Pros: Usually when going small, you have to sacrifice some. But this case does away with most of that. I was able to fit a full EVGA GeForce GTX 780 in here, with only a little bit of a struggle, but that was the mobo's fault. I was also able to fit an h100i and a cd drive. The case stays nice and cool, and is built fairly well for the price.
Oh, and the fact that this case has filters for every fan except for the rear outtake fan is awesome.
Cons: The harddrive trays are a bit flimsy, but nothing too devastating. The cd drive tray was really hard to fit in after all of the wiring, I think I even broke part of the lock just fiting it back in. In addition, wire management is very poor, I'm not sure what else I could have done to make the wiring neater.
Other Thoughts: All said and done, when going small this case works excellently. While I do recommend that everybody do a mid-full tower case build, if spacing is an issue like it is for me, this case is a great way to go.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: If you're looking to plop an i5-4670k into a mini-ITX motherboard, this is not a bad choice. The BIOS is really nice looking and the board delivers solid performance. The sound card is really impressive, making the utility of this board almost pay for itself.
Cons: A few things
1) the IO shield is HORRENDOUS. I really don't understand why they had to make the shield covered in that anti-static material, it just makes it a pain to work with.
2) The WIFI card is garbage. It is an angry process of trying to get it into the case and have the wire secure in the IO bracket. Not only that, but it doesn't work properly. When I first installed it I got some serious lag on games like CS:GO, TF2 and LoL. I didn't think anything of it. But now I'm having connection issues with it, it fails to even pick up routers sometimes. Even when it does connect to my router, I'm having trouble loading Youtube videos and accessing facebook. I'm going to have to purchase a USB wifi adapter now, and I thought I wasn't to have to do this.
3) The board itself is kinda hard to work with. I don't know why, but it was hard to install in my case (Corsair 250D). This might have been the cases fault, but the IO shield made the process so much more aggravating.
Other Thoughts: The board has amazing potential, but fails on some levels.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Well, what can I say besides what's in their name. THESE THINGS ARE QUIET. I can hear myself breath over the sound of these fans. They also keep my case really cool, which is important for a build using the small Corsair 250D case. They're perfect fans for putting on my h100i radiator, and the different colored rings go nicely for any color scheme.
Cons: A little bit bulky? Does that even count as a con? These fans are great.READ FULL REVIEW
