XIGMATEK Dark Knight II SD1283 Night Hawk Edition CPU Cooler with Stealth Aerospace Industry Thermal conductive ceramic coating LGA1150 Haswell Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Looks good!
Fan mounts are a unique style of rubber pegs.
Included fan is reasonably quiet, provided it stays under 1,900Rpm.
Bright LEDs.
So far it's about 5C cooler than my Reserator 3 Max was. (See other here)

Cons: Directions took a couple looks over to get right.
The H.D.T. could be continuous (See CM Hyper 212 EVO for this).
Radiator fins are EASILY bent, especially considering the type of fan mounts included. But they also bend back just as easily.

Other Thoughts: So far, it's a very capable cooler. Right after install, I ran an hour of Prime95 and the temps never went above 35C, according to HWiNFO64. (Running an FX6300 @ 3.8GHz)
It's currently outperforming my Zalman Reserator 3 Max, but I also switched from Arctic Silver 5 to Arctic MX-2.

Corsair Air Series SP120 (CO-9050011-WW) 120mm PWM Quiet Edition High Static Pressure Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: VERY quiet, even when connected to a 12v Molex to Fan adapter.
Color rings add a slight customization and are easy to change, even with the fan running (long as you're careful).
Rubber mounting points for anti-vibration.

Cons: PWM didn't work for the one I got. Sensors had it running from 400Rpm all the way to 16,000!
The rubber mounting areas are a little tight if you are trying to pull a rubber mounting peg through, but not really worth an egg, unless you change fans often.
Cable not sleeved. (But it is black, so no eggs removed)

Other Thoughts: Wish the PWM would have worked, but considering this is a Static Pressure used in the push of a Push/pull config, I suppose it's better in the long run that it's running a steady pressure off a molex adapter.

SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Solid build & very sleek, sexy looking.
Well ventilated. Even comes with a magnetized dust filter for the top air vent. It's easily removed for cleaning.

Cons: VERY tight on space. (All the cables are bunched on top of the PCI slots of the motherboard.)
Top dust filter is in the way if you want your TV/Monitor sitting on top of it.

Other Thoughts: If you put a microATX board in it, you have 0 room for error. The power supply mounts right behind the CD/DVD drive so there's just enough room for the cables. Wire everything before securing it.
