* Remark: When a cooler is installed in a vertical orientation on the motherboard with a fan holder , the fan-holder will interfere with the VGA card if the first slot is PCIEx16 (in this case :1156 platform )

The new Intel Core i7 platform includes a new larger CPU socket that forces you to get a new CPU cooler. The task of picking out the right cooler can be daunting, so we figured that we'd give you all the information in one article to make the task of finding information and comparisons easy.

I don't have this exact model, I have the older original one. I can't recommend it enough though. It provides excellent cooling with a single mediocre fan. I've never had heat problems on my CPUs since owning it, not even close.
Bought this for my i7 920 build, overclocked on a p6t to 3.6ghz with idle temps from ~31-40 degrees and ~59-60 degrees at load. used mx-2 thermal paste along with this. This heatsink is somewhat hard to install as the base sorta shifts, and dust tend to collect after time.
I have had this cooler on my i7 920 C0 (yea, C0) OC'd a 4.2Ghz and 1.245 volts. In a 22 deg C room I run at 41 deg C. Running on an ASUS GeneII in an Antec P180 Mini. Push / Pull fan setup. All fans set to are set to low. Nice thing is you can move the fan up/down depending on your memory configuration so you can install memory in all DIMM slots.
so far it has been cooling good. I was using water for quite some time now so this is the first air on a overclocked unit. it is large although i assume any similar cooling units will be of similar size.it has some weight to go with its size so i do have a little board warp noticeable but am getting good contact on cpu spreader. running in haf922 and fits fine with room probably to put a fan on the door.
I had purchased this product to install onto my EVGA X58 Classified combined with an I7 920 CPU in the hopes that I would have better temperatures with this heatsink and 2 fans in a push pull configuration, Unfortunately I did not have such luck and it resulted in only 4 out of the 6gb of memory that I had installed to be available
Good product with excellent reviews from every site I've been too. Larger than expected with some ram clearance issues for some people with gaming ram, but seeing as I don't have that type it worked fine. Quieter than I thought it would be as well and the thermals are awesome. Not really for non overclockers since the price is a bit high.
