I bought this for my new PC build with an i7-2600K processor in an Antec P280 case. With the processor overclocked to 4.4GHz, this setup was still near silent at idle, even with the case side off. The noise ramps up under heavy load (ie: running F@H), but is still no louder than my previous (non-overclocked) PC was at idle. CPU temp under maximum load runs about 61-65C.
Considering this heak sink performs as well as or better than heat sinks costing 2-3 times as much, it's also a fantastic deal. (See review at: [...])
About the seller: I was unfamiliar with the seller also, but received the item ahead of the expected date and had no problems with the order, so I'm pleased there, also.
0 core 17c, core 1 17c, core 2 19c, core 3 24c this is on i5-2500k, not overclocked! BF3 0 core 35c, core 1 35c, core 2 37c, core 3 40c. I was on Corsair H70 but it leaked killing my other motherboard, so I wanted to switch back to air, read a couple of reviews & decided on this one, all I can say is Great Cooler. I did use the cm's before water what a freaking pain to install by yourself!
I didn't use included fan or thermal paste. Artic silver & fan I used is Cougar cf-v12hp up to 70.2cfm @ 17.1 dba (quiet)& is PWM . The same fan I used on CM evo & plus! After I do a measurement for my other case CM 690II Advanced & if it will fit I'm buying another one for that system. Xeon E3 1270 V2 69watt.
The only con is it didn't come with second set of fan clips, BUMMER! For this price it should be included!
Installed on Asrock Z77 Extreme4-M no problems with memory or pcie issues, everything cleared with room to spare!
2500k overclock 4.32 24c idle 50c load. Took it back down to 4.2 24c idle load 48c, not bad at all! I did try the included thermal paste, same temps as artic silver so it must be good! Had to RMA my mobo, it kept freezing up but they did send me a brand new one (31 days old). I installed the E3 1240 SB proc on the AsRock board (it supports Xeon's) with this cooler idle 16c, load 38c that's running prime95. Very nice, BF3 37c multiplayer 64 Gulf of Oman!
I bought this after reading a review on a computer enthusiast web site. This cooler beat out several self contained water cooling solutions and was the least expensive per degree cooled.
Low price / superior cooling, got to love it. :)
In January 2012, I will be replacing the coolers in my three other computers with this one.
It's been in nearly constant usage since the second week of August 2012 and I have yet to find a fault with it. Even the stock fan is fine, good PWM fan.
If you need a honkin' HSF, this will probably do the trick.
The fan it came with was replaced with one that pushes more air. It's a tiny bit louder, but definitely worth it. Add a good case with lots of ventilation, and you're good to go. Even when my room is sweltering, the fan still keeps the processor well within safe heat levels.
I used graphic intensive programs like Corel Painter 12, and am an avid gamer. I've run Skyrim at it's highest settings...played for hours... and never had heat issues. Not even once.
I highly recommend this purchase.

I use this with my Core I7 920 processor. It was a little larger than I had planned, but I just removed one of the side fans from my case to fit it. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Owen E. Heuston
This worked well versus my stock cooler. Best air cooler I've used, but cleaning it was frequent. In addition it was a bit tall for my case. Read morePublished on December 14, 2013 by Luftwaffe2120
It has worked flawlessly for the last year. I use it with an overclocked 3570K. Core temperatures are around 34°C.Published on November 19, 2013 by Matrixunloaded

It is still super quiet and still cools my system wonderfully. Read more
