Large and Cool
Pros: It keeps the processor very cool, even with overclocking. and comes with everything you could need.
Cons: The mounting system is questionable. It doesn't hold the heat-sink in place very well. At full speed the fan also makes a weird rattling sound.
Overall Review: When I tried to plug in fans around I gently bumped the heat sink, and it moved. There seems to be a lot of play in the mounting parts, but it should be fine after everything is set up.
cools fairly well
Pros: This cooler cools my I7-4770k overclocked to 4.4 GHz well (stays below 50c under prime 95). It looks great. It is mucy easier to install and more sturdy than hyper 212 evo. The mounting feels fairly sturdy and it is fairly quiet. Because of the shape it can fit with a side-panel fan.
Cons: The Allen head screws and wrench are not good. They strip very easily and won't be fun to remove at any point.
Overall Review: I didn't think that there was anything hard about installing this cooler. The only problem is the placement and type of screws.
Pros: Large screen, good processor, Good full keyboard, Good trackpad, Very quiet effective cooling.
Cons: Limited ports, weak Nvidia graphics, one pixel in the monitor died.
Overall Review: It is great to have this processing power and a good amount of ram. The keyboard has a very nice feeling and works well. My biggest problem is that Nvidia Optimus does not support Linux. It turns out Nvidia has no plans of supporting it at all, but if you are happy using Windows 7, it will be mostly good. The battery lasts from 2 to 3 hours under little load. When it is doing a lot of work it may only last 45 minutes on battery, but that is not very common. The webcam is not very high quality, but I don't need a great webcam. It takes a while to start up, so I just use hibernate more often.
Has a blue light
Pros: It works very well. I haven't had many problems connecting things to it, and it has a cool blue light.
Cons: The included cd was scratched. However after I got the software working, it was the only thing that prevented it from working.
Overall Review: Just use the windows drivers in windows 7. It shouldn't have more problems than any other Bluetooth adapter, and it has a flashy blue light!
