5 out of 5 eggs 05/31/2015

This review is from: NZXT AC-GRIDP-M1 GRID+ Digital Fan Controller

Pros: great device to make fans more quiet. I dont have to get up anymore from my seat to increase my fan speeds or quiet them down. I can do it all from my chair right on my screen :) quite nice for the lazy type like me!!

Cons: kinda hard to remove fans from the device. I found using a flat head screw driver to release retaining clips makes the fans come out smooth. Or just shave off the nub on all of your fans connectors so that the retaining clip wont grab it, then it comes off easily from the device.

Also sometimes if you dont release the retaining clip, the inner clip will entirely come out with your fan connector, also if you pull using the wire it will strip out the wires since a lot of force is required if you dont pull up the clips. use needle nose pliers to gently wiggle out the connectors by the SIDES when doing cable management along with the flat head screw driver to pull up the clips!

Other Thoughts: Other than OVERLY tight retaining clips its an absolute sigh of relief from noisy fans. Better yet you can control your fans without having to get up from your chair!!!!!!!! I hated getting up (my computer was far from my monitor) and turning the knobs up or down on my old fan controller. But with this I dont even have to get up. :)

Also make sure that if you use the extender wires that you plug into 3 pin side and not two pin side. Because if you only plug into the 2 pin then you wont have RPM reading and stuff. I didn't realize it at first at thought one of my ports on this thing was dead but actually it just didn't have 3rd pin plugged still was spinning though. It was just an error my part and the port worked it was just spinning my fan low since i had it on silent mode lol... couldn't hear it... eh that's my 2 cents .. sorry for my horrible grammar.. tired from putting my rig together.. and groggy.. gonna get some sleep now that shes done :)

also i wrote a bad review initially but i didn't realize i used the wrong dang wire lol....thought port was dead... so if my bad review shows up just disregard it.... >_<

1 out of 5 eggs burn out port 05/30/2015

This review is from: NZXT AC-GRIDP-M1 GRID+ Digital Fan Controller

Pros: convinient, great concept, software isnt as bad as everyone claims ...thats about it.

Cons: Bad design. its IMPOSSIBLE to remove fans from ports. For some reason fan port 5 was burnt out. Unit got very hot. I checked the wires, different fans etc.. no dice on port 5. The fans cannot be removed unless you use a flat head screw driver to release the retaining clip. WHen I first received the device..... that same port number 5, the plastic peice inside wasnt flush and I had to push it in. Its just a really bad design. If you value your fans do not get this. It will thrash all of your fan connectors just trying to remove the fans from the thing. Does not indicate flat head MAJOR DESIGN the full thing, ill explain. A screw driver is needed to remove fans, it no where mentions this in the instructions. The connectors were so tight once plugged in even with the flat head screw driver it completely ruined one fan, it stripped the pins on the fan just plugging it in.... baaad design. once plugged in the only thing that is visible is the fans wire and can only pull the fan out by the wire as you use a flat head screw driver...if that makes any sense. I would wait until they implement a new design, it is a great concept however but since this is the first gizmo of its kind, I would wait until revision 2 comes out, and wait until they acknowledge the MAJOR design flaw thats obviously present...if ever. Also when I first plugged the thing in it made my bios reset for some reason? IDK, but I would stay away. Especially since I get no telemetry data on port number 5 even after trouble shooting. After typing this im going to try and return it instead of getting a replacement.....

Other Thoughts: Buggy, major design flaws, would expect better from NZXT, ruins fans, strips wires and fan connectors. Ruined a 15 $ fan :(

Pros: This Ram was for a gamer build. It looks good with a windowed computer case. Runs at stated speed. I havnt tried overclocking but I dont really do that sort of thing now a days. I bought it mainly because the cool heatsink design and fancy yellow color lol. It just looks really nice in my case, what can i say! lol.

Cons: Had to manually clock at 1600 in bios, but most ram requires this. But to a noob, they wont know to clock it properly. no big deal though for your average pc gamer geek.

Other Thoughts: works good! no problems! runs fast. I use this at 1600mhz w cas9 along with a gtx 760 with battlefield 4 on ultra. runs smooth as silk. No need to overclock.
