4 out of 5 eggs Much better than built-in audio, but not perfect 03/23/2016

This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Z PCIe 116dB SNR Gaming Sound Card with 600ohm Headphone Amp and Beamforming Microphone

Pros: Amp can push just about any headphones out there, signal is super clean and crisp.

Cons: Amplifier is kinda bass-heavy(some people like that, though), EMI shielding could be better, two big red LEDs were too bright for my liking(you can cut them off without any problems) and the plastic cover on the processor was making it get awfully hot.


Pros: Pump is not audible, even if I practically put my head inside the case. Radiator/pump is more than sufficient for just about any setup, if you need more then you should probably just build something yourself.

Cons: Fans are pretty loud when the speed gets higher than 2k rpm, especially if you use both of them. Backplate doesn't sit nicely on Intel sockets unless you use washers.

Other Thoughts: Pre-built liquid coolers don't get much better than this, but I would recommend switching the fans to something quieter if you're CPU is putting out a lot of heat.

4 out of 5 eggs Super quiet, but cant have cake and eat it too. 03/23/2016

This review is from: be quiet! PURE WINGS 2 120mm Max.1500RPM 51CFM 19dB(A) Cooling Fan

Pros: Hardly audible even at full speed.

Cons: Doesn't move much air compared to other fans this size.

Other Thoughts: Ultimately, you can't have quietness AND high airflow. If decibels are your main priority then this is a good choice, otherwise you might want to look elsewhere.
