The cooler is a good one to use when you are working in close quarters due to your motherboard and case layout.
The plastic 2 part push pin setup was a serious problem for me. In trying to install 2 of these coolers on 2 motherboards I broke 3 of them. I bought a additional mounting kit because of this. The depth of the space going thru the motherboard is not long enough to get pin fully through. The motherboard make could be the issue in my case. I use Gigabyte boards so I must warn you if your are building using Gigabyte. Other make boards my not be a problem.
I know that had I contacted Cooler Master they would have sent me the parts for free but the kit was about $5.00 and free shipping so I didn't mind.
