Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 - Sleeve Bearing 200mm Silent Fan for Computer Cases (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Nah, it's not that quiet. 12/09/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 - Sleeve Bearing 200mm Silent Fan for Computer Cases (Black)

Pros: Moves a lot of air. Relatively quiet, with potential to be silent.

Cons: When it's silent, it doesn't move much air at all. Any higher speed than lowest, and it starts making ticking noise.

Other Thoughts: Too bad there really aren't much info on quiet 200mm fans at all, and everyone's opinions on quietness is subjective. Based on my sample, at least, if you want a really quiet PC, this isn't the way to go.

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very quiet at low loads (no noise until ~150W); reliable function; 5 year warranty; high efficiency; reasonably priced; fully modular; good looking for a PSU

Cons: Fan doesn't kick in often, but it's definitely noticeable when it does; modular cables too long and too stiff for optimal ITX use (although, what is? Maybe Silverstone Strider with short cable kit?)

Other Thoughts: Fan seems to kick in at around 150-200W after some use in a small ITX box. My computer's peak load is at ~150W (i5 3450, 750 Ti, 16GB memory, 256GB SSD+1TB 2.5" HDD, B75 chipset), so that means it only kicks in during an intense gaming session. Also, for that guy who says he can't get a replacement due to warranty running out--this thing came out last year. Warranty is 5 years. I don't think you've got this thing for five years.

Also, make sure this thing gets good ventilation. Running it passively most of the times means it's going to be cooking itself with higher-than-optimal temperature compared to your normal PSUs due to, you know, fan not running. Putting fan vents pointing to the top might not be a bad idea.

ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast when it works. Reliable when linked with up to 8 devices.

Cons: More than 8 devices results in having to do regular reboots, and even then, it's not certain that it works. Runs a little hot.

Other Thoughts: Maybe they should have put in a bit more ventilation holes for better reliability, combined with a nice beefy heatsink. Install the custom firmware if you want to expand its capability--but if it has a hard enough time handling multiple devices at the same time, would you really want to give it even more workload?
