This review is from: NF-A14 iPPC-3000 PWM, 140mm PWM,AAO Frame Technology and SSO2 Bearing Fan
Pros: Great airflow
Cons: Brown rubber is ugly
Replaced my airplane engine with this thing and now the plane is louder
Other Thoughts: Recommend this fan if you have a way of controlling its speed. It is very loud at full RPM. I have this set up as an exhaust fan with a motherboard fan controller and it's excellent. Not too loud at low RPM but when the computer is working hard I get an audible indication as well as very good exhaust/cooling.
I recommend a fan vibration dampener from FrozenCPU (for aesthetics, not vibration). They are inexpensive, have a ton of colors to choose from and they fit the fan well...that way the fan doesn't stick out like a sore tuuurd in your computer.
Pros: Excellent performance. In OC mode this single 980Ti just *barely* underperformed my two 970s in SLI using 3dMark. Good-looking card with good cooling.
Cons: I had to RMA my first unit for coil whine, which I had read about but never experienced for myself (you'll know it if/when you hear it).
Second unit performs well with the exception of the LED effects. It defaults to the "breathing effect" and that works fine but if I mess with the mode in GeForce Experience it never really does what it's supposed to and it'll stay messed up until I update the driver.
The GPU sags noticeably under it's own weight
Other Thoughts: I bought this version of the 980Ti for its performance and it does perform well so I am satisfied. I would buy another one in spite of the issues I've had. Reduction of 1 egg because a $700 card should be dmn near perfect.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Once I got a working unit it was great
Cons: The first PSU I got fried one SSD and an HDD on first boot up.
Other Thoughts: I contacted Corsair directly when the first PSU failed. I went through their RMA process, which was fairly slow and complex....taking about 3 weeks to get a replacement unit, but I felt that Corsair was more than fair in the way they responded.
I figured since one unit failed and one worked that averages out to 2.5 eggs, so I rounded up to 3.
