-Great price to feature ratio
-Dead silent fan
-Nice matte-black color
Cons: Well I asked it to bake me some cookies and it just sat there, so...
Other Thoughts: I am in love with the flat-cable design, and this PSU rocks it beautifully. Routing cables was a breeze, it powered on easily, fit perfectly into an NZXT Source 210 without any fitting issues at all. This PSU is basically the lord and savior of power supplies.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black SECC Steel, ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Plenty of room for cable management
Comes with lots of cable ties and places to tie cables down
Lots of room for fans
Nice, large side window
Solid, even black color
Motherboard tray cutout for aftermarket CPU cooling
Cons: Side window scratches somewhat easily
HDD bays are not removable and not facing sideways. I knew this going in, and it's not a big deal to me, but if you're rocking something ridiculously long, this case may not be for you.
No grommets on cable management holes. Again, I knew this going in, and it's not that big of a con.
Overall, just a couple of simple things that aren't worth docking an egg.
Other Thoughts: I was able to fit a 120mm rad in here with a full ATX motherboard and the NZXT Hue lighting kit without any problem. Definitely worth buying, and will almost definitely end up purchasing again for another system.

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes
Pros: I have this on an i5-3570K @ 4.2GHz. The temps are phenomenal.
After 3 hours of BF3 at Max settings: 57C MAX.
Also, it's dead silent. Even during gaming I don't hear any sound increase whatsoever.
Cons: It's huge. I know there's bigger, but this thing is pretty big. Make sure there's enough room between your board and the other side of your case!
Other Thoughts: My build:
Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4.2GHz
