This review is from: Noctua Noctua NF-B9 redux 1600,PWM, SSO Bearing Fan_ Retail
Pros: Will probably buy x2 120's now(maybe).
I bought this hoping to dampen the impending hurricane of a fan that came with the min-itx evga heat sink for you guessed it, my evga Hadron air.
Now main thing I noticed FIRST DAY,
- No sound, thought my computer died during the installation, Nope, the fan is just too quiet. To quiet the 120 corsair AF fans make more sound. EVEN so still quiet so I'm happy.
-The fans are crazy sturdy.
-The amount of air these things output being such small fans is still blowing my mind.
-Heat was not and issue still the same with the stock fan but they do perform better at higher loads, as well being dead silent. WHAT?
I give these fans 11.5/10
Though this is my first Noctua fan, it's not my first fan. Going from said quiet cooler master to corsair, this little 92 mm fan performs at the top in sound and airflow.
Heck, it even cools down the gpu, for some ... reason ... I can not explain those kind of dynamics.
In all this one little piece missing from my build changed a lot. I'm a happy customer nothing else to say.
Cons: - The only Con really depends on the build, because my case is extremely small form factor. The 4 pin sleeve does not allow a lot much curling or bending. It's not stiff or unbearable to use just not a laced sleeve, feels like a rubber sleeve. Strange but it's a minor annoyance that can be fixed with cable tie.
Other Thoughts: - I really was surprised honestly on the advertising and recommendations from YouTube tech reviews and online reviews. It's rare for my case to choose a product that works 110% as advertise. Going to update later but main point is the fan works and is silent. No more revving hurricane sounds.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: ....that this ssd is the best in the market.
- No problems with cloning only took 15 min from a 120gb Samsung Evo
- It's fast as hell. Though it's small it's noticeable I have 5 second boot times from my last ssd which had 10 second and I wasn't even expecting that, it just happened.
- 256gb is a reason I also got it for the extra space to put in Maya, and Photoshop.
Thank you Samsung for an amazing ssd.
Cons: I am not going to put down any stars because the Pro is just to amazing I can't be a selfish jerk and bring it down because of my delivery experience. But I'll rant.
I PAID EXTRA for delivery and who did I get as a carrier? ONTRAC, freakin ONTRAC, I wait on the exact date it was supposed to come. Nope, ok maybe it was delayed it happens. Next day, Nope .... 5 days later form the original date it was supposed to come. It arrives within a small plain envelope with no Far Cry 4 code of course.
UPS made it even before the assigned date and nothing damaged , I have had two experiences with ONTRAC and it was a horrible waste of time. Next time If I can I'll cancel my order if I see ontrac delivering my stuff, no way am I letting them handle anything anymore.
Other Thoughts: I love this ssd overall I just can't get over the fact I have top performance. It just put's you at a stand still if your addicted to upgrading your computer annually. It's just that fast.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I guess it's just from the tweaks but I love this card even at default. I wanted to see how far I can bring up the clocks without it going 10c higher but at least enough to see results. I was actually surprised.
I got the card to 1200 core clock and 1600 memory clock. Voltage wouldn't let me keep it at +5 or less and stuck at +6. Thank you msi afterburner.
It runs, that's all I'm going to be able to describe it. It just runs.
Upgrading from a 7850 1gb and yea, there is a huge difference. Loaded up Tomb raider,Bioshock with dlc, Dead Space, Battlefield, and Goat simulator for fun and it just runs +60 fps with/without v-sync as well. Beautiful construction and A FREAKIN BACKPLATE, whatttt?
6gb push this card to construct and render anything in Maya or 3d max without small hiccups. Of course that was expected and I wasn't let down.
What else .... it runs 2 monitors at at 35c idle? Fine temps for me.
Cons: Only con would have to be .... the software I guess (afterburner)? Can't be a big negative but to unlock the voltage for the card you need msi afterburner 3.0.0 beat 19 and it doesn't update from the version the disk is in. You need to go to the MSI Afterburner site and download it from there. Or else you'll get a 404 error updating from the software in the disk. Das about it.
