This Cooler is Dank Value, Period.

Pros: -Works like a beast. This thing keeps my Pentium G3258 @4.6ghz 1.42v Idling at 25-25c and at 55-65c under full load. 35-55c while gaming.
-Works better than water coolers I've seen.
-Black pearl plating is awesome, matches my GPU perfect and looks great against a black mobo.
-Mirror finish on the bottom, the contact plate is not DC but absolutely flawless and makes a great bond. Suction cup status.
-Built in PWM is cool!
-Included Thermal paste is the best i've ever used, super low viscosity and you get about 2 times what comes in arctic silver. That would cost me like $15-$20 itself.... dank.
-Not one complaint personally. At all.

Cons: -Some may find the mounting annoying If trying to mount w/o taking out motherboard. Can be done, just takes patience, a bright flashlight and the included long shaft hex head magnetic thing. You can line it up with the fan and it reaches perfectly in line with the mounting holes and you just drop the screw in with the magnetic head... very carefully. Will take a few tries lol.
-Nothing else it truly is awesome.

Other Thoughts: -Have recommended since i got it
-Would buy over and over for every build lol. SO cheap for the stupid good performance. Get it if you need a budget air cooler, and it can fit in your case. Should be good in most mid towers and definitely full towers

Does the job

Pros: It cools my CPU, it's quiet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's been a while since I've built a PC so I was surprised at how big this was. Put it together in no time.
I really cannot hear the fan.

Best cooling fan (and the biggest, seriously this thing is hugeee!)

Pros: HUGE, went from 76-80c under load at stock clocks (fx-8120) 3.1ghz. to 33c under load with an overclock from 3.1ghz to 4.3ghz, idles around 22c-27c depending on what setting the pwn fan control is at

Cons: very, very, may i repeat VERY Hard to install this onto to the motherboard, the screws arent long enough, and had to bend and pry to get it installed, i seriously thought i was going to break the motherboard.....

Other Thoughts: Other then the difficult time installing it, this is the biggest and best cpu fan i have ever owned, and im amazed by it, at stock clocks, 3.1ghz, the idle temp was 11c!!! down from like 45-55c on stock cooler, which was horrible, shame on you amd.

WORKS AND LARGE

Pros: Cools my 1090T at 18c on idle. Looks great with blue fan and lighting in DefineR4 case.

Cons: Kind of tricky to install because of clearance on bottom. It covers the first DIMM slot on my mobo. I have RAM with heat spreaders. Some low profile RAM may work.

Other Thoughts: I had to remove my mobo to install. The allen wrench included has cut end to allow tightening of screws from an angle. This cooler is well worth the price.

Massive Cooler

Pros: pushes alot of air, keeps notoriously hot running 8 core AMD chips cool

Cons: wont fit in some cases, in my case it was 2mm to tall to properly close the case door.

Other Thoughts: not so much of a con but an inconvenience so I'll put that here: it has a poor design in the bracket to secure the cooler to the cpu making for a more difficult installation then it needs to be and possibly damaging to cpu when removing if caution is not taken to remove screws in a diagonal format from spring loaded pressure.

BEWARE NO ZALMAN SUPPORT

Pros: This cooler has lasted me since 2009 and has run fine on two AMD set ups since. It is dead silent, and pretty efficient. No problems.

Cons: REALIZE THERE IS BAD and MINIMAL CUSTOMER SUPPORT. The number on their website goes to their office in Korea. After a lengthy Korean recording I can't understand anyway, it hangs up on you. And emails suggest they don't understand English.

Other Thoughts: I didn't want to reduce eggs because it is a good cooler and Newegg hasn't let me down.
However, don't expect to find any Zalman support. Look online and you'll see this is not an uncommon issue.
In my case, I need a mounting bracket/clip for LGA 1155 for my new build, which didn't come with the cooler (in 2009), and their email reply was "Yes. 1156 and 1155 has the exact same dimension." My second email clearly stating I need a 1155/1156 bracket seems to have gone ignored. I'm tired of waiting for a late and probably unhelpful email and I'm not wasting money on international calls that disconnect you. I'm glad the cooler I bought has been a champ this whole time, but I'd rather drop some cash and just buy a new cooler from another manufacturer with better support for the long run.
