    Big and beautiful but also I TOTAL PAIN to install. I would suggest this only if you are gonna be patient when installing a CPU cooler because it really is a fantastic cooler despite the installation woes

    Black, cold and Silent what else matters!

    If you have a socket set with an extension this is super easy to install! IF not its a bit of a pain.

    Bought mainly for looks, and while its quiet, temps are average. Mounting is solid and a overall a good purchase if its on sale.

    Wanted a change from AIO. The best looking air cooler IMO and performs just as well as an AIO for less. I didn't really like the logo popping so much so, decided to mute it a bit to add to its industrial look. Super quiet too.

    EDIT: I decided I don't not really like the look of the brushed metal so I sprayed it Matt Metallic to match the rest of the build. I also decided to make the logo look like it was stamped into the plate, than just a badge.

    High quality CPU Cooler. The reason I gave it 3 stars? It's VERY VERY hard to mount.

    Great performance. Very quiet. Looks good. I've historically used noctua, but given how ugly their products are, no more. One thing I do miss is that mounting hardware from noctua. No one does it better, but this one isn't too bad.

    Beefy cooler. Keeps the cpu really cool. Fan is dead silent, really cool stuff. Bought this cooler used, totally overkill for a i5 8400 but it looks damn sexy in my case.
