This review is from: RAIDMAX Vortex ATX-402WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Easy to work with within it's severe limitations
Good space for cable management
Easy access to front filters to clean them, and fairly decent filters
Cons: Only has slots for *6* cards
Cooling fan hold on bottom does NOT line up correctly with larger power supplies like my Seasonic X1250s or my EVGA 1300 G2s
"Filter" on the bottom does NOT stay on, and blocks airflow quite a bit while providing VERY poor filtering.
LEDs and power/reset switches are INVISIBLE from the front, PAIN to work with when you can't SEE the bloody things!
TOTALLY UNACCEPTAB:E FOR A HIGH END 3 CARD GAMING RIG, and NOT a good design in general.
Other Thoughts: 20/20 hindsight I wish I'd never bought this overpriced cheap piece of junk, and I will NOT bother looking at "Raidmax" products in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Delta AFB0612EH-ABF00 60mm Case cooler
Pros: High airflow
LONG lifetime, I've had some of these around for over a decade and still work
Cons: Loud. They're not as bad as the 80CFM 80mm Delta screamers, but they're NOT quite and quite high pitched.
NOT for "Media PC" use.
Other Thoughts: I used some of these as CPU coolers back in the Athlon Thunderbird/XP days, now recycling them as replacement fans for a few of my HIS 7750 cards when the stock JUNK fans die - and get BETTER cooling despite no shroud, and a ton better expected lifetime.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice low profile card, included VGA without an adapter needed is good for those of us with older monitors.
Cons: Fans are junk, I have 6 of these cards and 3 of them have had dead fans within 6 months or less, one had a fan die in a bit over ONE MONTH. IMO avoid this card, the fans are cheap junk that do not last and the mount makes it impossible to replace them with good fans without voiding warenttee.READ FULL REVIEW
