Summary: The model I received had a wire routed into the fan blades causing a terrible noise on power up. Luckily I was able to push the wire out of the way without voiding the warrenty seal, but it means that Silverstone is not testing these units before shipping since there's no way this unit would have passed. I was dissapointed to receive ver 1.1, it really is more noisy than necessary during idel - see other reviews about this problem.
Pros: Modular wiring helps reduce clutter. Small size. Relatively low noise but could be better, see cons. Fits in ATX case with supplied adapter.
Cons: Fan is more noisy than it should be during idel useage. NCIX is shipping ver 1.1, while ver 2.0 has supposedly fixed the fan noise problem.
