Pros: Size (width), excellent cooling, silent operation

Cons: Price, size (height)

This is an excellent cooler. Easily the best one I've had the pleasure of owning. In terms of ranking, this is on par with the NH-D14 and the Silver Arrow, which are both considered to the be cream of the crop in air cooling. However, keep in mind that this cooler comes with only one 140mm fan, whereas the D14 and Silver Arrow both have 2 fans. Even with one less fan, this keeps pace with both of them.

Compared to the other two, this beast is SILENT. You cannot hear the fan running at all even when its spinning at its maximum RPM. I hooked up another identical fan (TY-140) to the other side and even then, with both fans running full tilt, they're in audible over the noise of the case fans on my HAF 932. The case is by no mean loud, in fact it in and of it self, is incredibly quiet, but these fans are a whisper.

In terms of size, this is quite tall. On my HAF 932, it almost touches the side panel, so beware if you're trying to fit it in a mid-tower case. In terms of width, it is puny. Both the D14 and SA cover the first RAM slot on most motherboards, but this one doesn't even come close to it. I have quite tall RAM heat-spreaders (Corsair Vengeance) so that was one of the things I was looking for when buying a cooler. I am pleased to say, this has more than enough clearance for any RAM you're looking to use.

The cooler is somewhat heavy, but this is largely attributed to the very high fin density that helps cool the CPU.

Overall, I cannot be happier about this cooler. It is a highly recommended buy.
