Rated 3 out of 5 by Super12 Effective but loud
This cooler is very bulky and will provide cooling on par with low end liquid cooling setups which is excellent, however it is very tedious to fit when in some cases such as the Zalman z9+, it may be easier to fit outside the case if you can manage to screw in the motherboard with this cooler attached.
The cooling it provides is excellent and will keep your computer cold at load and reasonable clocks. With this cooler i managed to reach a stable 5.2ghz on an AMD fx 9370 however it was very close to the limits and I don't recommend extreme clocks like that on air cooling.
This cooler is very loud due to the included fans but if you are just cooling non overclocked CPUs (the AMD FX-9370 and 9590 are overclocked from factory) you could provide sufficient cooling at load with no fans connected by passive cooling, however instead you can get 140mm pressure optimized fans that will work well with this cooler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris92 Exceeding expectations!
Had this delivered today and must say I'm impressed! Cpu never goes above 31c idle with I7 4770k @ 4.4Ghz. Haven't fully stress tested it yet though but can already see significant improvement compared to the intel stock cooler, especially whilst gaming.
Only downside is that the instructions really are ridiculously poor, some intuitive is needed (or just youtube an installation vid).
