Summary: Recently got one of these to cool my i5 4670k and it works brilliantly.
it runs incredibly quiet and the price is very good for the cooling performance.
my temperatures at stock clock speeds are great, Idle - 27-29C ... Full Load - 52C
i haven't overclocked my CPU yet but will definitely be trying at a later date.
Summary: What a fantastic cooler. It's rather large, but does a fantastic job. My 3570K idles at about 29-32 and under load (prime95) it's around 60C when running at 4.2GHz.
Fan is also silent and I cannot hear it, even at load. Only problem with this is that it was a little tricky to install and instructions were not great. But once installed, it's great.
Summary: Can only sign under other reviews here. Very well packaged product, easy to follow instructions and it does the job. FX-8320 running at 4 GHz, idling about 27C. Prime95 gets it to about 65C after 20 mins or so which for a fan in this price range is quite impressive. At 1500 RPM you can definitely hear the fan but it is not noisy. I had 800RPM Noctua before so I was pleased that it isn't much louder.
Summary: Before buying this, my i5 2500k was running at 60c + @ 3.4ghz after an hour on BF3 on the stock cooler. Now with this installed and with a 2nd fan on, (the 2nd fan covers the nearest ram slot to the processor, so be careful about that) it is overclocked to 4.4ghz and runs at 50c after about an hour on BF3.
As usual OCUK provided their exceptional service, which is why I continue to buy form them time and time again.
Summary: Bought this as my 6 year old Arctic cooler pro 64 was on it's last legs, my x6 1090t was hitting 70C ;s.
Packaging is very professional for the price, you get more than enough parts in the box + extra for an additional fan if wanted.
Installation was easy (AM3 socket) for me, can't comment on the intel installation. Took no less than 10 minutes plus i added a 2nd fan on the other side.
Summary: This is a good cooler for the price. I can't tell you whether it's any better than the other million tower coolers on the market that look exactly identical to this one, but here are some numbers for my rig:
i7-3770K (Ivy Bridge) overclocked to 4.2GHz at 1.05V
Running Intel Burn Test (extreme mode) gives a peak temperature of 80*C and an average 75*C when the room temperature is 30*C (typical of Maltese summer).
Summary: amazing cooler for the price more than capable cooling my OC'd 4.4GHZ I5 gave it 4 stars because of the installation was a bit more fiddly than my other Noctua heat sink still very good for the price.
Summary: This was the first non-stock cooler and I fitted and I done it quite easily using video tutorials etc. The performance of this is great on my i3 2100. idle is 20-30 and 100% load is 35-40.
Summary: This is by far the best bang for your buck CPU cooler on the market. It is awesome for overclocking. It works for both Intel and AMD CPUs which is great. With this I got a i5 2500k to 4.8GHZ and it hits no more than 45-50 degrees Celsius under full load.
