This review is from: GELID Solutions Slim 12 UV BLUE 120mm Case Fan
Pros: Normally I don't review fans but I see some reviews I want to clear up. First, this fan doesn't come with LEDs, so its not supposed to light up... there is a model that comes with them; it costs a little more. The fins are supposed to be UV reactive I guess, but the fan doesn't have any light source itself. Beyond that, I am quite impressed with how quiet this fan is. I was worried that a slimmer fan might have more motor whine to it, but it is quite quiet. The airflow is great too, working as well as a regular sized fan (I mean it's no scythe gentle typhoon, but it moves as much air or more than a stock case fan). There aren't very many options on the market for a slimmer fan, but thankfully this one is working well.
Cons: Yes I agree it is a bad design that the screw holes are designed to only mount this fan as an exhaust. If you need a slim fan as an intake, you can still use this one by hitting up your local hardware store. Just get some screws and bolts and do a bolt-through mount. Individual misc. pieces from the store are usually 8 - 10 cents a piece. Your standard computer screw is #6 32-threading if you want to stick with the standard (or if you are mounting this to a radiator like me).
Other Thoughts: I was putting a cooler master H60 in a Lian Li PC-Q08. I needed a slimmer fan for the radiator. This works perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have been running these sticks at 2133 for over a month with no errors. I have used G-skill products before and have always had good results. I once even had to deal with their customer service (not for this product in particular) and it wasn't a nightmare.
Cons: Well as usually they didn't default to 2133. It was either 1333 or 1600. But a quick change from "auto" to 2133 solved that in my BIOS. And the best part was I didn't have to tweak the voltage. I've had to do that in the past.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I got this for my GF's nook and she loves it. The case is nice and she likes that she can turn the nook sideways. For $20ish you get a lot of extras.
Cons: The screen protector was useless. This could easily be user error (I am not a patient man) but I couldn't keep bubbles out from under the screen and she couldn't get it to work either. So, we both tried and failed. I don't know if that is our fault or the product's. But the rest of the stuff is great and the price on this bundle is too.READ FULL REVIEW
