Pros: Works great for my Ubuntu 13.04 HTPC build. A lot of fan headers for a mATX board. Good amount of SATA ports for a NAS box. The heat sinks on the chip sets seemed very sturdy (I've often had issues in the past with them being loose). It lined up perfectly with the case screw holes and I/O panel.
Cons: Front panel headers were difficult to read, but that's always the biggest pain of any build, so no loss of an egg there. The socket didn't have an protective covering on it, which I thought was odd...no big deal though.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this for a Linux build. I'm sure it does just great with Windows too.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Noctua NH-C12P SE14 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
Pros: I got this solely because it matched very well with the redwood case it was going in (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811204039) It's completely silent. Very easy to install for AMD (the Intel looked to be kind of a pain though). Relatively low profile for a 140mm fan.
Cons: I just wish the heat spreader and pipes where copper, but I didn't take an egg off since it keeps my CPU very cool.
Other Thoughts: Overall a great heat sink fan. Quiet, cool, easy too install, and attractive. I highly recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
