Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave123 Large fanless heatsink
The first thing to note, this heatsink is very very large. Before fitting check what it covers and fit that first. In my usage the heatsink covers the memory slots so I needed to insert them first.
Installation is not the easiest, the four pillars are fitted first, then the heatsink fitted to these, however the heatsink does move around until you have two of the screws in place. There is no clear idea when the screws are tight enough either.
When fitted though it is beautiful and it works very well. My CPU, (Intel 5) does not get above 35C and it is absolutely silent.
In summary, takes a bit of fitting but an excellent heatsink and I would fit this again in my next PC I build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Montin Large and silent
Not used a CPU with no fan before so was concerned about this item. I ran a CPU burn test with no fans blowing on an Intel i7-4790 @ 3.60 GHz. I managed to push the temperature up to 87.5c. Normally it runs well below 60c even whilst gaming.
The cooler is large. It may cover the first GPU slot on your MB. It's high/tall so maybe fitting it into the case could be a problem and you need to be careful with ram. I had to get some low profile ram to fit under this. But if your after making your pc quiet, can fit this monster in your case and don't mind the cost. Then go for it. I certainly would be happy to buy this again and have no wish to ever use a CPU fan cooler again! I hope this helps.

I have this on an i7 4770K, and even under load the CPU does not get beyond 65°C
Absolutely exceptional performance, and ridiculously huge... Beautifully made.
May cause an issue with slot access on some motherboards, you may wish to review that first (my x16 slot is pretty tight, but just fits)
