Pros: dose job as a quiet fan
Cons: the rpm on this fan is rated 1000 rpm but none of my 3 reach it they run at 870, 900, and 920 on full power
Pros: not as loud as I was expecting, but I do have a silent case
Cons: -The sata cable doesn't clip into place on this drive, hopefully mine was just a defect
-immediately recognized in bios but not windows, after some research I ran windows memory diagnostic tool, and then formatted it in windows disk management (at first it wasn't appearing in disk management before I ran the mem diag tool), after that it worked like a charm
-2.72TB , I was expecting only around 2.87TB
Pros: coated the parts of my design s case that didn't have foam, worked wonders audibly quieter
Cons: dust magnet
Pros: easy install, vast improvement to PCB
Cons: Should have been included on a high end card like the 970 to begin with, step up
Overall Review: The E is a solid silver, hard to see in picture
Pros: The cable is sleeved! gone are the days of ugly fan cables
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: after some research I found that this was the second best fan for a rad behind a particular khaki fan, without being khaki
Pros: 100 times better than a ribbon
Cons: Silver, not White like the picture portrays, doesn't light up with the 970 ftw, but dose with the ftw + and ssc versions
Overall Review: evga has been disappointing with the 970 series, do your research and get a card with better build than the old evga 970's
Pros: The noise dampening really works, only sound i hear coming out of it is on the side without it.
Cons: They could have put the noise dampening material on the front panel and the windowed side around the window, bought noise dampening foam to get around this issue.
Overall Review: If you truly value silence go with the non windowed version, but some of us want to show off a $1800 build
Pros: -fully modular, corsair so you know it's good
-The high quality sticker it comes with
Cons: -not impressed by their braided cables so far, found them difficult to work with
-Stiff, difficult to get the to line up right for a "clean" look
-in particular the 24pin for the motherboard is split into 4 different braided sections which i found all but impossible to line up pretty
-No corsair link cable supplied, disappointing considering it's a selling point of the power supply, but i guess there's a reason it isn't included on their new rmx models
Overall Review: haven't tried corsair link yet, if you feel like spending ages getting the cables just right (they do look lovely once you do) i recommend this supply. Painted the ugly yellow and removed the sticker off the top of the supply to match my build, now looks very clean outside of the difficulty with cables (my new motherboard has the connections at a 90 degree angle so should make manipulating the cables into them significantly easier.) As far as i can tell the only differences between the rm and rmx models were the rmx doesn't have the corsair link cable, fixed an issue where the power supply would shut off without turning fan on to cool it (while operating outside manufacturers specs) and a new color scheme, so if you don't mind the color scheme and you're sticking to manufacturers specs the rm model is probably a better choice. Been powering a fx 6300, 3 drives, and a 970 oc for about a week now with no issues.
Pros: super fast, fx 6300 seemed to bottleneck a little, stayed cool and silent during gaming
Cons: artifacts appeared across the screen and then promptly burnt out after a single month of use. When fan was turned on to 100% manually it sounded like the gates of hell had been opened.
Overall Review: In the process of replacing
