Most Favorable Review

Haha yeah

be quiet! SILENTWINGS 3 PWM 140mm
be quiet! SILENTWINGS 3 PWM 140mm

Pros: -Don't look dumb like Noctua fans -Got that PWM connector -Very quiet up to 60% RPM speed

Cons: -Honestly nothing

Overall Review: Some reviewers said this fan is 100% quiet at full speed. These fans are great but that's an exaggeration unless the reviewer meant they couldn't hear the fan over the sound of the construction workers outside.

Most Critical Review

Meh

GIGABYTE GA-AB350N-Gaming WIFI (rev. 1.0) AM4 AMD B350 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-AB350N-Gaming WIFI (rev. 1.0) AM4 AMD B350 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: -Has stupid RGB underglow -8 USB ports (oh yeah baby) -Has WiFi (hahaAAAA YEAH BOII) -Looks pretty decent -Good price

Cons: -Tiny VRM heatsink, don't expect 3.9GHz+ OC's on Ryzen 7 CPU's to last under stress without thermal shutdown -Only 2 PWM fan headers -Placement of motherboard and CPU power is awful

Overall Review: Biggest gripe is the placement of the headers. It's actually a big deal if you're using a traditional styled case like a Fractal Design Define. There's an increased chance of damaging motherboard and other components if you ever need to switch power supply or redo cable management. Hard to explain with words.

It's a case

Fractal Design Define Mini C TG Black Tempered Glass Window Silent Compact Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: -Doesn't look like it's about to lift-off and break a hole in your ceiling -Feels really sturdy -Metal and plastic parts have a nice texture -Glass panel has this nice black outline -Included fans are pretty decent -Cable management is easy -Front and bottom dust filters are easy to remove without moving the whole case

Cons: -Thumbscrews for glass panels can be a little annoying -Magnetic dust filter is flimsy and the adhesive holding the magnets slowly peel off over time -Magnetic dust filter doesn't fit properly when installing 140mm fans on top -Blue power LED

Overall Review: There aren't any proper mounts for pump+reservoir combo units. Definitely get a separate pump and reservoir with this case.

It's RAM. It works.

CORSAIR Vengeance RGB DRAM 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4-24000) C15 - Intel 100/200 Series Desktop Memory
CORSAIR Vengeance RGB DRAM 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4-24000) C15 - Intel 100/200 Series Desktop Memory

Pros: -Has lights with rainbow shift preset so it'll look stupid in your YouTube RGB build log video -XMP profile for 3200MHz is stable -It works

Cons: -RAM in the last year has been overpriced -Ugly software

Overall Review: RAM is RAM. Only thing that matters is how reliable it is so you don't have to worry about sending it in for RMA. Just doing my part because my set of sticks worked perfectly for last 6+ months.

be quiet! SILENTWINGS 3 PWM 120mm
be quiet! SILENTWINGS 3 PWM 120mm

Pros: -Relatively quiet -Swappable mounts for case/radiator mounting -Well constructed -Attractive

Cons: -Not any quieter than SilentWings 2, new motor design seems pointless -These things get loud at 1450 RPM

Overall Review: These things are dead silent up to about 600 RPM. Most reviewers are stupid, they are in a room with AC cranked up then turn these fans on full tilt and say "These things are inaudible". No they're not, at least not at 100%. If you're going for 100% silent, 50% on these things is what you're looking at. They get really loud at 100% which is disappointing compared to the 140mm version. Still have to give 4 stars for how well constructed these are, arguably surpassing Noctua.

Pros: -Possibly the best 4K monitor for the price -Sharp image -Minimal design -Height, tilt, and pivot adjustmants -28" is a great size -Decent viewing angles (for TN) -Uniform display

Cons: -Heavy-ish -Certain color modes lock out options that don't make sense -Pain in the *** to connect/disconnect DisplayPort cable (even with small hands)
