Too big, and the mounting in my experience was terrible.

Mounting might be bad, but the reviews all say its a monster cooler. I'd be running one second hand if it did not slip out my grasp right before sending payment.

It is huge, the mounting was a bit of a pain, but it does cool great. It is nearly silent, at least compared to other fans in case. Be warned you may need to remove fans mounted over the CPU in the side panel.

I think the difficulty of the installation is exaggerated. Didn't seem that bad to me. And, it is one of the best coolers out there, probably the best price/performance wise.

This. As soon as you understand what's going on, it's a breeze. Just RTFM ;)
