I don't know why I waited...

Pros: Easy install on a R7 2700x (AM4), brackets for either AMD or Intel came with.
Very very quiet fan.
Everything's blacked out, including the brackets, screws, fan, heatsink. Love that.

Cons: Two of the aluminum fins were bent on a corner. Wasn't that big of a deal though, easy to use pliers and bend back.

Overall Review: Replaced the AMD Wraith Prism with this and glad I did. Was getting 43c idle / 80c load, 48 decibles and now I'm getting 32c idle / 60c load temps with 39 decibles. I used be quiet fans on the front (2 - 140mm), 1 on the back exhauster (120mm) and there's 1 (120mm) on this dark rock slim. Temped to replace the cooler masters in the top of the case just to keep them the same and see if I can get even closer to silent. I want to be able to hear my cat walking in the next room. Help me get there be quiet! :-D

Cool and silent

Pros: The dark rock keeps a risen 7 well cooled even overclocked. The only time you hear anything is a whisper of a click as the fan cycles off.

Cons: None

Sleek and Silent CPU Cooler

Pros: - Includes both Intel and AMD mounting brackets
- Installation of the mounting brackets and heatsink was very easy
- Cools much better than stock Wraith Prism cooler
- Really quiet, even at 100% speed
- Looks cool
- Top-notch build quality on fan and heatsink
- Does not interfere with RAM modules
- Option to mount 2 fans on heat sink with included fan clips (extra fan not included)

Cons: - No fan splitter included with the CPU fan. If you want to mount a second fan on the heatsink, you have to buy your own
- Fan clips were a bit difficult to install
- No RGB included (although you could mount a 120mm RGB fan if you wanted to)
- A little pricey

Overall Review: I picked up this cooler as a replacement for my stock Wraith Prism included with my Ryzen 7 2700X. This CPU cooler has made my build run much quieter with lower base and peak temperatures. Its sleek design and all-black finish give it a great aesthetic with a slim profile. The included fan is almost inaudible when in my case, even when running at full speed. Installation (aside from the fan mounting clips) was a breeze compared to the Wraith Prism cooler. Overall, if you want a quiet high-performance cooler that doesn't run into your RAM, this cooler is a great option.
