Quiet, fits in my case, fans are top-notch quality, great cooling keeps my overclocked CPU nice and happy
The NF-P12 fans are not PWM fans. I control their speeds via BIOS so it's all good.
Got it at a great price of $39.99 from NCIX. Don't just settle for CM 212 evo, step it up if you value a cool and quiet system.

Experience: 4 Days

Easy to install. Extremely quiet. Adjustable performance. PCs running cool and quiet.
Some people don't like the color. I think it's different and the earth tones are pleasant. It's a classy look that sets them apart.

Extremely quiet
Very nice packaging
Very clear instructions
High quality
I love that cooler. I have tried all water cooled corsair cooler, and all pupms were noisy. This cooler is really quiet!

- Very quiet
- Awesome cooling performance
- Quite pricey
- Fan colours could be changed, but in most cases you won't see them anyways.
From my stock Intel cooler on my 3570K I went from 35C to 28C at idle, and 60C to 49C while playing Diablo 3. With Prime95 my absolute max temps are at 60C, from 72C before. On top of all this, I can hardly hear the fans when at max speeds (mind you this is in a Corsair 550D). Before, the stock Intel cooler was ridiculously loud.
This cooler has exceeded my expectations, and for this the price is justifiable. Great cooler, definitely recommended.

Experience: 11 Months
Extremely high build quality.
Cools like a fridge.
Sturdy mount.
Whisper quiet fans.
The fins of the heatsink can be tricky to clean since they trap dust but this is a problem for every heatsink tower out there.

Large size can obstruct RAM module on the RAM slot closest to the CPU socket on an ATX sized motherboard. This is also a problem with all heatsinks in this size range though.
This is the best air cooler in this size range. Twin 120mm fans keep my i7 2600K at 58 celcius max at 4.5Ghz with 100% load after running Prime 95 for 2 hours.

Highly recommended for any builder who doesn't want to go for larger heatsinks but still wants to overclock by at least 30%.

There are some installation problems with high profile RAM, however, these problems exist for all heatsinks of this size or larger:

#1 - For an ATX sized board: If you want to install RAM in all the RAM slots, make sure you you buy a low profile RAM module for the RAM slot closest to the CPU so that the back 120mm fan of the heatsink installs easily.

#2 - For a micro ATX sized board: It is best to have all your RAM modules be low profile.

Experience: 1 Years
efficient, quite, and
it cools my core 1!7 well 25 degrees blow stock coolers

Installed EZ
Very very good cooler. Installed withotu issue and keeping a 4.5ghz 2500K under 65°c LinX primed.

Experience: 1 Weeks
Really good at low fan speeds for silent operation
Two included NF-P12 fans
Great mounting system
Fans have high startup voltage. Sometimes doesn't start at 5V.
Even at 5V a little too noisy. One of the included fans have a clicking noise
Did not receive free gift
Expensive - I wish they sold it without the fans at a much lower price
Had my doubts that it could beat a TRUE120 with only 4 heatpipes but it does it with ease!

Experience: 1 Weeks

-fairly easy to install on either AMD/Intel
-works with LGA 1155 (just sue 1156 slots)
-cools my 2500K like a champ, under 50C with stress gaming, never goes above 60 with stress tests.
-quiet, but not as quiet as I would like.
-HUGE, but stable, might not fit every case though.
-120mm fans, might be worth the extra $10 to go for 140mm ver.
Really please with this cooler, definitely top of the line.
