Amazing Quality & Features - 100% Worth Every Penny - A++
Pros: - Quiet Edition with enough airflow - 4th Pin for Speed Control - Extended Cable for Easy Plug and Play - Rubber Anti-Vibration Pads come in 6 different colors! - Coated with IP67 (Will attract less Dust and require very little cleaning) - If ordered from Noctua, they offer free shipping!!
Cons: - Extension Cable could be longer.
Overall Review: - Noctua listened to their customers and offered colored rubber pads, so many too pick from. - I purchased three of these fans to be used in my Hard-drive bay so that they can cool my five Hard-drives. - I ran into one issue where one of the cables wasn't long enough to reach a 4 Pin slot so I will be purchasing a 4 Pin extension. In the meantime, I plugged it into a 3 Slot which makes it run at 100% and for my case worked just as good. - Overall, I am super satisfied with the product and would strongly recommend! - The additional price vs any other brand fan is worth it because of the higher quality.
The short cable makes me really unhappy...
Pros: Comes pre-installed with thermal paste
Cons: Short Fan Cable... No Instructions Manual
Overall Review: Was confused at first what way to correctly mount it, I have many other coolers and they all provided an instruction manual indicating which way goes what. Also... none of them ever have had such a short fan cable and using an adapter just doesn't work. Thanks for not thinking about the customer LOGISYS, how much did you save, $1-2? All I needed was 1-2 more CM.
You get what you pay for
Pros: - Support for 27" Monitors - Works with 200x100 VESA mounts - Allows for rotation and different angles
Cons: - Box was damaged, item looked like it was returned due to scratches and wear/tear.
Overall Review: I Always wanted a Monitor Desk Mount however it was just too expensive considering I thought I needed Adapters as-well. Having a $95 dollar discount was what ultimately led me to buy this mount. I was disappointed to receive a damaged box but most disappointed with the fact that the unit that had scratches and previous wear/tear. The screws and everything else were sealed in the bag which is weird because its obvious this mount was used before. With all of that being said, I am still happy with the purchase because of the price and the most important thing is that two of my 27" monitors are currently being held without issue. As far as the brand goes, I am impressed with Rosewill for the price, quality and selection of items. If the unit I got was in perfect condition, I would rate it a 8/10.
Pros: - only 26 cm total card length! - fans capable of up to 3800RPM! - overclocked core up to 2080MHZ - overclocked memory up to 6020MHZ - ICX technology featuring a lot of sensors - 3 year warranty, up-gradable to 10 years
Cons: - 7+2 power phase - total product cost - no black alternative cooler - unable to reach core clock of at-least 2100MHZ - software only available by CD or virtual download EVGA Precision X software version 6.1.6: - certain features are grayed out or cause software crashing - sometimes takes longer to turn on boot and launch - settings interface is seriously lacking professional design - feels unfinished and sluggish as if EVGA didn't care - MSI's Afterburner puts this software to shame
Overall Review: The biggest disappointment so far as been the Precision X software. I do not understand how I've heard so many great things about it when at best, its clunky, bugged and annoying to use. It has an unprofessional interface and clearly looks and feels unfinished. Anyone that has been using MSI Afterburner will notice right away that Afterburner's interface, stability and performance is superior. I hope you don't get me wrong, the features that are offered in Precision X look promising however this program should still be in BETA and the settings window completely redesigned with confirmation of all working features and buttons. I do applaud EVGA for offering a KBOOST feature which allows you to push your GPU to the limit and see how far it can go. It would be cool if instead of sending me a fancy poster which was bent, two stickers and a EVGA sticker badge (all of which i will never use) that I received a USB thumbstick which featured all the software found on the CDROM. I realize many might disagree with me but to those aware of where the future is headed, CD's are a thing of the past and as such, since its super cheap to provide a USB (especially if you forget about a poster/stickers), then that should be the standard. While I did go online and download what I needed, I like having the software on-hand (even if its not the latest version). Ultimately, I got this card because I wanted it to be around 26CM in length which would allow me to keep my case and have room for an additional hard drive. If it were a matter of performance and I had more space, I would have opted for the FTW3 card which has 10+2 powerphases and would offer a better overclock.
Offered Free Shipping and it was quick.
Noctua makes amazing products. They offered Free Shipping and it arrived quickly (within the same week). I strongly recommend this company, their products and buying products from them rather then another vendor. I ended up buying the last stock and was curious to see how long it took them to restock. I checked back 4 days later and found they had new stock. Looking forward to my next purchase with NCS in the future when I need more Fans.
Worth Every Penny
Purchased to replace two stock 140 Corsair fans that came with H115i. After about 16 months, the default fans started to get obnoxiously loud while no-longer capable of cooling my i7 5930k fast enough which resulted in my core temps getting to 100C at around 90% load while running at 2500RPM! Now, after booting up my PC with these Noctua NF-A14 fans, the core temps at idle were 45C, running at 540 RPM! Upon 90% load, the temps were steady at 50C and at 90% load were 60-70C while only running at 1680RPM which allows me to keep it quiet and properly cool the 5930k. When I bump up the fan speed to 2000RPM, my temps at 90% load are 60C. Do not make the same mistake that I made. Purchase these If you are considering and aren't sure if they are worth the money. I am absolutely stunned by how amazing these fans are and regret not purchasing them right away despite reading several positive reviews.
