Kingston HyperX KHX-FAN Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs 08/29/2014

This review is from: Kingston HyperX KHX-FAN Fans

Pros: Sturdy
Easy to put together and install

Cons: If you've got a heatsink (liquid cool or air) that overlaps your ram, this will get in the way and you won't be able to use it direct over your ram.

Other Thoughts: I have an AIO liquid cooling system that I had set up with the tubes going over the ram. I simply flipped the AIO around to solve the conflict -- but depending on your system that may not work.

ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid II-120, Liquid/Air Combo Extreme Cooling for Hi-Performance nVidia/AMD VGA
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: In theory, this is a good idea.... No idea if it really works (see con)

Cons: Box was missing the protective film that is required to put the heatsink on the gpu. Didn't realize it was missing until I had already taken apart my gpu and put the liquid cooler on -- not the company's fault that I didn't double check that it was there but still aggravating because you can't exactly grab a spare protective film out of your tool box.

The heatsink is taller than advertised and appears it will run into my ram (won't know until I can actually put the thing together); so if you think you might be close, don't buy this.

All the youtube videos I watched before buying this product said read the directions BEFORE trying to assemble and I would agree EXCEPT the directions are really bad.

Other Thoughts: Planning on calling ARCTIC to get them to send me the missing film but haven't had an opportunity yet (too busy putting my GPU back together....).

Silverstone PP06B-PCIE55 21.65
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: it does what it's designed to do, looks good (if you're into aesthetics).

Cons: Was a shorter than advertised -- roughly 3" shorter; keep that in mind if you're getting this for the length. I barely had enough cable even this should have given me about 2 to 2 1/2" of wiggle room.
