Summary: I got this cooler on a haswell i7. After reading reviews on this, my expectations for its ability to be noiseless may have been too high. While it is not loud at all, I can still hear it very distinctly at over 5 meters away (I unplugged all other fans and hdd to test the sound). Installation for it was very straight forward and easy to understand with the included manual. Also, it comes with a lot of accessories should you need them.
Summary: good heatsink if you have the right motherboard. just watch for how close your ram slots and pcie slots are to your cpu
Pros: this is a big cooler that allows lots of airflow with the 2 fans and went together real easy
Cons: on my asus sabertooth x79 it went in good but its blocking some of my memory slots if u have memory with heat spreaders. have not tried a regular memory stick but it looks like it would fit but i would have to take the heatsink out. also blocks the pcie slot on it.
Excerpt: OK So I have under no circumstances observed my system go more than 45 deg C on air cooling. Def pro. I was making use of an old school Zalman 9500 from an old Am2 board and was just a couple of degrees higher. Cost per performance, ripoff. Size (gigantic) per overall performance...ripoff. This factor takes up half my complete atx board. Go Zalman or go residence. Will be selling soon.
Conclusion: Громоздкая и тяжёлая конструкция, хотя должен признать- тихая. Не во все корпуса влезет! Для высоких слотов памяти- проблема! Тут ещё надо подобрать хорошую охлаждающую пасту, а та что идёт в комплекте, средней паршивости. Тут конечно вес и размер говорят сами за себя....
Summary: Refroidit à merveille c'est certain mais difficile a installer même dans un grande tour gamer! Reste bruyant même avec la résistance fournie. Mais effectivement on peut lui faire confiance pour le refroidissement, en plein jeu (Crysis II) le processeur reste impassible coté température!
