4 out of 5 eggs Excellent case fans - but do not use for CPUs 10/05/2016

This review is from: Corsair ML120 PRO LED CO-9050041-WW 120mm 120mm Premium Magnetic Levitation PWM Fan

Pros: Excellent design
Quiet at low RPM
No bearing noise (of course)

Cons: Lots of wind noise at high RPM
Expensive

Other Thoughts: I really hope that Corsair releases a version of this fan for CPU usage with a lower RPM limit, as it is unacceptably loud when it exceeds 80% of its top speed and no CPU needs that much CFM.

ASUS Z170-WS LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 2 M.2 slots
PLX PCIE Bridge so that you can run anything that you plug in
Many USB ports
XMP memory profiles work correctly
Uses Intel NICs for both ports

Cons: Reports incorrect CPU temperature until the CPU is under load (for me it shows 2C below room temperature on my i7 6700k)
The fan settings can not be adjusted very far (I never want to run my 90 CFM CPU fan at 100%)
Crashes when any overclocking is attempted using either the auto tuning tool or manual settings (at least for me)
Does not get BIOS updates.
ASUS AI Suite 3 - The fan speed app minimizes to a large icon with a strange shape above the notification area

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this board over another PLX equipped one.
