I have it.
I give it an 8.5/10
Much better than stock obviously.
Was a bit difficult to install.
Huge.
Worth it.

Adding a replacement fan should lower some degrees..
The speed controller is ****e...its in back of the PC (PCI Slot)...
Whatever floats your boat if you're ok without it, since it will be at defaults speed.

It's alright. I have one sitting on my desk. It looks super badass, but apart from that, it's not that great. It really depends how much you're spending on it. It's pretty decent performance stock, and that fan should help a bit. I'm not sure how removing the fan controller will affect cooling performance.

But there are much better options available. If you're getting this super cheap, by all means do it. Most aftermarket coolers are night and day better than stock.

well, I've been using one and it is good vfm. But it doesn't perform that well if the ambient temps are low <20..
