Cons: None So Far
Overall Review: I bought 2 of these to put in my new Gigabyte Sniper 5. I had no problems at all, they were detected properly and the speed was also correct at 9-9-9-24 Windows 7 Home Premium shows the full 32Gb, and boots up super fast with my new SSD. I have not yet run a deep memory test on them, but when I do, I expect that everything is going to be fine. I'm totally satisfied so far. If they withstand the test of time, I'll be one happy camper.
Everything I need
Pros: This fan came with an adapter plug for every application.
Cons: It makes a bit more noise than the fan that it replaced, not sure if it is the pitch of the blades or maybe it just spins at a higher RPM. No big deal, just something I noticed.
Overall Review: Overall a nice fan. I got the purple colored LED's, not too bright, just right. It's doing the job as I expected it would.
Big And Well Built
Pros: Everything so Far
Cons: See Other Thoughts
Overall Review: This case is huge, and a little heavy, but it seems to be very well built, and has a ton of room inside. In my opinion, it doesn't have stunning good looks, but isn't ugly either. If you have a need or desire for fans, this is the case for you. It comes with 8 installed, and room for more if you feel the need. Despite the number of fans, it runs fairly quietly. If I had to point out some things I wasn't wild about, there were a few. a) the fan header on the inside bottom of the case is positioned partially under the lower HDD fan, and it is impossible to plug in the molex to power it without removing the fan. This could have been totally prevented by rotating the header 180 degrees, which is what I did while I had the fan off. b) the upper 5.25 inch drive bay comes without a cover. I would have rather had them all with covers, and removed the ones that I wanted to use, rather than Rosewill making this decision for me. c) The USB outlets are on the top of the case, along with the headphone and microphone jacks. I would have rather had them positioned on the side somewhere. d) there is a built in HDD docking station on the top, this is a nice touch, but when I eject it, it doesn't stop spinning. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it is a little unsettling to remove the disk and feel the platters still spinning full speed inside. I'm using all of my motherboards SATA sockets for internal devices anyhow, so I'll just not use this feature in the future. It did come in handy when setting up though. e) the only other problem I encountered was that this case is so big, that not all of my SATA power supply cables were long enough to route properly, so I had to buy a couple of extensions. Also the 24 pin power supply was just BARELY long enough to route behind the motherboard to it's socket while the CPU lead came with an extension included (which I needed). All in all, I think this is a fine case, and it was a pleasure to fill it up. Plenty of room inside for whatever you might want to put in it. Thanks Rosewill & Newegg
