Pros: I don't know, didn't use.
Cons: Horrible plastic mounting pins. Not screws, plastic tabs that plug into the mobo. Upon receipt, one of the tabs was badly bent. Also, you have to put so much pressure on them to get them into the mobo that I was afraid I was going to break the board.
Cons: Big. It just barely fits my rig, and pushes my RAM over a little. Almost knocked an egg for this, but working is working... The AMD mounting hardware is a bit cheesy, but seems to be working just fine.
Summary: Paired this with Intel i7, great choice and no issues even when overclocking my CPU. This is great choice if you don't want to install back plate for other 3rd party coolers. Easy install, took me about 5 mins.
Pros: 1st off, Newegg shipping is great, ordered and selected free shipping, received item next day. This cooler does a great job of cooling my I7 4790k, 4ghz. Temps stay low at all times. Cooler is easy to install.
Cons: Only con is I had to move my memory sticks to accommodate the size of this cooler. Even after moving them, the cooler stills brushes up against one of the sticks of RAM.
Pros: None. It will not install properly on an AM3+ processor.
Cons: This cooler was designed to be installed on an Intel processor. I installed it on an AMD FX 8320 processor using the provided brackets, and, when I attempted to boot the system, the processor very quickly heated up to 72 degrees plus and the system shut down. I removed the cooler, installed new paste (Arctic MX2) with the same results. I removed the cooler, which looks similar to the Arctic 64 that I have used on other builds but has the crummy bracket. (Incidentally,...
Summary: Excellent product! Anybody who has used their stock CPU fan knows that it starts screaming when the movies, games, or multi processes begin. I was using the stock cooler for a Vishera FX-8320 and simply playing YouTube videos would cause it to scream. After a few months of putting up with this, I decided it was time to upgrade. I bought this item after reading various reviews on message boards and on here.
