Though not advertised, contact Phanteks for AM4 bracket. They responded immediately to me--make sure it fits when you get it! It is also possible the unit itself already has an AM4 bracket in its hardware kit, so double-check.

Very good cooler; on par with NH-D15. Note that the fan cables are long and can be a hassle to route properly.

This cooler is super quiet. Haven't gotten into OCing anything yet. But so far very good.

Installation was straightforward and easy, but this cooler is incredibly large and bulky. It makes it very difficult to install motherboard headers from constantly trying to work around this thing. Be very cautious of your case and motherboard size, there were a few system fan headers that I was completely unable to access from this cooler's size.

Great cpu cooler for air cooling. Keeps a 6700k overclocked to 4.6 Ghz @ 1.30 Volts under 60 degrees all the time.

This product gets a 5/5 from me not only because it's a fantastic product, but because of their customer support. This product does everything you expect it to do (including it's ability to get in the way), and it does it all in an excellent fashion (except the getting in the way part). It has fantastic fans, mounting hardware, packaging, and aesthetics. And it manages to be "large and in charge" without being too excessively so. You can even downsize the fans of you want to improve RAM or case compatibility, as the fan clips will work with 120mm fans. And I think you lose your first PCIe slot (or you may just have to use a card with a backplate), but as I have nothing to plug into that first PCIe slot, I can't comment.
I called their technical support regarding an issue with the mounting hardware (a hole was drilled crooked, preventing installation), and my call was picked up by a person. After a brief chat, I was directed to fill out a support request on their website, and that if I filled it out, and sent in my proof of purchase within the next hour, Phanteks could have my replacement pieces shipped out by the end of the day. So I filled it out, called customer service again (I even got the same service rep), emailed them my invoice, and within 2 business days, I had my replacement part. It fit, and the cooler is performing fantastically.
