EVERCOOL EC9238H12BP 92mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Good performance fan 08/26/2014

This review is from: EVERCOOL EC9238H12BP 92mm Case Fan

Pros: Fan moves a lot of air, especially at full speed. Even at lower speeds, it moves more air than "quiet" fans.

38 mm fan has higher static pressure than 25 mm fans for better cooling on heat sink. Make sure you can fit the wider fan.

Cons: It is quite loud at full speed on my CPU , although it runs 7C lower on my Noctua (when using the high fan setting in my BIOS). It almost sounds like a small vacuum cleaner.

At normal setting, it runs 3C lower. At this setting, the fan is noticable but not annoying.

Other Thoughts: Replaced one of two fans on a Noctua CPU cooler. The Noctua fans are dead quiet but I could tolerate a little noise for more efficient cooling.

Noctua NH-U9DXi4 90mm SSO2 CPU Cooler
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great CPU cooler 07/17/2014

This review is from: Noctua NH-U9DXi4 90mm SSO2 CPU Cooler

Pros: Installs easy on 1366 socket. Just swap out the screws with the set provided for the different thread.

Fans need to be removed to access screws, but fans easily attach afterwards with clips. I though the clips would allow the fans to rattle, but they snap securely in place and the fans rest against plastic pad on the heat sink.

Runs 10 C cooler than stock intel heatsink on Xeon X5650 (Six core, 95W TDP) on Prime95. Stock cooler is similar design except only 3 heat pipes and one fan. Better yet, these fans only need to run at 1000 rpm to achieve these temps compared to 3000 rpm with the stock cooler.

Cools CPU so well at PWM contolled speed and runs to quiet, I did not need to use the included low noise adapters.

All RAM slots can be accessed after fans are installed on Lenovo S20.

Cons: None other than price.

Other Thoughts: With iron egg guarantee, Newegg price matches the online giant. Then include the $15 discount for Google Wallet that was offered (and since expired), and the price was right.

OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast drive, even considering that I am using a SATA 2 interface. Benchmark shows higher IOPS than my laptop using a Mushkin Chronos (not Deluxe) that uses SATA3.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I may consider adding a SATA3 card, but not sure how noticeable the improvement would be in everyday use.
