Pros: Good for a budget PC build
Cons: Only 1 mobo worked. RMA'd with Gigabyte and they "Repaird" it, but it it wasn't fixed. Same issues.
Now I have a paperweight and have spent a month trying to get this resolved. Beware Gigabyte customer service!
Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these for 2 builds for my family. The first one worked great. The 2nd one was defective out of the box. The video components were bad, and would not accept the drivers, and the restart/shutdown process would not complete. RMA'd with Gigabyte. Had to eat the shipping to them, but still saved overall on the kit I bought. Gigabyte support was rather slow. Took 2 weeks to get a "repaired" board back (the same one!). I've spent a month trying to get this to work and nothing. BEWARE GIGABYTE CUSTOMER SERVICE! WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET A REPLACEMENT FROM THE MANUFACTURER?
1 egg is about right but only because 1 board worked.
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: Does awesome job with keeping CPU cool under load.
Flexible arrangement options. (multiple fan mount options, can set left/right or up/down airflow configuration)
Cons: Universal Mounting Bracket didn't fit the case.
Blade edges are sharp. Handle with care or you can cut yourself.
Other Thoughts: I took one egg off for the universal bracket. The AMD screw holes caused it to be too big for my case. I had to cut part of the sheeting in the case to get it to fit. Had this come with 2 seperate mounting brackets (one for Intel, one for AMD) this should have fit perfect and I would have had no issues. This turned a 30 minute tops process into a several hour process where I had to tear out the entire PC, mod my case, and rebuild it.
Otherwise, this heatsink is awesome. I'm running an i7 960 at full load and never getting over 50C. Now I have room to OC this baby!
Pros: Works as advertised...for a year
Cons: Bulky cables, but to be expected from a non-modular supply.
Died after 13 months.
Other Thoughts: PSU fried on month 13. Smoke and nasty smell came with it. It also zapped my hard drive with it. So instead of just replacing the PSU, I had to get a new hard drive and start from scratch.READ FULL REVIEW
