This review is from: Noctua NH-U14S 140mm SSO2-Bearing (Self-stabilising oil-presure bearing) CPU Cooler
Pros: The easiest HSF setup I've worked with, and I've handled alot through the years. This was so painless. Even adding the other 140mm fan (that isn't included btw) was simple once I figured out which direction to attach the support. Did I mention it runs COOL. Running a 5820k @ stock and the highest I've seen a since core get was 57* C in Metro LL benchmark full maxed 1080 run
Witcher 3 & Fallout 4 get it up to the 40*s. Prime 95 test 2 hr run and temps were nice and cool, not sure as I didn't record them but I remember being satisfied with the cooler and that was with only one fan. Fits well/looks great on the X99 Sabertooth and clears the dimms for all slots to be occupied, I'd stick with lo-pro ram sticks but something like Ripjaws should fit anways, you would only have to worry about the two closest dimm slots (to the cpu) anyways so if you're only going to take up 6 of the 8 slots you're golden regardless. But I digress, bravo Noctua, I could probably build another machine on just what I've spent on noctua fans but it's worth it in my eyes, good performance and I don't hear any of the 9 fans in this specific build.
Cons: Not really a con but didn't know it only had one fan until I opened it up. Also
Other Thoughts: *****Just a note it only comes with one fan*****READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I love these Sabertooth motherboards, they are the best boards I've worked with. Rock solid stability always. This is my fourth Sabertooth and I'll keep getting them until Asus does something to change that. Love AI Suite as well, amazing program
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Not sure what everyone else is experiencing but I've had no issues with this mobo. I've worked with ASUS's RMA department as well in the past for a pair of HD7770s and the process went smoothly and took only a week so the horror stories of their RMA process may be changing for the better. I took a chance on this even though the ratings are bad on here, the reviews on youtube are positive and I'm glad I did.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT 5.25-Inch Hue RGB LED Color Changing Controller (AA-HUE30-01)
Pros: Haven't tried to mess around with the colors too much from the few they give you at default. It did exactly what I needed though. The 3m tape/adhesive could have been much better as I had to get my own adhesive spray. Also be careful with the connector ends when connecting them.
Cons: Adhesive could have been better
Takes up a 5.25 tray if that matters to you
(so few in today's age/you may not even have a 5.25 slot depending on the case)
Other Thoughts: Awesome product NZXT, getting the HUE PLUS for my new build so i don't have to use one of my 3 5.25 bays.READ FULL REVIEW
