This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15B 120mm Blue LED Effizio Quiet Case Fan
Pros: Pushes a good amount of air.
Blue LEDs look good in LanBoy Air Blue
Helped drop CPU temp 3' when placed in back of case
Cons: It is the noisiest fan in the case by far. 6 other Antec fans are a lot quieter and they are meant to be 17db or quiter. The hum of the fan is a little annoying and will probably be replaced by a different fan.
Other Thoughts: After my H80i died, I'm looking to replace with air cooling. I like quiet, and so does everybody else. The hum of the fan is just not up to par.
I've hooked it up to a four pin and to system fan connection. Both are noisy. It's cooling power is very good and I'm impressed with that.
Maybe I got a dud. It got great reviews and that is why I chose it.
Pros: Decent cooler for i7 2600K @ 3.8 (All are max temps out of all cores)
Quiet during normal use, gets a little more noisy when gaming.
I'd say a good cooler for everyday use.
Very easy to install and comes with all that was needed.
Looks good in my case (LanBoy Air Blue)
Does a very good job of dropping temps after gaming session.
Cons: Gets a little noisy under load
OC to 4.0 and temps reach 83 which is in the "still safe" range, but not great.
Open air case with plenty of fans.
It's not the greatest for gaming or pushing the cpu (OC).
It's the only fan I can hear in the case, but not too loud or annoying.
Other Thoughts: I am fairly happy with this fan for what it is. Low Profile, quiet under normal circumstances, and no tricks or gimmicks to install.
My corsair H80i started to leak after 2 years of use and almost set fire to my R9 290X and I am now hesitant to go back to water cooling. Something about burning down the house.
I have plenty of ventilation and fans to create good air flow, but this little guy still seems to struggle to keep temps down, but does keep them well within acceptable ranges.
I would recommend this to any one who wants a low profile cooler better than stock.
I didn't want to go with a monstrous tower cooler or water cooler even though they are much better coolers. I like having a nice open and organized case.
Pros: Second lot of this ram. Unfortunately my liquid cooling blocks a slot, and so I am unable to install with other set.
It works like a charm.
Great price on Newegg.
CL8 is nice and fast.
Blue looks great from above or the side.
XMP makes for an easy setup at full speed.
Other Thoughts: I really do love the quality of G.SKill.
The RipJaws X and Sniper series are excellent.
Glad to get away from the Corsair brand. Their memory is good, warranty is not that of G.Skill and their colors/design??? No where near as good G.Skill
Great for gaming and designing/modding games.
