Pros: Moves a ton of air.. Super quiet!! With the fans at 100% the only thing I hear is the air moving through my case!
Cons: What is the deal with the rubber mounting thingies?
Other Thoughts: I bought this with 3 120mm fans of the same model to replace all the circulation fans in my case. I have a Corsair H60 cooling my FX8350 and the stock fan was a nuisance. Just too loud to tolerate. I put two 120mm fans in a push pull config on the rad and a 120mm at the front of the case with a 140 venting hot air out of the top. The 120 at the front forces enough air in to supply my GTX 770's (SLI) at keep them at a solid 60C under load. The two fans on the rad move a heavy amount of air across it to keep the CPU under 50C while gaming. Highly recommend these fans!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I dont have AC at my house so ambient temps in the summer can reach 35C or higher. Idle temps for my FX8350 are around 37C - 40C (it is summer). Under load while gaming I never see temps above 50C. On occasion the CPU temps can reach 55C but that is on real CPU loaded games. So it does as advertised and I got exactly what I expected. Happy with the product.
Cons: The fan is ridiculously noisy. In my house the fan has to run at 100% and it sounds like a small turbine engine. I have ordered some high CFM low RPM fans for my case and will throw the low quality corsair fan to the wolves. That is the reason for the -1 egg.
Other Thoughts: Would be nice if the pump connector had a molex adapter so I could plug it directly into the PSU. Otherwise, great product at a good price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It seems to work really well. Fast load speeds, smooth gaming and decent Idle temps. People told me this chip would bottle neck my GPU's (GTX770 4gb sli) but I haven't noticed any drop in performance with dual 1080p monitors. Games max out very easily and this chip seems to keep a steady 60fps with the 2 gpu's. Very pleased with my purchase.
Cons: This chip is a power hungry beast and the stock CPU cooler is just awful. Have you ever wondered what a 80mm fan sounds like at 6000rpm? If you use this chip for anything other that web browsing you will find out. It sounds like a jet turbine spitting out a swarm of angry bees at a sack of cats being beaten by bag pipes! Invest in a after market cooler if you do t want to hear the scream of a banshee while playing your AAA game or watching a movie.READ FULL REVIEW
