Pros: I had been looking at computer cases for several weeks and this one caught my eye. I built a new system last week using this case and it was truly a delight! The sand blasted aluminum is truly a great feature as it does in fact prohibit finger prints. The cable management was a breeze with the included Velcro straps on the back of the motherboard chassis. I am not a huge fan of windows but the way that Phanteks designed the side panel window is very well done! The bracket that fits over the PSU is very well thought out. I love that you can't see my PSU! This is a quality case that I would have easily purchased for $189 as I feel that is more in line with what this case should be going for with all the polish and added touches. The included tool box for the screws is just one more example of how well they thought out this case through.
Cons: I was a bit surprised to find that you can't turn off the included LED strip lighting. I personally think there should be a switch or an adjustment made to make it so that when you click through all the colors, you can have a setting that simply turns the LED lighting off completely.
Other Thoughts: I hope that Phanteks continues with producing well thought out cases. I would love to see an all Aluminum case produced by Phanteks. Either way, Phanteks is one of those companies that just upped the ante in terms of quality cases. I can easily put them ahead of several companies that have been doing computer cases for a long time. Antec and Cooler Master should be looking out! There is a new kid on the block and Phanteks is looking to shake things up!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works as described! Superb quality product. When holding it in my hands and observing all the intricate details, I can't help but feel extremely impressed with the craftsmanship. I have been using this memory for 4 months and have had zero issues with it. The XMP worked flawlessly on my Asus Maximus VI Hero motherboard.
Memory test ran 24+ hours and ZERO errors reported.
The heatsinks are simply amazing and the fact that you can take them off easily, depending on the configuration you have... is just another indicator of the awesome craftsmanship and forward thinking put into each stick.
Cons: The edges of the top of the heatsinks are rounded a bit but still sharp. Take great care when installing these memory sticks.
Other Thoughts: I would easily repeat the purchase of this memory kit if I had it to do over again. Superb product!
Keep up the good work GSkill. You are starting to put yourself in a class of your own.
Pros: I love this case! When the white cases first started coming onto the market, a couple years ago, I was on the fence... there were a couple I thought looked okay...
However, recently, I started looking for a new case to build a new gaming rig from. I looked at all the cases on Newegg and when I first stumbled on this white beauty, I was immediately pulled towards it. Of course, I quickly scoured the internet to find a more in depth look at the case which of course there is a lot of very good information out there about this case. So, it was an easy decision.
Building my new rig was a joy and this case made it easy! Now, I just wish there were more options in terms of white peripherals!!
Cons: I wish the USB panel was switched to the other side of the case... why on the right side????
Other Thoughts: The paint job is beautifully done! The paint has this hardened enamel type finish that would lead me to believe it was baked.
My wife says it looks like a Stormtrooper... LOL
