This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: Good design, easy to install, and very quiet under normal operation. Was able to overclock the i7 3770k to 4.2 ghz with temps of 80f idle, and 140f while gaming and recording with FRAPS. Also came with a ton of thermal paste in a little glass jar. I didnt use it because i ordered some arctic silver 5. But the paste it came with looked just as good as the arctic silver. When I say a lot, i mean like a small fingernail polish jar.
Cons: None at all.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: They are quiet, and look very nice with the white LEDs. When combined with a good fan controller, these can be a very quiet solution for cheap. In a gaming rig you will hear them when they ramp up to speed, but its not that bad at all. I have 6 of them running in a midtower case, and its not that loud. Even with them all running at 100%. They do an excellent job of keeping my gaming pc very cool.

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller
Pros: Everything about this little device is, a pro. Its fast, and responsive just like it says. comes with 5 temp probes and 5 fan wires. The temp probes are very accurate, and will sustain high temps, without damage. This thing manages fans better than my mobo so far. I plan on ordering some extension cables for the further fans, and cpu.
Cons: A little hard to see if the device is above eye level. This would not be a problem for the average user.
Other Thoughts: This is a great value for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
