Most Favorable Review

This is for the NARROW LGA 2011 socket

Dynatron R14 60mm 2 Ball Intel Sandy Bridge Romley-EP/EX Narrow ILM Processors up to TDP 150 Watts

Pros: Fits well, cools well, reasonably quiet.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Regarding the other reviews complaining about the fit - there are two specs for LGA 2011 coolers. This is the narrow one. If you pick the wrong one for your motherboard, it won't fit. It's not defective - just the wrong part for your application.

Most Critical Review

Not drilled right for Extended ATX Board

Pros: Big case, quality looks decent

Cons: The case is not drilled properly for extended ATX boards - or at least not the SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DR3-F-O board. Holes only available for 6 of the 9 motherboard holes leaving the corner by the back panel conectors completely unsupported.

Needs LGA 2011 *NARROW* Cooler

Pros: Just an FYI - Takes an LGA 2011 Narrow cpu cooler

Cons: Wish that was in the specs here.
