This review is from: SILVERSTONE FHP-141 140mm (120mm mounting holes) Case Fan
Pros: 2 settings both move air. Power is great and noise is tolerable.
Moves air with good pressure.
Durable with good fit and finish.
Includes black sleeved cable with pwm splitter for radiators or multiple fans.
Version 2 comes with 140mm adapters, showed up when I thought I was just getting original no extra cost.
Cons: 38mm wide limits placement in smaller spaces and cases but you know that going in and that is part of why the fan works so well.
Other Thoughts: Great for case, air and liquid cooling. Just make sure it will fir your radiator. I have not tried the new 140mm mounting on a 140 or 280 yet. Very reasonable priced for performance. Newegg still lists the 1st version without the 140mm adapter feet but I have order them and been pleasantly surprised. It would be nice they updated the listing so you know which one is coming. I prefer V2 with the 140mm feet.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR R8000-100NAS Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit Wireless Router
Pros: I purchased this last year when our old router failed. I had to get it locally due to immediate need so I bought it from local big box retailer. (Newegg is cheaper).
This is absolutely the most reliable router I have had. No problems running 24/7 for over a year in house with 6-8 people depending on the month 4 teenagers and everyone with mobile devices - phones/laptops, 2 game systems and 2 desktops. At peak we have 12+ devices attached to the three networks at a time and we have no bandwidth problems, The secret is to assign different devices to different networks so you do not get bottle necking. I covers our entire 2800 sq ft house upper and lower floors with no dead spots. Net Genie is easy to set up and the parental controls let you limit access to internet content and set time blocks. Overall I am 100% satisfied with this router.
Cons: Pricey, not needed for everyone.
Other Thoughts: Look for sales, update firmware when available to keep it current. You get what you pay for - a reliable, high end, high speed router.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 980ti with air and water cooling potential out the box. Runs cool on air. Great looking card with solid cooler and back plate. Have not tried to water cool and will update when attached to my loop.
Cons: Barb Fittings may not be for some. They are non-standard and cannot be easily changed to compression fittings. Per Zotac these are M18 threads - this seems a bit big to me, I have not measured the yet. The lack of compression fittings may limit SLI but they can be moved to top position if needed. Moving fitting does not void warranty unless a leak causes the card to fail (Again per Zotac Tech Support).
Other Thoughts: Good for air or water cooling single card set up not sure how the water cooling set-up will fair in SLI. -1 egg for on standard barb fittings. Responsive tech support. Have had great results with Zotac products in past.READ FULL REVIEW
