5 out of 5 eggsThey need to make more of these!

Pros: It cools.... Massively It will take almost any heat you throw at it, with the fan on I have never saturated it to the point where it did nothing and without the fan with any reasonable use even gaming, as a passive heatsink I would not expect any issues. I love the design, I would change maybe 2 things and thats about it.

Cons: the fan... it is a cheap rather poor design, and I know about moving air, it was my job to know how (working with jet engines) I would have went with with a 9 bladed style with almost the same shape of blades and pitch/ geometry these ones with the air gaps between cause vorticies and do cause vibrations that lead to noise/wear also for the rpm speed it is not moving as much air as quietly as a fan of that size could. Secondly the pipe should be facing the other direction, not pointing over the memory, as it is the fan does not allow alot of air over the memory, and the pipes will prevent memory with larger heat spreading solutions on them.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfect! (for me)

Pros: "Perfect" cooling. Processor runs at the temperature of the outlying case. (which is somewhat high in my system at 55C). Since you cant cool a heatsink more than the surrounding air temp, this is "perfect".
Silent, when not on high-fan speed. Since the cooling is so good, I have no need to turn the fan all the way up.
Mounted surprisingly easy without removing motherboard from computer, on an AMD AM3 board, and in a Nexus case. I needed to remove the powersupply to reach the clip, however.
Surprisingly light for its size. Since the main heatsink is aluminum, and only the heat pipes and processor module is copper, this thing is not too bulky. With the giant fan, aluminum is fine.

Cons: Huge. This thing is big, measure your case before purchasing, or use Newegg's fantastic return policy and restock fee. I needed to move my video card to the middle slot for this to fit. I have no need for SLI, so I am fine with this.
3 pin fan connector. Does not have the pwm pin that the newer fans support.
Will not be silent if fan is turned up all the way.

Other Thoughts: Has a dial to control the fan speed. I don't use it since it cools so well on a medium setting. Some people might find this annoying, others might prefer this.

5 out of 5 eggsIf you've got the room...

Pros: Massive - 140mm running at low speed will be almost silent and still provide massive cooling.

Pretty - Blue LEDs add a nice touch.

Looks cool - the package is really quite stunning and sturdy.

Somewhat easy install on an AM2/AM2+/AM3 motherboard - no replacement of bracket required.

Cons: Massive - the pipes have less then 5mm clearance from RAM slot 1; fan has same clearance from top exhaust in Antec Nine Hundred II enclosure.

Speed control could be a bit longer than the few inches it provides so that you could have it on the outside of the case.

Other Thoughts: This fits well in an Antec Nine Hundred II. Be careful to check how close your RAM slots are to your motherboard. When installing, make sure to plug in the power for the CPU fan FIRST before securing it.

5 out of 5 eggsBig Freezer

Pros: Cool cool and cooler is all i can say about this fan..cpu stays around 27-32 degrees celsius no matter what i am doing..

Cons: it is rather large and somewhat cumbersome to work with but it is a whopping 140mm fan..does exactly as only complaint that it comes with a blue led..wish it were red only because of my case..the light issue isnt anything that takes away from this cooler..

Other Thoughts: i have a mid tower..thermaltake v9..i almost didnt get this cooler bc everyone raved about how big it is..i got it installed with plenty of room to spare..

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing CPU Cooler

Pros: Great fan, keeps my CPU at 27-30C under normal loads, and maybe 10C more under very heavy loads. Power cable for the fan is split for a speed control knob.

Cons: Semi loud on its own, but that's to be expected, and I run mine at full speed all the time. I play my music really loud, so I don't even notice it and tune it out otherwise.

Other Thoughts: This fan is HUGE; this isn't a problem for me as my case is also huge, but make sure it will fit in your case before purchasing. Also, the fact that my case has 6 fans *might* help, slightly..

3 out of 5 eggsthermaltake BigTyp 14Pro

Pros: Plenty of cooling power, relatively quiet and looks cool too.

Cons: BIG is the key word here. This thing is massive. I've installed it in a Silerstone TJ07 which is a rather large case. Mobo is an Asus Rampage Formula. I had a lot of difficulties connecting cables in the area of the cooler. It took me about an hour to get both of the CPU power cables connected. I have lots of nicks on my hands right now from the cooler fins. If you do not have a huge case do not buy this cooler. On the other hand, if you have a huge case, need the cooling power and don't mind the work, go for it. It is a nice cooler.

Other Thoughts: Did I mention that this thing is HUGE. It's size is the only reason I did not give it a high score. As always, Newegg rocks.

5 out of 5 eggsHuge and Cold

Pros: This thing puts out alot of air. sitting at 19°C idle and 36°C under 100% load. running a AMD Phenom 9950 quadcore overclocked to 3.0. overclocked to 3.2 i sat idle at 29°C and 44°C max load. take this compared to the stock heatsink that came with my cpu which sat at 32°C idle and at max load it overheated to 61°C
so this thing keeps it crazy cool

Cons: HUGE! just barely clears my ram. Make sure to measure out your case before you buy this beast.

Technically a pro, but this thing doesnt hum as bad as i expected at 100% speeds. if your used to the sound of 4 120mm fans running it wont seem like much more

Other Thoughts: i found it hard to do anything inside the case after placing this thing in it, so make sure this is the last thing you need to do.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fan!

Pros: Moves a ton of air. My case is now running about 20-30*F cooler than before (my case is now 33*C at idle).
My CPU now idles at 38*C. The CPU is an AMD Athlon x2 6000+.

This is a great fan, even if it is expensive.

Cons: HUGE

Other Thoughts: Make sure it fits your case before you buy it. I've heard of some people having to switch RAM slots due to its size. I did not have to however.
