Pros: This cooler is definitely pro, able to hit 5.0 Ghz @ 4.6v with avg temps of 65 - 70 degrees. Doesnt break 75 at max load 100%. The fans are nice and quiet, much quieter than the h100 fans at high, and that is without the noise reduction adapter on the phanteks.
Cons: The biggest downside to this cooler was the installation process. I was kind of a nightmare actually, the instructions are incomplete, or so it would seem. I have an LGA 1155 intel 2500k sandy bridge. when u get the back mounting bracket on, make sure u can attach the heatsink bracket before trying to attach the heatsink itself. Also, make sure u have low profile memory sticks. I had to remove the heatsinks from my memory before i could install this big boy.
