Excellent service from takealot as usual, delivered in 24 hours.
The cooler comes with parts to fit both AMD and Intel CPUs. I have the Intel 4790K (LGA 1150). Installation was fairly simple, however the case I use (CM690 III) required me to remove the motherboard in order to fit the backplate as the cable management grating happened to cover just one side of the backplate fitting (I imagine Corsair cases would allow you to install the backplate through removing just the side panel).
The radiator is quite large and fit snugly with maybe a 0.5cm clearance between the radiator and the motherboard (ASROCK Z97 Extreme 4). The actual CPU mount comes with bolts to fasten to the CPU and feels much more secure than using a stock cooler. Thermal paste has been pre-applied to the cooler.
My CPU temperature now idles at around 35 - 40 Â°C. Using the stock cooler I was getting idle temperatures around 45 - 50 Â°C (very warm room). Testing in Dragon Age: Inquisition at ultra settings - stock cooler was getting 80 - 90 Â°C and I am now getting 45 - 55 Â°C.

Got my i5 running nice and cool under load at 4.6 GHz :) so happy with this. Easy installation and nice little color caps to match your mobo. Service excellent as usual from Takealot!!!
