Noctua A-Series NF-A6x25 60mm Blades with AAO Frame, SSO2 Bearing Premium Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Expensive, but good. 11/23/2013

This review is from: Noctua A-Series NF-A6x25 60mm Blades with AAO Frame, SSO2 Bearing Premium Fan

Pros: Peerless build quality
Durable & Reliable
Whisper Quiet
Includes nearly any accessory you might need
Excellent packaging

Cons: Cost - Expensive; but you pay a heavy premium for what may be the finest fans available

Noise - Don't get me wrong. These are among the quietest fans I've ever used. There are quieter ones, but finding one that is quieter & built this well is exceedingly difficult. I started using Noctua fans roughly 3-4 years ago. At that time I was living in Korea, and noticed that humidity can have quite an impact on noise. After a nice wet summer, all of my Noctua fans started to make a lot more noise (kind of a soft, low grumbling sound) than when new (still fairly quiet, but it was a large difference). Now I am in an arid part of the US, and haven't seen the same issues.

Other Thoughts: If these were quite a bit cheaper, I would replace every fan in every system I own with Noctua fans.

If you live in a dry area, keep the dust from building up, and you should have a very quiet and reliable fan.

CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Mechanical Keyboard for a Reasonable Price 10/04/2013

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches

Pros: Fantastic key-feel. Build quality seems to be very nice. If this keyboard lasts, it is most definitely worth the price!

Cons: Wouldn't mind it being quieter or having a shorter key-travel, but that isn't really a con as it's perfectly fine the way it is.

Other Thoughts: I've used pretty much every mechanical keyboard out there: Buckling Spring, ALPS, Topre, and every Cherry switch aside from Green, Grey, and Clear. Of the Cherry switches, this is by far my favourite. I love a quick switch with a tactile feel. Here's my brief run-down:

Cherry MX Red: Lightning fast, but lack the 'clicky' feel

Cherry MX Brown: Clicky feel is way too light - almost non-existent as far as I am concerned

Cherry MX Black: Firm, but lacking the clicky feel I like

Cherry MX Blue: Nice and snappy, with quick response

ALPS: All around great, but not quite as snappy feel

Buckling Spring: Great feel, but noisy & heavy key-stroke

Topre: Really nice, but absurdly priced

SILVERSTONE FM121 120mm Case Cooling Fan
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Not anywhere near as quiet as I've come to expect. 06/22/2013

This review is from: SILVERSTONE FM121 120mm Case Cooling Fan

Pros: It works reliably and pushes a fair amount of air.

Cons: Much louder than what I expect from fans - especially from a 120mm fan at lower RPMs.

Other Thoughts: If you plan on using it above it's lowest settings, you will hear it loud and clear.
