I have to highlight the fact that you need to make sure it fits your case. my new case Rosewill Blackhawk clears this by 1/2 inch, after I removed the side panel fan. My old case was a little smaller Cougar Solution, I didn't try it on but I guarantee you it will not fit. I use this on a fx 9590 and it seems to never go over 44 c on bf3 ultra settings. idles my cpu at around 20-25c. comes with brackets for additional fan to configure push/pull. I haven't used this but I'm sure it will drop couple degrees. It's relatively quiet but my other fans are loud, so I cant tell you how quiet it is for sure
it will block 2 ram slots closest to the cpu if you use fancy heatsink ones, but not if you used regular ram without heatsink, or low profile ram
just out of curiouslity I decided to see if my old ram will fit the slots. it doesn't have any heatsinks and with a slight effort it went right in and room to spare above it. prolly 1/2 inch,
In my setup I used balistix sport VLP and regular crucial balistix sport and all those fit. If you have the fanciest and biggest heatsinks on your ram don't even think about this cpu cooler. and don't waste your time to give negative feedback about it. This would be your fault..
If you are not ready to go water cooling yet, this is about as close as you will get on air only.
