I bought this to use with my P55 system and to my dismay it didn't come with a LGA 1156 mounting kit in the box. And the extra LGA1156 bracket is not available for sale at NCIX or any other Canadian retailers. BUT, when I explained my situation to Prolimatech one of their support representatives promptly told me that a kit has been sent my way. VERY very satisfied with their customer service.
I purchased this on special last week for $49.99 from NCIX and I am very happy with this cooler. The performance with my OC'd i7 920 C0 at 3.8 ghz with 1.34 volts VCore has been nothing short of top-notch. Paired up with a Coolermaster 2000RPM R4-L2R-20AC fan it's both silent and deadly. Core temp at 100% CPU utilization never exceeded 80 celsius in a case with average cooling. This exceeded my CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus by about 5 degrees celsius, while the 212 Plus was running with dual fans.
This cooler is absolutely excellent for cooling i7 processors. My i7 920, overclocked at 4.0GHz with 1.27 VCore, when using prime or IBT, never breaks 65C (using with Noctua 120mm NF-P12 model). Playing games, I rarely touch 60C.
I bought this for my I7 as the Coolermaster 212+ was not cutting it. I used two high cfm fans (110cfm) and it worked very well but, as you can imagine, things got a little noisy. From what I have seen this is pretty much equal to the TRUE. The mounting system is of very good quality, the best I have seen. I have moved on to water cooling which cools by another 5C with much less noise.
I've heard many good things about this cooler, and how it can actually compete against the TRUE cooler (Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme). Unfortunately, this cooler seems to lack in heat dispersion as I'm hovering at about 37C when I should be at around 30C. It still allows me to bring up the speed of my 955 to a decent level, but I was hoping for better cooling from this.
