This review is from: Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 140mm Case Fan
Pros: Really moves static air... seems more like 100cfm.
Cons: Loud. Much more loud than my Corsair 120mm and 140mm SP fans.
Other Thoughts: Corsair- way to go...
Phantek- back to te drawing board...
This review is from: EVERCOOL HPL-815EP Ever Lubricate CPU Cooler
Pros: Simple installation, cruise right through an even "Easier" setup. This cooler works great, setting idle temps on my Phenom II X3 740 at 34c (it's early summer here - room temp. is 79f) and in Prime95 under load it's at 61c ave. on all four cores... yes, four... this one is unlocked in my 98TD Evo board. Had this on my mini-itx system and changed that out to a Zalman CNPS2X which works just cool.
Cons: the fan is not my favorite so I swapped it out for a Yate Loon D12SM-12C (tricky fit) which moves about 50cfm and it's silent. All in all, I'd rate this installation on a difficulty scale of 0 (Zero) out of 5... Simple, quick and left nice and tidy. The only real Con is the way a few reviews are left about the design of this cooler... I feel that the more you actually read about products, the more you actually know... what? Come on kids, reading is learning.
Other Thoughts: Low Profile and Small Form Factor only means "You Need To Do Some Research" before you go off on a Buying Spree. These companies design and fabricate these components with the plan to fit or work with a multitude of system components... motherboard design/layout is the Main factor here and blaming someone else for one's lack of Computer Component Knowledge and basic Common Sense seems to be the Standard shown here with the Newegg "Overall Tech. Knowledge Rating System". If the responsibility lies on everyone else's shoulders, then someone else needs to learn to take the initiative...
Something else, you who rate yourselves at such High Tech. Knowledge... a Small Form Factor build doesn't mean that you have to install a Low Profile cpu cooler. Come on kids- Research... the 'net is at your fingertips and you want to whine and cry about having to disassemble and store parts for your system in order to install a cpu cooler you have YET to learn about? Really? Rated at "High Tech. Level" but needs "clips" to mount a cooler... "heatsink is not in the correct orientation"... Really? These coolers are fab'd around as many system boards as possible for their design- Do "Your" research, too.
Pros: Excellent cooling, runs at spec. speeds... have yet to o'clock- soon, maybe...?
Cons: Cons... what...???
Other Thoughts: Mushkin, they are my other "First Choice" alongside G.Skill... the Best when it comes to Quality... Quality Products, Quality Control (consistent distribution) and Quality Communication all around.
Mushkin, thank you for years of reliability and Customer Service/Support.
