Most Favorable Review

Honestly surprised!

Cooler Master GeminII M5 LED - Low Profile CPU Cooler with 5 Direct Contact Heatpipes Red LED PWM Fan
Cooler Master GeminII M5 LED - Low Profile CPU Cooler with 5 Direct Contact Heatpipes Red LED PWM Fan

Pros: Pros: -Low profile for smaller cases or compact builds -Bright LEDs -Looks cool in a build -Performed better than I expected

Cons: Cons: -Weird installation. It has actual hex nuts rather than screws or push pins. Not saying that's bad per se, just a little different than what I'm used to seeing.

Overall Review: I purchased this for a clients build and was honestly surprised with the results! It looks amazing and cools even better. Temps were significantly lower than i was expecting for a low profile cooler.

Most Critical Review

Terrible! Don't waste your money (DOA)

NEMIX RAM EXTREME 16GB (2 X 8GB) DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 Desktop Memory
NEMIX RAM EXTREME 16GB (2 X 8GB) DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 Desktop Memory

Pros: Pros: -None (DOA)

Cons: Cons: -DOA

Overall Review: I thought I'd get this because it was cheap. Lesson learned. RAM was DOA. Wasn't even worth the time, hassle, or shipping cost to return it

Haven't actually used these in a build yet but have tested. BeQuiet! is always a safe bet in my opinion.

be quiet! Pure Wings 2 120mm

Pros: Pros: -Simple fan nothing extravagant -very quiet (duh!)

Cons: Cons: -None at this time

Overall Review: Yeah.. Buy them. 'Nough said. BeQuiet! is a trusted brand by many for a reason. Worth every penny even if I haven't installed them on anything yet because I know they'll work and last.

Decent fans. Worth a try if you have the cash for them

COUGAR 12CM CFD Red LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1200RPM, 64.4CFM, 16.6dBA
COUGAR 12CM CFD Red LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1200RPM, 64.4CFM, 16.6dBA

Pros: Pros: -Fairly quiet (Maybe not as much as BeQuiet! but enough to earn the label "silent") -Bright LEDs -3 pin to molex adapters included -Sleeved cables

Cons: Cons: -Lights are a bit "off" red but close enough i guess -chassis and blades are very clearly orange (Though i guess that's pretty clear in the pictures too)

Overall Review: Not a bad fan but certainly nothing extraordinary. Would buy again if i had a specific need

Fractal kills it! As always

Fractal Design Meshify C Black ATX High-Airflow Compact Dark Tint Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case
Fractal Design Meshify C Black ATX High-Airflow Compact Dark Tint Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Pros: -Compact design but doesn't sacrifice too much function (Larger graphics cards may not fit) -Tinted glass is amazing IMO -Massive front airflow with lots of options for fan configuration with 120 or 140 mm fans -All the screws and other hardware you'll need are included -As per usually with fractal design, cable management is a dream

Cons: Cons: -Thumb screws for the glass are a bit slim. Can be difficult to grab them w/o getting smudges on your glass -Compact design may limit larger graphics cards Other than that, there isn't much more to say. I'm in love with this case... Although the S2 is catching my eye

Overall Review: Highly recommend! I feel like fractal did everything right with this case. Obviously better airflow over the Define C which i believe was the point anyway. Very sleek build. Very easy to build in. Easy 5 eggs!
