Rated 4 out of 5 by pwal Great little cooler but may not fit all ITX boards
This is a great cooler for the money, looks great, well packaged pretty quiet until on max setting, and is way better cooler than stock, However.....
The only problem I had with it was fitting. The actual brackets for intel were pretty easy to fit, its just that the actual heatsink would not fit my motherboard. I was using an MSI Z77ia-E53 ITX motherboard and it would only go on one way around, however when doing this, there was still a capacitor near the pci express slot that could not be cleared by the heatsink.
I managed to bend a couple of the fins sufficiently to clear this, but this was not ideal.
For this reason I have given it a 4 instead of a 5 star. If you have a micro atx mobo or bigger then im sure you wouldnt have a problem fitting, but I would imagine most people who are looking at this like me want it for an ITX mobo, so just be aware this may not fit your ITX mobo without some modification.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Trbandit Good Quality but Poor ITX RAM Compatibility
Good cooling and a sturdy build quality though one MAJOR issue.
It DOES NOT clear the first RAM slot (even low profile) on Mini-ITX form factor motherboards....in this instance the Gigabyte A88X-WiFi Mini-ITX.
Would be more suited to a low profile Mirco-ATX build with greater space availability
