Pros: Silence is cheap
Other Thoughts: Rebate took forever, but finally came through.
Fans move a decent amount of air and are silent.
Pros: Price: a bargain @ 4.995/fan -a steal at 2.495/fan if MIR clears
Very fast ship & delivery with NewEgg Premier
Color match on mine
Cons: Sleeve bearings, but I have mine vertical, and did not pay a fortune/matched published spec's
Light pattern(see other thoughts).
Other Thoughts: I guess it would be a lot of bandwith usage/server drive space for such a small item, but it would be neat if the product page could show a video of the fan in action(or a simulated screenshot) so you could see the light pattern.
I have a Rosewill 120mm that cost ~10(has 2x ball bearings though); it gives off a diffused, trippy blob of blue that I much prefer. These CM's are more like crossed esses that are interrupted by the fan hub. Still, they look ok, and my kid likes them on the FrankenPC we built on Christmas day, so all's well that ends well.
This review is from: EVGA 430 W1 100-W1-0430-KR 80+ WHITE 430W Power Supply
Pros: Price- 17 after MIR; turn was quickest I've ever gotten at ~ 6 weeks
Good build quality/aesthetics/heft(but not too heavy)
Now I have it in an HAF912 case running a Phenom II X3 ~130% OC(still only using ~ 92w)/R7 250 1G DDR5/8 DDR3 sticks/2 dark/2 led'd fans, does just fine.
The MUCH bigger case I upgraded to has plenty of room/ways to tuck away the cables I'm not (yet) using.
Cons: Probably too many/too long cables for many simpler builds and smaller cases.
Other Thoughts: For an efficient, well-built PSU from a well-regarded brand, you can't go wrong.READ FULL REVIEW
