Rated 4 out of 5 by Dezza Greater cooler but very large.
A lovely quality cooler, very quiet and keeps my skylake chip nice and cool.
The size of it is mad though, so it takes up a dimm slot and nearly touches the edge of cover to the side of my atx case. This is mainly due to the huge plastic case for the fan, rather than the heatsink itself.
Very simple to install, the plastic raisers that you stick on look a bit flimsy/fiddley.
Applying the thermal pasta along the three pipes was different to how i had applied paste on previous builds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PaulG1983 Cool, quiet, and very, very large!
I bought one of these from scan in December-2015, paying about £25 inc. VAT. Its cooling an i7-4790K CPU.
It's very quiet and installation is fairly straightforward, by my WORD this is a large CPU-cooler. The ATX case that it was installed in had an "air chute" directed over the CPU fan, and I had to saw this off to allow me to put the case panel back on.
I think its a great product, but I'd be sure to double-check dimensions to ensure it will fit nicely in your case before buying, as I nearly came unstuck!

Rated 5 out of 5 HUGE Cooler!
This thing almost didn't fit in my case, so make sure to check dimensions - this beast is huge! However build quality is solid, and the cooler looks the dogs danglers too! Keeps CPU ultra cool under load (i7 2600K, gaming around 40C~50C) and comes with a good fan, which is replaceable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuK00 Great Cooler
very good cooler.reduced my cpu temps by at least 10% very good design and well made.only downside is make sure you can fit it inside your case as with it being quite big. fastens down on the cpu very good and easy to fit.Could Do with more paste though as you don't get much with it, apart from that I recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Len88 Great product, works well
The only thing I had a slight problem was with the lack of compound that was supplied. I did not think it was enough. Fortunately I had some in stock to make up the short fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Simon633 Very good value
I bought this cooler while my more expensive cooler was being fixed, so this was meant just to tied my over until my bigger cooler came back, but i must say that the cpu heat was kept well under control by this cheaper cooler, so cheaper it might be be, but less effective its not, great value for the money

Rated 5 out of 5 It's huge. Seriously
Yeah, can't stress that enough. Other people have mentioned it, but this thing is seriously big. Largest cooler I've ever installed out of 6 builds.
I bought a midi case from Scan too. Mostly because it had side, front and top fan mounts. There were some maxi cases which had the same layout, but were a good £80 more.
Performance wise, my 5820k (hyper threaded hex core) idles just below 30c and barely hits 50c after a few hours of rendering/Delphi compiling. I've got 5x 120mm fans blowing in the case too so there's a lot of airflow. Overall it barely hums. The fan it comes with is alright but I'll definitely change it and up the airflow in a couple of years.
The mounting instructions are pretty simple to follow, but you do need to FOLLOW them. Don't assume you can figure it out as it comes with Intel and AMD brackets, each requiring different mounts and screw connectors. Once you've figured it out it's as simple to fit as any other cooler. There is a (pathetically) small amount of thermal paste supplied. It's enough for an adequate coating, but you really need to be careful not to waste any and scrape every little bit out. That's if you don't have any paste hanging around... I didn't, unusually.
Do not cheap out on chassis with this. Get a maxi case. If it doesn't fit in your house, buy a bigger house. I got a mid and, while it fits, it simply isn't big enough.
