Very easy to fit to the CPU, lots of different brackets for different CPU types. Very good quality fittings. This is not a negative, just a word of warning, the pipes from the cooler to the radiator are VERY stiff so don't offer much flex, I had to try several radiator mounting positions to get it into a position where the pipes were not kinked or pinched. In terms of its cooling ability, I have an i5-6500 and mid game the temp tops out at 45/50c. I was getting 60/70c on the stock air cooler. It's also practically silent. Would highly recommend this cooler.
