Pros: LED's are pretty nice, they come in a darker blue though so if you try to match them to a CM Sickleflow it's a bit off. It moves air, keeps my computer pretty cool, I have three of them in my case and the single 120mm version of this exact fan is probably louder than the three 140mm versions that I have in there.
Cons: All of them click. One was clicking really bad because I guess one of the cables was hitting the fan blade so I had to pull back the Rosewill sticker slightly (which wasn't hard because it was already a little lifted) and pull the cable up out of the fans way and put the sticker back down, and maybe that's the cause on all three of them? I have no idea but I only fixed one of them because the clicking was soft enough for me to not mind. Also they use self tapping screws so when your screwing it in it sounds pretty rough and you need a little more force than usual, lots of cracking noises. Also you can see that at the 3-pin connector there previously was a molex attachment that they cut off (you can see two little wires in the connector that are just straight cut out) and the reason I know it's a molex connector is because the 120mm fan has the same connector, but without the molex connector cut off. Also the LED's are secured by what looks like metal and a big glob of glue, which I mean you can't see in my case once mounted but it's there and worth pointing out. If you wanted to change the LED's maybe it would be an easy mod though?
Other Thoughts: I'm using them in my case and they do what I need them to do, which is move air and look pretty, so I can't say I regret my purchase but I wouldn't consider them "high quality" by any means. Also if your wondering what the static pressure is on these fans (mmH20) you're not gonna find out (I asked about the 120mm version) they just gave me the CFM. And that was contacting Rosewill not Newegg. Once they got in there though I was happy enough, pretty nice looking, if I replace them it'll only be because the clicking gets worse, it's mostly just out of the box cheapness that might turn you off, but then again, they're cheap fans. Also worth mentioning, the 120mm is transparent and the 140mm is translucent (as far as a black fan goes)? I mean I could tell from the pictures but I just don't know why they wouldn't make them all transparent or all translucent. You figure you'd want them to match.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650 G 80 PLUS GOLD Certified 650W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Full Modular PSU 10 Year Warranty 120-PG-0650-GR NEW 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready Power Supply
Pros: Powers on my computer.
Cons: This unit does power on my computer, however in a certainly alarming way. I have already been through one RMA with this unit (So I've tried two units now) and both of them have the same issue. Both units have made a crackling/arcing/buzzing sounds that I can hear over all of my 140mm fans. It's not my GPU, I've taken it out completely and it still makes the noise. I've taken a cardboard tube and listened to every individual part of my MOBO, so the noise isn't coming off of there. It's distinctly coming from the back/bottom of my computer case where the PSU is. I built my computer about a month ago and I haven't been able to use it apart from the initial build tests to verify that everything else was working properly, and any questions that people asked on various troubleshooting forums. So my new gaming rig has been useless for a little bit over a months time now. I've checked out my voltages, and I don't see any fluctuations even if I benchmark. I've tested the outlets in my house to make sure they were outputting sufficient power. I've tried putting everything on a different rail in case there was too much of a power draw. Nada. It's 100% an issue with this PSU. Maybe it's just not playing nice with my Gigabyte board (And considering I got a new unit from a new batch, it wouldn't be whatever old issue there was with Gigabyte boards). So far I've paid $111.85 for the first unit, plus an additional $33.87 on my first RMA. I'm currently at $145.72 for a unit that produces noise too concerning for me to attempt to use the computer. EVGA said they might set me up with a third RMA with free shipping, but if I get the third one and it produces the same noises, what exactly am I expected to do? Keep RMAing the thing indefinitely? Anyways the first RMA with EVGA was smooth so I'll credit them on their initial customer service, the replies are coming to a slow regarding the next RMA though. If you look up "NEX650G Coil Whine/Buzz/Noise" or "Why you should not buy an EVGA SuperNova NEX650G/750G" You'll now see my growing concerns with my purchase. I have several videos up on the issue and am trying my best to get this issue sorted out without pestering EVGA, I've been to at least 5 different forums so far and the general consensus is keep RMAing it until it works or that I should've bought a High-End Seasonic for my build. Anyways I'm certainly trying my best to solve the issue on my own or get some decent answers, and I'm also trying to work with EVGA customer support. My experience may not be your experience however. So I'll give EVGA a good rating for customer support, but this product just... It's just not working.
Other Thoughts: Hopefully this issue will get resolved between me and EVGA, if I can edit this review later I'll definitely correct it if they help me out.READ FULL REVIEW
