Pros: Very good air flow. Plenty quiet and the LED against the fins looks pretty with the clear finish. Fins and chassis feels hard and sturdy so no vibrations.
Cons: It's a fan and it does it's job so I have no trouble with it at all.
Overall Review: Would be nice to have a fan speed switch but if you have a fan controller panel then who cares right? :)
Looks nice but not impressed
Pros: Aesthetically this product is perfect if you have an all Asus, RoG setup as the overall design and look is absolutely perfect.
Cons: My first issue was that I found that the backing of this mat does not stick to a glass desk very well at all compared to cheaper/other brand mouse pads I have used before. When I casually browse around with my mouse, within minutes the mat is partially already sliding off my desk and I am constantly having to slide it back up to where I like it. Most notable though, I don't know if mine is defective or if these particular pads were poorly made, but the surface material began to separate and bubble where my wrist rests from the back half of the mouse pad in a matter of about a month. Since then, it has grown bigger and bigger until now where it is open at the bottom. For the price tag and considering the two reputable brands attached to this product, I expected far more durability from this as the moisture from my palm and wrist from prolonged use shouldn't have caused this as most users buying this product most often would use it as much as I do.
Overall Review: Giving this 3 eggs is rather fair on my part as I love how it compliments my system build with my all Asus RoG products, however it fell short on durability and ability to hold to a glass surface which has become an inconvenience.
Pros: This thing is very worth the buy. I have enjoyed the quality of this Zalman product. It operates as advertised and I haven't had any issues with it. I really like the kit that came with it (thermal greese etc.) It looks good and under heavy workload my E8400 o/c at 3.45ghz goes no higher than 42c. The design works great with my Antec 900 so if you have this case or one similar I highly recommend this cpu cooler design from Zalman. Noise is hardly an issue, especially if you have software or hardware fan rpm controllers.
Cons: I noticed that when I disable my fan speed controller it operates at nearly 2900 rpm. However when my settings are enabled I have 3 preset speeds: Performance, Optimal and Silent. The fastest setting is only about 2600 rpm so I am rather confused about that. it may just be a software issue so the fact I make this a con is that I would expect my fan to be quieter when I disable my software.
Overall Review: The fins are very delicate so be careful when you handle this product out of the box. Do not apply any preasure or even touch the fan because if you do, the chassis holding the fan might bend inwards and cause your fan to hit against your heatsink fins. If this happens just jently give your fan a tug outward and it will stop rubbing or "ticking"
Pros: Nice and bright, easy to hide, easy installation and adds a really good look to your pc! Since it is so small you can put it pretty much anywhere you want it to be for your tower's best look.
Cons: Casts a big green A on my wall from one of the bulbs shinning through the side panel. Not really a con but I'm sure some may find it annoying. Although it depends on placement.
Overall Review: I installed mine in the bottom drive bay at the top in my Antec Nine Hundred so it shines on my video cards plus below and not above them, therefore giving it a powered by nVidia look.
