so pretty I wanted to use it as a paper weight
Pros: Very quiet, effective cooling, self contained thermistor, pretty without a wasteful LED, sturdy mounting system.
Cons: So pretty I wanted to keep it where I could see it. Now my other computer seems loud in comparison and I'll have to buy another one. Only real drawback is that it is best to install with the motherboard removed from the case, the mounting plate doesn't stick effectively.
Overall Review: I bought this to replace what looks like the stock Core2Duo heatsink in a used computer I bought for my wife. With this, a seasonic power supply, a fanless video card and 12" case fan, the beast that sounded like a jet engine when we got it is now almost silent. I just need a better case now ...
