This review is from: KINGWIN CF-012LB 120mm Case cooler
Pros: I bought several of these fans at once, so I got them pretty cheap. They're very quiet which is the main reason I bought them. They also move an adequate amount of air. Nothing that drastically lowered case temps but it makes a difference none the less.
Cons: Right off the bat one of the fans three pin headers didn't work so I was not able to connect it to my mobo which was my original intent. Whatever no big deal I just moved it elsewhere in my case and used the molex connector. About a month later I have another fan that the three pin connector stops working on. I hope this is isn't a continued trend.
Other Thoughts: Very quiet and pretty cheap, but I would avoid if you plan to use anything other than the molex connectors for power.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bright lights and a decent looking fan. MOBO header was a must for me. Good airflow.
Cons: It's LOUD.
Other Thoughts: When I first installed this fan I was shocked by how loud it was. I really strive for a quiet system because my PC sits right on the desk with me and too much noise is really annoying when working, gaming, or watching videos. It would be completely unusable for me if I had to hook it up with the molex connector or run it at full speed. Luckily I was able to underclock it through my MOBO utility. This made it significantly quieter and still provides adequate airflow. My PC never gets above 35C with this and a couple other kingwin case fans. The lights do a really good job of lighting up the interior of my case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Big window, removable drive cage leaves plenty of room and air flow, looks good, and the USB ports on top are nice (also handy to have a USB 3.0 up front).
Cons: Tool less design sucks. The drives do not feel very secure and there is no way to secure a 2.5" bay. Also the metal covering the output ports on the back are a pain to break off.
Other Thoughts: Overall a nice, good looking and affordable case. A few drawbacks but I think overall it was a good deal for the $50 I spent.READ FULL REVIEW
