Only four stars because installation was horrible. Does a good job even in the small Milo case!

Really hard to fit cables in after mounting this cooler.

Runs 30C on idle / 70C stress test in the Node 202. Backplate still fits vertically, fits fine with low profile RAM. No clearance issues with dust filter on the case. Very happy with it

For low clearance this does a great job, not the most quiet but definitely keeps the CPU cool. Adjusting the fan curves has some impact on the noise. Would still recommend though.

from completed build Node 202 - The Challenger
CPU Cooler: The Big Shuriken 2 is by far the best heatsink for the 12cm noctua fan. It has a lot of heatpipes and a very good dissipation surface. Another challenge here, I had to cut it a bit in order for the 44mm height ram to fit. The cpu fan is 1cm higher than the case.

from completed build Clean, mean killing node 202 machine!
In the begin in used Noctua NH-L9i with a 140mm noctua fan above it. After reading otherbuilds I decided to go for the Big Shuriken. I replaced the fan with a noctua 15mm and I am very happy with the outcome!

from completed build The olive hater's TU100B
Upgraded to the Big Shuriken 2 rev. b. after having used the Cryorig C7 in my TU100B. Went from having to disable turbo boost in order to stay under 80C in OCCT to now having boost enabled as well as RAM overclocked and hitting averages of 75C with momentary spikes into the low 80s. I couldn't be happier. Did require some modding of the case, but that's hardly a fault of the CPU cooler :). Tried "upgrading" the stock fan with he Noctua A12x15, but surprisingly the Noctua fans had worse thermal performance in this use-case than the stock Scythe fan, and acoustically there was a negligible difference between the two. Scythe really made a great product here, imo.

Keeps my APU cool. A little large for a mini ITX board. Quiet enough but not silent by far.

Almost silent on idle and makes little noise on highload

from completed build A Node 202 with two 3.5" HDDs
Very nice cooler despite it being a tad bit tall. It is possible to leave the CPU fan filter in the Node and screw the cover on, but I didn't want to put extra, un-necessary pressure on the CPU. In the future, I may trim a magnetic fan filter and fit it within the air intake.
