Rated 5 out of 5 by punkbill A silent powerhouse of a cooler
I've managed to overclock my 4960K to 4.6 GHz using this cooler, my maximum temp never exceeds 60c and it's whisper quite.
I would recommend getting help with the installation as it would be muh smoother with a second pair of hands.

Little bit hard to install. But very quiet cooler, and nice. I have a I 5 4690K CPU in CM HAF case. Temerature is 27-30 C/ 39-46 C/ not overlocked. Recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jackie277 Good but...
It is not silent. Some of the reviews mislead me that the cooler is silent! It is quiet compared to other coolers, but I would not buy it again. I now ordered Noctua fans from Amazon, hopefully they will do better than the original be-quiet fan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Foolhardymax Great product but price was not the lowest.
Looks great, performs well and is very silent. Scan's price
could have been lower however the delivary was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweatybrety Good temperatures but tricky to fit
Keeps my AMD 8350 at 31 while idle and 45 when under load. A little tricky to fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeX Keeps its cool under load!
Looks good and does a great job of keeping your CPU cool no matter what the load. Fan seems to be quite and the CPU temperatures are kept very low, even when over clocking.
A little tricky to fit due to the size but seems nice and secure once done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GlennB Performs well, silently
Really happy I opted for the be quiet! Dark Rock CPU cooler over others I was considering. It's really nicely designed and packaged and performs well -- keeping my CPU at 30-40 degrees with absolutely no noise at all.
If you're using a mini-itx board (as I am), then -depending upon the board layout- the chances are you'll need low profile RAM and a PCI-e riser (if you want to use PCI-e of course). I've got a Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WIFI MB and the fan covers the PCI-e and RAM sockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeckulz What can I really say
Ive had this cooler going for 18 months now.
Today its 24 degrees c outside, 28 degrees in my house, and core temp is telling me my OC'd 2500k (4.8 ghz) is sat idling (with firefox, itunes, skype and steam) at 43 degrees c.
I can barely hear it (plugged in by PWM).
Even better VFM
