I picked this up to go with my HAF-932 Case, the style of the cooler matches the case perfectly. Installation was not as complicated as others have written about either on here or elsewhere. Install took me all of 15 minutes, and I didn't even have to remove my motherboard.

Power for the LED is supplied via a Molex connector, both fans plug into a "Y" adapter to plug into the PWM as a single cable. One thing that would be wanted here is maybe some labeling or markings on the fans so you know which one is which. Although When I pulled the fans off for the first time I stuck a sticky note to each one with its direction and orientation written down.

Alright, here is the REAL information that you guys want.
Right now I am running a Q6600 Intel Core2Quad stock speed at 2.4ghz, with everything set to stock my idle temps are around 20-25 C. Full load- 30-40 c.

I went ahead and stepped my CPU up about 10% (2.4ghz->3.0Ghz) Idle temps changed to 24-35 and full load was about 45-55. Compared to the $20 cooler I had in there previously (idle 35-40, load 50-70-freeze) This is a MAJOR improvement, there may be a newer model of this out now, but I love this cooler. Aside from the fact that it looks pretty radical, it has a decent heft and weight. Do not be worried about your motherboard or the fact that you are hanging a massive box off your cpu slot as the mounting hardware keeps everything distributed and even. The parts supplied will fit a rather large range of CPU sockets from AMD to Intel (775 and up). I am glad I got this heatsink as I will be moving it up to when I upgrade my motherboard/cpu again here soon.

I have an AMD Phenom IIx4 965 BE 3.4 ghz that usually runs anywhere from 34-36 idle and 45-52 on max load so I hadn't botherd to try to OC it. I changed my setup a little bit so I decided I needed a third party cooling solution.

Original Setup

Phenom II 965 BE 3.4ghz
8gb DDR3
2tb Sata III
1tb Sata II
500 Gb Sata II
600w Thermaltake TR2
Radeon 6870 1gb DDR5

New Setup

Phenom II 965 BE 3.4 ghz overclocked to 3.9 ghz
16gb DDR3
same hard drives
800w CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gold
Radeon 6970 2 GB DDR5

Even with the increased hardware voltage and overclocked CPU my idle temps have decreased quite a bit. Idle: 27C Max Load: 35C but I have to add that I also have several fans in the case. CoolerMaster 922HAF: 3 200mm fans (front,top and side) and two 120mm fans ( bottom and back ) but adding the V6 GT brought my CPU temps down to match by system temps.
I have a friend who has an almost identical system and is OC'd to 3.8 using a Corsair H50 liquid cooler and is still reaching 40-45C on max load.

**Edit: I must add that you have to make sure this will fit in your board it is HUGE! The biggest complaint I have found is that depending on your board it may interfere with the closest ram slot.

This cooler is not perfect but is sure is close. A little pricey but performs so well that I don't even miss the few extra dollars I paid compared to the time I would waste researching a cheaper alternative. First off, its not as loud as everyone or reviews say it is. Yes, it can get loud if it has to go into overdrive to compensate for excessive heat from overclock. I have a AMD X6 2.8ghz stock clock speed at 22*c . Highest temp was 26*C. And I do just about everything. comapred to the stock cooler which was 38* idle and in the mid 40s. at 1100rpm this thing is quiet as a mouse, I can't hear a single thing. I even bought noctua fans to replace the dyna loops because how scared I was of all the reviews but i dont need them anymore. The cooler is big but not heavy. on a gigabyte board it will only affect one really tall ram heatsink such as a G.skill rip saw for height clearance. I have the cooler in a cooler master storm scout. i have maybe .5 in of clearance left. Installation took 5minutes. There are a lot of parts and many alternative ways to install it on an AMD proc. I thought the installation was easier than the stock cooler install. Also there is a LED stripe. Overall I love the cooler its beautiful and does the job effortlessly

First off, I have to say this thing is amazing. Moves air great, has three picks of LED, and has two fans. Only thing I would have to say is, careful of the motherboard you have and how close the RAM slots are. Having the Sabertooth z77 motherboard, I couldn't put it in correctly, (air flowing out the back)so instead I had to install it with the air flowing out the top of my case. Due to the thermal armor on the motherboard, also doing this blocked one of my RAM slots nothing serious but just wish I could use all my RAM. Also the instruction was sort of lacking good steps and just seemed like they threw it in really fast. Cause mounting this bad boy was abit annoying. Any ways this is a thing worth the buy if you don't feel like buying something over 80 dollars.

I built a 4 core phenom II black edition computer 3 years ago. I didn't overclock it on purpose so that when I got the itch for a newer faster computer, I would then overclock it and get a few more years out of it. With the factory cooler I was idling at around 43c and would see 54 under load at stock 3gig speeds. Now with a mild overclock to 3.3gig, I idle at 31c and full prime 95 loads are 45c. Big difference. This cooler just barely fits in my Antec Sonata III mid tower and had no problems clearing my Corsair XMS 2 ram with its low profile heat spreaders. The fans are pretty quiet unless you go full tilt for a while, then they ramp up noise levels, but not anything I wouldnt expect. Install was not fun though, as I had to take the motherboard out to get to the back side since my case doesnt open on the other side, and wiring was very difficult to plug in once cooler was mounted, but thats my fault. I bought this with a box of 4 cooler master 120mm fans and my computer is fast and cool now.

P.S. I came across some review site where they test coolers, this one came out on top in stock form, then they took all the fans off and used 1 fan of the same brand to test the different coolers, and this one got a low score. Thats a silly review. Its designed to have the two fans it comes with, obviously, by the fact that it was the coolest in stock form. All in all though, it doesnt too much matter which of the name brand coolers you go with, they are all better than the stock fan when things start heating up.
