Pros: Largish fan that fit my ASUS P8Z77-M PRO motherboard perfectly, for those wondering if it will fit on a smaller m-ATX board. It clears RAM and every other important component without getting in the way. Great design and quite pretty to look at (if you're into that)!
Cons: Installing this into an LGA 1155 socket over an Intel i5-3570k was sweat-provoking. It takes a ton of pressure to secure the second side over the plastic latch on the bracket. It is easier when you use a flatheaded screwdriver, but not having built a computer in 7-8 years, I was completely scared that I was going to crush something! Granted, I'm not a burly man-type (quite female last I checked), so maybe my feminine strength (none) had something to do with this. No o...
Pros: Looks ba'as and I can barely hear it! This thing running at 100% is more quiet than the fans I use to cool my 3.6GHz OC Phenom 960 machine at all idle. I just keep this fan at 100% since it's so quiet and keeps on the heat so well. The cpu never gets above 32*C under a full load, and at these speeds, the amount of air coming from the cold CPU heatsink cools the rest of the computer. It's also extremely low profile and will work in MicroATX desktop builds!
Cons: Too shiny. It's so spinny-shiny! Seriously though, what could you complain about?
Pros: Works great and installed with little problem. Did need a bit of force to get it to clip on but who wants it loose anyway? The LED is nice, not too bright. I personally didn't notice any problem with noise either, no louder then any other fan I have.
Cons: It might just be the layout of my foxconn board but the fan does cover up the first ram slot so if your using ram with heat fins it won't fit. Not a big deal but something to keep in mind.
