They're meh...
The temps are just ok. Nothing amazing like the beastly NH-D14, Silver Arrow, or the Archon.
The fans are horrible imo. They get quite noisy.

Zalman 9900MAX or Venomous X from Thermalright are better IMO.
And if you're willing to spend the money and have the space, go with the three I've mentioned above.

I keep hearing bad things about the Zalman 9900MAX... Cant seem to find the silver arrow or Archon on newegg though. Right now it looks like Im leaning towards getting the Prolimatech Megahalems.
