Amazing piece of kit, really well designed and looks great and lives up to it's name, it can't be heard over the case fans which aren't very loud anyway! Easily installed outside of a case and includes all the fitting accessories for all main processor types including Socket 2011. Best use low profile RAM however as it does overhang a couple of the slots. Reassuringly imposing, heavy, stylish and very impressive.

This cooler does everything it needs to. It's VERY silent (in fact, if I didn't see fans working, I'd say it was passive) and its size and incredible amount of heatpipes means it transfers heat away very well. I've had my 4770k run on 15 degrees with nothing going on, normally during gaming between 35 and 45. Stress test pushes it to 50-55. I should probably check the thermal paste because I don't think it's properly spread. But it works great and makes no noise (I could sleep next to it if I wanted to).

The build quality on this product is really nice. The build quality is impeccable and it just feels well made.It also looks pretty darn nice.

Installation was fairly easy, although I would recommend taking your motherboard out of the case and having a friend help you, otherwise it could be a bit tricky.

It also does really well in the thermal department. It keeps my i7 860 (no OC) below 48 degrees with an ambient of about 20 degrees and it does so at only 45% fan speed, at which it is inaudible (and I do have a very silent computer).

Also a clever little addition is that it comes with a PWM-splitter so you only have to use one of your motherboard's 4-pin connections.

I can definitely recommend this product. One of the best, if not the best (in terms of noise to cooling ratio) high end cooler out there.

I bought this to replace the stock cooler on my cpu and pretty much as soon as I installed it I knew I'd made the right choice. The fans are far quieter than I was used to before. I opened Core Temp and then ran several games that used to send my cpu up to over 50C. I noticed immediately that the temperature was hovering at no more than 5C above room temperature even at load.

The only problem I could see is that anyone with midi case or smaller will likely have trouble fitting this beast into their system without customisation. Other than that I would recommend this as an alternative to liquid cooling.

How do i begin if it can keep a beast of a CPU which is the fx-9590 which eats up 220W of power down to 30C on idle and 50C on full load running for 5 Hours then there isn't much more i can say about how good it is. Its super quiet as well, I can barely hear this beast even when its in full action mode. It really is a extremely good cooler it may be a bit on the expensive side but now you know why its more expensive than the Noctua. Its a real breeze to install the instructions are super easy and comes with plenty of screws for the people who tend to get clumsy. All in all I'm glad i spent 20 quid extra for this TRUST ME it's totally worth it.

great cooler, very quite, does a great job, dropped my I5 4670k by about 15 degrees, quick and promt delivery, only thing is watch the hight of your ram, i have g skill ripjaws x pc3-14900u cl 10, and it just fits over them anything higher than that your gonna be struggling, also depending on your case you may have to take out the motherboard to attach the cooler, not to much bother tho, i have the deep silence 1 and had to do that, just as it attaches with a back plate on the underside of the motherboard, easy to do, just takes a wee bit more time, youtube it! fab cooler tho and looks dead cool too, lol!

Although I am happy with it and it has not let me down after 6+months, I expected more performance / cooling, though I guess thats the problem with noise vs cooling performance.

I was more interested in less noise, so I can live with the cooler not cooling to what I would like it to cool, but thats my personal preference, I could and can turn it all the way up to 100% speed and get cooler results, however I still do not think it performs as well as some other brands and I definitely don't want the noise generated at 100% fan speed.

This is the only reason i give it 4 stars, but more of a personal preference.

Awesome points for, it looks great and goes well wityh my Corsair 750D case, it is quiet when running normal speeds, and even if your PC decides it needs to spin up the fans to where they start to make a noise or are louder, your graphics card will at this point be making more noise.

All in all I am pleased.

I put this on an i5 chip and it drop the temp considerably, Maybe as much as 20 Celsius.
Be warned this cooler is pretty big, in fact huge. It covers my ram slots but there is just enough room for my Kingston XMP Beast series ram.under it.
