Pros: Frankly, this case is great. It has TONS of ventilation and supports a full-length GPU (not enough room for SLI).
It is exactly what I wanted: a case that is large enough to contain a bluray drive, HDD, SDD, a Hyper EVO 212 fan, and GTX 970 GPU... but small enough to place onto the table. I wanted minimalism and step away from a traditional tower to a smaller form factor.
Build quality is excellent. The finish and fit is great and has a well-thought out design. It has various, creative mounting locations for your peripherals. Includes a 450W power supply!
Cons: The included screws did not fit appropriate devices, luckily I had a stash of my own. The user's manual is also worthless and uninformative / unclear. There are included HDD brackets, but gives little info on how/where to place them inside the case.
The 450W power supply that is included is cheap. It also does not contain an additional PCI-E power connector, but there are conversion plugs you can buy for just a few dollars.
Space inside is tight... it takes a patient person to perform proper cable management.
Other Thoughts: I'd recommend a modular power supply when installing your computer. Firstly because it's tight inside the case, but also to buy a better, higher quality PSU.
Overall this is a fun case to build. It takes creativity and planning in order to properly construct an awesome gaming platform (i.e. how to position components, how to route cables, where to mount fans. Fortunately, the biggest constraints are GPU size and PSU cables. Otherwise, this case will let you do what you wish!
Pros: Runs very cool! Also, it doesn't require additional power from the PSU to run. I also like that it is VERY short and near-guaranteed to fit inside any case.
Look, I realize there are some awesome GPU's out there nowadays, but honestly this workhorse still performs! I coupled it with an overclocked FX-6300 cpu and I find this thing runs Witcher 3, Deus Ex, Pillars of Eternity, World of Tanks, and other games excellently! Note, you can't power up to ULTRA graphics settings in these games, but I get at least high settings!
Cons: From what I can tell, this thing has no, real cons. The market perpetually brings out newer and faster GPU's, but I really feel this card will sustain me in coming game technology for the foreseeable future!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very, very beautiful monitor. It does away with the ugly, black plastic bevels for a stylized, edge-less glass. The build quality is fantastic.
I upgraded from a TN-type LED monitor and I can notice a phenomenal difference. This monitor is absolutely gorgeous. The colors and clarity is tremendous.
I'm a heavy PC gamer and was worried about the 5ms response time vs. older, TN-type monitors with a 2ms response time. You can't tell the difference. If this is your only hang-up, forget it. This monitor is fantastic for gaming. It looks beautiful and works wonderfully.
Cons: It is VERY shiny. The high-gloss screen means your colors and images will be razor sharp, but it also means the screen will reflect a lot of light in the environment. This hasn't quite been a negative for me yet, but I can see this being troublesome. You trade clarity for reflection.
Other Thoughts: Get it. One of the highest rated monitors around. IPS display, HDMI/DVI/VGA output AND has an audio out for HDMI throughput!
It even has a magnet base for keeping paper clips, etc. down! Very thoughtful design. Highly recommended for movies and gaming
