Pros: Very quiet and small for a 1Kw PSU. Very sleek matte black coating. Not sure why, but I didn't realize it was FULLY modular, so that was a very nice perk when it arrived. The cables are long and fit in my NZXT Phantom 820 very nicely.
I like the fact that the 8pin and 6pin PCIe power connectors are incorporated onto the same cable!
Cons: It does not have a power cutoff switch on the back. I like to have it as a quick power cut in case something happens like my water cooling loop springing a leak (heaven forbid!)
Other Thoughts: So far so good!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This motherboard is beautiful! I have my 2600k installed and underwater running at a very stable 4.8ghz. The UEFI took a little getting used to (I'm used to ASUS UEFI terminology) But it overclocked and required less voltage than my ASUS Sabretooth P67.
Cons: It says it is an ATX motherboard but it is actually about 1.5 inches narrower than that. Your RAM ports will not be supported by motherboard standoffs on the right side (as you look at it while mounted) So PLEASE be sure you mount your RAM onto the board before mounting the board into the case (should be a no brainer, tho)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This case is incredible! It's beautiful stylish and has every feature of every great case built into it. It has the sleekness of the Phantom (of which I own) and the utility of the Switch! All of my components were exceedingly easy to install. I love the fact that it comes with ample space to install a 360 rad in the top and a 240 rad in the bottom with zero modding required. The stock fans are very quiet and the build in lighting system is pretty neat.
Cons: There are just a few here but nothing to make me remove an egg for:
Some people may find this case to be too big. It is a very tall case but its that way because of the pedestal on the bottom to allow for more air intake in case you mount a rad on the bottom, and room to install a push/pull configured rad on the top.
Some reviews will show that you can remove the top part of the chassis (the part under the top bezel) to install your radiator easily, what they don't show you is that the wiring from the panel on the top (power, fan controllers, etc.) are routed through it, therefore you have to remove all of the ties and route them through the top. That is a LOT of cables, so I just stuck with mounting the radiator the normal way.
The inner lighting is mediocre but the outer lighting effects are bright and clear.
Price?... though it's completely worth it.
