Easy to put together, silent, and it works perfectly for cooling down my i5-4690K.
This cooler was pretty easy to install, but the fans (could be a better color imo). On the bright side though it's really silent.
Gets the job done. High quality
This Cooler is FANTASTIC! It fits AMD and Intel chipsets and has 3 different cable settings for speed/sound purposes. I have one front fan on silent speed (medium setting) and the back on dead quiet (slowest) - and it still sucks all the heat out of my OC 4.6GHz 7700K! Why bother with overpriced, noisy liquid cooling!?
AMD users, especially those with an FM2 or AM3 socket, please be warned: on some motherboards, the default configuration of this thing's bracket will place it perpendicular to your front and rear fans, in a wholely sub-optimal location for airflow. A mounting bracket to fix this is available for free here, but you'll still need to wait for shipping, and it's overall a bit of a hassle; I'd recommend picking a more recent cooler.
With that out of the way, as long as you can get this thing oriented properly, it's a perfectly adequate heatsink. Secufirm mounts are miles easier to deal with than whatever your motherboard is currently sticking in there, and much more stable. Color pallette is a bit garish to some, but the fans are very easy to replace. RAM clearance wasn't an issue for me on the Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN, but your mileage may vary.
What can I say about this wonderful heat sink...
I actually purchased this cooler back in May 2010 due to the great cooling performance and low noise which was needed for a HTPC Silverstone LC13 build and it has been used on 2 more builds including my current one!
gets the job done, quietly if need be. otherwise, jet engine.
