EVERCOOL EC7025SH12BP 70mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Good AMD CPU Replacement Fan 04/28/2014

This review is from: EVERCOOL EC7025SH12BP 70mm Case Fan

Pros: The stock CPU fan on my FX-4100 was squealing, so it was time to replace it before it failed completely. I had to do a lot of searching to find a good 4 wire (PWM) replacement. I installed this one and its working a little better than the stock fan.

Cons: It is a little louder than the stock fan, you can hear the RPM's increase with the CPU load....(but hey at least I know its working) I am betting that's because its moving more air. I view this as very minor and it really doesn't bother me.

Other Thoughts: I ordered another one as a spare... I have built a lot of AMD's with stock CPU fans in the past cant hurt to have a spare.

SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's SeaSonic they are the standard against which others are measured. If you do some web searching you will discover that many of the top tier power supplies are indeed made for other companies by SeaSonic.

Cons: zip, zilch, nada

Other Thoughts: Don't skimp on your power supply it's the heart of your system.

Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Incredible Value for the money. It's stable and reliable what more could you ask for.

Cons: Non sleeved cables, but that's expected at this price point. I prefer single rail models... but for low power systems it really doesn't matter.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased two of these so far. My first was for my son's lower end gaming rig. The second one I just dropped in my FeeeNAS server which runs 24/7/365. Check out the stellar review by Hardware non-biased, independent source. The CX-430 seems to get all the "fan fair" these days (the CX-430 is a good PS...and I own a couple of them too) but IMHO the VP-450 is equally as good and cost less. I highly recommend this power supply
