from completed build Exiguous

To paraphrase the B. Kliban rule: Never install a heatsink bigger than your head. This heatsink very nearly violates that rule.

To be honest, I picked this out rather dumbly. I did a search for best-rated coolers with a very quiet fan (that weren't water-based), and this kept turning up, so I grabbed it. I didn't really understand how zarking massive it was until it arrived. With the fans attached, it has a mass of over one kilo.

They tried to be nice and included a long-shaft screwdriver for attaching the towers to the mounting bracket. However, in practice, it's only slightly better than the hex drivers included with Ikea furniture -- it's very tricky overcoming the spring compression and getting the screws to finally grab on to the posts.

The cables from the fans are a bit on the short side, with one of them just barely making it to the second CPU fan header. I tried rotating how the fan was mounted, but you can't remove the brackets from the fans without possibly breaking something.
