This review is from: MASSCOOL BLD-08025S1M 80mm Blue LED Case Cooling Fan
Pros: Nice lighting and decent air flow
Cons: Wish it doesn't had both the 4 pin peripheral and 3 pin connection coming out of the end. Takes up a bit of space coiling.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a noisy fan on the top row of my Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus as a exhaust fan. Does the same cooling performance of the replaced ball bearing fan and lights up my case more. Other than the dual connections coming out from the end there's not really anything bad to say about this product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice LED show.
Cons: Noise on low RPMs and worse on the highest.
Other Thoughts: I had really high hopes for this fan when it came in as I assume Cool Master makes really good fans and cases. Sadly this product wasn't one of them. When I connected it on my computer case front on my Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus case using the 4-pin to 3-pin peripheral adapter it came with, it went of at high rpm with a sharp buzzing noise.
This irritated me a lot and I tried it even with the front and bottom of my case closed up giving it a chance hoping the noise would dampen. Sadly it still irritated me. Finally I saw i t as a chance it could work as a better performing replacement of my Crosair H60's radiator fan as it claims to have better air push. Now this time, the fan was connected to my motherboard's 4-pin fan chassis connection, meaning I 'll have control over it.
It actually did horribly as this time, there was hardly air pushing through the radiator even at the maximum fan settings through both my BIOS and my desktop app. The noise on is bearable in between the highest and lowest RPM setting, but worse in the lowest setting. I also have to mention I've set this fan both in in a horizontal and vertical position, upside down and upwards.
This just turned out bad for me. I'm just going to return it because I would feel bad if I passed this on to another person. I'm staying with Crosair fans from now on.
Pros: Really love the fan as well as the thick rubber tubes this product has. Not to mention it's super easy to mount on AMD slots.
Cons: When I got mine in I noticed some indentations on the logo of the product within the block. I thought it was suppose to come like that until my friend ordered his and it had none. This makes me frown a by the quality and costing a egg in this review.
Other Thoughts: It's a nice product and solution on replacing the OEM fan and heatsink or any aftermarket air cooling solution for whatever reason. Using a AMD Phenom II 6x it ran so hot around 60C under loads and now it won't go beyond 40C and idle around 20C.
I recommend this to anyone who's on a budget and a bang for their buck.
