Pros
Looks
Function
Cons
Not a perfect fit
Hard to use another fan
Summary
This items looks pretty good in a 690 advanced. There is a bit of space between the unit and the case. I could not fit a yate loon fan in this unit because I did not have the proper screws as the fan that is installed is thin. Other then that I have had no problems with this.

Pros
Easy to install ( lots of mounting options)
Looks nice
works well
Cons
dust filter mesh isnt that effective
longer screws needed if you want to switch the fan for a different one.
Dust becomes apparent after a week or so of usage.
Summary
Bought this to add extra airflow to my case and it looks good while doing it so I am rather pleased. Can be price matched down which is a nice plus. The only downside I see is that you'd have to clean the dust out more often than you'd want to clean it.

Pros
-Excellent quality product
-Multiple mounting options
-Fairly silent fan
Cons
-Manual a bit confusing
-Price
Summary
When I first saw this, I tought it really was an ingenious product. Sure, you can mount a fan inside your bay using zip-ties and stuff, bit it definitly won't look as good as this product.

I bought it simply to add more air flow to my case, as I have a Lian-Li full tower that has separate chambers (top/bottom) and the top part did not get enough air. To use in that situation, you need to screw 4 little rectangular brackets on the side of the product, then you can insert  in your bay. In that configuration it will use 3x5.25 bays. Mesh filter is included to keep some dust away.

The fan is 12mm thick instead of the regular 25mm, if you want to replace it you'll need to find longer screws. However the fan is silent enough at stock 1200 RPM and plugged into most fan header on the mobo you'll be able to control the speed (IE Asus Q-Fan). If not I suggest a Zalman Fan Mate 2 should you really need to lower the speed.

Finally, the price of the unit is a bit high... when you do a cost breakdown you have a 8$ fan, 2$ fan filter; the rest goes for the screws, brackets and metal case. I feel at 20$ it would be a fair price - you might be able to pricematch it.

Pros
- modular! instal as 3bay fan or 1 bay hardrive with fan cooler
- simple design
- lots of brackets accessories included
Cons
- replacing stock fan would require purchasing longer screws
Summary
To keep this short the product is very well thought out for its price. It comes with plenty of hardware and brackets so not being able to install this is unlikely. Unlike the previous reviewer i have no idea why they think this is flimsy. This is painted steel bent into a box, yes it has some give (without the fan installed) but it is very sturdy, unlikely to break at all. The instructions are a meaningless collection if poor drawings and small font, best to try a bracket and see if it works.

It get 4/5 stars only because to change the fan and install a typical 120mm fan you need to purchase longer screws. The reason is the stock 120mm fan is about 5mm thick, this is so it can be installed below a hardrive in the single bay orientation to cool it... very handy feature is you've already filled your cases hardrive bays full. Bottom line this product is fantastic, very well thought out regardless of the screw thing. Remember to price-match if you plan to buy a few of these for hardrive storage/cooling. Underrated if you ask me, i like it a lot.

To see pics of it installed on my Obsidian 800D (and other NCIX products like ram cooling, Noctua fans, cathodes) see my post on Overclock.net

Modular design:
1. 3 bays with fan cooling, or
2. mount single bay with hardrive mounts and hardrive cooling fan (stock one is thin for this reason)

Pros
This item works really well had no problems with install for 3.5" drive! It comes with all the hardware required for different install scenarios!
Cons
none
Summary
I will order more of these as I feel they are a great bargain, but I suggest a price match if you are getting any number of them. I like the fact that they are multipurpose!!

Pros
Provides an additional air source to my PC, does what I bought it for.
Cons
Hard to install a thicker fan (the one included is thinner than the standard), the metal used bends easily, the included air filter is just a metal mesh.
Summary
I purchased this 5.25" bay converter in order to provide an additional source of airflow to my PC. The mounting process was fairly easy, however the included screws only let you install the provided fan. For that matter, the product only receives 3/5. Furthermore, the metal brackets are fairly soft and bend easily.
