    Actually the Noctua I used was great. However after transitioning to an AIO Corsair setup I found it's much easier to install and I'm also far less concerned if I need to move my PC anywhere, due to the sheer weight of an air cooler like this one.

    CoolerMaster must be out of their minds with this pricing...

    RGB fans can just be added onto a Noctua, BeQuiet or other cooler later.
    Better spending on the better cooler first, even if you have to pay more to add RGB.

    Easier maintenance as a consequence of easier fitting should IMO be more of a priority than your lighting.

    Considering Noctua provides a backplate with bolts that go straight through the motherboard that mechanically clamps the mounting mechanism from the front and back, the only way the heatsink would do damage from moving it about is if you hurled your computer down the stairs. It's incredibly stable.

    Re: Cooler Master MasterAir MA620P

    With the mounting brackets attached to the heatsink, you're asked to fit and tighten four bolts using the supplied wrench.
    Umm no you spanner the bolts without the cooler attached, then after attaching the cooler you spanner the nuts.
    Yes it can still be a bit tricky however the nuts sit higher than the bolts, this is always why you should fit an air cooler out of the case.

    Noctua's sprung screw method is easier to fit

    As to price the Noctua dh-15 is £80 so it looks like cooler master is trying to slightly undercut them, however at that price I'd take an AIO cooler over ether of them.
    The Hyper 212 has been so successful because it's got amazing an price/performance point, in the same way the old arctic cooling freezer 7 pro did.
