Pros: Overall, should be a very nice CPU cooler.
Cons: Instructions are totally inadequate. For Intel CPU it says "Install nuts in a diagonal sequence." Wish that I could as the bolts turn as the nuts are tightened and the cooler cannot be installed with enough tension for addeptable CPU contact. Ran at 61 degrees with no load and cool garage environ...
Summary: Are we really dealing with a pwm fan here or is cooler master playing with it's customers? If you notice they have three other fans that are three pin but, recommended as replacements for their high end cpu coolers. hmmm.
Pros: 1 egg for design 1 egg for newegg 0 eggs for cooler master
Cons: Follow up review: While the four pin PWM does work, the fan spins up loud and unbalanced. Just moving my case caused the fan become unbalanced and rattle. After wake up from sleep the fan will rev up and rattle. A month later and I'm still tweaking bios to shut this mother up! lol
