Not Sure how to feel 05/08/2014
Big, Flashy, Cools Efficiently, Pleasing End Result.
Annoyingly hard to install, Comes in stereotypical red/black LED configuration, Big (I like it better then say a Noctua NH-D14 but it is still a little too big).
Had to take the fans off to even get it mounted and then ran into clearance issues trying to re-install the fan once it was mounted. (This is an Corsair 750D).
Needless to say this cooler is beyond ridiculously hard to install. Pretty sure you must have the hands of a child to be able to manipulate the small spaces that the provided installation instructions ask you to work with.
I feel it would be much better with some sort of quick release system as opposed to its current mounting approach because the rear retention points on the Intel bracket are impossible to get to if you have any kind of heat sinks around the socket on your Mobo.
I literally had to get a pair of tweezers to thread the retention nut on the back right side because of a heat sink. Needless to say by the time I finally got the thing mounted I felt like I ran a marathon. Some of these issues could be avoided by mounting this cooler on the motherboard while it is outside of the case. Even still its a pain then too unless you are building a completely new computer from scratch instead of swapping out a part for a new one.
Overall I really like the product but I had to take away two eggs because the LED lighting is stereotypical and the installation process is beyond frustrating.
