This review is from: Silverstone FF143B 140mm Ultra Fine Fan Filter with Magnet (Black)
Pros: Fine mesh, magnetic filter frame. If the area around the vent is metal, this will stick to it.
Other Thoughts: My environment is pretty dusty. I have a 140mm fan installed on the side of my case and the mesh was constantly grey with accumulated dust which I was having to brush off daily. I found this Silverstone filter and was very impressed. The mesh is very fine, the filter was the exact size I needed to cover the case vent hole. I still have to dust the filter at least once a day but at least it's not dust building up inside the case.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LEPA 70D 12 (LP70D12R) 120mm Case Fan
Pros: 1. Barometric Oil-less Bearing (BOL Bearing) makes for quite operation and MTBF of 100,000 hrs.
2. Works up to 70 degrees C resistance
3. Sturdy Construction
4. Includes 12V/7V/5V power adapter and metal case screws
5. 3-pin connector
6. Price: This is the best part after paying 4-5 times for similar fans. The LEPA 120mm fan ran $5.99 for 1-2, and price per unit drops the more you order beyond 2. I'm always looking for quality fans at a bargain price. LEPA is now on my list!
Cons: A minor one: no rubberized fan retainers for those that like such things.
Other Thoughts: For the price, features, and performance, this is one of the best bangs for the buck in case fans. It has gotten great reviews and will be my go-to 120mm case fan in the foreseeable future.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works well on older PCIe 2.0 system
Single Slot card
Powered solely by PCIe slot, does not require additional power
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Unfortunately, the fan on my old MSI Radeon 4850 died (don't know exactly when, found it dead when I opened case to clear some dust...I don't play games and guess it's a tribute to my case cooling!). Decided it was time for new card. I'd read other comments of users buying this card for older systems so I decided to give it a try. Downloaded the most current Catalyst drivers before installed. The card worked from the get-go. I can't speak for gaming but if you're in the market for a great card to use in an older system, this is an excellent choice at a great price. I've used XFX cards in builds for other people and have always been pleased with them so I had no hesitation buying this card.READ FULL REVIEW
