This review is from: ZALMAN SF2 Shark’s Fin Blade 92mm Silent Fan
Pros: Very quiet fan, the rubber mounts it comes with actually work like a charm making the fan completely silent - cant even tell when it is on.
Cons: The airflow is not that great. I bought this because I wanted to get a fan that had more flow than my old old stock fan and was silent. This did half the job. Speedfan says this thing is running at 1600 rpm so I should be getting around 34 cfm. I dont know any home method to measure cfm nor do I have equipment but this pushes out less air then my noisy 7 year old stock fan and I'm pretty sure its not at 34 cfm at all. I put my hand to the fans exhaust and I barely feel a breeze. I think everything in my pc has gone up a few degrees (32ish-36ish). it was also quite a dime compared to other fans. Looks like I might be shopping around fans for a while till I find the perfect one.
Other Thoughts: Cause it's only three pin i cant tell when/if it will run at max speed so I can see some real results. I have a small case so I was hoping this would make a great main exhaust fan. I guess this would be perfect as a fan in the computer to just move air around but i wouldn't suggest buying it as a main exhaust.
If I see serious changes in temperatures on load I will probably return this fan and look around for another one. Shame I probably wont find one as quiet as this one.
Pros: Nice, easy install, good performance! lots of ram good for video editing. not 1600 but plenty fast for gaming and media production. Got it on sale and with a coupon code for 33 bucks! 75 percent discount haha. Really good deal. great heatsinks also!
Cons: ram prices are going up so buy soon. No cons product wise tho
Other Thoughts: Always been a mushkin man. love their ram, occasionally ive bought corsair or kingston but mushkin has never given me any problems.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of ports, great price, fits case well. For the little bit that it did work it was a fast and nice card reader.
Cons: It doesn't work most of the time. It may be my motherboard but I am quite sure it is the device itself. It seems to only work when it wants to and most of the time it constantly "disappears' and reconnects from windows. The power is never interrupted cause the blue led is always on yet it disconnects then connects back in a few seconds. After all that happened and trying to get it to fully work for a few hours It just stopped working completely and is not stuck as an unknown device in device manager.
I have tried the fixes posted by rosewill in these comments about unplugging it and waiting and even tried the uninstall from device manager fix. Nothing seems to work.
gonna have to call rosewill tonight and newegg to see if I can fix it, if not then its gonna have to be replaced
A hassle this product has been.
Other Thoughts: I wish I didn't have to get it replacedREAD FULL REVIEW
