This review is from: Rosewill RFA120L-R 120mm 4 Red LEDs LED Case Fan
Pros: Moves a lot of air. I'm no super-uber case builder, but I knew with the summer months approaching, I would need to have better airflow from front to back with my semi-enclosed desk compartment where the PC is. I hooked up a side fan to blow right on the CPU, the other in the front of the case. They're not loud at all, can't hear over the CPU fan. There's moving parts, so it's impossible for anything that moves to be silent, but they are pretty darned close.
Cons: The red is fairly bright, but fine with me, it gives a neat glowing effect to my desk compartment. Didn't come with but 4 standard screws, so it's a good thing my case came with extra long screws.
Other Thoughts: I ordered three of these guys, using one to replace the stock case fan. They are very nice.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: JATON GeForce FX 5200 DirectX 9 Video-228PCI-Twin 128MB 64-Bit DDR PCI Video Card
Pros: The card worked very well right out of the box. Very little installation needed, just drivers and I was up and running my dual-monitor. I don't play games or use any high graphics, just the typical DVD, internet and school stuff. Worked nice....but.....
Cons: Now, 14 months later, the fan has gone to poop. It makes this really annoying rattling/vibrating sound, and it's drivin me crazy. I'm using my laptop only right now because I'm awaiting my new video card I bought yesterday. Lasted for a long time. I tried tinkering with the screws, seeing if anything was loose, but couldn't locate anything. Not a bad buy for $75.
Other Thoughts: Might as well pay the additional money and get the Dual DVI-I cards now since they can send both signals. Wouldn't want the fan thing to happen to you either, so maybe just opt for soemthing else? Your call. Clarity was fine, but like I said, I didn't do any games or high-graphic stuff. Might work well for the everyday-browser person just checking the mail or doing homework.READ FULL REVIEW
