Pros: Looks sharp, wish more cases were designed with the snow white/blue/black color scheme.
Has plenty of locations for cable routing and easy access to the CPU mount for the motherboard.
internal case temp is only 1c over ambient with an additional side fan added.
Cons: The cables for the front panel switch/lights etc. is too short, half inch shorter and I'd have been in trouble.
Grating for the fans obstructs too much air for the additional fan I added causing a high pitched whine, had to cut the grating out to fix the sound.
Other Thoughts: The additional fan I'm using is a very high CFM albeit nearly silent by it's self fan.
Otherwise it's the best looking case IMO that I've been able to find.

OC's like a champ
Haven't had an issue yet.
Simple to use BIOS
Windows hardware tuner software that works perfectly.
Cons: None to speak of
Other Thoughts: The free ram offer that's apparently been going on forever now is good ram, but keep in mind the stuff operates at a lower voltage and may not be compatible with most other ram.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great GPU. Plenty quick for pretty much every game I play.
Cons: Bought nVidia specifically for 3D support on my Sammy 7 series active 3D set, pretty angry that they actually charge to unlock the feature in their drivers. My G53 laptop's drivers have it unlocked for free so I didn't expect it to cost extra. That's pretty deceptive. And the cost, $40, is like a kick in the nuts for buying their product.
Other Thoughts: So I'm not using the 3D feature, while money is not the issue, I just won't buy it out of principle, I even would have paid extra for the GPU knowing that it had 3D support, but I'm not going to pay for a key and deal with their SecuRom-like process. That was my main buying decision over AMD, and I may not buy nVidia next time because of this. I'll just have to keep using my laptop whenever I want to watch something in 3D.
Still otherwise a great product.
Runs everything I've thrown at it pretty smooth in 1080P with AA, graphics quality is stunning compared to the 460m I've been using for the past few years.
