Pros: This fan is so quiet and I tried looking my best for fans to get this
Looks pretty cool I guess I don’t see it in my case
Cons: Was making a sound when I first got it but its fine now
Other Thoughts: I got this and a 200 megaflow fan from coolermaster for my top fan and this is the quietest PC I ever seen even when gaming. On idle all my fans turn off and I own the RM series power supply so that fan never turns on below 400 watts which my equipment doesn’t use that much power at load.
I use this fan to replace my fan that came with the 212+ evo heat-sink works really well.
Pros: Easily the best case for 60$
I built two machines using this case and both were fun to work in not a hassle.
Can hide the wires from the power supply
Can take out the hard drive bay for more airflow which is what I did
Comes with a SSD bracket (really comes with a lot of extra goodies for those just in case moments)
Supports 2 200nm fans which is what I bought for both machines (coolermaster megaflow is fantastic)
Cons: USB 2.0 still
The 2 fans it comes with are not enough unless you have a lower temp CPU and the fans are real loud at full load.
Other Thoughts: Lots of room to work in and I think it’s a great case for the money.
Also the case is so big that all my fans actually turn off when doing normal things with the stock Intel heat-sink(with a smaller case heat was trapped more). My board stays at 42C as well.
Power supply: Corsair 750watt RM fan never turned on since I use 300 watts max in gaming (tested with crysis 3 and a Kill A watt meter)
GPU: GTX 970 MSI fans once again turn off doing light tasks
CPU: I7 4790K Stock heat-sink during gaming and the setup above it reaches 70-80C which is fine and during normal use its at <50C which is when my case fans turn off. Getting a 212+ cooler with a COUGAR CF-V12H fan so it can stay very quiet.
I’m writing this review for someone if they want a cool and extremely quiet machine they know where to look. Also I know many will disagree but I don’t like flashy cases so spending the extra 40$ on the fans was still 100$ and I don’t get that type of cooling with any other case. Keep in mind the bigger the fan the more CFM that can come in with less sound.
Pros: Very little light bleed unlike my Samsung 590D 27 inch monitor, it’s almost not even noticeable.
Solid blacks throughout the panel when you set in front of it.
Decently priced for what you get
Not to dark, however it took time to get used to during gaming and watching things.
A decent stand, easy to install, runs cool and it’s light. I actually like this and need this, I’m in a small room without a window and my TV would heat the room up 5F or so.
Stand does have a tilt feature but you can’t move the screen up or down.
Sharp enough and it can actually handle small details without looking fuzzy something my 32 inch Acer did all the time on this monitor all the extremely tinny lines or details in games are clear and smooth.
Cons: The colors are only slightly better than my old Acer TV it’s like a 1.1 version of it, that being said I’m 100% sure a TN panel can come close in color quality to this panel, I’m talking about the 8 bit TN panels.
My 1080P Samsung 590D IPS monitor was way brighter and sharper then this monitor as well as having superior color quality, was a night and day difference between this and the Samsung in a bad way but at least there isn’t any noticeable light bleed.
Response time was also faster on the Samsung (priced closed to this monitor). When playing Simcity and moving the mouse icon you can see a shadow follow you or if you move a window up and down in windows you can see it do the same thing as well. It’s not too noticeable during gaming or watching shows, but I think it would bother the intense fps gamer.
Other Thoughts: 1080P is decent enough for a 27 inch monitor, 1080P on the Samsung was sharp on this monitor its smooth and it makes me feel like 1440P would have been better but this is OK.
Some can get this monitor for 190$ and I have to say it’s one hell of a deal for that price.
Not sure how I feel about the glossiness I like it and I don’t at the same time. It makes the panel seem really clear like I’m looking out a window but at the same time I have a light behind me and I can see the glare in darker scenes but it’s not noticeable in most cases.
Keep in mind all these panels are basically from LG with the particular brands circuitry/frame and calibration added in (from Acer or AOC so on).
