I bought this to replace a liquid cooler whose pump was too loud for my use; this is installed in a custom HTPC. This PC is kept running as it is my program recorder. The liquid cooler was a Corsair; it was efficient in heat dissipation but could be heard 15 feet away in a quiet room. This unit cannot be heard when standing next to the PC: a world of difference. I use a the same unit in my main PC. Both have quad core AMD processors and 8GB Ram running Windows 7 Professional.
I highly recommend this cooler for just about any PC. CPU temperatures average 39 to 41 degress C under heavy load with ambient temps of 78 to 80 degrees F.

I've previously been satisfied with the stock heatsink and fan (HSF) that came with my retail CPUs since I wasn't really into overclocking. But lately, I've been really involved with heavy duty video encoding where you're having the CPU run at 100% for days straight. With the stock HSF, once the CPU goes to 100% usage, the fan would spin faster to outrageously loud levels. But my CPU would start to overheat to the point that the computer would crash and reboot. I ended up pointing a desk fan toward the inside of the case which dropped down the temperatures to a reasonable level. However, to have to point a desk fan is not an ideal situation.

So some kind people pointed me toward Noctua and told me about the great craftsmanship of their products. And they weren't kidding. This is some of the most amazing packaging and craftsmanship I've ever experienced in a computer product, rivaling the packaging you would expect from Microsoft or Apple. All the various parts and instructions are neatly itemized and separated for your convenience. Not only is the documentation quite good inside the package, but the website is well organized and has even more useful information such as a detailed FAQ. They believe in their product and provide a great 6 year warranty as well.

Having been accustomed to the standard HSF that comes with a CPU, it was a shock to see how enormous this Noctua HSF was. It truly is a powerful beast. It comes designed to fit both Intel and AMD CPUs. I personally have an AMD Phenom II 940 X4 Black Edition processor. There are brackets you add to the motherboard so that the HSF securely attaches to it. Since it's so enormous, you do have to be careful of the computer case you're using and the components on the motherboard such as the RAM.

I built a PC based on the Intel core i7-960 for video processing that also does double duty to power a home theater. The Noctua keeps the CPU running cool even with the strain of video editing and processing while the low noise fans are great for the home theater use.
After building numerous PC's, I highly recommend this cooler for high performance CPU's while maintaining a low noise environment. It is the best I have found for air cooling.
There is always liquid cooling for the ultimate in heat transfer, if cost is no object. But in high heat loads the external cooling fins will require a fan, and a fan outside the case is much loader than a fan inside a noise shielded PC case.

With the free NM-A90 SecuFirm2 Mounting-Kit (which allows one to rotate the orientation of the heatsink on an AMD processor 90 degrees) , this heat-sink works GREAT. Following the directions and swapping out the standard heat-sink retaining mounts for the Noctua one was easy. Mounting the heat-sink was easy. Even with having to mount the fan so it "pulls" thru the heatsink (problems with space in my case) it provides a noticable decrease in temp over the stock heatsink provided with the AMD A8-3870K. Note to AMD users: the following web site is where you may order the free adapter

I have a smaller case CoolerMaster Elite 330 with width of 7.4 inch, I read many product review of the cooler and heat sink, I narrowed down to two final choices - Thermal Right TS120 and Noctua NH-U12P, I selected Notua because it is a tiny bit shorter than Thermalright. Both of them are very good cooler, I have no doubt they can do a fine job with my cooling needs.

Noctua did not disappoint, it fits in my case with just barely enough room for me to close the cover, it reduces my CPU core temperature by 10 C, and the fan is quite. Here is my pro and con of this cooler:

Pro:

1. Really cool your CPU, I monitor with Speedfan before and after, it was high 50 before now it is down to 40s.
2. Quite
3. Good build quality, nice instructions
4. relatively easy to install once you have the motherboard out of your case

Con:

1. Missing one piece of anti-vibration strip, I think this is packing error.
2. The only way to mount the cooler is to orient it north and south direction for AMD mother board, if you do not have vent opening at top of the case, it basically block the internal air flow from front to rear
3. install cooler fan is a pain, and if you ever want to adjust heat sink mount to CPU, you have to take the fan off and remount it, repeat the pain process one more time.

Overall, I rate this Cooler very highly, no doubt this is a good piece equipment. Its quality is high and it is well made.

Equipment:
AMD 980 overclocked to 4.0Ghz from 3.7 Ghz with 226 FSB
Cooler master Elite 330 case
16GB Kingston Hyper-X memory DDR3
Hitachi RAID array on board RAID 0
MSI 5850 PCIe graphic card 1G memory
