Pros: Two of these went into a HAF 912 perfectly, and run dead silent. Besides the 120mm exhaust fan the case came with, there's only these and a 14cm side fan (with a SilverStone dust filter - the HAF 912 filters all other intakes) as far as case cooling goes. A 4790K CPU (with a 912 EVO) and R9 270X GPU, etc. just don't get hot in there. It quietly does the job even when editing and converting video files. Silence and performance = having my cake and eating it too.
Cons: Like most makes, these come with chrome-colored screws. Cooler Master themselves mostly puts out black cases, and a simple but nice asthetic touch is to not draw attention to the fan's mounting screws. They should package these with black screws. What would it cost 'em? A few pennies?
Other Thoughts: The HAF 912 came with braces that fit perfectly in the front 20cm fan. You can see it's intended to receive one of these there in most assemblies. If you order a HAF 912, don't hesitate to get at least one Cooler Master 20cm fan too.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 750 B 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified 750W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 5 Year Warranty 120-PB-0750-KR SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular NEW 4th Gen CPU Certified Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready Power Supply
Pros: Long cables - and LOTS of them. Powerful enough to drive a GTX 760 in demanding games. It's pretty quiet, too.
Cons: SATA connectors have way too little length between connectors per cable. Even in a microATX case I had to use two cables for just one optical drived and one HDD because the connector couldn't reach from one to the other on just one cable.
Other Thoughts: If I had it to do over again I might cough up another $30 or so for a more efficient PSU. Still, I can't say I regret the purchase. EVGA makes good stuff, IMHO.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful frame rates and resolution. Easy to get the latest drivers set up in Linux Mint:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
All my games from the Steam store run very nicely. Hi-Def MKV videos are gorgeouse.
Cons: nVidia still lags AMD in one respect: HDMI audio is a bear to get working in Linux! Even older AMD cards don't have that issue.
You'll push your luck with a 500W PSU. I burned out a Corsair 600W (Good for Corsair! It didn't hurt anything else in the system as may have happened with a lesser quality brand.) after about two weeks. Get a high-quality 750W or higher if you use one of these cards.
Other Thoughts: My trouble may have been a defective PSU, but I doubt it. Since dropping in an EVGA SuperNOVA 750W PSU (pretty darn cheap from the Egg!) there's been absolutely no issues like were seen with that poor little 600W box. I thought I'd get away with it since there wasn't a lot of hardware running and I didn't over-clock anything. Not so.READ FULL REVIEW
