Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Red LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Non-obnoxious LED
-Fairly quiet, especially when using a fan controller or motherboard fan throttling
-Decent price
-Black frame with red LED's match a red/black theme perfectly
-Moves a good amount of air

Cons: -The sleeve bearing isn't so long life as they claim, bearing started dying and became noisy in under 2yrs
-Bearing is sealed with plastic, no rubber cap like most fans so there's no way to drop some SAE-20 oil in it to extend life.
-Not quiet at full power, has noticeable air turbulence noise. needs fan throttling if you're going for silence.

Other Thoughts: Kinda disappointed the bearing wore out and became noisy in less than 2 years, and even more disappointed that it has a plastic sealed bearing under the rear sticker so you can't even oil it (most fans have a rubber cap). For the price these are great fans, but you get what you pay for. Don't expect these to last forever. I run my computer 24/7 though.

DUALSHOCK 4 Controller for Sony PS4 - Black

5 out of 5 eggs Best Sony controller yet! 11/11/2013

This review is from: DUALSHOCK 4 Controller for Sony PS4 - Black

Pros: -Improved shape and grip, fits better in hands.
-Feels more durable than DS3
-Much improved L2/R2 triggers, no slip, true analog, no accidental presses when setting controller down.
-DPAD feels more defined and less mushy.
-Face buttons aren't as mushy as DS3
-Analog sticks feel tighter and more responsive. No accidental L3/R3 clicks, and it's easier to press L3/R3 while stick is titled.
-PS button is much easier to press.
-Works natively on windows without drivers, pairs effortlessly over bluetooth too.

Cons: -Analog sticks may take some getting used to depending on your thumb grip.
-The start/select buttons (Share/Options) are rather awkward to press, and require a lot of force. It's hard to press them repeatedly.
-Unable to turn off the light. It can get annoying if you have a glossy monitor or other reflective surface in front of it.
-Vibration and trackpad doesn't work on PC

Other Thoughts: The concave analog sticks can dig into your thumb a bit if you use the bottom and top of your thumb to push/pull the stick instead of pressing the tip of your thumb into the top like designed. This will probably require a change in your stick grip, but probably for the best. I also noticed the analog sticks are shorter, which gives you less torque, so they are a bit stiffer. Some may prefer this. I haven't tested on my PS3 yet, but I've tested on PC. Most games will work with x360ce or Xinput Wrapper, which makes the controller appear to be an xbox 360 gamepad.

TIP: To pair on windows, hold the share+PS button to make the controller discoverable.

Warning: May not pair with all bluetooth adapters, my cheap generic USB BT adapter I used with the DS3 wouldn't work, but my Asus one worked fine.

This would be great if sony or someone else would write some drivers so the vibration and touchpad would actually function on PC. Overall I love the new shape but the select/start buttons are kind of a deal breaker. If we could turn the trackpad into select/start by pressing on the left or right side of it, it would be perfect!

NZXT Kraken X60 RL-KRX60-01 Ultra Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 280MM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs great wc system for the price 07/10/2013

This review is from: NZXT Kraken X60 RL-KRX60-01 Ultra Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 280MM

Pros: -Large 280mm rad
-Long tubes
-Color changeable LED on pump
-Powerful fans
-Extra screws for Push/Pull configuration
-Liquid temperature sensors in software (which DOES work in Win8)
-Fan control in software, etc
-More features than the other competitor with a 280mm rad.
-Nice nylon wrapped wires, good length on the USB wire (I was able to run it behind my motherboard).

Cons: -Fans are EXTREMELY loud at full blast, and not quite silent at 25% (the lowest they go)
-Fan control software doesn't let you set any fan slop above 60c, 60c is automatically 100%... poor design.
-No zip ties, a few would have been nice to position the tubes better, but not a big deal since they are easy to obtain.
-Labeled part bags would have made the instructions easier to follow.
-5yr warranty would have been nice, like the other competitor.

Other Thoughts: Overall very pleased with this system and glad I didn't go with the C brand since this has more features. I'd like to see a bit of improvement on the software though, and less CPU usage. (I recommend exiting it when you don't need it). I had to do a bit of case modding to get mine to fit, but I'm using a Lian-Li case.

I don't know what the other reviewers were complaining about though, I didn't notice any manufacturing defects and the software definitely DOES work in Windows 8 x64

Highly recommended at this price if you have a case that can fit a 280mm radiator, just be aware that not all cases space the fans the same distance (I had to mod the holes a bit on mine). A cheap custom 280mm watercooling setup would have probably cost $200-$250, so this is a good deal.
