Stylish, quiet, compatibility and performance - I could not ask anymore from this cooler it performs really well, It keeps my i7 6700k at 23°C idle and around 60°C under load

Looks great, performs great. It took a solid 30 days to get my AM4 bracket for the cooler, but now that I've installed it everything's perfect for me.
The AM4 bracket did NOT slot onto the standoffs smoothly, either a result of burrs on the drilled holes or just weird threads, but once it was on, it was snug and didn't shift around. CRYORIG uses two screws to tighten down the heatsink, and rather than reach around the fins, you use a really long screwdriver and go right through the middle. They provide that screwdriver, at least, and they also designed it to be very hard to overtighten the screws, since you have no way to see what you're doing.
For the most part though, if you follow the instructions, it should be impossible to mess up the installation. CRYORIG's included thermal paste also performs admirably.

Had difficulty at the start with two of the four back plate screws not fitting through the motherboard. But after grinding them down it was a pretty smooth install. Temperatures are good. It looks stunning as well. For the current price - happy days. Getting 25-30 degrees idle @ 4.6 GHz and 69-73 degrees whilst under 100% load.

I'll be honest, I was expecting better. Maybe I just got a dud somehow, but with temps into the high 70's and peaking in the low 80's consistently while gaming, I was expecting a little better. Don't get me wrong it gets the job done, and for the price maybe I shouldn't be complaining. Also comes with a screwdriver for installation that is simply amazing for all aspects of the build.

Looks great, but I have problem with a loud fan (bearing sound). Ordered XT140 fan as replacement and you know what? The same issue. Really disappointed. As for the CPU temps I thought it would be better. This is the loudest part in my build. I would definitely not recommend this CPU cooler.

UPDATE: Really funny. Changed to Cryorig H7 and finally - absolutely silent on idle/light work, and much more quieter under full load. The strangest thing is that CPU temps dropped by 3-4 degrees C on idle and full load with 7700k.

This cooler is incredible!! I love the look of it and the performance is a good step above the hyper 212 evo even though i still installed it backwords.
