Pros: good size/price. Have yet to install. Just checked actual drive model # to see if previous post is a prob. Found usefule info on HST site:

Pros: Excellent mounting kit; included rubber spacers to keep pressure off the MB circuitry on the back of a P8Z77-I deluxe. Included TIM and fan are both very good. 2500K @ 4.6/1.36v runs OCCT/Linpack 70C max. Gaming max 50C (with a 7970 @ 1025 in a Bitfenix Prodigy case).
Cons: Documentation for mount holes on the backing plate did not seem to match the actual holes in the backing plate. Easy to figure out, though.
Other Thoughts: Tight clearance for memory and for the DIGI-VRM daughterboard on the P8Z77-I. Tight fits are the norm for mITX gaming builds. Plenty of room in the Prodigy for the cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
