Cons: I couldn't even install it. This heatsink doesn't come with a backplate to keep it attached to the mobo. It assumes you have a lesser one already installed and the instructions ask you to use that one. The 17-6700K I just bought doesn't come with an Intel cheapo heatsink and none of the older ones I have are 1151 compatable to now I have to RMA this one, take the hit on shipping, and wait till I get my next heatsink in to finish my build. Literally nowhere on this product does it warn that it doesn't come with a backplate. Way to save 15 cents Arctic.... Never buying your cheap products again.
Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this product or this manufacturer to anyone. Any company that would elect to save the pennies it would take to include a simple piece of metal to ensure that all customers that buy their product can use it is probably cutting corners elsewhere and their products shouldn't be trusted. They even include cheap a plastic back mount for backwards 1150, 1155, and 1156 compatibility... The stupidity of this is beyond me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Portable. Dual USB. Cheap.
Cons: It takes a while to charge???
Other Thoughts: My wife and I use this on every trip we go on. We always make sure it's charged up before hand. The dual USB lets us charge both our phones at the same time (or a phone and a tablet). It takes a while to charge, but we can literally run both our phones for 3 days solid off this before having to look for another place charge.
I would recommend this to anyone.
This review is from: AOC FC-2000 PCI Slot Case Cooler
Pros: Fan for a PCI slot. Can be good in some cases where additional cooling is needed but not a lot of room for fans.
I thought it would be a useful addition to pull heat off the GPU's and power supply.
Cons: It was a little loud. There was a noticeable difference in noise when I took the fan out of the case. I have 10 fans altogether in my case not counting the PS and 2 video cards (4 in push/pull on the H100 radiator, 4 in push/pull on my HDD raid array, 1 on back, and 1 on bottom), so I was surprised when my PC became "quieter".
Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these initially and only installed one. After about 18mo the first one started to make super loud "jet engine" noises. I swapped it with the other fan, but even working fine my wife and I were surprised what a noise difference the fan made. Maybe it's because there's nothing to dampen it like the other case fans???
Like I listed in the Pro's, I think it would be good for a case with not a lot of space for fans, but usually you want those mATX and mITX cases to be quiet... so it kind of defeats the purpose.
