This thing is beautiful and quiet. I did a test boot before building and the heatsink fan was the only moving part. I ended up turning off all the noise-makers in the house to see if I could hear the fan. I couldn't.
I good dependable CPU cooler, although it is a little two large. Otherwise I recommend it.
It cools the 4790k in my sister's build, but only just. I'm pretty sure a fan or two more will solve that.
Looks awesome, doesn't block RAM, cools well, and is very quiet.
This cooler is designed for boards with large RAM modules where other tower coolers won't fit. Good for Ryzen 7 overclocking as long as the you set the voltage no higher than 1.4v. I received a free AM4 bracket from Phanteks about a week after submitting my proof of purchase. Even though the Corsair Spec Alpha states coolers larger than 156mm won't fit, this one does, with a couple millimeters to spare.
