This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X79-UP4 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This card has been a solid performer and works great!
Cons: Limit on RAID through the on board Marvell controllers to pairs. Memory moduals are VERY close to the top PCi slot which prevented me from being able to use RAM coolers, but not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: It has been very easy to setup and get running. Had some issues loading RAID drivers, but there is a great video on Youtube for that. Every connection I could ever need has been taken care of in this board.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KINGWIN FPX-003 Multi-Function LCD Fan Controller Panel Black
Pros: I had some trouble installing this unit because of my case design didn't like short equipment, but that is the cases design fault, not this devices. It controls 4 100mm fans with LEDS and looks great. I wish I had gotten the one with the USB port instead of the eSATA (I already have 2 on my case). I like the 4 temperature readings. and individual fan control.
Cons: I wish it would have given some input about being able to install between the CPU and the heatsink or given some mounting squares or something to mount the probes instead of just hanging wire.
Other Thoughts: I haven't had need to use the card readers yet, but I really like the multifunction of this device. Cables are all good and long and the construction seems solid enough. Looks good and works well, what else could I ask for?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: G.SKILL FTB-3500C5-D Fans
Pros: bright (white) LEDs
Cons: Didn't fit my MOBO. It would have been touching my video card and bridging multiple pins with it's metal frame. As such I couldn't install it over my memory. I instead jury-rigged it behind my open drive bays to provide extra air movement and intake.
Other Thoughts: I didn't realize the LEDs are white, and they are BRIGHT. They totally overpower all the blue LEDs in my case. I will probably remove them from my case, but its a decent enough idea, especially for the cost.READ FULL REVIEW
