Rated 5 out of 5 by Dunckx Efficient and quiet
On my i7 4770S it spins around 725-750rpm (according to Asus Thermal Radar) with the CPU drawing 65W and all cores at a temperature of ca. 60-65C as measured by Core Temp 1.0 RC6.
You'll need low profile memory to clear the heatsink fins, thanks to Lee at Scan for that piece of priceless pre-sales advice!

If you need blissful silence and low CPU temps, give the Shadow Rock a try. I'm using it to cool an i5 4570 and the silence is eerie...
Beautifully made, easy to install and delivered very quickly by Scan. I've built many computers over the years, and tried lots of different coolers, none of which have performed as well as the be Quiet! Shadow Rock.
Highly recommended if you're building a quiet PC.
