The new Black Megahalems CPU cooler is a killer in both appearance and cooling performance. It was designed with improvements from the ever popular Megahalems. Stylish black grainy matte finish delivers the best looking performance. Besides compatibility with the mainstream Intel’s and AMD’s socket, the Black Megahalems is also compatible with the newest Intel LGA 2011 socket. No longer will you have to choose which backplate to use because a specially designed universal backplate has been created for better convenience and better cooling results. What Megahalems has set in performance standards, now Black Megahalems will raise the bar one level higher! Everything else aside, if looks are everything to you, this is the one heatsink to get!!
Dark tunnel light at the end. :)
Pros: *Mounting clip solution for Fm2+
Cons: * The outer finish on the top fin to protect it from "wear and tear" scratches so easily. Nothing tough about it.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy any vortex fans for this. The things that make it look cool on the website. Doesn't work with tie wraps.

Pros: Installs easily, using two Noctua NF-F12 PWM high static pressure 1500 rpm fans. These fans are more than big enough, they fill the available area. The 140 mm fans would be difficult to install and likely conflict with high-performance memory sticks. Had to raise these just a bit to clear the Kingsont HyperX Beast memory (32 GB of 4 x 4 GB). Still able to mount to the sides with the included wire mounts. Using this on an Intel i7-4930K. Performance is excellent. Running the CPU at 4.5 GHZ with idle temps in the 30 C range and temps under Prime 95 mostly in the 70's. The Megahalems Black comes with the screws to attach it directly to the Socket 2011 CPU socket. No CPU socket 2011 backplate change required, although this is not obvious from the instructions. One of the best air-coolers around.
Cons: Instructions are not great. May have to raise fans on cooler slightly to clear high performance memory.
Other Thoughts: Highly recommended, great-looking cooler. Probably worthwhile to look for a Megahalems Black install video online. Use Zalman STG-1 super thermal grease. Paints on like fingernail polish (extremely easy application) and high performance.
