Nice design, Noisy Fan(s) 10/09/2013

Nice sturdy build!
Cable is wrapped in black to match most modern day Gaming PC slick designs. Three fans, and does the job of keeping the ram cool alright!
Not more than 1 week after having this running 24/7 in my PC/Server set up, one of the fans (can't tell which one) begins to rattle like crazy. Ugggh!!! You have to turn the fans off (I have a fan controller, and it rattles at any speed so it's not that) until they come to a complete stop, then turn them back on to get peace and quiet, maybe 5 minutes max of it before it starts up again. It ruins the overall appearance of the whole build because it's so darn noisy.
Also, the blue front does *not* come off easily. It's a sticker.. after peeling at it, I had to get GOO-B-GONE to clean up the sticky mess it left behind. I wanted an entirely black fan, not sure why they included the blue sticker in front.
I can't think of any other pros or cons at the moment. The noisy fan is really annoying though.. I suggest this if you have the higher up G.SKILL ram, especially if you are going to overclock, just because the computer will generally run a bit faster when it isn't under heated stress.
