This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII S524 - CPU Cooler with Aluminum Fins and 5 Heatpipes
Pros: This thing keeps your CPU seriously cold. The fan it comes with is nice due to it's "wavey-ness", so it catches little dust. The option to put a bigger fan on is nice too. My cpu never goes over 45c with intense use.
Cons: It's huge! Make sure you have a case with sufficient space, because you'll need it! Must have a 4 pin connection on your MOBO, otherwise the fan controller with freak out and may give you an error saying the fan is not working..... If you can even boot, since most BIOS's have CPU prevention when it doesn't detect the fan.
Other Thoughts: Due to it's bulkiness it's kind of hard to mount the motherboard since you have to put this heatsink on first. Also, if you're ram is in the right spot you can place the overhang right over it (if you're sticks aren't protruding to far. e.g. heatsinks on the top of them) & cool them as well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It has 3 fans!! If you're lucky enough to have a vent on the bottom (or top, depending on how your case's PSU set is) it's great to stick that fan there to pull cool air from underneath. The fan control is nice too. Solid power!
Cons: Not modular. So, cable management is pretty weak. Also, a switch to be able to turn off the light at night would be nice.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For the price It's a solid video card & has been running strong for quite some time now. I have always loved ASUS products.
Cons: It's a bit long for some cases. I actually have to cut some of the shroud off to get it to fit into my case. So make sure to measure the area where your PCI-e slot is.READ FULL REVIEW
