nice & quite
Pros: - super quiet - came with thermal paste!
Cons: - no back plate - fan blocks ram slot
Overall Review: I don't own a Xeon, but I have an i7 980 which came with a stock fan that used a back plate. success! I had originally tried to put the fan on one side to avoid issues with the RAM - but when the system started rebooting I swapped it back to the other side so it pushes air into the rear 120mm fan outtake. so far so good! But I'm now 12gb short on ram. Possible low profile memory could fit under the fan...
Pros: - looks cool - pretty looking login for tweaking settings - ability to turn off bright blinking lights - wall mountable
Cons: - random drop outs of wifi AND hardwired devices, requiring router reboot. was using latest firmware... - had to replace since the instability was driving me crazy
Overall Review: I picked up a TP-LINK Archer C7, no more internet drop-outs!
Same issue as Jake R
Pros: It's a case fan.
Cons: Started making a pulsating sound similar to what Jake R mentions in his review. I tried to reach out to the manufacturer and they asked for pictures... and then said it looked like nothing was wrong. What a joke.
Overall Review: All the positive reviews about these fans had me try them out - but after having this one fail after only a few months. I'll look elsewhere for future fans.
all about zune pass
Pros: small, feels great in hand, has radio, great screen
Cons: dependent on zune software for syncing
Overall Review: returned this after realizing I didn't have the budget to pay for zune pass. Because of this the zune felt useless to me because the zunes best feature is the zune pass. so if you don't get it then I'd recommend looking for another mp3 player.
