XIGMATEK FCB (Fluid Circulative Bearing) Cooling System Crystal Series CLF-F1251 120mm Blue LED Case Fan, 2 pcs in 1 package CFS-SXGJS-BU2
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I picked up 2 sets of these fans to run one on my cpu cooler for push, pull setup.
One at the rear of my case, and two at the front of my case.
They run very well, and move a good amount of air, reported temps for motherboard are between 28-32 degrees celsius, my rig stays nice and cool while gaming on my MSI gaming 4g GTX 960, the video card stays cool, as do the motherboard and cpu for hours of gaming.
The Blue LED are bright and very nice looking without lighting up your whole room.

Cons: None, very easy install and great rpm, CFM.

Other Thoughts: Side note even with these fans moving at 1500 rpm I do not hear them hardly at all even with my rig setting above my head, on my setup.
Nice fans and work well, grab some for this price you get great fans and nice looks all in one package.

DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

5 out of 5 eggs Cooler that works well. 10/12/2016

This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

Pros: This cooler is nice it is easy to install, fits every socket so far for intel or AMD.
For AMD installation it is as simple as attaching the clip bracket to the cooler, applying your thermal paste and attaching the cooler just as you would your stock cooler from AMD. You do need to remove the fan if you attach it while the motherboard is in the case, If you attach it with the motherboard out of the case it is very simple and you do not need to detach the fan.
For Intel sockets 11xx types just attach the brackets to the cooler, apply thermal paste and use the push pins to secure it just as you would a stock cooler, the push pins do slide back and forth in the brackets to adjust for the different types of 11xx series sockets.
For Intel 2011 series socket just attach the brackets and use the provided screws to attach the cooler to the onboard bracket as you would your stock cooler by screwing it down after applying your thermal paste.
This cooler includes an extra set of clips to attach a second fan if you would like to setup a push, pull configuration.
This cooler looks nice and fits well, unless you unusually high ram heatsinks, you should have any problem with having memory slots blocked.
I had no issue with memory slots being blocked.
The LED is a nice touch and the fan seems of good quality it has good CFM rate and nice RPM.
Using a push, pull setup and attaching a second LED fan really helps light up the inside of your case.

Cons: So far I have found no cons to this cooler.

Other Thoughts: The real nice thing about this cooler is the fact you dont need a team of engineers to install it, or 8 arms.
Simple install even for new builders, or just the normal user upgrade.
It does a nice cooling job, running it on an AMD A10-7800 quad core cpu- I have idle temps of around 28-30 degrees celsius and the highest temps I have seen were between 46-50 degrees celsius while 100% cpu encoding videos.
I recommend this cooler for this price you get a great cooler without breaking the bank.

ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA AM3+ AMD 970 + SB 950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs Definitely Upset This Time 10/08/2016

This review is from: ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA AM3+ AMD 970 + SB 950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: The only pros were while it worked for the short week, it seemed like a great board with lots of features and the RGB led was nice.

Cons: Cons- It lasted one week with no overclocking just running stock settings on an AMD FX-6300, and G. Skill 16gb set 2133mhz memory.
MSI Gaming 4g GTX 960 video card.
Everything seemed great had my after market cooler (which attaches just like a stock AMD cooler, so I did not have to change anything).
So I decided since it seemed like it was all good I would send in the rebate.
BOOOMMMM, big mistake the next day something smelled like it was burning, and behold stuff got wonky it got unstable and didnt want to run right.
SHUT DOWN, time to see what was up, pulled board and looked at it closely and came to see that on the backside of the board under the cpu socket a couple of the little squares or whatever you call them, burnt up.
So I set up a replacement return with newegg and send it in, now by the time they get it and inspect I'm down 2 weeks at this point, just for newegg to reject the replacement, now I'm furious and apparently will have to wait until the board is shipped back to me and then start an RMA process with ASUS to get the board fixed or replaced, so now looking at the time frame it looks as though my PC will be down a total of at least a month and a half maybe less depending on how fast ASUS is.
I could understand them rejecting it if a asked for a refund after sending in the rebate and using the UPC, but i would still like to have the board I'm sure they arent all going to burn up for no reason, so this is why i just wanted it replaced and they rejected it.
So yes I am pretty upset with newegg at this point after all the business I have given them.
I am almost tempted to find another place to buy my PC parts from.

Other Thoughts: So, as long as you get a board that doesnt spontaneously combust for no reason, you should have a great motherboard.
