So I ordered this cooler for my new computer, I was told it was just about the biggest cooler around, but I didn’t think it was this colossal! I’m glad I got the CoolerMaster HAF X case, I don’t think this would fit in many other cases.
Thermal pasting this thing is a huge job, you need to put it upside down, have someone else hold it while you gently lower the motherboard onto it (hard to aim it at the CPU while the motherboard is upside down!), then you need someone to hold the motherboard in place (balancing it as well, so not to ooze the paste to a certain side) while someone puts on and tightens the back brace.
