Pros: It's been wrecking everything I through at it. Haven't attempted to OC this yet as I'm waiting on a few parts for upgrades first. Drivers seem to be acceptable and haven't had any issue with it. In my loop under a 15 minute burn in stress test using Furmark it only reached 51c. Normally it runs around mid 30c.
Cons: Only comes with barbs. Might not be a big deal to some but I prefer compression. Had to pick up extra fittings, not worth taking an egg off though.
Other Thoughts: I picked this up on 2/16/2014 and wrote this review 3/27/2014.
