Doesn't cool properly
Cons: I installed this cooler hoping it would do the job. Couldn't get past the start up screen since it said my CPU was over heating. I saw that my CPU was heating up to 70 degrees C and shut it off afraid I would ruin my new i7 processor. I ended up purchasing the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan Cooler. Immediately it dropped the temperature to 30 degrees.

Meh...spend the extra for better cooling, or keep stock
Pros: The price. Can't say how it compares to the stock CPU cooler, as I installed this with my i7 920 (not overclocked) when I first got the CPU itself.
Cons: Unimpressive performance under load. Granted, I am in a hot room/climate (90-95 F ambient temp), but it's pretty excessive.

Do NOT buy this.
Pros: It's cheap.
Cons: Tried this when stock Intel i7 920 fan was damaged during shipping. Core temps, with the thermal paste provided with this fan, well going well over 60C idle and up to a very dangerous 100C when under load.

Repairs and replacements can be costly.
