Pros: Good looking, plenty of room, comes with 5 installed quiet fans. Has very good cable management and not too many ODD slots.
Cons: Out of the 5 installed fans, only 1 came with a motherboard header. All the rest are molex connectors.
Other Thoughts: The fan connectors were the only fault I found with this case.
It's a great case otherwise.
Pros: The speed increase is fantastic! During install, I ran into problems with my PC that I didn't know were present. First I get an error message installing the software (msi.exe) which wound up pointing to missing windows system files(thanks OCZ tech support). Seems oxidation had reared it's ugly head on some of my connectors. So I reinstalled Windows on a new HDD & voila, it works.(had to clean all exposed connectors tho). Now the drive is only limited by my mobo's southbridge, an AMD 790 SATAII.
Cons: Typing in the serial # every time something goes wrong,&, the software is for Win7 only.
Other Thoughts: WEI scored it at 5.9 until I upped my ram from 1333- 1600.WEI then gave it a 6.3. Windows only tests transfer speeds tho.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tomshardware charts has this listed as the 2nd fastest consumer HDD ,only beaten by WD's 1TB Velocoraptor 10k rpm drive. This costs 33% of what u would pay for a raptor. I have this paired with a cache drive from OCZ, & only my sata11 southbridge (AMD 790) is holding this combo back.
Other Thoughts: WEI only tests the transfer speeds of a system drive- mine was 5.9 even with the cache drive installed. I OCed my ram( Gskill Ares) from 1333mhz- 1600mhz WEI went up to 6.3. Without the cache drive this wouldn't happen. If anyone knows why feel free to comment.READ FULL REVIEW
