The Prolimatech MK-26 is a humongous cooler design that also provides huge temperature decreases while operating silently when paired with the right fans. The instructions weren't always clear but covered the main issues so if you are good at putting things together then this won't be a problem. If you are a novice though, you might want to find a friend to help or have a second means of getting help. Installing the heat sinks for the memory and VRM is pretty typical (peel and stick), and only four spring-retention screws hold the heat sink to the card. Despite the massive size, this cooler is completely independent to the system with the graphics card: no cables being ran to auxiliary power or coolant lines or anything else.
