Can be tricky to install

Summary: The downward pointing fan is incredibly efficient and the included fan is near silent. I was skeptical of this design because of the fact that it blows the hot air right back down onto the CPU, but I'm using two of these in a server on 10-core Xeon processors and they rarely get above 50 C.
Summary: Any rating I put here would not be fair because this cooler was just not designed for my system. I had hoped that this cooler would work in my 3U server chassis, but the Intel i7-2600k processor is just too much. The CPU was running in the 70s under heavy video editing loads.
Summary: It was bigger than I expected but it still fit inside of a Dell 620s slim PC. I have to take a star for the almost comically small instructions but if you have experience with CPU coolers it's pretty standard stuff.
Summary: For the money this is an excellent CPU cooler. The way it connects to the mobo isn't as good as some other Coolermaster fans and the clips that hold the fan to the fins are a little tricky to take on and off. It is very lite and doesn't take up too much space.
Summary: This gemini is really really sexy and it sounds really really good. You can also hook up a 140mm if you wanted. Only issue that I had with it is the fact that I had it on my old 8120 and under prime 95 on stock it would get up to lik 85c.
Summary: This is a great cooler master fan. I am a fan of cooler master. Ha, a fan. Anyways, If you are using this for a mini ITX then it could be good but not for a very small one. The fan is a bit to large. No exactly mini ITX.
Summary: Pros: dead silent unless you get right up next to it -- seriously, it's almost dead quiet. __Perfect__ for a small case, such as a home theater PC (HTPC). Cons: instructions are pretty awful -- very tiny print, and lots of parts included to allow it to work across many different socket types.
