ARCTIC Accelero Mono Plus VGA Cooler - nVidia & AMD, 120mm Efficient PWM Fan, SLI/CrossFire
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Installed this on an nVidia GTX 460. Installation was easy and dropped temps about 10 degrees.

Cons: It's pretty large - it's more like 2.5 cards wide with the 460 attached.

Other Thoughts: People have complained about the thermal adhesive for the ram sinks not working, Really - the compound just needs a while to setup. I let it sit for 24 hours and had no issues with ram sinks falling off. I would recommend using some Arctic Silver thermal paste and maybe picking up some quality thermal adhesive if you're really worried about it.

Sunbeam PL-RS-6 Rheosmart 6 Fan Controller 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I love this controller. It also looks great in my Bitfenix Prodigy - the mesh design makes it look like it was built to match this case! Plugged all my case fans in and it worked like a charm. Also, turning the dial all the way down does turn fans completely off - unlike other fan controllers that only turn them down to a slow speed.

Cons: Non so far.

Other Thoughts: The unit had good construction and it came with PWM (3 pin) extensions and several molex to PWM converters. Supposedly has an automatic mode that you can enable per fan - I haven't used that feature personally.

BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 120mm Case Fan

3 out of 5 eggs OK fan, not what I wanted 06/09/2013

This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 120mm Case Fan

Pros: They seem to push the advertised 50+CFM. Almost silent - I couldn't hear them over the sound of my GTX 470. They also come with both screws and rubber anti-vibration mounts... that takes us to the cons...

Cons: Although they come with screws, the mounting holes aren't threaded. I destroyed 3 screws trying to force thread them with a screwdriver and then gave up. I had planned to mount these on top of my Bitfenix Prodigy, however this would have been impossible using the included rubber mounts - they leave a little nubbin sticking out after they have been mounted - making it impossible to attached the fan filter/cover. I also couldn't use them as the front intake fan for the same reason - the front cover wouldn't have attached with the little rubber nubs sticking out.

Other Thoughts: All in all - they aren't horrible - they are quiet and they push an OK amount of air. With that being said, if you want silent fans, and can make use of the anti-vibration mounts, these might be for you.
