The main advantage I see to this cooler (besides the fact it works just as well as any cooler in its price range) Is that is had a different shape and fan orientation then most coolers this sizes. This way a key factor for me and the reason I used this in the end. Most other coolers this sizes with a good size fan and heat pipe and a much bigger footprint over your cup. In my case almost all standard sizes coolers would hover over 2 of my ram slots, thus making it impossible to use all 4 slots.
This cooler is narrow at the base and doesn't get wide till a higher point, further from your Mobo. So 5 points for unique shape and knitchy applications. I'd recommend this for hot, small, cramped builds. Also ya cant argue with the price.

Works, easy install, not too big and didn't block my ram.

Picked this cooler up in 2014 for my Haswell build. I liked it because it had a front facing fan, a low profile without covering ram slots, and didn't stick out in the case like the 212. It's a great fit for small form cases, and it's fairly inexpensive.

Good cooler. It has 4 direct contact heat pipes, which means you need more thermal paste when applying. Also, it has enough clearance for memory slots.
