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.

The cooler is absolutely amazing, I did not expect it to be that good when I bought it.

It runs the i73770 on 27 degrees while idle, cooler than the motherboard. ~45-50C on full load. (with 2 stock case fans on fractal design mini). Works at 500rmp, noiseless, goes up to 650 on load, again noiseless. They have taken great care to keep it noiseless, there are even rubber pads included. The installation kit is easy to use and very, very stable.

The clips that attach the fan are a bit dodgy but even with just corners clipped the fan is just as stable. I used the usual trick with cable ties to grip the fan on the heatsink instead of the included clips so it would sit lower and the case could close. Weirdly enough it did not obstruct neither the graphics card not the memory slots. You can rotate it to either blow backwards, or upwards.

On a sidenote the motherboard would not let me boot because it misunderstood the low RPM for fan error. You may have to adjust the settings to lower that threshold or to ignore it.

I certainly recommend it.

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).

Works well when fitted achieving low CPU temperatures. However, it is a little tricky to fit, Basically the main lump of copper and aluminium it sits on top of the CPU and a metal plate is placed over the top that you have to screw down to a frame that you have previously secured to the motherboard. It is very difficult to stop the heatsink squirming around as you try to fit and tighten the two screws securing the plate to the frame. This is despite the fact that the heatsink is supplied with a very good, long and extremely magnetic screwdriver. This screwdriver is really needed since one of the screws has to be tightened through the depth of the heatsink's fins.
