Pros
Great value, very silent, very cool
Cons
A little hard to install if you are putting this on the mother board that already installed in the case.
Summary
Since I have install this I have no complain with CPU fan noise. The CPU temp. is drop 4~5C and still very silent!

Pros
Dropped my OC'd CPU load temp 24 degres
Cons
It's huge.
Summary
Works better then I expected. My AMD 6000+ oc'd to 3.405 ghz would hit 68 degress running 3dmark06. Now it hits 44 with this cooler, also dropped my motherboard 6'c. I highly recommend this cooler as long as you have the space. It just touches my fan on the side of case. And don't use the stock silicon based thermal paste, get some silver instead.

Pros
One of the best CPU air coolers around
Quiet
Good price
Cons
Freaking huge
Hard to install inside a case
Summary
This thing is massive. I have an Enermax Uber Chakra case and to put the side panel on, I can only use one screw at the top, the bottom one cannot get on without bending significantly. Of course, the case has a side mounted fan which hits it, but it is still massive. Make sure it fits before purchasing. I still love it even though its a fattie.

Pros
Simple Installation. Very Very Quiet. Cools very well.
Cons
Maybe too big. Maybe too heavy.
Summary
This is a great cooler. I did alot of research before buying and found this to be a great choice. I was looking for a relatively low cost alternative cooler for my new Q6600 that would let me overclock while not generating alot of noise. I ended up choosing the Infinity (also known as Mugen) since it fit my requirements perfectly.
It is very heavy for a cooler and does not install with a backplate so I was worried about it falling out of the socket (and destroying other components) when I first installed it, but those worries are gone now as it has been installed for around a month and seems very sturdy.
I was also worried about it fitting in my case and on my motherboard. Thankfully, it fit with no problems (and some room to spare).
The cooler fits on a nforce 680i LT motherboard without issues. Note that my version of the board has the shorter northbridge HSF.
Also, the cooler fits with room to spare in the CM 690 case (but not enough room to use a second fan on the side panel).
Note that I installed my infinity on the motherboard before putting the motherboard into my case. This made securing the heatsink to the motherboard easy. You may have problems if you try installing it without taking out the motherboard as you might not be able to get enough leverage to secure the heatsink properly (the fins block direct access to the push pins).

The included fan is very quiet but seems to get toasty after some use. I don't think this is a problem but it might be something to look into. The fan has a 3 pin connector so the MB can't alter it's speed. It always runs at around 1300rpm. The fan is held in place tightly with the two included clips.

As for temps, at an ambient ~22 degrees C my stock Q6600 (2.4GHz) was idling at around 28 degrees C and loading at around 45 degrees C. When overclocked to 3.2GHz it idles at 29.5 degrees C and loads at 52 degrees C.

The cooler comes with some thermal paste, which I used. It works just as well as any other I think.
I won't say anything about the included manual since I didn't look at it. The installation is so simple there really wasn't any need to.

So, to sum it up. This cooler is great. It comes with everything you need and is relatively low cost.

Pros
Nice product, keeps the quad cool with minimum noise.
Cons
Not the greatest cooler on the market but a solid performer none the less.
Summary
This is a pretty good product. I have had experience with the ninja so I decided to try this instead for a build and was pleased with the results.

Pros
Top 3 air cooler
Heat-pipe
Ability to mount 4 fans
Quiet fan
Cons
The mounting system doesn't provide good contact with the CPU.
The mounting system is very frustrated to mount, spend 2 hrs messing around >.<
Summary
I like it because of its quiet nature and consistence performance belongs to top 3 coolers. But the mounting system is very hard to push it up properly. Because its fins don't have the hole that you can fit a flat head screw drive in, well let's hope that you have a small hand AND strong fingers, otherwise you will have to spend 2 hrs plus messing around and still not able to mount it and couple sore fingers >.<

Experience: 3 Weeks
Pros
- Low load and idle temps
- Fits 4 fans!
Cons
- Blocks 2 of 4 ram slots on my mobo (ram will fit but will be unaccessible)
- Only mounts in one direction (cant rotate)
Summary
Its pretty freakin' huge and makes 2 of my ram slots unaccessible after installed (ram still fits under though). It cools amazingly well. I haven't seen anything past 33C/45C (idle/load) even with my X2 3800 Windsor at 2700Mhz (2000Mhz stock).

If you have the room (and the cash) this is a very nice choice.

Cheers,

Justin

Pros
Stylish, fits most sockets, cools down my P4 478 3.2 to 29c.
Cons
Very big in size, problems installing, may not fit inside some pc cases.
Summary
I just installed this gigantic heatsink on a P4 478 3.2c CPU hoping it would cool it down at least by 5c and it did more than that (idle at 29c). The fan that comes with it is a "silent version" as it is written on the box, it is made in China and the quality of it is not that great. The heatsink itself is made in Taiwan. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone because there are better heatsinks out there.

Pros
120 MM Fan.
Solid construction.
Weight for the size.
Cons
Size... Its HUGE! Check for mobo compatibility.
Installation is tricky because of size.
Mounting system for LGA775 made me say church words.
Summary
Currently installed in on an ASUS P5B-E with a E6600. My installation is most likely faulty as I'm getting 45c at idling.

Pros
Lowers temps significantly.
Potential for passive cooling.
Cons
Very large. (Check case compatibility)
Very heavy. (Though it still holds strong to the mobo)
Summary
This is the best aftermarket heatsink I've ever used personally, and based on the reviews, is one of the top heatsinks available. It cleared the motherboard components (P5B Deluxe), making it a good fit in my case as well (TJ04). I am so pleased, I'm ordering another one for my new rig.

Comment: One of the largest (if not THE largest) heatsink on the market. Offers performance but at a heavy price: the cost and sheer size proving that air cooling can only go so far before hitting diminishing returns.
