Pros: None. Wish I could give it -3 stars for all the aggravation this unit has caused.
Cons: I purchased one of these through Newegg and upon updating it the unit bricked contacted Ceton did all their steps they had me send it back to Newegg for new unit. Second unit updated as it should worked for a couple weeks the unit got unplugged accidentally while a show was on unit is now bricked. These things are junk Ceton will try to help you recover the unit but I have tried this process twice now and neither time it worked. I have contacted them about an RMA for this unit because it is still practically brand new and I have not gotten a reply it has been two days. Any other questions and you get a prompt reply but when you ask them to stand behind their product nothing. Learn from my mistakes looks good on paper but it is junk.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fractal Design Node 605 Black Aluminum/Steel ATX HTPC/Media Center Computer Case
Pros: This case replaced a Lian-Li HTPC case that I had I needed to go with something shorter than what I had for a new TV stand. Comparing this to the Lian-Li both are exceptional cases. The Lian-Li gets the edge on layout and aesthetics while I would give the Fractal case the edge on build quality. The Fractal case I did not have any stripped out screw holes as I did with the Lian-Li out of the box. Also thought it was nice that the Fractal case has a noise cancelling coating on the underside of the case top cover. Makes the HTPC really quiet.
Cons: Compared to the Lian-Li I feel like the hard drive trays are a little flimsy. The drives are suspended next to each other and while in the frames they can wiggle and bump against each other when putting in or removing them from the case.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great case with a wonderful design. I would recommend this case to someone looking to build an HTPC.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS8900 Quiet 110mm Ultra Quiet Slim CPU Cooler
Pros: I have no doubt in this things ability to keep my A10-5800K cool. I had an Arctic Pro cooler that more than did the job but I needed to switch to a low profile case. This thing is huge with that said it is low profile enough to fit in my case. Installation was a little tricky it does require a little more work than some of the other brand of coolers on the market. That said it is more than capable of cooling my cpu this is being used in a Fractal HTPC case and it is quiet.
Cons: Before ordering I would definitely look over the size and double check your motherboard to make sure it will work for your needs.
Other Thoughts: Overall I am very happy with my purchase it is definitely a high quality product capable of meeting most peoples cooling needs.READ FULL REVIEW
