Pros: When these fans are not defective, they are silent!
Cons: After one month of use, one out of the two fans is emitting a noticeable noise which is louder than my h100i's stock fans. It also seems to vibrate the "grating" on the top of my case (Obsidian 350D) even though I am using the rubber washers that came with my h100i. This causes an annoying noise which is the opposite of why I purchased these fans.
Other Thoughts: I bought these to replace the stock fans in my h100i and was disappointed that one of the fans ended up being louder than the stock fans. I will admit I do have a low tolerance for fan noise but I believe one of the fans is defective.
Also I did not research these closely but they are different connectors than the stock h100i fans. These are 3 pin whereas the stock h100i fans are 4-pin
Pros: -Great looking case
-Has a handle
-large case window
-fans are quiet when working properly
Cons: -Fans appear to be VERY low quality and I had the rear exhaust fan DOA
-hard to find space for cable management. really not any space behind mobo tray
-a bit heavy (depends on your build though)
-metallic "sticker" that surrounds front/top i/o panel and power button doesn't adhere properly and always sticks up a bit
Other Thoughts: -no usb 3.0 on front i/o
-This would be a five star case if the fans were of excellent quality and weren't DOA. I like the concept of being able to turn off the led lighting in the fans but I went ahead and bought another brand of fans without going through coolermaster's support and RMA process.
Pros: Excellent card, runs every game I throw at it with high to max settings on stock speeds. Never had any issues, after updating to latest drivers. Overall very happy with this product, but I have some concerns. (see cons)
Cons: The card seems to be sagging quite a bit, on the side where the power cables plug in, and I am worried this might damage the pcb over time. Asus advertises that this line of graphics cards use a brace to prevent this but my brace doesn't appear to be helping.
Other Thoughts: Im hoping that if any issues arise in the future it would be covered under warranty.
