Pros: The IPS panel is beautiful. Mine came to me with zero dead pixels and worked right out of the box, no messing with connections and preferences. The swivel function is great for webpages and pdf files. The raising and lowering mechanism is really smooth and sturdy. I've loved this monitor ever since I picked it up. (I got it at a local distributer and I didn't get it through Newegg but I wanted to share how much I love the monitor).
Cons: The cable management bracket on the back was a nice touch but it's finicky and I've kept it off. The monitor is only 60 hz; all IPS panels are but I mention this because it might not be the most ideal monitor for gamers due to the input lag and the motion blur it MAY cause. However, using this monitor mainly for gaming, I've had zero problems. I'd take a little motion blur with vibrant colors over any 120 hz TN panel.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SILVERSTONE AP121 120mm Case cooler
Pros: Very high static pressure. Great for radiators and for front intakes.
Incredibly low noise. I'm using it on 12V right now and I can't hear a thing. If you can, there are 7V and 5V adaptors that come with it.
That strange air channeling thing works like a charm. Have it pointed right at my CPU heatsink. Lowers temps by a few degrees.
Comes with rubber fan mounts.
Other Thoughts: When I get more money, I'm intending on buying a few more.
Also, I bought them for $14. I don't know whether or not their list price of $22 would be a good deal. May just want to go with Noctua in that price range.
This review is from: BitFenix Spectre All White 230mm Case Fan
Pros: It turned on and pushed a bit of air.
Cons: After waiting for two weeks for this fan to come in (despite my 3 day shipping), I realized within seconds of plugging it in that it was not worth the wait. I'm not sure if it's common among all BitFenix fans of this type, but when mine turned on it made a pulsating, ticking noise. This is problematic because I bought this fan specifically for the low noise that it advertised. After filing for an RMA, I found out that it cost more to ship the fan back than actually just keeping the fan and losing the money I had paid for it. Overall, it was just a drawn out, bad experience.
Other Thoughts: Buy the Spectre Pro if you want a 230 mm fan that works well (I'm guessing).READ FULL REVIEW
