Pros: Ok so I havnt even really thought to keep track of how fast my PC starts up...its just not something i think about anymore. i just press the power button and its on.
very easy to use for a first time build, plug in the SATA and the power cord and install your OS...done and done.
Other Thoughts: first SSD ive ever used, so we will see how it does over time. just installing my OS on this guy for now. I dont see a whole lot of reason to installing any games or other programs to this drive.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 140mm and 120mm SSO CPU Cooler
Pros: Max cpu temp ive seen after bench tests and stress testing with various programs/games is 59.5 C (the fans didnt even have to speed up more than about 800 RPM)
very straight-forward installation and the included thermal glue appeared to be of high quality.
printed instructions were easy to follow.
Cons: So this thing is huge. please make sure you visit Nactua's website and follow the links to verify the motherboard your pairing with this fan is compatible. with my mother board i had to be very careful to install the ram because i did this after i had already secured the heat sink and fans in place. (you might want to look into installing components that will be around this heat sink prior to putting the glue and screws in)
Other Thoughts: this is my very first custom built personal computer, and im very pleased i went with this fan.
I didnt put this in the cons section because its most likely due to operator error...that being said: Im pairing this with an ASUS P9X79 WS motherboard, and i got a CPU fan error until i went into the bios and set the low cpu fan alarm setpoint below 200 rpm. no worries though, never had temps get above 60c.
