Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: this case has a top fan! if it didnt, all the heat would rise and melt my case!

Cons: heat rises! call the president! i am 6 feet tall. i am so tall that i normally run a fever and my feet are cold!

Other Thoughts: no seriously heat doesnt have time to rise when you have several fans running. only stagnant heat will rise. can you imagine your living room with 3 or 4 giant fans intaking air from outdoors on one side and 2 or 3 giant fans on the other side exhausting air out? if you compared that (TO SCALE) to your computer case it would likely blow you through the room into the exhaust fans and chop you up. its generally warmer on upper levels of a building due to (STACK EFFECT) now why is it colder on top of a mountain??? just buy the antec 1200 already. lol

Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: fastest hdd you can get your hands on

Cons: capable of about half the read/write speed of an ssd.

Other Thoughts: i own the raptor 160 and the raptor 600. i dont remember what i paid for the 160, but the 600 was $230 a few years ago. i use these in my antec 1200 (along side my 840 pro) for music/movies. these raptor drives are easily the best hdd in existence but just cant touch an ssd. as far as reliability, i must be lucky. in the past few years ive purchased these raptors, 840pro, kingston hyper x, wd blue 1tb, seagate barracuda 1tb. all drives still work good. i would love to buy 2 of these raptor 1000's to run in raid 10, as that would be amazing, but i have a hard time justifing the cost. given the cost of this drive and dependant on your setup, better off getting the 840 pro with a wd blue for storage. dont really need blazing fast speed for music, movies, and backup. either way ssd's are the future, the only moving parts in a pc should be fans.

Rosewill 120mm Computer Case Fan (Case Cooling Fan) - Transparent Frame & Blue LEDs, 2-Ball Bearing, Silent Fan, 2 Rotation Speed with PWM Control; RFX-120BL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: works great, i have 9 of these in my case and all work perfectly! nice led's. highly recommend! nice braided wire.

Cons: none really. i have 9 of these in my case. 4 of which are setup for push-pull on 240rad. great airflow. yes of course they are slightly loud at full speed, thats because they move a good amount of air. i havn't even tried the included controler, as i have them all hooked to my 6 channel sunbeam(some are on splitters)

Other Thoughts: i took the time to lube all of these fans with machine oil and it made no difference. this tells me that these awesome 2 ball bearing fans are lubed very well at the factory. when i do another personal/friend/family build, i will absolutely buy more of these. also my sunbeam fan controler has blue l.e.d. knobs that match the fans. rosewill lightning psu matches, msi 780 lightning matches. my g-skill trident x ram blue led fan has a slightly darker almost purple color. just f.y.i. and yes my pc looks like a glowing light show.
