Rated 5 out of 5 by Privatecustompcbuilder Very good value cooler
I have used several different after market coolers, all of which are branded makes - Zalman, Coolermaster, Thermaltake, Prolimatech, and now this one.
This cooler is pretty easy to fit, although it is always worth checking the orientation of the provided fan since the instructions illustrate a rather bemusing position. Placing the cooling intake fan right in front of the exhaust fan.......which means no airflow. Confusing that. But switch it 180 degrees and things are much better. Since that is the only "gripe" I have with it, I think 5 stars is warranted.
Build quality is fantastic, cooling performance is very good especially given the price. Highly recommended.....if you have the cash to burn then opt for a Prolimatech Megahalems cooler.....the very best I have ever used - this is a great second choice though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EmJay It's a piece of cake to fit, very quiet and has knocked about 10-15 degrees off the running temp of the CPU. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DMPhoto Easy to fit, Quiet Fan
Fitted 2 of these this week, very easy fan and cooler to install . A Little fiddly with the sticky pads (needed a sharp knife to do a good job) on the risers but a straight forward install. I Recommend you read the info for wind flow direction before fitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dsim Quiet efficient cooler
Quite easy to assemble and install, most fiddly task is the application of the thermal paste. All works as specified, though I haven't pushed it to any extreme. Seems to do a good job, and quietly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by davey Faultless product, but very large
Title says it all, great product, just ensure you can fit it in your case. I had to remove an internal case fan to get it to fit my reasonably large case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Graeme Simple, quiet and easy to fit cooler. Much better than any stock cooler that comes with your new shiny CPU
None, just take your time with the instructions that comes with it and your sorted
