Most Favorable Review

Simply awesome fan!

Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM chromax.black.swap, Premium Quiet Fan, 4-Pin (120mm, Black)
Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM chromax.black.swap, Premium Quiet Fan, 4-Pin (120mm, Black)

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.

Most Critical Review

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...

Super card for 1080p!

Pros: - fans really keeps things cool (almost always less than 70C regardless of the game I'm playing)

Cons: - none

Overall Review: Great option if you're mostly at 1080p gaming and decent at 1440p!

Great value!

COUGAR Vortex PWM 120mm (CF-V12HP) Cooling Fan with Hydro-Dynamic Bearing and Pulse Width Modulation (Orange Version)
COUGAR Vortex PWM 120mm (CF-V12HP) Cooling Fan with Hydro-Dynamic Bearing and Pulse Width Modulation (Orange Version)

Pros: - great combination of airflow and static pressure at a relatively modest top speed of 1500 rpm - air guide tabs on the frame focuses airflow

Cons: - getting harder to find (especially the black version)

Overall Review: Well worth the money!

Very nice!

Cooler Master MasterFan MF140 Halo [Addressable Gen 2 RGB] - Duo-Ring 2nd Gen. ARGB Lighting 140mm PWM Fan with 24 Independently-Controlled LEDS, Absorbing Rubber Pads, PWM Static Pressure
Cooler Master MasterFan MF140 Halo [Addressable Gen 2 RGB] - Duo-Ring 2nd Gen. ARGB Lighting 140mm PWM Fan with 24 Independently-Controlled LEDS, Absorbing Rubber Pads, PWM Static Pressure

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.

Quality product and fast shipping!

- well-packaged (cardboard only except for the small plastic bag containing the screws) - a good combination of airflow and static pressure at speeds below 2000 rpm
