This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes
Pros: 5 heat pipes, copper base, dual fans push/pull configuration, easy installation since I now owned 4 of CM line of coolers (Hyper212, Evo, Gemin4, and this one). None have fail yet.
Cons: In mini-itx build, clearance constraints, but I know that when I bought it. Some people might have trouble installing due to motherboard layout, RAM locations, socket locations, etc.
Other Thoughts: Research is your best friend. Took me hours of measuring and research before settling on this. So I installed this a few days ago on a Asrock Z87 mini-itx MB & Corsair Obsidian 250D mini-itx case. It barely fits with 1/16" (1.56mm) to spare from heat pipes to top cover of case. It's around 37 degrees C on idle. Well, I would like to be around 28-31c, but it's okay I guess. Lastly, it hasn't BQQed my I7 4770s yet.READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: 2 thumb screws to hold PSU. WIsh there were 4. other than that, no problems.
