Pros: The card I have produces no coil whine, even playing FFXIV on max settings.
The fans are very quiet, and also vary efficient. The card will run 1 fan (the right most fan) at 70-73C and will kick in the left most fan at 74+C and then turn it off when its below 74C. Center fan will come on if temps exceed a point from what im guessing which will be a vary HOT day.
The card is vary rigid, has no sag whatsoever.
Cons: The only con i can think of is the length. But that is not enough to take an egg off for since its a Tri-X cooler and we know this ahead of time.
The other con is the color. The color the card is now is great, but maybe a Red theme next time Sapphire, Blue, and White would be nice to see. Again, no egg taken off since knew this going in.
Other Thoughts: The card runs well, I am impressed. Comming from an Nvidia 970 (still a great card) this is like night an day. FFXIV real water, sharper edges, rich colors. This card is just amazing. I would say buy what you preferr to have. AMD did well this time around just like Nvidia did with thier 980tis.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEVIA CF4SL-URED 80mm Red LED Case Fan
Pros: Seems sturdy....
Cons: What they dont tell you is this is a 4pin MOLEX connector. 4pin PWM would be better to tone down that 2000rpm.
Other Thoughts: Make sure people know this is a 4pin Molex an not a 4pin connector I was thinking it was. Even though the picture has Molex connectors shown...maybe should include Molex-4pin adapter.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-7B plus II Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: The case is fairly plain jane which i liked the best. Its not to flashy. The case goes back to the roots of the old cases with the top mounted PSUs (has to be mounted fan side down), and if you need extra exhaust the 80mm fan hole in the top would do fine. Rolled edges are a nice touch, really clean looking interior. Also, HDD cage is removable to accomodate large GPUs.
Cons: I have come to realize that the case is naturally thick. So be careful about mounting CLC coolers to the rear or front. The pass through screws might not be able to reach through the case, fan, and into the radiator. There is NO backplate cut out for the motherboard so install backplates for cooler before installing. Since this has no window its not a big deal but cable management is none existant. Just try your best to keep wires out of main airflow paths.
Other Thoughts: Could have used a cut out for the MB tray. I think i know why the case is thicker then most steel ones, but thinner in the rear/font mounting holes for better compatibility for CLC pass through screws if that is possible. Make that 80mm top fan a 120 as well would be nice.READ FULL REVIEW
