This review is from: Phanteks PH-CB-Y4P 4.3" 4 Pin PWM- Y Splitter Fan Cable M-F
Pros: Looks great, great sleeving, nice looking quality.
Cons: The quality ends when you try to hook it up!! And notice there is a pin and wire missing on one of them.
Thought I was buying a 4- pin splitter on all ends, but got 4- pin on 2 of the three ends. Labeling is not written that way, deceiving. I am missing the second pin and wire or the third pin and wire depending on how you hold it, on just 1 of the male ends. The single female end has 4-pins and 4 wires.
Other Thoughts: when I buy a 3- pin splitter I get a 3- pin splitter on all ends. When I buy a 4-pin splitter I should get a 4-pin splitter on all ends, right?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price, good quality, installed easy, fast web surfing.
Cons: I have win 10 64bit OS.Had issues with my sound when this card was in. Sound had a buzz sound to it or studder. Used win 10 64bit drivers off Asus website. I have Realtek HD audio sound. Uninstalled it and reinstalled a few times. So I put my usb Netgear WNA3100 back in and my sound is working perfectly again. Go figure!
A guy just can't afford to just keep buying cards until I find one that will work?
Other Thoughts: Tried to improve on what I had, but It did not work. Tried All kinds of things to get it to work but, no go. This pci-ex card was faster than my netgear usb wifi. Tried many different realtek drivers R2.66, R2.79 and others with no improvement. All my specs and drivers matched up with this card, and put it in the right pci-ex slot. Oh wellREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14CS_BL 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler
Pros: Good color blue, up or down draft, a 120 mm fan fits on this cooler with the provided clips.
Cons: It's not built high enough for medium or high profile ram. No ram higher than 42 mm , (installed on the MOBD) measured from the MOBD surface to the highest point of the memory heat spreader. One egg less for not being made high enough. There should be not excuse why this cooler is not high enough. Only high-end gamers and overclockers with high-end wide cases are going to buy these, so why not make it higher??? Using a high-end cooler with low profile ram is not a good idea !!?? Not a big deal for me since I only do light overclocking, never heavy. I will make my G.Skill sniper DDR3-1866 ram work for this cooler, even if I have to bend or clip off one end of the sights that are on the top of the heat spreader or just keep off the bottom fan. Even with the 120 mm fan on the bottom it still hits the first ram slot. Was only able to orientate this cooler one way with the cooler pipes toward the pc plug-in's and the 8-pin cpu power connector and the bottom 140 mm fan sticks over all the ram slots.
Other Thoughts: The holes on the 140 mm fans are in the exact same place as the holes on my cooler master 120 mm fans. So you could swap the 140's for 120's if you want and the clips work fine. I have a Gigabyte AMD MOBD GA-990FXA-UD5 rev.3.0 and G.Skill sniper DDR3-1866 ram memory. I will give another review when I test this cooler some more.READ FULL REVIEW
