Pros: Low noise, low profile
Silicon corner pads
No PWM "churning" noice.
Cons: Could they offer just the fan for $5 less?
Other Thoughts: I would never try to cool my 125W TDP FX-8350 with this fan. I got a 212 EVO for that right away. However, the 8350's cooler with this fan mounted on top of it does a real nice job on a mini-itx HTPC build with a 45W TDP A8-7600 APU.
Noctura's custom PWM IC suppresses the annoying PWM "churning" noise that other fans I tried had.

No cap to lose
Cons: Not that fast, but that's not why I bought this.
Other Thoughts: Newegg's combo deal for 3 makes them only 3 bucks each. Just what I was looking for. They hold enough for Windows ISOs or other frequently installed programs. My recent builds don't include optical disc drives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Speed, G.Skill reliability, heatsinks, easy to install.
Cons: None - it works at advertised speeds after selecting the XMP profile in my board's bios.
Other Thoughts: 2133mhz is the optimum speed for maximizing graphics performance in the AMD A8-7600 APU that this ram is paired with.
I've used at least a dozen pairs of G.Skill ram in the last 5 years and never had one problem.
