Pros: Easy installation, near custom loop performance, lets case look nice and neat

Cons: Not a big difference in push/pull

I didn't have that much of a problem installing this cooler. Note that I do have an Corsair 800D that lets me take the back panel off and access behind the board for the processor mounting. If you have any case like that, this will be a breeze but if you don't then this may be a bit more frustrating for you.

The cooling on this is great even with stock paste. It uses a mid-high quality TIM (Thermal Paste) that keeps the processor nice and cool. Under loads at a mild OC of 4.5ghz @ 1.27 I was getting max of 63c as a push only config 10hr prime. From what I've seen a push/pull will affect the temps by 1-5c.

Overall if you're scared of doing custom loops as I was, then this is a great way to start off. I have no regrets buying this and I have recommended this to other people that I know.
