This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 400R Graphite grey and black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Pros: -Fan customization. Tons of space for fans. Front 2 120mm fans are white LED.
-Lots of room. Fit a very large ASUS 7950 in it with room to spare.
-Also mounted a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Pro in place of the rear exhaust fan, fit perfectly.
Cons: -Shows fingerprints, not really a con, but be aware of this when building.
-Front grate collected dust fairly quickly.
-Sides of the case bow out a little bit, with even more places for fans, like it needs anymore.
-Vibrations from the fans, might be my fault, but they are slightly annoying.
Other Thoughts: I have had this case for about 3 months now, and have noticed quite a few things. First off, do NOT, unless you enjoy the sounds of a 747 taking off, max out the fans. I made the mistake of putting an extra 4 fans in the case, and I could hear the noise through sound cancelling headphones.
Fingerprints. As I said before, they show up very easily. Beware when building with this case.
It was quite easy to build in. Got it for my son's first build and it worked perfectly. Not a quiet case by any stretch of the imagination, and some parts (HDD cage mainly) felt a little cheap, but all in all, it's a pretty average case.
Pros: Fast Processor
Great for Multitasking
Cons: Had problems with stock cooler
Other Thoughts: I love this processor. Paired with a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Pro cooler, my temps rarely exceed 50 C under full load. I use this processor for gaming primarily, and it runs games like Battlefield 4 (which I play the most) on Max with 16X MSAA without a problem. Great budget processor.READ FULL REVIEW
