Get a second fan. It will make things even quieter, because they'll run slower for the same amount of airflow.
Just be aware it's FRIGGING HUGE. It's 4 inches wide, 5 inches tall, and with both fans installed it is almost 4 inches thick. It won't fit in every case, so measure first. If it will fit, you won't be disappointed.
Installing it is a piece of cake and the instructions are very easy to follow in case if you have never installed a heatsink before.
There are also videos on YouTube that you could watch that show step by step of how to install a heatsinnk.
The performance of this heatsink is excellent. I installed this heatsink to my 3770K CPU and temps were running 43C idle with stock heatsink. After applying the Hyper 212+, the temps dropped to 34C idle so that's a big difference and I have a lot of headroom for overclocking. I plan on overclocking my 3770K to 4.4Ghz but I need to do more testing for that.
It comes with a 120mm fan attached pre-installed onto the heatsink and the metal clips make it very easy to remove the fan for heatsink. You also have an extra two metal clips in case you would want to add a second fan for more airflow. When it comes to noise, this beast is very quiet and does a good job at staying quiet even under full load. The Hyper 212+ comes with its own thermal paste which is decent but not the best one out there.
Pros: Excellent price/performance ratio | huge drop in load temp | quieter than stock
Cons: Huge- might interfere with ram, video cards, mosfet coolers, case side panel | not silent | pain to install if motherboard tray doesn't have a cut out
Note: I used Gelid Solutions GC-Extreme Thermal Compound TC-GC-03-A on this heatsink, I did not compare it to the included paste but I imagine the difference would be at most only a couple of degrees.
I'm taking a star away from all CPU fans from here to eternity tho -- at least until they start shipping the bloody things with BOTH fans (in all of them, forever). Case manufacturers (often the same people) annoy me with this move of "fan expansion slots!" too, but in this case what you are buying IS the bloody fan!
It just annoys the hell out of me.
That said, I heard since I bought this they do, in fact, have a model that has both fans -- but I didn't know that . . . .and I do still kinda blame them for that, regardless if I should.
So -- my petty peeves aside, this thing is worth the money, get it if you can, don't if you want to overclock. It handles my 8-core just fine so. . .yeah, unless you OC you won't need better, and by that point you'd be better with water cooling anyway. . . .
With that said though it does have some pain in the ass qualities. For one, getting the thing on is hard because of that thing which presses against the CPU. Novices will definitely feel like they maybe breaking the motherboard trying to get those screws in if they try to put this on after mounting the motherboard to the case, also because of its size it may for some be an issue when it comes to the memory slots. Depending if your memory stick has a heat sink, if it is over the top then you may have some frustration with this.
Otherwise, it's worth the money and does what it should. It also works with most smart fan applications for better utilization.
Little pissed the Amazon pic showed two fans for the 212 Plus, truth is it came with mounting brackets for one more fan but only one fan. This same product is on Newegg right now for $15 with the rebate, so I spent $33 for the same product essentially, bit of a rip-off.

Got 1 more fan for the push-pull config, keep my fx-8300 4.8 GHZ below 50C (inside a case with 6 120mm fans).
