Excellent for cpu coolers!
Pros: These are great for cpu coolers! Installed them earlier after doing some cable management on them and the cpu, gpu, ram, and motherboard temps have not crested above 30 Celsius. Motherboard is an Asus M5A97 LE 2.0 and termps are measured right next to the vrm location. Even the Northbridge is cooler by a considerable margin and that is, by far, the hottest location in my case! Very pleased with them and the green light they give off is a brilliant green. Just what I was looking for! The air flow they give off is aastounding and exceeded my expectations.
Cons: They are a bit noisy, but then again, they are a Static Pressure fan. Not something I can knock an egg off as I knew they wouldn't be completely silent. Considering the case I have isn't built for sound dampening, I can't complain.
Overall Review: I you are looking for a great Static Pressure fan, look no further. I plan on getting a few more of these as I build a Nanoxia Deep Silence 5 chassis in the future as the front 2 fans are in a rather enclosed location when the bottom front door is closed. Great for radiators, coolers, and enclosed locations alike.
Solid card for one that could be just getting into pc gaming
Pros: Great card for getting into pc gaming. Can run Tomb Raider (Beautiful game!) on Ultimate settings at 38 fps avg, which isnt bad at all for such a graphically demanding game with a 1gb, 128 bit gpu running it. Runs Payday 2 with zero issues during extended game play and Skyrim runs at the highest settings with zero issues at all. Card stays cool even under further overclocking than what it comes with from the factory. Radiator and heat pipes do a good job of keeping those temps down. highest I have seen this card go is 51 Celsius and it hasn't touched that temp again since.
Cons: While I give this card a good bit of praise, it IS only capable of doing so much. While it may be a good card that will work for someone just getting into pc gaming, after a while, you are going to want to have a better gpu with a higher gb and bit count.
Overall Review: As I stated in the Pros section, this is a great little card for someone just getting into pc gaming, but as I stated in the Cons section, it is only capable of so much.
