it. It is actually fairly quiet until I render a Video Timeline or Encode a Video. It then takes off like an Engine. Since I usually step away from the computer while rendering, it does not bother me at all. Now I do not Game with it. Might be a different story. But works for me for editing. My Intel 4790K processor on overload reaches max temp of 70c and 29-33c on normal operation.

Summary: This cooler device is a "beast". The drawbacks are it's huge, and difficult to mount because There's no room for the hands to work in securing it to the mother board.However, it does the job efficiently once properly mounted.
Summary: This thing is huge and it is hard to hook up because its so big you cant get behind it to tighten the thing down. They do include a tool to assist you but it still takes some patience. It works well and is fairly quiet.
Around 40% heat reduction - be aware this thing is really big

Summary: This is a cooling monster but it's also huge so take that into account if you're going to order one. I have a Thermaltake Armor+ full tower case and an X58 Classified 4-way MOBO and there was zero extra clearance on both the board and the case. Had to pry off the top and bottom center plastic strips to shoehorn it in. That was easy though. Just grabbed the decorative strips on the CPU end and lifted up.
Summary: This cooler is amazing, but very large. Make sure your case has enough room for the cooler (166.5 mm) minimum, and the ram cannot be any taller than 50 mm. Outside of that, it is amazing, and the dust prevention capabilities sound like a great advance. I just installed it a few weeks ago, so I will not be able to truly tell how well the dust prevention works until I break it down in a few months to see how things look inside.

Summary: Excellent product. Using this with with my asus hero VII and i7 4790k. Case is Phanteks Full tower with windowed side. Thermal Paste being used is shin etsu 7921-5 which i highly recommend Installation is fairly difficult due to the size and placement of the heatsink but the instructions is very helpful and will guide you to a perfect install. You will see a gigantic decrease in temperatures when installed.
