Pros: Plenty of connections, when it works it does what its supposed to.
Cons: WOW. For about a year, everything was working fine. After a year I started to get the infinite boot loop, tested my components, took everything apart and sent in the motherboard. It came back repaired. Everything worked fine for about 4 months. Now it will power on, won't post, and all the phase LEDs remain lit. Had the motherboard tested, guess what, its the motherboard, again. Having these things done aren't free, and Gigabytes customer support solution was get another RMA and pay to have it shipped to us. Again. Thanks Gigabyte!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this case from a Thermaltake clearance sale for 50 dollars. Easily worth it. The fans are quiet (But fan noise doesn't really bother me at all). I like the easy of setup and the same I had to work it. I was worried about cable management, but it turned out to be a breeze. The front panel connectors can easily be pulled back and zip-tied, theres enough room to run the connector to the top fan behind the motherboard tray (I had reposition the fan for that). I didn't intend to use the hot swap tray (the door gets stuck, no biggie) so the wiring for that was put in that bay, and there was plenty of room for extra cable in the bottom bay, allowing for great airflow. 12 inch cards fit with ease. Also, another thing (this may be a revision on all of them) but there were some complaints about how the hole for mounting the CPU cooler back plate was off center. That was not an issue with the AMD version. its right on the money.
I'd have to TRY to find something bad to say about this cas
Cons: I tried my best. Probably all I can say is the instructions leave alot to be desired. But has there ever been a case that has come with good instructions?
Other Thoughts: The build was so easy, I recommended this case to my brother, and he's sold on it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Pros: Ordered this cooler as its an easy install and I hate messing around with thermal compound. (Its been 6 or so years since I've built anything, so I was a little shy about it). Installing the back plate and the pump were an absolute breeze. Before that I had some issues I'll get to. I have an i7 2700k. I don't overlock, and at idle I sit in the mid to high 20s and under 100 percent load I'm in the low to mid 40s. I think thats more than acceptable.
Cons: There are two issues I take with my cooler. And both are flukes which is why I only knocked 1 egg off. The first was the screws that were shipped with it would not fit into the holes provided. The screws to the radiator would not fit. They would start, and then stop. I looked to make sure the fins were not in the way. Luckily I had some screws that were a little shorter and of a similar enough thread they could be used to keep the fan/radiator attached snugly to the case. But still.
Second issue, and this is frustrating as heck. There apparently has been a nagging issue with these systems and an odd noise from the pump itself. The unit still functions properly, and the noise isn't that terrible (its intermittent), but it makes me fear for the longevity of the unit.
Other Thoughts: The idea behind the unit and what I can assume is the intended execution is very solid. I just happened to be one of the poor suckers who got bad screws/ screw holes and one of the loud pumps. Sucks to be me, I suppose.READ FULL REVIEW
