This review is from: GELID Solutions FN-FW12PL-18 120mm Green LED Case cooler
Pros: Great, love the color. lets a soft white/green down on the MoBo. Mounted inside on a top mounted H100i. In pull. With PWM, the noise and fan speeds are easily controlled.
Cons: A little loud, but these things can move some air (check the cfm ratings) they are pricey, but for what I paid for the rest of the rig, its a small price. Wish I had ordered 2 more for the top of my radiator, instead of the rosewill's. I keep them in quiet mode, and don't know they are even there.
Other Thoughts: using to cool a h100i, with CM scout advanced. In intense gaming, for over an hour, the highest core on my ivy bridge 4820 is 41 dg Celsius. Great radiator fan.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very clean design. It works well. Runs cool,, was worried with the "open" design putting heat into the case instead of out the back, like the "box" cards. No increase on temps at all.
Cons: The board was slightly warped, its almost impossible to tell. Thought about a RMA because of this, but it runs fantastic.
Other Thoughts: SLI'd with an EVGA FTW, about the same specs. This card runs about 10 degree's Celsius lower than the FTW. Still use EVGA precision. Tweak the fan curve a little, and in SLI this card stays in the mid 40's with fan at 55%, max load on all modern games I have ran. Best bargain out there. Get the 670's while you can, looks like NVIDIA is about to discontinue this chip...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great layout, clean, well constructed board. The manual leaves a little to be desired, but enough to figure it out. Worked out of the box with my RAM (corsair dominator xmp @ 1600mhz)
Cons: No CMOS reset button, have to use the jumper. don't use the ASUS software. Its BUGGY and gives a lot of false reading. As someone else said, Asus makes great hardware, but the software leaves a lot to be desired.
**the x79 chipset boots slow. I don't think this is the boards fault though**
Other Thoughts: Running with Ivy Bridge 4820. Did the usb bios flash, and all worked well. Only takes a usb drive, and the 24 pin power attached (no memory or processor). Bought this to game. With 2x GTX 680's all is WELL. PCI X@ 3.0 is there!! Combined with a lot of airflow & corsair H100i, couldn't ask for better.READ FULL REVIEW
