To conclude there aren’t too many bad things we can say about this cooler, besides its massive dimensions and sub-optimal mounting system. That said, this air cooler is top-notch and definitely belongs in the top segment of the market. The price may be a bit high but for that will deliver it’s promises in Dark Rock-solid Proformance!
In my opinion the pro’s easily outweight the cons here.
- Excellent cooling performance
- Inaudible at highest RPM setting
- Looks well designed and solid
- Double fan, one PWM
- Size and dimensions
- Sub-optical installation
- May block some RAM
