Pros: Comes wit 3 fans already installed, 1-120mm rear and 2-140mm front.
and you can turn the fans LED's on or of via a button on the top of the case. 2 USB 2.0 and 2-USB 3.0 on the case top. There is enough room in the case to hold the Noctua NH-D14 cooler as well as liquid cooling. Can hold up to 8 hard drives and has a cage to hold at least 2 SSD drives. The cage for the SSD drives can be mounted on the HD cage if the top four are removed.Solid case and worth the price.
Cons: Because of the two front fans you're limited to 3 bays on the front of the case. In one of my cases, I have 2, I'm using the Enermax Liqtech 240. Because of the CPU power connector and the CPU fan connection being on the top of the motherboard you cannot install the fans inside of the case, the must be installed outside and the screws that comes with the Liqtech 240 to mount the fans are not really long enough to mount the fans because the holes on top of the case are recessed. I have two grills on my fans so that nothing can come in contact with the fans so needless to say I had to get longer screws but at the same time I had to use washers on the 2 front and 2 rear mounting holes because the 4 screws come in contact with the inside of the radiator. Also I guess the type of power supply I'm using I had to remove the cage for the SSD drives. I don't have any of these anyway so I didn't mind. The fans are not PWM, would be nice if they were.
Other Thoughts: I have two of these cases. I like them a lot. They are really sturdy cases and although there are some limitations they are good cases. I didn't know if my NH-D14 would fit so I contacted Tech support and they said it should, and it does with room to spare. I've never used water cooling before so this is a learning experience and even though I had to mount the fans for the Liqtech outside of the case, the fans work just fine. I would recommend this case.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sunbeam RHK-EX-BA Rheobus-Extreme Fan Controller Panel
Pros: Nicely built, easy to install, easy to control fans.
I have 3 Delta fans, the AFB1212GHE-CF0 and these things just scream at max rpm. The amperage is what I worry about cause at 2.45A(Max-3.24A) it's hard to find anything to control these things. I have to admit the Sunbeam RHK-EX-BA does the job and with no problems at start up (that's where I usually get problems cause of the amps to start the fans). I've had the Delta's now for about a year and couldn't use them. The other fan controllers just didn't have enough umph to start the fans at start up but with this Sunbeam, I've set them and they start right up. I know about the toggles but I wanted the rheostat cause with the toggles you only have low, off and high but at least with the rheostat you can set them where you want them and forget them.
Cons: Could use a little more length in the cables but not enough to take an egg off.
Other Thoughts: I've been using this for about 3 weeks and had no problems at all, I just hope it stays that way, getting tired of trying to find something to drive these Deltas without having to revert to a toggle controller.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Built solid, easy to install, had the 2.0 for two years with no problems whatsoever and the 3.0 are fast to. Oh, and I had all the screws to.
Cons: None and don't expect any.
Other Thoughts: I've had the Rosewill 2.0 (RX-358 V2) since 2/25/09 and they have worked flawlessly, not one problem at all. So needless to say when Rosewill came out with the 3.0 I just had to get two of these. They have been on since I've gotten them, about a week now, and so far not one problem. I took my 2 drives, which were internal and put them in the 3.0 enclosure, 500gig each and even though I have USB 2.0 on my motherboard, these have worked without a hitch. Had to transfer files and again, not a problem. One thing you do have to get used to and that is both lights being on. I'm used to the 2.0 and only one light being on. By the way, these lights are a little bit brighter than my modem lights so they don't bother me at all, I kinda like them myself. I figured that if I ever have to replace my motherboard and it has USB 3.0 which it probably will, I'm already there. I've bought quite a lot of things from Newegg and Rosewill and in all honesty, THEY BOTH ROCK.READ FULL REVIEW
