This review is from: Silverstone CPF01 3.94" PWM Fan Splitter Cable
Pros: -Works as it should
-Fits my fans and my motherboard with no issues
-Still shows on my computer as having four case fans despite only using three motherboard fan headers.
-Worked by just plugging both of my fans into it and plugging it into my motherboard.
Other Thoughts: I built myself a mid tower using an Antec 900 case and a Gigabyte Z87-HD3 motherboard (among other things). I forgot to check to make sure that there were enough fan headers to cover all of the case fans, which I was one short (three headers, four case fans). Not only that, but the cord of the 200mm top fan was not long enough to safely reach any of the headers. Even though I had sufficient airflow to keep everything cool, I really wanted to have optimal air flow as space was a little tight. I saw this was only $4 (at the time) so I figured I'd give it a shot. Not only does it work, my computer can detect both fans through the one header and speed control still works on them. It's been over three months now and I've still had no issues. It was definitely well worth the $4.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this cord on sale, worked pretty well since I bought it. Picture quality was what you would expect from any HDMI cord.
Cons: I have had the cord for about a year and a half. I almost always keep it plugged into the same two things and barely remove it. A few days ago it stopped working. I noticed the part that plugs into the device was coming loose from the cord itself. I tried plugging it into multiple other devices and can't get any sort of a connection. There was also a slight lag when using the cord that was a little noticeable.
Other Thoughts: Guess you get what you pay for. I'm a little surprised it lasted as long as it did which is why I'm only deducting two eggs from the review.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked great while it lasted, still somewhat works.
Cons: Bought this back in June of this year, worked great up until about a month ago. Since a month ago, more and more problems have been arising with it that happened with my last one when it started failing, and now I'm getting blue screens on startup every other time and my computer is having a harder and harder time recognizing the hard drive. Reformatting doesn't change anything and my computer is fine with another hard drive I borrowed and tested with. I'm giving it 2 eggs since it's actually giving me signs it is failing and giving me time to back up my data, but I'm not very happy having to spend more money on another hard drive.READ FULL REVIEW
