This review is from: GELID Solutions Slim 12 PL 120mm Blue LED Case Fan
Pros: Very quiet
LEDs are bright and clear without being distracting
Moves a decent amount of air
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: So far, everything is working well. I installed this in my PC's side panel and so far it is working great. It's extremely quiet, as noted above and the LEDs are spot on for my needs. Moves more air that I was expecting for a slim, low RPM fan.
Holding back on one egg just for lack of time since install. Will amend after some real time has passed.
This review is from: APEVIA CF8SL-BGN 80mm Green LED Case Fan w/Grill
Pros: Bright LEDs
Cons: I'm not sure if I got some defective ones, or what but the airflow from two of them is absolutely pathetic. The one I have set up as an intake fan seems to work okay, but the two exhaust fans may as well not be there for all the air they move.
While it isn't excessive by any means, for the amount of work they seem to be doing they're all quite loud.
Other Thoughts: Well see if an RMA is worth the time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI 970A-G45 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Layout, features, price
Cons: One of the PCI slots is shot. Doesn't bother me enough to RMA, since I'm only using one PCI card, but diagnosing it was a bit of a pain.
Other Thoughts: Like a lot of people, I got thrown by the bios update (though to be fair to MSI, I had crushed three pins on my FX4100, which probably goes a long way towards explaining the failures to POST). Once I got those straightened out, it seems to run beautifully. Like I said in the cons section, one of the PCI slots appears to be dead, but that isn't enough of an issue for me to go through with RMAing it, hence the 4 starsREAD FULL REVIEW
