Pros: LED's are really bright. Moves more air better than a stock 140 mm Corsair fan. Easy install.
Cons: Wish the PSU connector was also black. Sticks out like a sore thumb with my black wires and motherboard. Kinda loud for a small fan. CPU cooler blocks it out though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cools well. Not too loud. Includes fan splitter.
Cons: Installation was hard. Definitely requires at least 2 people, especially when securing the retaining plate. Radiator metal was slightly bent at some spots. Not a big deal at all, but I would expect a higher quality. Instructions for mounting the fans is lacking. Almost freaked out because I thought they didn't include fan screws. Thing is really big. 0 space between fan and RAM on my Corsair Carbide 300R. Trying to connect both fans to the CPU-FAN 1 and 2 is a joke. The fans do not need to be 4 pin but they are for some reason.
Other Thoughts: The plastic cap for part that connects with the CPU is really good for spreading the thermal paste.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 5 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Works as intended.
Cons: InstantBoot program crashed my computer when shutting down causing it to restart instead. Extreme tuner utility will automatically overwrite your settings. Not enough case fan connectors in today's world with some cases having 4 pre-installed fans.
Other Thoughts: Your motherboard is basically what your computer is. Spending some extra money for a $120-$150 motherboard is really worth the investment. No, I would not recommend this motherboard.READ FULL REVIEW
