This review is from: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
Pros: HUGE!! Yes, huge is both a pro and a con. The size of this thing does prove its cooling power. Keeps my i7 4770K under 30c at idle and at or below 65c under full load (prime95, performance test, pcmark, 3dmark). In fact, the temps just keep getting better as time passes. Also the fans are super quiet. Installation was a breeze.
Cons: HUGE!!! It's not free. The fan color is odd.
Other Thoughts: It's huge so prior planning and compatibility are key. Installs with risers so RAM compatibility should not be an issue.

WD Black 1TB
Pros: Great look and finish. Keys feel strong and sturdy. Led brightness level is changeable and can be turned off completely. One touch media keys are very convenient.
Cons: Led does not have 100% coverage. Few of the keys (i.e., Tab, Caps Lock, Shift, Delete) are not completely lit. Occasionally, pressing a key is not recognized or there is a slight (ms) lag. Need to figure out if this is the board or perhaps USB issue.
Other Thoughts: Had the keyboard for few days, so far I really like the look and feel of it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Simple installation. Very fast read and write speeds. Boots to Windows in a flash.
Cons: It wasn't free.
Other Thoughts: Just get it.READ FULL REVIEW
