Easily the best fans out there
Pros: I have 6 of the Noctua re-deux edition ( gray in color ) in my case and 2 of the industrial spec. black Noctua fans . At 80% with the side off the case I can barely hear them from 1 1/2 -2 feet . Understand that the black fans on my heat since push 160 cfm per fan (compared to a good quiet average 140mm fan that will only push 40-50 cfm of air) . Ultra quite . So how well do they cool ? along with almost silence I am running my 4790k @ 4.5ghz with max burn in temp on all cores not to exceed 52-54 degrees C. Idles at 27-29 degrees C , Normal operation ( photoshop ect ) 40-45 degrees C . Max overclock I am able to sustain is 4.8 ghz @ 1.32 volts , at this speed after 1 hour of burn in the temps never exceeded 61 degrees on any of the cores. I dont need to overclock this processor so I run it at stock 4.0/4.4 ghz at (undervolted) 1.151Volts . Nice to know I have the headroom in the cooling department , thanks to the fans . I don't think there is a all in 1 water cooling system that can touch a well thought out air cooling system with Noctua fans. Hopefully Newegg will start carrying the re-deux and professional lines of Noctua fans soon. Buy a Noctua fan once and that will be the only fan you will but again .
Overall Review: Black and gray fans available from Noctua ,
Pros: Tiny and fast . Does not need big ugly antennas , its about 1/3 the length of your little finger . I am getting the same speed as ethernet . 50-57 mbps on comcast speed test . Cant speak to the range because I am using it for my desktop to keep from running cables . I would buy again.
Cons: none - especially at the price.
Overall Review: got here from Hong Kong in 5 days !
