Pros: Price vs Perfomance extremely good here, if not the best right now.
Future proof for a long time
Can play and will play anything on max settings for a long time
Cons: Fan noise
Other Thoughts: Im a bit ocd when it comes to noise. I like things silent. The reference cooler is anything but that. Idle and low end games the sound is inaudible. You play a heavy graphics game and the thing sounds like a hairdryer on high. I bought the artic accelro cooler anyways so it doesnt matter. Regardless 95C while gaming even though they say its safe scares me. Overall the card is amazing and I dont have any regerts. For 400 dollars though would of loved to see better cooling on it. Other deal with noise,get a aftermarket cooler, or wait for non reference coolers to come out on the cards.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Visually looks good.
Temp read out is very nice to have.
Seems to move a good amount of air and keeps inside cool.
Pull out motherbaord tray really nice, would have rathered had top part be able to come undone though
Cons: Flimsy metal.
Psu is junk.
Not the best layout inside for newer parts(requires modifcation of case).
Little overpriced in my opnion.
Poor quaitly control
Other Thoughts: Probably would give this a 3.5 if I could. Not beacuse it was hard, because I knew it would be, but rather for the quaitly of the case. I wanted to pack as much as I could in this tiny little tower and it turned to be awesome. Wanted it to be a awesome little gaming computer that was small and it turned out great. However it required a lot of modification to the case. Had to drill several holes just to be able to plug in hardware. The metal is a little to flimsy for my taste for the price I paid for it. Some screws were not milled correctly.
Yeah the psu is junk but you should never ever use a psu that comes with a case unless you're building the computer with low end parts for checking email or something to that nature. This build was so frustrating and took me 3 days to do(doing it properly and making it look good).
For others wanting to build in this make sure you have a high knowledge of building this is not for beginners. Also really important when picking out parts the gpu can not exceed 267mm in length and the cpu cooler cant exceed 76mm in heigth.
