MSI R7950 TF 3GD5 BE Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I got it on sale for a good price. Performs somewhere around a GTX 760 or 670. It will run pretty much any game maxed out with good frames per second.

Cons: First one died after a few days. It has some pretty bad coil whine, both cards. It runs pretty hot. The fan noise is pretty loud under load. I can't imagine what the reference cooler sounds like.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a good card. I sold my GTX 660 Ti and bought this. Sometimes I regret it. The 660 Ti ran great without any issues and it was always quiet. I bought this in case I decide to get a 1440p monitor and run dual 7950s in CF. If it's around 215 pick it up. Otherwise, there are better options.

NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller w/ Five 30 watts Channels
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap. Mesh scheme goes well with my case. Not flashy. Simple controls. Controls up to 5 fans.

Cons: The LED light can be annoying as it shines through the rightmost slider control. It will make a buzzing noise with certain fans. Cooler Master and NZXT fans seem to make this thing buzz when you raise the fan speed up from its lowest setting. Fans that do not make it buzz, for me, are Noctua and Xigmatek fans.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that there are fans that will make this fan controller make a buzzing sound when the fan is turned up even a little bit. I do not know the full list of fans that make buzzing noises, but Cooler Master and NZXT fans do. The Cooler Master fans make the controller make the loudest noise and it makes all the controls buzz. The NZXT makes it make buzz a little softer and it doesn't seem to affect the other controls. So keep in mind of you have Cooler Master or NZXT fans, this fan controller will make a buzzing sound if you turn a fan up.

XIGMATEK eXTREME SILENT Series XSF-F1252 120mm Case Fan with FCB (Fluid Circulative Bearing), 4 in 1 package CFS-SXGJR-KU3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price. Quality. Quiet.

Cons: The things you would expect from a cheaper fan: non-sleeved cables, non-PWM, no LED (could be a pro), and minimalist packaging.

Other Thoughts: These are decent fans regardless of price. Add to the fact that they are around 10-15 bucks for four fans, and they are a great deal. I would definitely get these over the 4-pack of Cooler Master fans. These Xigmatek fans are better quality.
