KINGWIN CFR-012LB 120mm Red LED 120 x 120 x 25 mm long life bearing case fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: LEDs on these look great, not too bright not too dim, and with the transparent plastic used they really glow.

Cons: I've used several Kingwin fans, some LED some not, however all similar RPM ratings, and I can tell you this....they put off this slight, almost buzzing sound that drives me mental. I returned the first few I bought, thinking that perhaps the bearings were having my dismay the replacements I received made the same noise. I'm assuming this has something to do with the lower RPMs and the bearing used.

Other Thoughts: These fans work, they do...and they look awesome...but that buzzing sound has to go before I lose my mind!

Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid Tower Computer Case with All-Black Interior and Windowed Side Panel

4 out of 5 eggs Awesome case with a couple minor complaints 10/26/2015

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid Tower Computer Case with All-Black Interior and Windowed Side Panel

Pros: Aesthetically speaking the case looks amazing with a sleek, relatively minimalist design, awesome side panel window and a good paint job. Airflow is superb, with 1 included 120mm Blue LED front intake fan and room for 5 more (2 top, 1 rear, 1 bottom, 1 side). Screw hole mounting measurements (fans, motherboard, psu, optical drive) were all exact, leaving hardware to align and mount perfectly. All this being said, there were a couple very minor gripes I had with this case (see cons).

Cons: The cable management can be a nightmare if you aren't working with a modular PSU (and possibly even then). There is little to no room behind the motherboard tray for cable routing and only a small corner to tuck them away near the HDD cage and front intake fan. The bottom 120mm fan mount becomes useless if you're using a PSU that's too long (like most higher-watt PSUs these days are) as it physically blocks two of the 120mm fan mounting holes.

Other Thoughts: All in all this is a great case, very well built with awesome airflow. I've used several of these for customer builds and haven't received a single complaint to date.

I'd highly recommend looking for a PSU offering flat cables (thermaltake is usually what I use), they are MUCH easier to route and hide given the minimal space. Don't bother buying a 120mm fan for the bottom mount, most PSUs on the market today are going to block those mounting holes.

EVGA GeForce GTX 960 02G-P4-2966-KR 2GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Fans don't spin unless the core reaches X degrees, depending on your EVGA Precision settings.
-Extremely efficient architecture. Very low power consumption/heat at both idle/load.
-Overclocks/overvolts very well. +100mhz on both core/memory without overvolt.
-Extremely easy installation and rock solid drivers (Nvidia)

Cons: Included software (EVGA Precision) is still a little goofy compared to its competitor in terms of ease of use. Non-intuitive interface...looks cool though.

Other Thoughts: This card is a win. I was blown away with what Nvidia was able to do with a 128bit memory bus. Performs noticeably better than the 760 it replaced with way lower temps/power consumption. Add to that the fact that it's an EVGA card...meaning you get the EVGA awesome warranty/customer service, factory overclocked with an aftermarket cooler and uses a beefier power spec and you've got a home run. Good work EVGA/Nvidia.
