In summary: This cooler offers absolutely fantastic cooling performance, however the difficulty of installing it made me wish I had gone for something else (will explain this in more detail later).

Pros:
-One of the best air coolers you can get, at any price
-Runs completely silent on idle, increasing to a gentle breeze at full load.
-Since the heatsink is so large it benefits from extra airflow generated by the back/top case fans.
-Best Price/Performance ratio (cooling and noise included)

Cons:
- The largest CPU cooler I've ever seen. Barely fits in most mid tower cases. It fits in my Cooler Master Elite 430 but the fan clip does scrap the side panel when attaching/removing.
- The size of the heatsink means that you cannot access any of the motherboard slots below it without removing the heatsink, e.g. fan slots. Also one of the top fans had to be removed (the top rear) due to the size of this thing.
- Installation is DIFFICULT. This is by far my biggest issue with the cooler. Admittedly this was the first Socket 1150 cooler I've had to install, but I have had experience other CPU coolers.
- If I could sum up my experience with installing the cooler, I would describe it as one of the worst experiences I've ever had in system building. Firstly, the instructions are hard to follow, and you have to spend a good 10-20 minutes just finding out which screws, nuts, washers and other parts you need for your particular socket. Then putting the parts together is tricky. Attaching the mounting plate to your motherboard will most probably require you to remove the entire motherboard and all its connections (unless you don't mind not putting in the washers, which could cause damage to your motherboard in the long term).

Verified Purchase
Initially I swapped from a stock Intel cooler (i5 2500K) and got myself a Corsair H80i water cooling setup. That was OK but after initially thinking it was quiet, I decided to return it and try out this HR-02 Macho.

I guess it would be more straightforward to install with the motherboard removed, but I was able to access the back of the board while it was in the case. With a bit of patience and some swearing, I had installed in about 20 minutes. It's quite fiddly to locate the screws and I found it easier to do the one which is accessed down through the heatsink first.

I've got two 140mm corsair fans in the front of the case, drawing air in towards the Thermalright fan, which is blowing through the heatsink towards the back of the case. At the back of the case I have another Corsair 120mm fan blowing out the warm air. It's close enough to the heatsink to be helping to suck the air through the heatsink too.

The fans at idle are all set to be running at about 550rpm so as you can imagine they're pretty much silent. At full speed the HR-02 fan become audible but in no way is it noticable.

I've run Prime95 for about 45 minutes and the core temps never went about 52 degrees. A few days earlier I'd done the same test with the stock cooler and it was hitting 95 degrees. Even the H80i was giving around 62 degrees.

I've done everything I can with stress testing to hit higher temperatures but it's not happening!

A word of warning, it's huge! I have a Corsair 300R case and an Asus P8Z77-V LX motherboard. To get this item to fit I've had to move my two ram sticks to slots 2 and 4 from 1 and 3. So if ever I want add more RAM I'll be struggling. My RAM is HyperX Beast with the heatinks, so I'm not sure if I removed those heatsinks it would fit better. Hope that makes sense!

All in all a brilliant piece of kit though and, in my opinion, far superior to the H80i water cooling.

After a good deal of research into alternatives I purchased this to provide silent cooling for the AMD 8350 CPU - which it does with regular loads, keeping temperatures in the 30s. When running all 8 CPU cores under heavy load for extended periods, the 8350 puts out lots of heat, but the Macho keeps temperatures safely below 65C, provided the case fan is turned up to maximum to extract the warm air.

The installation instructions could have been much better, but with the help of a YouTube video fitting it was not too tricky or time-consuming - the included long magnetic screwdriver is indispensable - though you will need to remove the motherboard from the case.

It is big though! I've got about 5mm clearance on the height and, even though the fins are off-centre in an attempt to avoid blocking the RAM slots, with the fan attached it does still block the 1st RAM slot on my Asus M5 motherboard. It would only block the RAM by about 1 or 2mm if I was using RAM with no heat sink, but by more like 3 or 4mm with my RAM. And there was not enough spare height in my case to mount the fan higher or to pull the air through from that back. To get around that, I've replaced the fan with much thinner (but very quiet and somewhat more powerful) Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 140mm fan. That gained me 10mm extra space - an unexpected (well, half-expected - I was always a little sceptical about it fitting) additional expense. Fitting the Vortex was easily done, but it did involve trimming off the plastic from the fan at the 4 mounting points so that the Macho's fan clips would fit, and adding a cable tie to ensure that the clips stayed tightly in place.
