Standard cooler I had previously had a 90 mm fan who lapped up at the slightest exertion processor and roared its high-pitched annoying sound in season and out.
With this huge heatsink and its 120mm fan so I did not even hear the fan spinning under normal use. Chassis fans, video card and power supply can be heard more. When running at maximum (1600 rpm) you can hear it, but it's a low, low-pitched whooshing sound that is much more comfortable than the smaller ones, venomous fans. And even at max is the course incredibly much quieter than the Intel stock cooler.
I bought it just to get the noise level down and is not so interested in the temperature improvements, but if I remember the old temperatures are right, I seem to be around 15 degrees lower now than before.
Check in your chassis manual that you can fit it in height before you buy it. It is 158.5 mm high. My motherboard is the Asus P6X58D-E chassis is Fractal Design Define R2, and I have an Intel i7 950 processor. It's just that it fits.
Fan The quality I can not comment on because I just installed it.
Small minus to a nut was the wrong size, which meant an extra turn to Clas Ohlsson but it's not directly affecting the function.
The largest cooler I have ever seen, very nicely packaged with all screws and the radiator pasta in a separate plastic pouch.
Also easy to install, just to access the back of the motherboard.
The price is ridiculously low considering what you get imo ...
Cools Intel 4790K and is virtually silent during gaming.
+ In principle, silent, always
+ Cools well enough processor above
In summary, it can only get full marks.
Excellent CPU cooler for beginners! Definitely a great place to start if you are unsure (like I was). The only little problem with this cooler is the bracket that mounts it to the motherboard, it allows the cooler to twist very easily while you are try to hold it down and tighten the screws on the back of the mobo. . . how ever this is a minor detail.
