Summary: -Excellent cooler -price point a little high for expected performance, (Silver arrow or Noctua dh-14 will outperform) -Aesthetically pleasing - Not worth the high msrp but cools incredibly
Pros: Great thermal performance, The polished lower surface and Adjustable surface pressure serve to greatly reduce thermal resistance across the gap, making thermal paste performance less of an issue than other, non-polished, coolers.
The Fins and sharp edges are designed to create turbulent air flow...
Cons: -LARGE, will cover one ram slot on 1155 board if fan is facing the ram
-Requires backing plate on board to hold increased mounting pressure (Requires removal of motherboard unless your case is designed for back-plate install)
