Pros: Good cooling capacity. Nice and quite operation. Using this on LGA1156 board in a small HTPC case.
Cons: Backplate for necessary for LGA1156 socket can pose problems with some Gigabyte motherboards. My motherboard, GA-H55N-USB3 (rev. 1.0) has a couple of chips on the underside of the board, right next to the CPU cooler attachment holes so the backplate presses on a couple of those chips.
Pros: Low power, small form factor, silent, decent CPU speed for HTPC
Cons: What a nightmare to get anything installed with this board. Not the installation process itself but getting any kind of drive to boot with this. It just keeps going into a perpetual reboot look at the Gigabyte bios Logo.
