A bit scary to fit as it's a bit big.
Check out the size before you buy.
I set up an Intel board (Intel DZ77GA-70K S1155 Intel Z77 DDR3 ATX) and an i7(3770k) processor. 3.5Ghz runs at 4.2 continuous fine.
This Big Zalman CNPS 11X Extreme Processor Cooler fits in a standard PC box fine.
My memory fits beautifully 'beneath' it - to one side.
(I Can't use liquid cooling system as i don't have room for 120mm fan at rear. Pair of 80mm's only. )
Running CPUID HWMonitor shows surprisingly #cool# statistics. No concerns.
Instructions supplied are easy/moderate to follow. Even for a bit of a novice pc builder like me. I admit I was concerned when this turned up. 'Big' and 'chunky'... will it fit? I need not have worried.
VERY quiet. Impressed. I found good reviews on other sites (quiet solutions sites). I now believe what I read there.
A very adequate non liquid cooling alternative.
