Fit and Finish
Now that the hard work has been done, all you have to do is put the aluminum knobs on and tighten them with the included alan key which pcmod's has so smartly included with the pack (way to go!!) After this, you are left with a finished product. Turn all the knobs all the way counter-clockwise, cross your fingers and you should end up with this.
Looks pretty sahweet eh? (Yes, I'm Canadian), and the finish is quite impressive I might say. Now is the time to try the knobs and test to see if the fan speeds vary according to the amount the knob is turned (please, no jokes heh). Take a peek at the eye candy!!
This, in my mind has been one of the easiest and most practical case mods I have ever done. It is a great thing to finally tame the 80dBA roaring of my case fans. When I'm at idle, all the fans can be turned down or off to conserve noise and to make a more comfortable computer environment for me. It's nice to not have to put up with the noise and to peacefully make up this review for you.
- Control of fan noise
- Ease of installation
- Looks awesome in the dark
- Adds a little spice to my relatively boring computer
- Something neat to show your friends when they come to visit
- Choice of LED colour would be nice (which has been changed for the revision 2.0 of this item)
OVERALL SCORE: 9.5/10 (TWEAKNEWS RECOMMENDED) (Awesome Mod!!)
