Summary: Up and running! Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.3GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video LG WH16NS40 Blueray Rewriter 16X Speed Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower EVGA80 PLUS GOLD 850W Fully Modular...
Pros: Fit's 2011-v3 without using the supplied back-plate. Has hardware for both AMD and Intel installation included. Keeps the beast cool. Very tall, check the manufacturer's website for motherboard compatibility. Buy a wide case.
Cons: The instructions don't include directions for the 2011-v3 socket installation, but does have the hardware to do it. If you can't figure it out, maybe you shouldn't be building your own PC.

Summary: Unbelievable. For my probably 20th personal computer I've built for myself (100s and 100s for others) I've never seen an air cooler like this, and I've tried so many, copper, nickel/copper, water, high line cheaper the full gauntlet and this is hands down the best I've ever experienced.
Summary: Super easy to install, took less than 10 minutes before I was up and running.
Pros: I recently put a new computer system together with Asus X99A along with a 5820K being cooled with Cooler Master Seidon 120V. My temperatures were always somewhat high and OCing was diffuclt as stability was impacted. Yes I did re-apply the artic silver after cleaning the CPU and cooler multiple t...

Summary: I've built a few PCs in my time and this fan was perhaps the easiest I have ever installed and then kinda re-installed.(BTW - It was my fault) ~ I built my own PC and this fan had been suggested as a good companion piece for the CPU I was considering.

Summary: Best heat sink for me and my desktop computer running Intel Core i7-3770K. This keeps my processor running cool all them time and I done had this in my desktop computer since April of 2014 and just now getting to write a review about it and have not had any problems with Noctua NH-U14S.
Summary: If you can fit this in your case, I'd say you should get it. :)
Pros: Pardon the silly DBZ joke. It's a big heatsink. It's also a wonderful heatsink. Running the 5820k i7 @ 4Ghz/1.1Vcore.. barely got over 40c playing Tomb Raider. The sink was buffed and mirrored (looked great), and I have no problems at all. Very easy to mount as well.
Cons: It's big? Also, the thermalpaste tube didn't contain much material. Enough for the job, but I had none left over. (may have just been an unlucky tube)
Summary: Installed on an Intel i5-4690 on the ASUS H97 Pro Gamer motherboard in a Phanteks Enthoo Pro case. There is more than enough room in this case for this cooler. Installation is simple. The hardest part is cleaning off the old thermal compound off the cpu.
Pros: Lowered temps from 70c to 50c on an i5-4690 during heavy gaming over the stock Intel cooler. Game is the current early-access game "Seven Days to Die". Idle temperature is 29c. Room temperature at the time was 22c. The 140mm fan supplied with the cooler does the job. The slim look of the heatsink...
Summary: Very Very happy with my purchase, but if Noctura if to ever offer black or red fans, I would buy it in a heartbeat.
Pros: -Instructions were very helpful -Parts galore, they really want to make sure you get everything right in the building process -Have this cooling my i7-4790k, and all 4 cores idle around 33-36c -Super quiet, even if I turn off the smart fan system from the motherboard, the extra noise is negligibl...
Cons: It's Brown :(, Please Noctura make it black or red Q_Q
Pros: This heatsink/cooler is very very quiet. Even under the heaviest loads on an i5-4690K it keeps the CPU cool without making more than a faint whirring. It supports both Intel and AMD sockets and has two different orientations so you can make it eject the hot air up/down/front/back depending on you...
Cons: Fits nicely in my machine, but like all high performance coolers it takes up a lot of space. After I installed the cooler I later installed an SSD into the M.2 slot on my MSI Z97 Gaming 5 MB, and it required some finesse to get at the M.2 slot because the cooler is in the way. Also, I'd rather ha...
