Top Quality Design.
Quiet to nearly inaudible operation depending on the fan speed adapter used.
Smaller size than NHD14 and NHU12P SE2 coolers allows for broader case compatibility.
Price is decent for the performance and quality of the cooler.
Performance either with stock/overclocked processor.
Works with both AMD/Intel platforms.
6 years of warranty.
Temperatures Can Run Slightly High Under Load On Overclocked CPU.
Although the price is a pro, $70 for a CPU cooler can also be seen as a con to some buyers.
Installation procedure takes some time, but is straight forward.
Due to product design you cannot install a second fan.
Possible interference with taller memory modules.
No option to run a second fan for push/pull operation.
Fan wiring may be a bit too long.
