from completed build Mini Zen - Wall-mounted silent Mini-ITX
Look, I just think it is amazing that it is possible to cool today’s processors without a fan. The silence is impressive, although sometimes a bit unsettling – more on that later. I think the design is beautiful, and despite being on a Mini-ITX, it didn’t cause much cramming issues other than the first RAM slot where you really should go low profile. I get questions about not going with NoFan’s larger CR-95 – I opted not to for fear of a) even worse cramming and b) it extending beyond the glass of the P1 case which I thought would be aesthetically unpleasing. If passive cooling is of interest to you, this is a great one so long as you keep the TDP low. (9/10)

from completed build Passive Cooled Office PC
PROS: A good CPU cooler with a proper form factor for horizontal mounting. It can handle a i3-8100 TDP without the help of case fans.
CONS: It's huge and it might create problem with ram sticks. In my case, I could mount only a single memory stick.
In comparison with other coolers such has Cooler master H110, its more difficult to mount.
