    Pros & Cons

    Pros

    • Looks really sweet
    • Can be installed with or without mounting holes
    • Quiet
    • Very reasonably priced

    Cons

    • The cover may possibly seize up the fan blades if it falls
    • May not install on all motherboards

    Conclusion

    Well, the cooler performed about as well as I expected, as it paced the older blue orb with no problems at all. The major difference between the two coolers is the look. The Crystal orb has a lot more, well for lack of a better description, sex appeal than the blue orb does. And for those of you who are overclocking and modding, you know that the look is just as important as performance. This is one cooler I'm sticking with.
