Cons: -Need more like this

Other Thoughts: -Would highly recommend for a display case, very cool looks.

Cool and Quite! cools very well while being extremely quite.

Pros: -cool
-quite
-cools RAM at same time

Cons: -low quality construction of parts and brackets
-large circumference ( takes a lot of room)

Other Thoughts: I rated two stars because the AMD bracket requires you to remove your entire motherboard to install a special bracket for its 4 screws to tighten up to. Well, 3 of the 4 supplied nuts that screw on to the adapter worked fine. the 4th does not grip the screw and is a tiny bit too large to thread correctly. I got it tight enough to work with the three screws, so i am sticking with it. I will not go through the nightmare return process and wait weeks without a computer to use to exchange this CPU cooler..

Great if you replace the fan

Pros: The design allows for flexible installation in a variety of cases
The heat pipes draw heat away from the cpu well and with the right fan, the fins do a great job of dissipating the heat.

Cons: The included fan is just so-so.

Other Thoughts: When researching this cooler, the stock fan did not have the best static pressure and does not extend over the whole radiator surface. Replacing the stock fan with a 140mm static pressure optimized Made this a 5 star cooler for my application. The radiator itself even has pre-drilled holes for a 140mm fan.

After swapping to a 140mm high static pressure fan this cooler kept my i5 4670K at 4.2GHz in a HTPC case under 71c under synthetic benchmark testing.

Overall I'm taking one egg off due to the so-so performance of the included fan.

Flawed

Pros: Could have potential if you change out the fan.
Fairly low height for a large cooler.
Has enough clearance for low profile RAM.

Cons: Included fan is low pressure.
A real pain to install.
One of the 140mm fan screw holes was too small for the screws (That came with a Cooler Master case) and couldn't be used.

Design Flaw

Pros: Cools the VRMs and the North Bridge.

Cons: Does not work with AMD CPUs.

Other Thoughts: This product does not work with AMD FX series processors due to a design flaw.
Using the AMD hardware, the cooler will not make sufficient contact with the CPU, resulting in overheating.

One of the best Top-Down Air Coolers There is! Period!

Pros: -Looks great so much so in fact that I bought two of them!
-Comes with offset mounting holes so you can mount either a 120mm or a 140mm fan on it!
-Comes with thermal Paste (though it isn't the greatest thermal Goop there is)
-Keeps my fx-8320e at 89 degrees farenheit on idle and 118 on full load!
-Keeps my wife's A10-7870k at 81 degrees farenheit on idle and 107 on full load!

Cons: -Had to switch the fan on it. The fans that come with it aren't good for static pressure.............(Coolermaster Silenco 120mm)

Have to take the motherboard out to put cooler in and parts aren't labeled at all also the manual is useless for these reasons and for the reason above I give it 4 eggs instead of 5 anyways
I switched them for a 140mm AF-14 PWM noctua Industrial fan on mine
and a Phanteks 140mm White HP on my wife's

-The included thermal solution is a joke though better then none at all, It is still terrible thermal solution I wouldn't recommend using it at all try using Prolimatech or Thermal Grizzly thermal compound instead.

Other Thoughts: -I would recommend this to other people however I would also recommend switching the fan that it comes with as it sucks and not in a good way!

Works well with LGA1151 CPUs (Skylake Xeon in this case)

Pros: - (Relatively) low profile
- Quiet

Cons: - Stock fan will fail after a number of years of continuous operation.
-- The last unit lasted 5 years so it's not too bad.

Other Thoughts: - Fits on an Asus P10S WS motherboard
- Replaced the stock fan with a Arctic 120mm PWM fan.
- Idle temperature is 15C over ambient when cooling a E3-1240 v5 Skylake Xeon
- Load temperature is 40 C over ambient when cooling a E3-1240 v5 Skylake Xeon

Looks and cools great

Pros: It looks much better than most tower style coolers. The stock fan is quiet. Keeps my cpu 24 degrees at idle and under 65 degrees at max load. i7 6700k

Cons: It is not as efficient as some larger tower style coolers.

Other Thoughts: The stock fan was fine but I replaced it with a corsair ML fan and was able to lower the RPMs while maintaining good temperatures. Ease of installation will depend on your case. My R5 made it very easy to install with motherboard installed. Orientation options will also depend on your case. My case allowed me to install up, down, left or right. Installing pointed down will likely block your first pci slot. There is plenty of ram clearance.
