Pros: Is very quite, easy to install, and keeps my 2500k below 60c on load. Comes with the ACK-I5361 bracket for better motherboard/CPU compatibility. Also price is rather affordable.
Cons: Doesn't give you the option to mount dual fans on the HSF but by no grounds would deserve to knock an egg off for that since I knew you can't add a second fan without modification.
Other Thoughts: Rebate form sent in the mail. Will re-visit this review section after I have received my rebate. Will also post on other review sites when I get the time. :]READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XIGMATEK ACK-I5361 Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Compatible Bracket Set
Pros: Not much to say... it's a bracket set.
Cons: The need to purchase a bracket set for a cooler.
After using the HSF for some time I can see where the back bracket could superglue itself to the mobo causing trace leads to rip off removing it. So be sure to take your undivided time removing the back bracket after installing this.
Other Thoughts: @justinco I just bought the Dark Night which came with this bracket set. I also have the Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 motherboard. You have to use the 775 side of the back bracket and line the holes up matching the 775 holes on the other side of the mobo. It fits perfect for this board so not sure why you had issues mounting your HSF. That said don't always believe another persons review. I *almost* didn't get this cooler due to your review but couldn't pass up the deal I got on the HSF + bracket set (cheaper than the cost of this bracket set... so free HSF lol).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast memory!! Got it on sale but not here. That said however I got it on sale so only reason I bought these pair. Cas of 8 or 9 for $50 cheaper is just as good unless of course you can get them on sale. Wink Wink
Cons: None. G.Skill always never lets me down.
Other Thoughts: @ZiRiS below. The RAM isn't running @ 800Mhz. It runs at 1600Mhz. Just because CPU-Z or other similar software reports it @ 800Mhz it really is 800Mhz x 2 = 1600Mhz.READ FULL REVIEW
