4 out of 5 eggsGood for H2O rigs.

Pros: Has the ability to move air EXACTLY where you need it. This makes it ideal for chipset cooling. The mount allows you to put it anywhere there is a motherboard or case screw. It uses a 3 pin fan header which allows you to vary the speed (and noise) of the fan. It has blue LEDs which highlight your motherboard.

Cons: The gooseneck is flimsy and will not support the weigh of the fan without a little help (see other thoughts). Cable management is non existant. The wires should have been routed down through the middle of the gooseneck to hide them. It has blue LEDs which highlight your motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Buy some small black plastic zip ties for the install. I purchased two of these fans and mounted them on opposite sides of the VRMs I was trying to cool. I then zip tied the plastic that surrounded the two fans together. This supported the whole assembly very well and was very clean. I then used the ties to zip the wires to the bottom side of the goosneck where you couldnt see them. Very clean and subtle install that has great support and hides the wires completely. I didn't like the blue LED light as my motherboard already glows red so I crushed the LEDs with a pair of needle nose pliers... worked flawlessly. I am running an FX8350 at stock speeds 24 hours a day transcoding large video files. I use liquid cooling for my CPU... before the fans, the CPU was being throttled by the motherboard to get the temps back below 60 degrees. After the fans, my setup runs at 34-38 degrees continuously at full load.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it

Pros: moves a decent amount of air. the arm stays in place when you bend it. nice led lighting.

Cons: i wish the arm was stayed exactly where i bent it, it moves over time because of gravity. the weight of the fan itself is pretty light, you could just zip tie the neck a cable or something to keep it in place.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Cool looking
-Fan works
-Different settings are handy
-Quiet

Cons: -Only worked for about 1-2 months before it started falling apart. I was partially to blame though because I kept fiddling with things inside my rig.
-The mounting screw is absolute trash. It wouldn't stay up on it's own, I had to prop it up on something when it did work.

Other Thoughts: I got it for free with one of my orders. I see why.

5 out of 5 eggsSpotCool

Pros: These are great for northbridge coolers on systems using liquid setups.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Like any 3 pin powered fan, the cord is ugly. After shrink wrapping them in black they look much better.

4 out of 5 eggsWhat a great specialty fan

Pros: A great versatile cooling element!
- Great build quality
- Rotating head
- Great accent lighting
- Pretty darn quiet even on HI.

Cons: - The neck doesn't support its on weight when mounted level or above fan head. (see comments below for fix!)

Other Thoughts: I don't understand a comment left on this product.
1. The light is WAY to bright.
- I hope you have your fan facing the appropriate way, the "exhaust" side of the fan is where the LED lights are. They cascade a pleasing glow on my MOBO, not in my face.

Fix:
While it would have been nice to see the build quality of the neck a little higher, its nothing a little extra MOD can't fix. All I did was snip a piece of wire clothes hanger and sheath it in electrical tape around the neck. This added the extra rigidity it needed to mount my fan diagonally down. Takes 5 extra minutes. But because I had to do this, I deducted 1 egg.

Use:
I use this fan to spray cooler air on my memory chips, north bridge, and south bridge. It is a bonus that is also breezes across my Corsair H60 heat sink and socket. I attribute this fan to lowering my bridge temps at least 10%.

4 out of 5 eggsSystem Cooler

Pros: Great way to add a extra fan to a small media case. Works great and keep things cool.

Cons: A little hard to install in a media case. I ended up taking a pci bracket and drilling a hole to mount it. Other than that no issues.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to any one buying a small media pc case.

2 out of 5 eggsWouldn't recommend

Pros: It is easy to install and point in whatever spot you need.

Cons: It is loud and the LED lights are too bright. Doesn't cool very well.

Other Thoughts: I am currently running two 770's in SLI and I bought this to point at the top card to help it cool off since it is smashed between another GPU and a sound card. It did absolutely nothing to the temps and it is the loudest fan in my case. I will leave it in until I clean out my case, but after that it is gone.

2 out of 5 eggsNot like the old SpotCool

Pros: Similar design to the old SpotCool.

Cons: Antec started using a cheaper goose neck that doesn't work nearly as well as the old one.

Other Thoughts: I have used several of the old Antec SpotCools in past builds. A fan bearing went bad on a SpotCool in one of my old systems, so I ordered a new one from Newegg. Apparently, Antec has started using a cheaper goose neck assembly that doesn't stay where it is bent. So what's the point of that? Don't mess with a good thing. I'd rather pay a few bucks more for a SpotCool that does what it's supposed to do.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None

Cons: This is fan is noisy when connected to a not controlled header aside from that it does not cool the thing you want it to cool

Other Thoughts: I got this free but just letting the guys who want to buy this don't waste your time get a good fan than this
