Excellent and attractive single-tower cooler

Pros: Looks great. Runs cool. Easy mounting system. Easy fan attachment. Smaller size than NH-D14, Silver Arrow, etc.

Cons: Cost. Can rotate slightly. Pressure can be set too high. Sharp fins. Fan clips only for open corner fans; shroud needed for closed. Not really black.

This "BLACK" version of the venerable Venomous X is very nice to look at indeed, but it is one of the least black "blacks" I have ever seen. Essentially it ends up being a slightly darker, smokier look than the standard Ven X; it depends on the lighting. However, it is not actually dark by any means, just not as bright and silvery. I don't mind since it matches my mid-gray case aesthetic quite well, but it is not worth a big premium over the regular VenX in my opinion. I paid $10 extra, and that's all I would pay, personally. I'm a sucker for aesthetics! This version comes with no fans. You'll have to buy your own 120mm fans, or 140mm if you don't mind them overhanging the edges a bit...
