Pros: I needed something extra to go with my SSD 256G drive and this drive was a perfect fit for the price and the size. Installed pretty quickly and worked well right out of the box.

Cons: Didn't come with screws, luckly I had some lying around but it wasn't OEM so I'm not sure why no screws were shipped. For that, 1 egg is lost.

Overall Review: For the price it's a pretty good deal.

Fantastic

Pros: My i5-2500k was idling with the stock cooler in the mid 40's. At one point, I saw it hit low 90's and decided that the stock cooler was not cutting it and I had to do something about it. I went with the cooler master because of all the great reviews but I did have my doubts that it could actually drop my temp that low. I was pleasantly surprised that not only did it drop my temperature by about 15 degrees, I couldn't get it to go over 62 degrees and that was with prime running. If you have any kind of temp issues, this is the cooler for you...just make sure you have enough room for it. Highly recommend it to anyone.

Cons: Taking the mobo out was a bit of the pain. Wish I had gotten this cooler in the beginning when I built it but all in all, it was pretty simple to install.

Overall Review: Even if you're temps aren't rediculously high, this cooler should be in every build. It just does a phenominal job.
