Pros: Great cooling, and it's quiet.
Cons: If you're getting this for the blue lights, look elsewhere. The lights are practically non-existent. My old fan that I replaced had a better glow than this, and that was just one fan.
I have 2 of these for a push-pull effect and both of them combined don't even give much of a blue glow.
As of right now the only reason i'm still using them is because the cooling is fantastic (which is what you want) and the sound is pretty quiet with the right settings, but since I'd like to also have pretty lights I was kind of disappointed by this.
Other Thoughts: Great for cooling, bad for lighting effects.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Enermax ETS-T40-BK Black 120mm Twister CPU Cooler with TB Apollish Blue LED PWM Fan
Pros: Bought this slightly over a year ago, and it's still going strong. It has copper heatsinks which I've heard was the best choice (this was my first custom computer). I don't overclock anything, but I still do some pretty hardware intensive things and this fan has kept everything between 28c~35c and combined with my case everything is easily dust free after all this time (with easy removable filters on the case for simple light dusting every 2 months).
I will definitely buy this again when the time comes.
Cons: It's a pretty big fan. I'm using it with a Blackhawk Mid ATX gaming tower and it was a pretty tight fit with the side fan (120mm). It covers the first PCI slot on my MB (Asus pz877-v lk) so I had to just live without that slot. I needed an ethernet card since my MB ethernet port didn't work and it was a VERY tight squeeze between my fan and graphics card (EVGA gtx 760 4gb superclocked edition w/ ACX cooler).
Try a wider case or a full sized case if you plan on getting this fan. The side panel on my case is now bent outwards due to the CPU fan sticking out so far.
Other Thoughts: The thermal paste that was included with the fan still holds perfectly even after a year of heavy tasks. No need to buy additional paste unless you prefer it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The picture is simply perfect, and the screen size is exactly what i was looking for. A great upgrade from my previous 21.5" which seemed too "widescreened".
I was actually considering a 27", but that probably would've had the wide dilemma as well...
Cons: Not really cons, but:
1: Had an issue setting it up at first, but i think that was due to me not paying attention to where i was plugging in the cords... works great now though.
2: Don't have your hand too close while using mouse/KB, an accidental bump can send the screen to the top position of its mount. It has a spring like feature that makes the monitor adjust it's height and it can easily be "sprung" right back to being "too high" while sitting in front of it. As long as you don't bump it on the bottom of the screen part of the monitor, it'll stay in place with no trouble.
Other Thoughts: Apart from the "spring-like" feature, this monitor is definitely worth getting.READ FULL REVIEW
