This review is from: IN WIN Dragon Rider Black 1.0 - 0.8mm SECC Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Beautiful but masculine- sweet lines.
Many fans- my mouse hand gets cold next to it on my desk from the airflow.
The lights are all pretty sweet.
Many bays - far more than I need.
Matches my board and RAM -black/blue schema.
Sturdy and stable- plus it has swing feet for added stability.
Cons: Friends drool on it.
I would take a quarter of an egg--for the mod below.
Other Thoughts: With a CM Hyper 212, I couldn't fully latch the side without the fan hitting the copper pipe's end. This contradicted all reviews I looked up stating it has plenty of space for such equipment... Maybe it had something to do with the ASUS P8Z68-V/Gen 3? I dunno.
I flattened the grate where the big fan mounts (used cardboard to protect the finish and a tack hammer on a flat surface) and it fits together perfectly. No one can tell it had to be flattened, and it took all of 5 minutes, so no big deal.
Pros: Quiet. Inexpensive. Great reviews.
Looked cool (matched my black and blue color scheme).
...great return policy.
Cons: Unfortunately, it died after a week.
Other Thoughts: Life is too short for second chances in business.
Switched to Corsair; it has not disappointed. No hard feelings with PCPC; just no second chances.
The was the first and only NEW PSU to ever X_X out on me...so this was probably an isolated incidence. If I saw a killer deal on one, I'd probably chance it again.
Pros: Look for an expert's opinion!
I built the machine and it is awesome. I shy away from OC because my first attempt cooked the PSU. Since swapping brands, it runs awesomely.
The chip OCd great.
Other Thoughts: I'm afraid to OC again...I can't afford to keep swapping PSUs. Fortunately, I doubt I would notice a difference because this machine is 98% gaming only. I rarely multitask. All games run at max settings. No hiccups.READ FULL REVIEW
