NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, Matte BLK/Red
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: +Probably the best looking case you'll ever see. No matter what color you get it will look fantastic. Great for those people who like to go all out with color and fancy cabling.
+Decent airflow considering the covered front panel.
+Nice shroud for PSU to make cable management cleaner (but not always easier, see cons).
+Large side panel to show off your work.
+Decently low price.
+It's just... so gorgeous. I can't overstate how beautiful it is.

Cons: -If you plan to use water cooling, make sure your radiator isn't too big. If it is, you'll have to mount it on the top with the fans covering your RAM!
-It IS a mid-tower, so I'm not subtracting a point here, but it is fairly cramped, especially with a large water cooler (obviously) or a large heatsink or a larger GPU.
-Horrible 2.5" SSD mount location. Located on top of the shroud, it's in such a horrible place because it's so hard to plug in a sata power cable.
-If you need to do anything with your PSU, you have to dismantle your whole rig as accessing the PSU is a nightmare.

Other Thoughts: So, I'm really on the fence about this one. It's so clean and simple and beautiful looking, but all that is also kind of a downfall for me. Every design element that looks nice somehow hinders the way the case works. The cable management on the back panel is sort of tight leading to you having to force the panel on, which is never fun. The solid front panel means that even with the 3 included front fans it still just doesn't move air well over components. The only way the airflow would be ok would be if you spend some real money on high quality fans that push more air than a typhoon.

Despite its' issues, it's still a solid case if you aren't worried about the airflow and just want a nice looking case that does function well. And I feel it's worth mentioning that while there is no 5.25" drive bay for a CD drive, you won't miss it. I bought an external one for if I need it and I used it once to install Windows, which I could've done with a USB, and haven't used it since. So don't let that deter you too much from this case.

Razer Goliathus Gaming Mouse Mat - Fragged Control Edition - Standard M
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Does not move during use
-Comfortable feel
-Very accurate
-Looks cool
-Not too big for me

Cons: -Could be a bit large for some desks
-After 5 months it's starting to wear out a bit

Other Thoughts: This mousepad is awesome. Absolutely worth every penny. I purchased the medium size and it fits my desk perfect but for some people it will probably be too big. Luckily though a smaller size is available.

The only "problem" i've had so far is that the mousepad has started to wear down a little in one place. I have my sensitivity fairly high however so I don't move my mouse much from one area so I'm not too surprised or upset about it.

Overall this is an amazing product and I highly recommend it for everyone

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Good heat spreaders
-Stable
-Quick
-Comes in different colors

Cons: -Heat spreaders a bit big

Other Thoughts: It's memory. Does what you need it to and can be overclocked easily. The heat spreaders do their job well and add a nice flair to the inner workings. If that's not your thing, it comes in a nice neutral black as well.

There's only one issue and that is the size. If you're using a bigger heatsink on your CPU that goes over your RAM slot (i.e. Hyper 212), they will not fit under it. At all. Unless you want to remove the heat spreaders from one stick, go for the Corsair Vengeance low profile which has the same specs as this, just smaller heat spreaders.
