Heatsink + Fan CPU Cooling Kit - Dual Silent Fan : NF-P14 140mm
NOCTUA - Sound-Optimized Premium Components CPU Cooler - NH-C14
The NH-C14 brings top-flow cooling to a new level by offering an exquisite, uniquely flexible 140mm dual fan setup: The two supplied NF-P14 premium fans can be installed on top and underneath the fin-stack to configure the cooler for maximum performance in dual fan mode and either lower profile (105mm) or maximum component clearance in single fan modes. Bundled with the award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound and Noctua's SecuFirm2TM multi-socket mounting system, the NH-C14 is a highly flexible, premium-class top-flow solution that further boosts the renowned quiet cooling performance of the much acclaimed NH-C12P series.

Performance wise, you'd struggle to get much better than this, on air or water. Stress testing my i5 4690k with the stock cooler saw it exceed 80c within a few seconds. This beast kept it below 60c with the fans spinning at around 20%. Enough said.
It probably won't look particularly great in your case but you're spending this kind of money more for the performance.
The only negative point would be that the fans lack pwm control, so plugging them in your cpu fan header will just result in 100% rpm. You could always use the low-noise adaptors they provide if noise becomes an issue and you wouldn't lose too much performance at all.
I personally just use a fan controller. Problem solved.
the temperature drop almost 20 to 25 degrees Celsius on my system.i was running my cpu at 44 degrees when idle now is so cool even in a hot room. i am amazed with this Heatsink. like others said and its true its huge i just realized it when i open the box and i thought this never gonna fit in my mid size tower but it did. i have to use my standard memory ram others with heat sinks will not let fit this amazing fan. thank you Noctua
Fitting on AMD is really easy (as someone else said just do one side at a time), and you can have it done in about 15minutes. You only get two orientation options for AMD, that being (on the Sabertooth), the heatpipes facing the front (the RAM side) or the rear (port side). The best orientation for my board was having the heatpipes at the RAM side - the fan had best coverage over the mosfets this way. I have four slots of G.Skil Ripjaws and the heatpipes were fouling the the 1st slot RAM - radical intervention with a Dremel to chop off some of the excess RAM heatsink sorted this issue for me but be aware if you have anything but low profile RAM in your first slot.
With both fans installed it fits into my Silverstone Grandia GD01 HTPC case with a decent amount of clearance but I think I'm going to cut an air intake into the top case just to maximise airflow. If you have a smaller case you have the option of running a single fan and I have no doubts that the cooler would handle it.
The only thing that confuses me about this product is why they do not bundle PWM fans as standard (or even have it as a package option). The Sabertooth really does a poor job trying to voltage control the CPU fans to the extent I'm not even sure it can. The low noise headers do a good job though if your motherboard has the same issue. In the end I ordered 2 Noctua NF-P14r (redux) PWM fans (the recommended alternative by Noctua support) and swapped them out for a better level of control (these fans are a really reasonable price on Amazon at the moment and in my opinion worth it). A plus also being that I have two beautiful 140mm case fans now too.
Anyway enough of my yacking, go buy it...
