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."
