Pros: 1. They were not too "expensive" (under $20 a fan)
2. PWM (easy control if your mobo supports it)
3. 60s CFM on the 140mm size, 50s CFM range on the 120mm
4. actually about 19 dBA on the 140mm and 22 dBA on the 120mm end, I MEAN FOR REAL, I wasn't huge on the quite and efficient band wagon until I built my latest machine, I have 4 of the 120s and 3 of the 140s And i never hear it running until I get into a 1-2hr BF4 session and even then its hardly noticeable.
5. flat black cables that don't look mongoloid when routing them all over the place.
6. good length cables
Lights are not too bright either had some blue ones from thermaltake that were bright as... the sun its self
Cons: not really a con, but they will not come with a 3 pin to molex adapter. not a huge deal but hey 15 bucks a fan.... throw it in. no eggs off though
Other Thoughts: System Build:
i7 4770 stock clocks w/ Noctua's NH-U14s
16gb patriot RAM
ASUS z87 sabertooth
2x EVGA GTX 770 4gb SC
1 1TB WD HDD
1 250gb samsung evo SSD
CM storm stryker case
system temps from ASUS AI suit @ idle are 27c to about 30c
and a good average load are around 40c never higher
I think the graphics hover around 65c loaded
I was able to save about $20 ish got these at a local fries electronics and didn't have to wait for shipping
Purple is dope
The only way these could get better is if they ripped off noctuas design, those things are beast but WAY more expensive then these guys at around $30 PER FAN....
hat off to you corsair another wonderful product, really nice... cant say it enough
Pros: Its massive looking once you have all your gear inside though make sure your routing cables and managing everything slowly. other wise your build will look terrible and cool like it too (see other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: This case has some different cooling set up going on thats not really a con but you might want to keep in mind for your set up. The only 2 intake fans are orientated to blow directly through the HDD cases and out the other side with what seems like air flow from exhaust fans pulling that air into the rest of the case as fresh air? With an extra bottom mounted intake fan to get more fresh air to the rest of the case. I guess I wish there were some side window mounts for fans but that would look a little weird I guessREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Its playing everything I want it to at the max or near the max settings. on 1920x1080p

Cons: um... none I can think of
i know this thing is relatively new to the market still so get those updates as Nvidia pushes them out
Other Thoughts: have some room to fit this guy its pretty bigREAD FULL REVIEW
