This review is from: be quiet! SILENTWINGS 3 PWM 140mm HIGH SPEED
Pros: This fan is one of the quietest I've used. Not only does it produce less noise, the noise it does make is of a kind that's easily ignored.
Cons: It uses push pins for attachment which are near impossible to insert without watching them all the way (may be tricky in certain cases).
Other Thoughts: The fan itself could REALLY use an arrow stamped on the housing to indicate direction of airflow. There's no real indication of which way it's meant to go.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Z170-A Configurator
Pros: The q-connect (a standard asus feature) made connecting the case speaker, power switch, etc. much easier.
Has connection for a switch (possibly your standard reset switch, if you like) that restarts the computer and launches the BIOS interface
Cons: A severe shortage of USB ports, making a header bracket (not included) a necessity
Bios has crippling lag with keyboard or mouse, which makes it incredibly frustrating to use. (several seconds to respond to a keystroke, including using up or down to move through the list of settings)
Included software won't install if you used a previous Asus board (possibly only for AMD-based boards) until you do a system refresh (in win 10) or clean install
system is unstable when using included xtreme tuning utility
Other Thoughts: Ships separately (and days slower than) any other items you've ordered.
I've built and upgraded several systems of the years, so I know there's always some pain and hiccups with a major upgrade like this one, but this is the worst experience I've ever had with an upgrade, and that includes a few dead-on-arrival items.
Pros: Comparable price and performance for it's time.
very easy to use and install.
No problems until it failed without warning.
Cons: Failed without warning after only a few years.
Apparently this particular model is known to spontaneously fail thanks to a new platter coating Seagate started using with this model. It also has a higher failure rate than Western Digital and Hitachi combined.
Other Thoughts: Do your research before you buy. Be sure to check the 1-2 star reviews to look for common problems.READ FULL REVIEW
