Pros: It's a Cooler Master....
Cons: I've installed this cooler on three different systems and have not had good results on any of them. My Hyper 212 actually has better performance. I've "retired" it to the least clockable rig (yes, I DO overclock) where it can do it's mediocre thing without me worrying about over-heating!
Other Thoughts: In my opinion this cooler would probably work great mounted in an upright position so the liquid can travel back down to the base plate like it's supposed too. Haven't tested this theory, as all my cases are upright which makes the cooler lay on it's side. Does CM know this?????READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to overclock, running 1,117 mhz @ 79C on air, and still haven't maxed. Running F@H 24/7 with no issues so far...
Easy to install, top mount power plugs is a big help in a narrow case like mine (Gigabyte GZ-F4).
Cons: Asus OC software is a joke.....
Other Thoughts: Run this with MSI AfterBurner and overclocking is a breeze!
Make sure it's got plenty of power! I'm running a Corsair VX550W with no problems at all.
This review is from: GIGABYTE GZ-F4HEB Black 0.5mm Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: This ain't a bad case at all, especially for the price. A little imagination, some snips, and a pice of plexi and you've got a full view case. Grill fan on the top with a 100mm fan and two in the side, leaving the bottom vents, and you've got great ventiliation. I think these are actually brand new and not refurbished, as others have noted. I'm fixin' ta buy another one!
Cons: Be careful mounting the mobo stand-offs, as they are easy to strip. If that happens hold a ballpeen hammer (rounded end) against the back where the punchouts are and tap it on the inside with a flat face hammer. This'll knock the little barbs back down enough to set the stand-off.
Other Thoughts: It's also quite easy to mount e-Sata ports on the front at the bottom. One must be carefull cutting the slot in the plastic. I used a dremel with a cut-off wheel and "cleaned" the hole up with a small file and a jeweler's torch (from the back).READ FULL REVIEW
