Pros: This fan is the best there is that I have ever come across hands down. It is pretty darn quite as far as noise makers go and dose the job of keeping my computer nice and cool. For the CFM this fan pushes out v.s. the amount of noise it is a not even a question if you should get it or not. Just buy the fan and I am pretty sure you too will be happy with it. I work with 3DS Max and do some hard core gaming and this thing is the only fan in my system. So yes just buy it. It works the best for the size vs noise ratio.
Cons: Cons, I can't think of any. It comes with all the hardware you need and everything. Can't get better. So no cons, just positives. If they could make a fan that works even better in the way of keeping noise volume even lower, I'd buy it but really they did a great job with this one.
Other Thoughts: I'd buy from this company again in a hart beat if they make one that tops this one. Hands down best case fan.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The processor will get everything you want done without the use of a extra video card. If you are not gaming with the processor it runs very cool. Once you start gaming with it however it is an entirely different story all together.
Cons: Runs very hot if it's not cooled with fans or a liquid cooled system when playing certain games. Games is about the only time when you are really going to start putting it through a real test. However it dose run everything like a champ. But you will easily burn it out if you don't have it running on a liquid cooled system or with some fans inside. So for those who want a completely silent system this may not be the one for you unless you don't play games that are very CPU / GPU intensive on resources.
Other Thoughts: Should have ordered a large case fan for when playing games to cool of my fan-less heat-sink with because it sure dose need it. Can't play for long with out one. Overall however great buy for the dollar and can't beat AMD for price point. still an A+ buyREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: The heat-sink works very well. Under normal operating conditions it runs between 40 to 42 degrees C. It all depends on your room temperature though because it can run as low as 32 to 34 degrees as well. If you were to strap a couple fans on it I am sure it would easily beat anything out there on the market.
I love not having a jet engine taking off beside me as I work. The 0 noise is fantastic.
Cons: The straps they send you and the instructions I do not find to be the best if your using it on a AMD AMM3 Board. Take my advise and use the strap that came with your original AMD AM3 heat sink on your new heat sink and you should be fine. Other wise you'll end up with a paper weight because the strap they send you is to tight and will bend your pipes if you use it. That is what I think anyways.
No need to mess around with a back plate if your board already has one.
Other Thoughts: A word of advise is to run a program that allows you to monitor the heat coming off your CPU and to keep an eye on it. Every once and a while make sure to blow it out with a can of compressed air to keep it clean and working correctly.READ FULL REVIEW
