System won't even boot after installation.

Pros: It's big and comes with a 140mm fan.

Cons: After following the installation instructions, I press the power button on my PC, it starts up for 3 seconds, shuts down and goes into an infinite loop until I kill the power on the power supply.

best low budget aircooling

Pros: Very low idle (21C) and load temps(48), ability to add an extra fan with mounting hardware, Great for its price to performance.

Cons: Only comes with 1 fan, mounting is not completely secure, and if you have an AMD socket be prepared for it to not sit with air flow from side to side but rather up and down.

Other Thoughts: I was initially upset when mounting was up and down rather than side to side, but works perfectly with my NZXT Phantom 410 case, in which I made my top 140mm fans my exhaust and all others are intakes.

Solid CPU cooler

Pros: Great value, provides performance at or just below hyper 212 EVO for $10 or more less. Relatively good instructions, comes with a little pack of thermal paste. Does well under stress tests, cooling a FX-4130 at 4.2GHz.

Cons: This heatsink is bulky, I have a Hyper 212 EVO on another rig and it is larger than that easily. Other reviewers saying the under-bar that is provided is a little wacky are correct. It took some work to get it lined up and installed down correctly.
The stock fan is also a little weak.

Other Thoughts: Giving 5 eggs just because of the value. I got this for $15 on sale. 1/2 the price of a hyper 212 EVO for just about the same performance.

Headache at first

Pros: Keeps CPU at around 35 degrees Celsius, 40 when playing heavy load games, even with my mid size case, two graphics cards, and hardly any space in it.

Cons: Bulky, a pain to install, only comes with one fan, had to get another for an in/out flow.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to go on my MSI Z77 motherboard, put it on like the instructions indicated, but then, my computer wouldn't start. After a long week of troubleshooting, replacing parts, pulling my hair out, I realized the bottom plate that fits under the motherboard was touching a metal piece on my case. I bent the piece on my case back so they wouldn't touch and PRESTO Worked just fine!
