This review is from: CRYORIG QF120 Silent 120mm PWM Fan
Pros: Totally silent up to ~80% power, then becomes a steady audible hum that still isn't bad.
6 year warranty.
Nice length sleeved cables.
Matches by black\white scheme.
Were ~$10 each on sale.
Cons: Did not see that 140mm versions were on the way. Would have waited another couple weeks and got those. Am disappointed now.
Other Thoughts: Have two of these as front intakes and two of the QF120 Performance on my radiator. All four are completely silent the majority of the time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very nice looking.
Great platinum ratings.
Cons: zero cons
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this PSU or any be quiet! model to anyone looking to put together or upgrade their systems.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: very nice looking case; the tempered glass is very attractive, the textured metal also adds to the appeal.
mostly well designed; it is very roomy in the interior for it's size, has multiple options for lots of fan placements with totally customizable vertical sliders for screw positioning in the front top & rear, has decent cable management setup behind the motherboard(not the roomiest but it suffices), has the PSU & drives hidden away from sight(see cons), multiple options for any sized radiator(or two).
magnetic dust filters for front/rear. slide out filter for PSU.
Cons: the biggest con for me is the lack of moddability; I cannot remove the shelf hiding the PSU from sight through the window. my Dark Power Pro 11 is a very sexy PSU and deserves to be seen.
SSD tray mounts behind the motherboard are not positioned correctly; the drives have a lip of metal jutting out under their contact points and the power/SATA cables do not fit correctly because of it.
drive trays under the PSU shelf are also positioned too far towards the rear; there is not enough room for HD power cables (they are being smashed in by the tempered glass).
neither SSD mounts nor drive trays have rubber mounts to reduce disk vibration on the trays.
black paint flakes off very easily from the texture metal. just touching around the edges of screw holes and they are showing bare silver metal.
motherboard standoffs; board is sitting right up against the case plate on the right side and angled SATA cables will not fit correctly.
rubber grommets; instead of holes with grommets the motherboard plate has a large plastic shield("card holder") covering the cable's access point. doesn't look bad necessarily but we should be given matching rubber grommets to place in the hole to use instead of this plastic shield if desired. though this plastic shield does hold your GPU's board/backplate if positioned.
has seven fan placement options but built-in fan controller only supports up to 5 fans.
Other Thoughts: the only things I would really need to change is the moddabilty of the PSU shelf and lightening the tempered glass a bit.
I want my PSU visible
and now I have to buy a LED strip for the window to serve any purpose whatsoever because it is too dark to see anything through it at all
the rest I can live happily with though I am worried of the effects of all the extra stress on my drive cables due to the bad placement of the motherboard and drive trays.
