Pros: Looks! Seriously I think this is the most stylish yet CLEAN looking mid tower out there. I see good looking cases only to have a mini side window. Whats the point? This thing has a very nice window thats large enough to see all those components. Top mounts work great with my Corsair H100i radiator and push fans underneath it. I doubt a 280mm would fit, so be careful!
I love how all the hard drive/ssd cages can be taken out completely so that there is nothing obstructing the big front fan to blow as much air as possible to the graphics card.
Cons: The front panel should have been given much more thought. Specifically the air filter shouldn't be so hard to take out to clean. CM should've taken a page from Corsair and made a grill that pops out to access it.
Also I had to modify my new Red Megaflow 200mm fan by cutting out the plastic tabs that don't get used to mount the fan since the front panel's plastic clips interfere with them when locking on and causes the frame of the fan to flex and preventing the blades from spinning. No joke! You WILL HAVE THIS PROBLEM if you do this swap unless you bend and cut off those other tabs of the fan
Like other reviews, the Seidon cooler is mostly garbage and pump is loud.
Other Thoughts: Didn't get rubber grommets, but no bid deal. Would've been nice though.
I wanted something smaller after years of using my Antec1200 full tower. This thing fit the bill perfectly and is just the right size. Its wider than most cases so it doesn't have to be as tall. Got this along with the Asus z87 Hero mobo, i5-4670k w/ Corsair H100i, gskill sniper 8gb 1866, nzxt 850w, Enermax t.b. silence red led 120mm (for the back fan), red Megaflow up front...All I can say is that I'm in black & red heaven. Case is very easy to work with for cable management.
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance M65 Green 8 Buttons USB Wired Laser 8200 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: BY FAR best build quality out of any mouse ever made; soft upper, and grippier sides are awesome. Sniper button was placed perfectly for my large hands in palm grip. Excellent tracking performance, and software was really easy to use. Heavy, just how I like it.
Cons: Comfort! After a little while playing BF3, my palm started hurting. See below.
Right and Left mouse clicks are soft yet firm, but still not as tactile as I wanted (prefer the stiffer clicks like on the Storm Sentinel, maybe I'm just used to that now).
Other Thoughts: RMA.
I reaaaaalllly wanted to love this mouse since I got it mainly for the thumb sniper button to instantly switch to low dpi in BF3 when in the tank/chopper gunner positions, and I had done extensive research on all mice to replace my 2 yr old CM sentinel advance. The back part of the mouse (where the Corsair logo is at) is cut out from the aluminum frame, and after a while of gaming this makes it un-ergonomic if you use a palm grip. The bottom of my palm-thumb area started to hurt. THIS MAY NOT BE A PROBLEM FOR ALL, but it was for me. I wish Corsair would have just rounded out the mouse fully at the back like all the other mice out there, and it would've been perfection. For now I'm going back to my trusty CM mouse.
Pros: Flashed it to 6970 bios, ran perfectly stable at stock clocks of 880/1375 and 1.1v... I now have it stable at 920/1400 at 1.15v, gonna keep pushing higher .... Plays Crysis Warhead maxed out on enthusiast settings at 1920x1080 and get around 45fps while not going over 70C, BFBC2 maxed out gets around 55fps, idles at 39C .... Red and black colors goes perfectly with my case theme.... The fan noise level is not really a problem since my other case fans are turned up when I'm gaming anyway.... I just love this card!
Cons: Some day, these things will make breakfast for us, but not yet. Packaging was definitely on the dull/cheap side compared to the glamor of other brands, but hey that's just to fill this section up.
Other Thoughts: At such an unbelievably low price, I just had to sell my gtx470 and jump on this beast of beasts ... Long? I was actually expecting something longer, I think its only a tad bit longer than my former card and I can still fit it with ease... then again I have an Antec 1200 case with no hard drives in front of the card ... Running this with MSI afterburner with user fan profiles and overclock settings is a dream. I was a little iffy choosing PowerColor at first, but I'm completely satisfied with this product.READ FULL REVIEW
