Black one is sexy.

How are you supposed to screw it down with the fins overhanging the base?

well, the phanteks ph-tc14pe is a solid performer vs the Noctua NH-D14, so I think this one might perform well also :)

What i especially like about this cooler is the fact that you can place a fan between CPU base and cooler fins. This way you save loads of height space, meaning you can stuff very high end stuff into small cases. My Lian Li V354 for example, without compromising cooling capability.
Only similar cooler was Thermalright AXP-140 which was also quite pricy, but is an excellent cooler. Low profile and is cooling my Core i7 920 @ 3,8GHz nicely at very low RPM (like 800rpm). I like.

The red one would go so good with any Asus ROG board, the fin detailing is excellent on these coolers, but those fans just cannot be up to the quality level of Noctua. Damn it Noctua give us another color than maroon and beige yuk! I just ordered 3 Noctua NF-F12 focus flows, two for an H100 positive pressure install and one rear exhaust. They will totally blow my Red/Black ROG theme for my new 3770K Ivy Bridge build, but they cannot be seen with the Corsair 650D window panel in place, whew!!! My only saving grace!:D

my guess would be an allen key tool or something like that (hopefully its bundled with it).

The Zalman CNPS 9900 has this same issue, they give you an allen wrench with in indent in the tool to let it turn a bit. Be careful because if you try to tighten it at an angle with that side you could strip the bolt or the allen wrench. My recommendation woud be to use the long end to get it on and tightened just enough and use the short end to tighten it the rest of the way (since it doesn't strip as easily.) Don't over-tighten it though, or you might reget it (extra true for LGA2011 owners since the bracket is built into the motherboard.

Here, I even have a picture of the two I needed to use for my zalman (one stripped a little. :banghead: )

really? i used to have a 9900 and used it in 3 different mobo's (775, 1366 and 1155) and i just used a normal screwdriver. (albeit a narrow necked screwdriver). Although mine was the normal copper one not the max edition or anything. Although I must agree, some care is needed not to damage the cooler or strip the screws.
