Pros: Efficient cooling and quiet fan. Fits in tight low profile chassis. Multi-fit. Reasonably priced .
Cons: More expensive than simpler products. The plastic pegs that fasten the assembly to the motherboard are fragile.
Other Thoughts: I installed an XPS 8500 mainboard in an aftermarket case, and this cooler was a perfect fit. Surprisingly, despite its sophistication, it was cheaper than the OEM unit.
Would buy again.
Pros: Fast and compatible with old Foxconn 740 motherboard. Easy install.
Cons: More expensive than some competing products.
Other Thoughts: I installed one of these in an old Regor X2 (Foxconn motherboard) and cloned over the original Windows 7 Professional partition using TrueImage. There were no problems with recognition and all the lags of the aging 320gb Seagate spindle drive were gone.
I didn't bother with the bundled software, so I can't comment on it.
Pros: Modest size, no PCIe power connector needed, quiet fan and cool-running. DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort connectors.
Other Thoughts: I have one of these installed in a Dell XPS 8500 and it has been exemplary. It's not a high-end gaming card, but it is not advertised as such.READ FULL REVIEW
