Pros: For when your old computer fails, you have to pull out the hard drive (that still works), plug it in and salvage the data. This is a very handy tool to have around. Also for those dirty old extra SATA drives lying around, for extra storage. Semi Portable and really easy to use, literally plug in as any other external drive and it is ready to go. You can even hotswap to other HDDs while it's turned on.
Cons: Very fragile. Do not drop in water, step on, or even drop, it will break. Not so much of a problem with me though.
Other Thoughts: Still haven't found USB 3.0 very much useful, that is just my opinion though.READ FULL REVIEW
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.
