CRYORIG QF120 Silent 120mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Totally sIlent in normal operating range 03/14/2017

This review is from: CRYORIG QF120 Silent 120mm PWM Fan

Pros: Totally silent up to ~80% power, then becomes a steady audible hum that still isn't bad.
6 year warranty.
Nice length sleeved cables.
Matches by black\white scheme.
Were ~$10 each on sale.

Cons: Did not see that 140mm versions were on the way. Would have waited another couple weeks and got those. Am disappointed now.
using the included rubber "screws" they do not fit snuggly/are held in a loose position, fans vibrate against the case because they are not tightly secured.

Other Thoughts: Have three of these as front intakes and two of the QF120 Performance on my radiator. All five are completely silent the majority of the time.

are very nice fans for noise/airflow ratio but are made out of very "brittle" plastic. using metal screw/bolt combination it is very easy to break off corners.

5 out of 5 eggs Great card for high fps 1080p or 60fps 1440p 03/03/2017

This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, 08G-P4-6173-KR, 8GB GDDR5, LED, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC)

Pros: Can handle all settings and effects maxed on any game I try @ 1080p and get over 100fps.
Can handle decent settings @ 1440p and still get over 60fps.
Runs very cool; with +150 core \ +250 memory it hangs around 55°C while gaming, high 30s while idling.
Is very quiet; even with the fan curve topping at 70% i don't hear them.
A small card for the horsepower; 1.5" shorter than my last and maybe .5lb lighter.
White LED & logo.
Only uses a single 8pin cable.

Cons: Not quite the improvement I was hoping for over the 8GB 290X it replaced, but that was a jackpot card.
Advertisement for this particular card shows the ACX 3.0 cooling system with RGB LEDs. This card only has some dim white logo illumination and a couple odd shaped LED bars exposed on the rear.

Other Thoughts: I am happy with the card but if I had it to do over I would hold off for a bit and get a 1080 after the Ti releases and the prices drop.

CRYORIG QF120 Performance 120mm PWM Fan

5 out of 5 eggs QF120 series Performance version from Cryorig 02/08/2017

This review is from: CRYORIG QF120 Performance 120mm PWM Fan

Pros: Totally silent at up to ~70% power, which seems to be ~1000rpms.
Moves a lot of air.
Good pricing compared to other high-quality brands.
Black/White matches my themed setup.

Cons: Soft plastic exterior; can easily break the corners by screwing in too tight.
Didn't see 140mm versions were available.

Other Thoughts: Replaced the Thermaltake fans on a Water 3.0 Extreme cooler with these. Are absolutely silent while still keeping my CPU at lower temps than the stock Thermaltakes did. Much quieter and better quality than the stock fans were.

I keep my fan curve topping out at ~68% for 60°C. Have never passed 50°C while gaming/archiving with a 4790K @ 4.6GHz.
