This review is from: Thermaltake NiC C4 (CLP0607) 120mm CPU Cooler
Pros: The size is just perfect, absolutely no problems whatsoever in my case, which is an ultra wide Thermaltake Chaser A41, same brand, which is exactly why I picked it and I was right, pretty much made for each other. Quite possibly the easiest cooler to install out there, AND it comes with a second fan by default. The shroud keeps the heat away from your other components. Does not block any ram slots if you have a full sized atx motherboard.
Cons: Mounting screws need to be a little bit longer at least. Other than that nothing else much.
Other Thoughts: Be mindful that your computer case is wide enough.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this to replace an old broken case that I was using temporarily, it has more than enough space plus excellent cable management, so don't worry about buying an expensive modular PSU. Drive bays are excellent and tool-less and you can hold a drive with just a couple screws. Cooling is excellent, this case will drop all your temperatures, its like a mini refrigerator. Easy to install optical drives without much cable clutter, if any at all, in fact most cables are not visible and out of the way.
Cons: 1) Be careful your PSU's ATX Power (EATX 12V) 8 pin connector is long enough on your PSU, or else you will need an extension...I didn't need one because the 4-pin one was able to reach that spot, and it works.
2) The USB 3.0 cable is long and thick, and not very flexible at all, I ended up not connecting it because it would get in the way of everything else. My motherboard has plenty of USB 3.0 already anyway.
Other Thoughts: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
AMD FX-8350 CPU/Cooler Master CPU cooler
16GB Corsair XMS3 (2x8gb)
AMD HD7770 x 2 in Crossfire Mode
Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D 5.1
ASUS PCE-AC68 network adapter
ASUS all in one blu ray disc reader drive
Rosewill card reader
Ultra LSP 750 Watt PSU.
All fit in this case, no problem.
Pros: Many people still do not understand the importance of having a surge protector. Surges are the primary killer of RAM, most of the time the ram will not be damaged, it will actually be the motherboard itself. Although you may not see them, surges happen every day, for any reason because electricity fluctuates. It is best to keep your computer connected to a surge protector at all times and ,if you can, get a power conditioner. All your components should be in working order as when you first put your computer together. Also DO NOT update the BIOS your motherboard shipped with, unless you have good reason too, I see little reason to update any BIOS at all. With that said, my review of this RAM: This is a very good kit and I would recommend it for most any motherboard that is AM3, AM3+ or FM2, would not recommend it for servers though. should work even if it's not listed in the manual.
Cons: Could use a more robust heat spreader.READ FULL REVIEW
