GIGABYTE GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Looks pretty.

Cons: Where to start? built in sound is terrible. Intermittently becomes staticy and distorted. This issue has not been fixed by driver updates at all. I have contacted gigabyte, have yet to hear from them. The sound issue also seems to be affect video playback as well. Furthermore, unless you have their "Killer network manager", which does not function correctly, installed, you cannot get on the internet because it's tied to the LAN drivers. The internet connection is terrible as well. I have a great internet connection and all my other computer's work great. This one however takes a good while just to load a video on streaming.

Other Thoughts: I would strongly advise against purchasing this product. Just get something else. I have fully updated everything, installed everything, and nothing has fixed the issue's I am experiencing.

The bios is confusing as well, and the mouse cursor in the bios is not at all correctly calibrated. Although this is less of an issue because most people don't use their mouse in the bios.

Noctua NH-U14S 140x150x25 ( NF-A15 PWM) SSO2-Bearing ( Self-stabilising oil-presure bearing ) CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Decent construction quality, excellent packaging, wonderful instructions. The actual mounting system for the heatsink itself was absolutely the easiest I have encountered yet. Which is odd considering the fan mounting system is absolutely the worse thing I have ever seen. If not the cheapest, it's like they're design department just threw their hands up, and when with the cheapest thing possible to mount the fan to the heatsink.

Cons: The problem is, that this cooler just will not work for me in a push/pull configuration without an annoying buzzing noise, loud enough to be heard across the room, inside a case with 6 other fans running at full blast. I have installed and reinstalled the provided fan and another noctua 140mm pressure optimized fan in push and pull and push/pull configurations, and no matter what I do, cannot get the buzzing to stop. With 1 fan in the cooler seems to work ok, but that leaves me with an extra noctua fan just laying around, since I have no room in the case for it :(

Other Thoughts: The fan mounting system for this cooler is absolutely terrible. I don't know what Noctua was thinking, using such a tiny little wire to mount these nice fans. That's the reason for the 2 star rating, from a company that manufacture's such high quality (although they're still hideous) fans, I expected a lot more than I got. They need to go back to the drawing board for the fan mounts (and the fan colors, but they've known that from the beginning and just dont care)

I can't really recommend this cooler, not with the buzzing sound it makes in push/pull, and not with such a half a**'ed fan mounting system.

Cougar Turbine CF-T12S4 120mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs nice and quiet and orange 04/17/2014

This review is from: Cougar Turbine CF-T12S4 120mm Case Fan

Pros: they're orange, they come in a four pack, and they ARENT MOLEX. Need I say more? they seem to move a lot of air despite being quiet.

Cons: No orange LED's (why someone doesn't do more purple and orange LED lit fans I will never understand). They aren't 140's (I'd just like to see a company do a 4 pack of 140mm 3 or 4 pin fans, anything but molex) That's really it. These seem great.
