Pros: the price
Cons: can't think of any
Pros: This CPU cooler is not only well designed it is extremely efficient for the price. Over the years I have installed several CPU coolers of similar design and they have all preformed as well or better than advertised.
The copper heat pipes draw the heat away from the CPU and dissipate it easily through the aluminum fins. This allows for a stable overclocking providing you aren't trying to go overboard.
Cons: With this heat pipe stile cooler the application of thermal compound is slightly different than with other stiles. The copper heat pipes are slightly flattened round tubes of copper in a aluminum block, it is not completely smooth or flat as other types of heat sinks. Therefore they require a "small "amount of additional thermal compound to fill any gaps.
Overall Review: The only problem I have concerning this CPU Cooler is the negative feedback being left here that removed eggs because of the Coolers size. It's just not fair to penalize Newegg.com because the product you purchased was too big for your liking when the size was stated as being "120 x 120 x 25mm" in the products description.
