Pros: Revisiting this review years later.
Bought this over 8 years ago for my first gaming rig. I couldn't believe how cool it kept everything, I'm not a huge fan of liquid cooling yet. Quiet, sleek design, and sturdy. It can house ANYTHING within it, I was running two Gtx 280s with room to spare, and plenty of cooling to go around. Really is worth the money! I don't intend to ever part with it until I absolutely must. Drive mounting is a sinch, and makes everything flow better.
Cons: Its big, but you know that you're getting a full case. Sometimes it can be a little irritating finding a place to put it. Also the price, even though I bought this (not the EXACT same model, its tweaked slightly over the years, but its the same case) over 4 years ago it is still very pricey. Also my model doesn't have USB3 so its a shame.
Other Thoughts: I intend to use this case again for my next gaming/professional rig. Its never let me down, If mines still around after 8 years, yours will be too.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: Feels solid. Very quiet, I can barely hear it running. Looks great.
Cons: Mine doesn't seem to work as good as the stock cooler that came with my FX-8350. And this absolutely baffles me. It actually runs so poorly that I had to take the very slight overclock off that I had running on the stock fan.
Other Thoughts: I love cooler master but I was really sad to see this perform so poorly. I reinstalled it twice to make sure everything was on just right. And checked fan speeds to make sure it was running correct. I don't know why mine is so bad. At least its quiet, I just cant use the computer for intense use anymore. I will be replacing for the loud stock cooler so It runs better. I don't want to pay to send this one back so I guess I'm stuck with it. I may try and put it in something that won't be under much load. That said I still trust the CM name, I just cannot recommend this particular cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT GAMMA Classic Series GAMA-001BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Not your average rectangular cheapo case
Cons: Front audio and USB ports are a bit wiggly
Other Thoughts: All in all I'm extremely impressed with what I got. I got this case to put together a cheap computer out of old parts I had lai\ying around. when I pulled it out of the box It felt firm, didn't feel very cheap at all. And I must admit the front didn't look half bad. Everything fit together firmly, front blue LED looked very nice. I would definetly pick this up again!READ FULL REVIEW
