Cooler Master FLOP

Pros: Looks like the Cooler master Evo 212
Cons: Instead of a CPU bracket, Cooler Master decided to use Intel-style Push locks for this cpu cooler. Horrible decision. The plastic tips are prone to getting bent and once they are bent, they don't go into the motherboard hole correctly. My i5 4690K idles around 55 C and under load it tops out at 8...
Excerpt: Keeps a 4690k beautifully cool under even the heaviest of loads (an hour of Intel Burn Test in Very High didn't exceed 55C). The fan attachment mechanism is really neat, and it comes with extra rubber pads and another attachment set so you can use push/pull - which was pretty awesome.
Summary: Although the TX3 being universal CPU Cooler it didn't really tell me specifically how to install it on a 1150 CPU Socket. It also didn't help that there wasn't a video on YouTube telling you how to do it ether. and i kinda struggled with the installation on for about... two hours?
Pros: -Universal Socket Fit (From what i've seen in the box and i can confirm this.) -Can Install a 2nd fan (You can opt to not use the fan that it comes with and instead use two different 92mm fans. And if those break down you can replace them easily!) -Simplistic in design.
Cons: -Hard Installation for 1st time builders. -Somewhat large (Look at the 212 evo or the V8 GTS for size comparison.) -Only takes 92mm fans (This one was more of a personal con but not a lot of companies make a lot of 92mm Fans. I just decided to get another fan just like the one that came on the TX3.)
Summary: The fan was a little loud and it eventually bugged me enough where i removed it and thought i would see how it does with the air moving in the case. I used Prime95 for about 4 hours and adjusted the fan settings for the case through the motherboard's bios to only start to adjust speeds to a higher...
Pros: I loved the way this thing looked. To me it was aesthetically pleasing. - not to tall nor wide. - Not heavy at all - Loved the fan mounting brackets. - Handled heat very well at stock settings on a i5-3470
