This review is from: GELID Solutions FN-FW12BPL-18 120mm Blue LED Case cooler
Pros: Like my tag says "balance" it offers good static pressure and CFM. The good static pressure is nice for single fan operations on tower heat sinks/radiators and good CFM works nicely for push/pull configs and case flow. It's a good balance, works the middle were up-graders like my self see a benefit
Cons: None so far had since April 2013
Other Thoughts: Static pressure fans are really nice alone but in tandem you really see no major advantage. High CFM fans are nice for case air movement but see no benefit on dense heat sinks/radiators. that's why I recommend this fan, It's good in both aspects as well as long life mind you. oh and as far as noise goes this fan is quite on max (1800 rpm) compared to my SLI'ed 660 ti's PE from MSI on 35% fan speed, so it's quite by a long shot .....in other words you wont hear the fan more than normal in and air cooled build. You want silent get Noctua fans and full liquid cooled done.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Very good cable management and air flow. If your looking for air cool and solid cable management this is the case for you. Top has lots of space for a cpu water enclosed loop what ever the size.
Cons: Like I said airflow is its strong point. not really set up for a full internal water cooled setup.
