Pros: Excellent cooling over previous coolers. Easy to install, Very quiet for the size.
Cons: None that I can see. If you plan your build you should have fun putting together a machine with this as the cooler.
Other Thoughts: Easy to install if you plan your build. It fits nicely in the Cooler Master case. Ram installed after cooler was easy if you don't buy RAM with fancy long fins because they look cool. 4 Sticks of AMD Radeon 2133 Gamer series installed just fine with cooler in place in the closest ram slots. Easiest cooler I ever installed on a Gigabyte X79 Socket 2011 mobo.
I saw one review that docked eggs because the contact plate was not polished but with a rough surface. DUH. The rough surface creates more surface area for your heat transfer paste. It is much more efficient than a "polished" surface.
This review is from: Fractal Design Define Mini Black Silent MATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Solid build. Plenty drive bays. Excellent case and CPU cooling capabilities. Styling is very good.
Cons: The only con I came up with is that the entire front panel comes off pretty easy. With the way the cables are snaked through the chassis the connections to the front panel plugs they unplug and you have to open the case, unplug the onboard connectors and give yourself enough slack to plug them back into the front panel again. This should have a clip connector on it so it only comes off when you want to take it off (for cleaning)
Other Thoughts: This is not a micro sized case. It is a case for microATX boards. It has six drive bays are perfect for my MS Home Server RAID array. With the sound deadening construction and multiple cooling options makes it a good choice for this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: None whatsoever.
Cons: Addendum to earlier review. This is for ASUS support. Made to fill out a pre authorization. After that told to call number with authorization number. 1 hour and 20 minutes on the phone holding before I hung up in disgust without ever speaking to a human. ASUS has the lousiest customer service I have witnessed recently. I will never buy from ASUS again. Not because their products sometimes fail but because their customer service is non existant. If they think they are so good at customer service ask them how come it is so hard to get.
Other Thoughts: Asus touts their customer service. Another fairy tail from a place that has NO direct contact with customer service and makes you jump through hoops to even get on a queue and wait and wait and wait...until you give up in disgust.READ FULL REVIEW
