Pros: -Comes with 2 for $15
-Moves a lot of air
Cons: None really. Obviously these are just plain black fans so no fancy leds or anything. The cables aren't sleeved but they are black/dark grey wires so they still look good in a case so not a con
Other Thoughts: I have the GX700 case from Antec which came with 2 140mm fans and 1 120mm. I'm utilizing the fans that they came with and they move decent airflow and are quiet but once of my 140's stopped working and the other one developed a clicking sound if your 7w+ so I needed replacements. These fit the bill cause their plain black and came with 2 fans. They actually have more blades than the antec ones and push waaaaay more air and are quieter than the stock antec ones. These fans are fantastic! So if your like me where your stock fans stop working or simply want to add more fans to a case without leds (assuming you don't have a window or just dont want leds) than these are your fans! they are a steal!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -MSI Twin Frozr V cooler
-Super quiet fans
-Awesome, unique gold edition
-Nice backplate with holes for ventilation and a gold dragon logo on it
-Msi Logo lights up white, perfect brightness
-Full copper heatsink
Cons: This is one of the heaviest cards I've ever held, but its because the full copper heatsink plus the card comes with a backplate so it doesn't sag or droop at all so not really a con
Other Thoughts: I've bought MSI gpu's before for builds for my friends but this is the first one for myself and I love it! I had an EVGA GTX 780 6gb SC which was amazing but I didn't know if it was a driver or the card but in certain games after one of the driver updates but it would micro stutter and tear real bad in games like SWTOR, Skyrim, and Titanfall. I sold that to a friend and ended up with a Powercolor R9 290 and installed the Kraken g10 + gelid heatsink+Zalman lq310 cooler and it was better than my 780 and got a decent overclock on it, but it had minor micro stuttering in rare cases so it was alright. But I decided to liquid cool my 3770k to see if I can get pass 4.4 with a Thermaltake NIC f3 (have it up to 4.7 now with a kraken x31) so in my Antec GX700, having two 120mm water coolers was too much clutter and restricted airflow. As soon as I seen this gold edition 970 I bought it and love it to death. All the stuttering I had before with my 290 and 780 doesn't exist anymore with this 970 and it eats everything up. Plus its quieter than the other cards and sightly shorter too. Now I want a new case with a window to show it off. I haven't overclocked yet cause I don't need to but I probably will in a few weeks for kicks and giggles. As soon as my friend buys my 290, I'm getting another for sli. BUY THIS CARD!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT Kraken X31 120mm Closed Loop Liquid Cooler
-6 YEAR WARRANTY!!!
Cons: -Not a huge con but no LED's though I knew this already, NZXT only offers the LED's on their 140/280mm AIO's (ex. x41 and x61)
-Though the Cam software is awesome and helpful you can't really fully control the pump though if you mess around with fan curves and other things it will adjust to the proper RPM
Other Thoughts: I used this on a reference powercolor r9 290 that I bought at the same time with this X31, the white G10 kit, Noctua 92mm fan (replace stock g10 fan) and the GELID heatsinks, and a bitfenix 120mm green LED spectre pwm fan (green theme) and man is it rocking! I did try out the reference cooler just to witness the jet engine noise and within 5 minutes of playing SWTOR it sounded like a hair dryer at full blast. But now with this water cooling setup its SUPER quiet and SUPER cool. My card never goes above 57 degrees now when it use to go to the 90s easily. The pump on the X31 on the first start up makes a lot of noise for a few minutes but than it becomes pretty quiet. Its one of the quietest pumps I've heard, much quieter than any of the coolermasters AIO's. If your looking for a 120mm AIO than you can't go wrong with this one, keeps my 290 cool and would probably keep cpu's super cool as well plus you can't beat the 6 year warranty!READ FULL REVIEW
