Pros: -Completely quiet, no coil whine
-Great cables. Some people don't like them because they say they're too stiff or difficult to maneuver. Ribbon cables are like that. But the advantage is that they can lay flat against each other and stack, overall taking up less space.
Plus, they flex and will keep their shape, so you can mold them as you like.
Only thing I didn't like was the 24 pin main power, as that was divided up into two cables with wires going to different plugs, which is unnecessary and actually makes that cable bulkier. But this is minor.
-Packaged VERY well, unlike the Corsair 750d case I bought
Cons: Had a problem with my mobo and I couldn't figure out if this thing was actually on. I used the paperclip test, which is where you connect the green wire to a black ground wire, tested a fan and found out the PSU was ok.
Considering this thing is dead silent whether on or off, a small, subtle indicator light somewhere would be helpful for troubleshooting.
Other Thoughts: Going to use this to power SLI GTX770s.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very small and cheap
Cons: See below
Other Thoughts: Originally this thing was pulling less than 1mbps whereas my laptop was pulling 25+mbps off my wifi. I updated the driver and now it pulls in anywhere from 5mbps - 10mbps.
If you have slow internet, this would probably be ok. But if you're paying for 15+mbps speeds, you don't want to bottle neck what you're paying for through a poorly performing wifi adapter.
Because of the poor speed, I'm not going to use this. It's basically a waste of money.
This review is from: NZXT Grid Ten Port Fan Hub
Pros: - Comes with 3 fan extensions, 1 is male to male so not very useful. The other two are 4 pin extensions, maybe around 8".
-White light is nice, but not too bright or distracting. Just let's you know the little black box is there and receiving power.
Cons: -Molex power connector is a bit cheap. The pins were pushing out when I tried to connect it. Not a big problem though.
Other Thoughts: I use this to power 6 Corsair AF 140 quiet edition fans and 2 Corsair AF 120 quiet edition fans. Those fans don't need controllers because they already run at low enough speeds, so this little accessory cleaned up the install and saved me $100 on unnecessary fan controllers.
Overall great buy!
