This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro Solid White 200mm Case Fan
Pros: High air flow, quiet and came with all the screws and accessories you need for install.
Cons: Very low compatibility.
I'm upset that seller failed to mention, that this fan can't be turned around and installed both ways.
This fan can only fit on the side and can only be used as an exhaust fan.
So I gave it a try, I reversed my top fans for intake and reversed side fan for out take. Air-flow was excellent and fan was quiet, CPU runs about 2-4 C colder, but now my GPU is not getting as much air and runs about 5 - 10 C hotter. I am unable to play games without freezing due to it overheating, I have no choice, but to send the fan back
This review is from: Far Cry 3 PC Game
Pros: Graphics,coding and very fun .
more about the grahics , when i first saw BF3 i was amazed at the adaptive AA , but this game amazed me once again , the lighting effects are very spectacular i can't even explain the rest. just get a Dx11 GPU and see for your self.
RUNS well on my AMD CPU, i was getting between 92% and 99% most of the time. some seens it would consistantly stay at 99% for over 20 mins without dropping.
I liked the cut seens and the story.
Cons: only issue i had was when i was just figuring out the new voltages for my GPU on this game , everytime i had to reload the game i couldn't skip the cut scenes ; which is sorta nice so you don't skip it by pressing exit when trying to get to the menu , but still can be anoying , anyways doesn't deserve to have an egg taken.
Other Thoughts: CPU:Phenom 965 x4 3924mhz
RAM:1600mhz 8GIGs 7-7-7-24
HDD:SSDboot/w 4x2TB black raid 0
this game is very rough on your GPU not a CON though, I normaly ran very well at 99% GPU usage on games like BF3 for hours on end , but on this game my display driver kept not responding i had to up the voltage a tad for stability.
Pros: quiet and fast.
Massive improvements over my previous xfx 5850 in DX11 games , in some cases 600%+ improvements.I was impressed how well my AMD phenom II 965 Scales the GPU. HIGH res future proofed
Cons: Freezes from lack of voltage in Crysis 2(had to take an egg), I either have downclock core or up the voltage to fix it.Driver issues from some games unable to load up while AA turned on or some games unable to read the 3GB memory locks the seetings on minamum, this specific issue is with all 3GB+ cards though.O btw idk if this is a con , depends on your opinion , but this card is wide , very wide measure your case , I have a large case i spend 300$ on two months ago and i can't close the door on it , but it still fits lol :P
Other Thoughts: I can't wait to buy another one for crossfire , I'll probely wait for 8xxx series ;READ FULL REVIEW
