Summary: Sp far, I have not had the cooler installed long enough to give it a proper review, but from what I have seen of it, my CPU stays very cool, and doesn't even budge at the games I've played on max settings. Very solid construction, and the install was very easy too. Would definitely recommend for any gaming build.

Summary: I provided my son the means to soup up his computer via Nvidia high performance video cards and other devices which require additional cooling. The cooling provided by this CPU cooler also allows for the other fans to cool the other cards without the burden of the heat from the CPU. Does and excellent job and is easy to install.
Summary: This beast keeps my cpu cool while overclocking. The only draw back I have is that it is so large I had to take the fan I bought for the side of the case off because the unit almost touches the case.
Summary: It's huge. But if you got a full tower Then it Shouldn't be a problem for you. The 6 pipes on each side really keep it running nice and smooth. Overall it's probably the best one you'll find with a good price.
Summary: I install like the manual said every thing ok, after 6 months I noticed a litle noise in the fan so I checked and I saw a broked screw, thx God my I7 still alive, i will fix making a new screw in the future. Thermalmake our compure are not toys, so please make the things with the best quality snd try not to save some dollar for your pocket making bad quality stuff.
Summary: Finished installing this a little while ago, and feel compelled to share. This fan is NOT for newbies! If you have not built a machine before, you might end up asking for help. My biggest gripe is, because of the placement of the CPU fan plug on my machine, I was not able to have this unit push air out the top of the case.
Summary: Although i'm sure that this is a very good and effective heat sink for any performance nut, one thing you need to absolutely, positively make sure that this device will fit well in your computer case. Honestly i think this product was intended for full sized and 4x4 cases only. Amazon falls to give dimensions on just how big this product really is and unless you take the time to venture to other sites and find one not giving them in metric units you'll see that this heat...
