ASUS DirectCU II Radeon R9 270X DirectX 11.2 R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs amazingly cool and quiet
Looks fantastic
Non-reference, improved PCB
Will spank games @ 1080p for quite a while and holds its own at 1440p (My resolution)

Cons: Elpida memory
Lack of accessories

Other Thoughts: Giving my temps won't be of use due to the differences between systems and ambient environments, but know this: It will run cool and it will run quiet - regardless of your setup. I highly recommend this card. (It is also good for about 61K+ PPD in Folding@Home at factory clocks)

Corsair Air Series AF120 LED 120mm Quiet Edition High Airflow Fan Twin Pack - Purple (CO-9050016-PLED)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Unrestricted airflow is massive (Any significant barriers will create a lot of resistance noise, though)
-It is very purple. It's not blue, it's not white, it's purple. It's perfect.
-Twin-pack is a great value

Cons: -Does not like any resistance (It's a case fan, not a rad fan)
-Louder than the AF140 at full bore.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for the (illusive) purple LED fan, you've come to the right place. Corsair has deftly filled a niche with these fans.

BitFenix Spectre Pro Solid White 120mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Bad rad fan, noisy bearing 01/26/2014

This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro Solid White 120mm Case Fan

Pros: Fresh aesthetics
Can add LEDs
Should be fine as a case fan

Cons: full plastic construction
noisy bearing, particularly when not running at full blast
poor performance as a radiator fan
feels very plastic-y

Other Thoughts: Bought these to fit a color scheme and noise requirement. They did so, but the performance was below expectation so I took them out of the build. (Poor rad performance, even for a "quieter" fan. The bearing noise was also disruptive) I was disappointed considering the good experiences I've had with the Spectre series (non-pro).
