Simply awesome fan!
Pros: - great for radiators and air coolers! - comes with a lot of accessories - excellent build quality
Cons: - a little pricey, but you do get what you pay for...
Overall Review: This fan is in a class all it's own. The only competition this fan has is from the new Phanteks T30. Still, you can't go wrong with the NF-A12x25.
Great design but gave me some issues
Pros: - nice design, fits well in my hand
Cons: - kept my Dell Optiplex 9020 from booting
Overall Review: For more modern systems this appears to be an OK mouse. However it took me a couple of weeks to figure out that having this mouse connected to my Dell Optiplex 9020 kept me from doing a normal boot. The computer had Windows 10 and all the updates. I always had to disconnect the power cord for about a minute before I could start my rig up. After I replaced the mouse I didn't have any issues at all on startup. Just weird...
Pros: - Well-made and sturdy - nice ARGB effects - decent airflow - connecting clips included for ARGB plugs
Cons: - Not so much a "con" as an observation. With the supplied mounting screws, I found myself screwing "through the frame" at least twice on installation. This was on a Cooler Master case (MB311L). I'm not sure if the mounting slots were cut a little wide, the screw heads were a little narrow, or both. Either screws with a wider head or washers would be a fix.
Overall Review: Great case fans with decent airflow and ARGB effects. Worth the money!
Nice addition for dust control
Pros: - perfect fit for the front - mitigates "blowback" from airflow-type case fans
Cons: - slight increase in noise level and CPU temp at load
Overall Review: This is nice if you want to add a higher level of dust control for your rig. I have a 240mm rad installed in the front and I noticed a 1-2 degree C increase in CPU temp when running Cinebench for 15 minutes. I'm not sure if there would be any noticeable change if using a top mounted rad or an air cooler. The additional resistance of mesh directly in front of the fans also increased the noise level under load but it's not enough for me to make a difference. Again this increase might have been less if I had fans and no radiator in front of the mesh. Overall a great item - I would like to see these made for the rest of the Eclipse line.
