This review is from: Cooler Master Sleeve Bearing 80mm Silent Fan for Computer Cases and CPU Coolers
Pros: it did the trick for a while
Cons: Fan only lasted about 8 months then started making an unbearing grating noise. It appears that the blades of the fan are too large for the fan encasement. After a while the bearing gets looser and the fan blades become more unstable. When this happens they scrape again anything close to them and make a loud grating noise. Bad design....
Other Thoughts: Sadly it doesn't seem like there are too many reliable 80 x 15 mm slim fans out there. This one might be your best option unfortunately.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's very fast. Will score you a 7.9 on the windows experience index. Good storage size for an ok price.
Cons: It caused me blue screens before I updated the firmware and the firmware is not easy to update for this drive. The system setup the drive needs in order to be updated is very specific. (This is bad design in my opinion, because it really shouldn't need to be setup in such a specific manner just to update the firmware.) In some cases, if your system does not have right hardware, you may actually not be able to update the firmware yourself. In that case you would have to RMA the drive.
Other Thoughts: The tricky firmware aside. This really is a good drive. I just wish corsair cared enough to address the firmware installation issues.READ FULL REVIEW
