Corsair Air Series SP120 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan  - Twin Pack (CO-9050014-WW)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Better than the stock H100i Fans, but not a lot. 03/18/2014

This review is from: Corsair Air Series SP120 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan - Twin Pack (CO-9050014-WW)

Pros: They seem to work well as far as air movement is concerned and interface successfully with my H100i, but the quality isn't as impressive as I'd hoped. No motor noise.

Cons: One of them already sounds like it's spinning off balance, which is incredible since they are hanging in a downward position. Usually this is a problem with sleeve fans, these shouldn't suffer from that same problem, little lone after a month or so of use. I'm not sure I'm going to be investing in any more Corsair fans. They don't seem to live up to the hype.

Other Thoughts: The h100i is awesome, the fans that come with it though are total junk. I don't think I would buy these again to replace the stock fans, but the cooler works amazing for how small it is.

Corsair Force Series 3 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Not the fastest SSD on the market due to asynchronous memory, but far faster than a single HDD. You save a good chunk of money as a result though, synchronous NAND drives carry a much heavier tag. Price per pound (I got mine for about $1/gig), very much worth it. No compatibility issues on my EVGA X58 motherboard, no corruption, no special configuration; I just plugged it in and it has worked flawlessly.

Cons: I wish it was a terabyte? ;D

COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Best Case I have Ever Owned 04/08/2011

This review is from: COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: The layout of this case is awesome. The ability to dedicate an air channel from above for the CPU, below the case for the PSU, and from the front of the case for your video cards, is absolutely amazing. My machine is dead silent, everything is cool, and I didn't have to invest in water cooling. Should it strike me in the future however, you can cram a radiator inside this beast in a couple different locations.

The advanced versions gadgets are definitely worth having. The SATA docking port and VGA bracket alone makes it worth the $10. Say goodbye to sagging video cards putting strain on their power connectors or your PCI-E slots.

The hard drive rack is excellent; tool less, and reduce-able. You can remove most of it if you think it's an obstruction. Most of us don't have more than 3 discs, in which case you can leave the forward 120mm intake with a 100% clear path.

If you don't have space for a HAF-X, this case is the only worthy option IMO. I now own 2 of thes

Cons: Price is a little high for a mid tower, but definitely worth it IMO. It's much cheaper to buy a $90 case that does the job than to stack up several $60 cases that eventually annoy you to the point you toss them out.

Other Thoughts: I say it again, the add-ons in the advanced version FAR outweigh the extra $10. The VGA support arm is worth it's weight in gold. Don't skimp. The third fan alone would probably cost $10.

One other small tidbit, most cases have a bezel headphone jack that suffers from a substantial loss of power vs. directly connecting to your sound card. My CM690II doesn't seem to suffer from this. My Sennheizer HD595's appear to drive just as well from the bezel jack as they do from being directly connected to the sound card.
