BitFenix BFF-WPRO-20025W-RP 200mm White LED Spectre PRO WHITE 200MM Case Fan
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: moves a decent amount of air and is quiet in vertical position if you undervolt it.

Cons: Noisy if you mount it horizontal (like the top of a case). Its a bearing noise and after taking one of the two I bought apart, its simply not designed to work or last if you mount it horizontally.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet at common load levels. Power meter is a neat gadget

Cons: Crashes, isn't stable.

I bought one and put it in a 100% stable for years system. Random crashes started and the system rarely ran for more than a hour. RMA'd it and Newegg provided good service.

Second one did same thing, so I swaped into system an low and behold it was actually good there. I assumed some sort of compatibility issue with one type of motherboard.

Couple of months later I've got a brand new ASUS X99 deluxe and nothing but random crashes. Swap a different powersupply in and its 100% good.

So 2 out of 3 motherboards I have on hand won't work with a 700w astro. I'd skip it if I were you.

Other Thoughts: Tried contacting them and the first question was "what country are you?" lol

BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 200mm Case Fan
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Not really a FDB 03/29/2014

This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 200mm Case Fan

Pros: They look good and are reasonably quiet at 5v when operated vertically.

Cons: They are noisy if you mount them horizontally. I opened one up, and found there to be no seal for the fluid. There wasn't enough fuild to lubricate the thrust washer on one end of the shaft and that was causing noise.

Even worse, the other end of the shaft had an rubber o-ring on it instead of a thrust washer. I doubt that rubber will last very long when being spun against the grooves in the bearing.

Other Thoughts: This shouldn't be called a FDB, it is designed horribly.
