AeroCool Shark Fan 12cm Devil Red Edition 120mm Case Fan

5 out of 5 eggs nice, very nice 11/17/2011

This review is from: AeroCool Shark Fan 12cm Devil Red Edition 120mm Case Fan

Pros: pretty darn quiet for amount of air it's moving, I have 2 on the front panel of my xclio nighthawk color and the fans I hear are xclio' ambient temp for the entire case is running 23c with the case maxed out but before changing the stock panel fans to these I ran 34c so a nice change that equates to better air movement

Cons: none really, it does what it does and so I can't complain

Other Thoughts: the mounting bracket could be slimmer, the stock xclio's fit with room to spare against my corsair h50 but these are rubbing, there is room for the design to be slimmed down and still get great airflow so I hope the manufacturer is paying attention because I would like more of these fans, also how about a 256 color version of this fan :-)

5 out of 5 eggs Woiuld buy again 11/05/2011

This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Upgrading from the 890fxa-gd70 to this. I can't complain because as always MSI has given me a solid product to work with. Its very nice for overclocking, runs at decent temps...I'm idle at 27C and 36C under load with a 960T processor and corsair H50 cooler...Very Nice indeed. Nice change-up to all SataIII ports instead of fooling around with 6 main ports and a 7th crammed in on the board. Lots of software to accompany the board if your into that sort of thing. Everything is running smooth and fast. I overclock manually but the option to use the Genie is a plus

Cons: USB3.0 port is very nice as well, however wouldve been better if I could've just plugged in my front ports to the board vs running them to the back and plugging into an adaptor that plugs to the board MSI==yeah I know your reading. Bios is a mess---Why the change, do we really need to point and click, after all its a bios and have we gotten that lazy that we need to point and click to set the bios

Other Thoughts: MSI - fix the bios, how long do we have to wait before the bios is right the first time around, I'd would've fired the programmer long ago that's wrting this mess of a bios for these high end boards that's for sure ( but hey it's only the company reputation that's on the line )!! - catch up with competitors and make it so my 2133 memory which the boards have supported since the 890fxa can be done through the ratio setting in the bios vs waiting for AMD to catch up with their memory controller (how hard can it be, that's why you pay your programmers isn't it) and build an adaptor for front side USB3.0 that can plug-in to my pci-e x1 slot so my cables can stay routed inside the box

XIGMATEK Freezing Point G4718 Thermal Paste Non Silicone Metal Grade Proprietary Formulated
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: does it I've used yet, a little went a very long ways. Feels silky to the touch spread kinda stiff but covered well. Temps are very good. Using a msi 990fxa-gd80 board and AMD 960T processor w corsair H50 cooler and hitting 36C under medium load 27C idle

Cons: non can't complain

Other Thoughts: no other thoughts it's just a grease
