This review is from: Fractal Design Silent Series R2 Black/White Silence-Optimized 120mm Case Fan
Pros: These Fans are So Quiet, I had to double check if my computer was On, after installation. I've got 6 of these in 2 PCs and I've never had a problem.
Cons: Fractal might consider including rubber washers or more of the rubber mounts.
Other Thoughts: Pro Tip: Get a Prolimatech PRO-SAM17 Samuel 17 CPU Cooler, then use a 120mm fan as CPU cooler
Product is great, buyers need to install the vibration-free rubber mounts to get max quietude. If you break the rubber mounts, go to the hardware store and get some tiny rubber washers. Minimizing vibrations from the mounting, is part of the Fractal thing here. Reviews that say these fans aren't that great, I have to assume they were not installed properly.
This review is from: Prolimatech PRO-SAM17 Samuel 17 CPU Cooler
Pros: Allows use of any 120mm fan as a CPU fan
Cons: Difficult installation, requiring access to BOTH sides of your motherboard. Lots of tiny screws.
Other Thoughts: I bought a Fractal 120mm hydraulic bearing (Quiet) fan to use with this, for a Less Noisey CPU Cooler. Installed, wasn't getting good temps.. took the whole thing apart (again), replaced Thermal Paste, now my CPU temps are lower AND it's Quieter.. but that install, tho.. could have been designed better, but it works.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Case Logic SLRC-206 SLR Camera Bags & Cases Black SLR Camera/Laptop Backpack
Pros: Padded, customizable Storage for lenses (huge plus). Side and back panels for accessories. Rubber on the bottom to repel moisture. This is a professional quality field-duty camera bag with a flat sleeve for a laptop..
I haven't actually used mine for a laptop yet, but right now my bag is holding 2 HD-SLR bodies, SEVEN lenses, 6 batteries, a charger, 2 filter kits, a multitool, and some cleaning supplies. This bag holds a lot, has quality construction, and doesn't cost a fortune.
Cons: Seriously, I can't think of anything I'd want from a bag that this doesn't deliver. This is a bag for a serious photographer, but everything is customizable with velcro. If you don't need this much lens storage, you can remove whatever you like.
Other Thoughts: I like the low profile of this bag. It doesn't scream out "steal me!" at the airport, and has a small Case Logic logo on the back.READ FULL REVIEW
