Enermax ETS-T40-VD  CPU Cooler  With VEGAS DUO PWM Twister Bearing Fan Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM2/FM1/AM3+

Pros: Keeps my i5 2500k extremely cool. I've OCed the CPU from 3.3ghz to 4.0ghz and it idles at around 39 degrees celsius. Even with heavy usage I haven't noticed it exceed the mid 40's in temp. This fan is extremely huge, beware.

Cons: Doesn't fit in my full tower Sunbeam Transformer case without a few adjustments, i.e., I had to disconnect one of the side panel fans, as a notch on the CPU cooler sits inside of it. It would probably be better to remove that fan, but eh.. As long as it's not spinning it poses no real threat. So, definitely beware with side panel fans. Be sure you have the capacity.

Pros: Big, nice side panel design.

Cons: Extremely cheap. When putting together the case I had to smash the front in because the power switch wasn't working. Works now, but still that was annoying. The case fans are INCREDIBLY LOUD, and are also total piles of garbage. The top fan died within a few months. I replaced every fan in there, and now it is quiet as a dog whistle.

There is also nothing to help with cable management in this case. Most people feed their cables through the back and bring them back in, while zip tying the remainder in the back. There is no where to feed the cables through once you get them back there, there is also NOWHERE to zip tie any of the cables in the back. The whole thing is just a disaster. Would be much better with more cable management options, considering this is a "Show-off" case. Unfortunately, it's extremely poor quality.

Other Thoughts: I purchase this case for $69.00, mainly for it's design and LED lights. The green cathode broke the first day I had it. I had to splice some wires to get it working again. I guess the price really was "too good" to be true in my case, once again.

I'll be purchasing a new case, with better cable management options, that is a higher quality package overall. This thing is cheap flimsy, fans suck, LED lights are "OK", aside from the cathode, which was awful.

Get something else if you can, unless you want to replace nearly everything and have horrible cable management options.

Pros: Great fan, nice heat dispensing, beautiful lights with lots of options. Cools wonderfully, brought my CPU temperature down 20 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cons: HUGE!!! If you're using a Sunbeam Transformer case you could potentially face problems. I guess it would depend on your motherboard as well. However, in my particular case I had to turn off the bottom left side panel fan because it would hit the Enermax CPU Fan. Which wasn't an issue for me, I still have the other fan to use. Unfortunately I bought two new fans though. :P Keep that in mind if you're using a Sunbeam Transformer case.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic purchase. Now I just need a different case with different fan placement, should be all set.
