I was running a stock Intel i7 cooler and this heat sink lowered my CPU idle temp from 40° C down to 30 C. Peak gaming temps were lowered from 80° C to 45 ~ 50° C. Powerful fan adds some extra directionality to my case's airflow.
This is a very big heat sink. Be sure to double check the dimensions compared to your case! The plastic support arms that go on the back of the motherboard are quite long and I had to shave 1 or 2mm off the tips of two of them to make them fit. Beware if you don't have a large hole behind your processor. Fan audibly rattled (quietly but still irritating) at full RPM during testing, but so far I haven't gotten to that fan speed even with high outside temperatures and high-end gaming.
Looks great in the case. Cools very well compared to a stock heat sink. Incredible value for price!
