COUGAR CF-V14H Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 14CM Silent Cooling Fan

Pros: Good airflow, quiet. Screws, rubber mounts, and wire adapter included.

Cons: None thus far.

Overall Review: These fans are in a computer i use in my living room. Using older fans it was audible with conversation in the room. Now its dead silence at all times.

Perfect

Pros: I use this for TS in Arma 3, and it doesn't pick up any background noise. Clear, no distortion, break away clip, and small size. Detachable from cord, see cons.

Cons: Shortish cord, easily fixed by getting a longer cord since it detaches.

Awesome

Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow, Supporting up to Six 120mm Fans and USB 3.0

Pros: Tons of space, with numerous layouts available for the internals. Wire organizing was a breeze with the removable parts, and pre-cut holes. Sturdy, even the plastic cosmetic bits were strong. Front panel was easy to remove to mess with fans. Drive bay covers easy to remove.

Cons: Sale ended.

Overall Review: Finest case i've gotten to build in, after 5 builds.

Pros: Nice price for the space. Stable and fast. No grief with 3 bought over a 3 year span, for 3 separate builds.

Cons: This is the third i've bought and they used to be packaged better. Also they used to be cheaper.

Value

MSI Z77A-G45 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Good features for its price point. Idiot proof bios, and driver install.

Cons: Front fan connector is mid board right next to the 24 pin power, made for a long, crowded, reach to hook up. Varies by case so not a knock for the board.

Overall Review: 4th Msi board used in a build and not one issue. Hard to beat features for the pricing they have with the quality they bring.

Fantastic

GIGABYTE GV-N66TWF2-2GD G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Well cooled, even in my tight case. Paired with i5 2500 and some good ram im maxed in BF3, and playing Arma 3 with mixed high, very high settings. Nice upgrade from Gtx 460.

Cons: Long. Nearly didnt fit with its longer cooler, and length is not listed on newegg.

Overall Review: Upgraded from Gigabyte gtx 460 listed at 9.4". The board itself seems about that length, but the cooler hangs over about another 1-1.5".
