Pros: I run an overclocked AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor with 2 game clients running, skype, vent, and VLC media playing a movie the highest the CPU temp has gotten was 46 degree.
Overall the cooler does its job and does it well.
Cons: First CM might want to think about a better mounting set up for the screws can easily strip the threads out of the radiator :/ but if you have any DYI capabilities you just need to find a slightly larger screw which is fully threaded and use a few nuts to keep it together nice and snug so all the weight is being supported at each end of the bolts.
Second the fans that came with the cooler suck in my opinion. being with what these cooling systems are mostly going to be used for some better fans should be sent with it. I switched my fans out with some variable speed hydro cougar fans which run virtually silent.
The last con might be just that the pump could be dying. The sound of the pump sometimes is there sometimes is not and can vary on how loud with some days being bad enough to where i can hear it through my over the ear headphones but I will just get it replaced.
Other Thoughts: Although my one grip that gets me is they want me to send the entire cooling system in before replacing. I wish I could sen din video proof or something to prove them that the cooling system itself is dying a slow death. I personally use my computer for a lot so its kinda a pain.
Otherwise this is a solid cooler just wish the warranty was handled a bit different.
