Excellent! Will never use another brand CPU cooler for a high end air solution! Small but powerful!

Excellent. Configurable, with top mount 120mm fan removable for use in small cases (Y-Split Cable and Low-Noise Adapters included). I had room enough in Node 605 to use both fans.

Wish I could give it 10 stars.

Was getting 65°C with Intel stock cooler while playing FIFA 16, and changed the CPU cooler to Noctua NH-L12 and now I am getting 23°C while playing the same game. Don't think I need to add anything more.

VERY pleased with this cooler. I had it on my 6600k OC'd at 4.4GHz with a Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 3000 RPM fan and it kept it nice and cool. However, it can only handle my 6700k at factory clock speeds.

Great cooler, quite compact. Very silent, almost inaudible. It is compatible with the rest of my hardware, but not in all 4 orientations.

Never goes over 45 Celsius even in prolong gaming load. No idea what kind of sorcery is that.
