COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 1366/1155/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2

Pros: The heat sink is very good at what it is supposed to do. Currently running this with an OC'd i5-2500k @ 3.8GHz without any issues.

Cons: I find that the sheer size of the heat sink is just a bit much. I'm using an NZXT Phantom case and I cannot put a fan on the door panel because the V8 (It freaking looks like a V8) is just so large. I feel that the mounting brackets for it feel a bit flimsy for the size and weight of the device. I would have prefered to have extra supports for it.

Other Thoughts: It comes with a dial system that you can replace a small panel in the back of your PC with that you can dial in the speed of the fans. Due to the size of the heat sink, I cannot turn it passed a certain point of out fear that it will move too much and eventually fall into the system. If you can get your hands on water cooling systems, and don't fear the chance of leakage, then by all means, upgrade to water cooling.

Pros: This is a beautiful and incredibly stylish case. The fan adjustment switches on the top are a great add to this case. The amount of space inside, is insane.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The paint job is a dust magnet, and I am constantly cleaning it. Nothing damaging, just something that needs to be done anyways.
