Pros: Cooling, noise levels, ease of installation for first time
Cons: Maybe second or later ease of reinstallation
I got this from my friend after he used it for a couple of months in the build I made him. He originally got it for $50 at Microcenter which was a fantastic deal. I used this as an upgrade from my 212+ as my temps were 70-80s under normal load on my 2500k. WIth this cooler, even used, it's an excellent cooler. My load temps dropped 20-30 degrees under load which is phenomenal. Even at 5GHz, my temps only go to mid 80's under extended prime95.
The only real problems I had was that there are only four screws for one fan, but you can use two on each fan diagonally for push pull, and installing it for a second time, removing backplate is a pain in the butt and such, as the backplate is attached with a couple of sticky pads.
