This review is from: Corsair CC-9011078-WW 750D Airflow Edition Black Computer Case
Pros: -Lots of room
-Great airflow, the 3 large 200mm fans that come with the case are quiet and move a ton of air.
-Great spacing for cable management, probably the easiest to close even with the backside unmanaged.
-HDD trays are set at bottom to allow better airflow, enough room for RAID setups, etc
-Four SSD Trays that are set at the backside of the case, displaying the front side of the SSD's, this should be standard on all new cases as it allows 6 platter drives and 4 ssd's to be installed without adapters.
-Asthetics are beautiful with this case, very clean looking, corsair did very well.
Cons: The front panel is plastic, not worth docking an egg over this is to keep weight down I'd assume as I've had cases that were full aluminum mid towers that weighed more than this thing.
Other Thoughts: Recommend to all builders and enthusiasts alike, corsair continues to deliver quality parts at a good price.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4GB Video Card (Require Min. 500W Power Supply)
Pros: - A powerhouse of a card, literally runs everything i am throwing at it under the sun and the frames never dip.
-This reference model uses the same cooler as the Titan, metal body encased and is beautiful to look at inside or out of the case, the green lighting on the side is nice if you have a clear side panel.
-Quiet, runs surprisingly cool when under load as well.
-will future proof you for at least another gen or two if you aren't doing anything too insane with it.
Cons: Price point is quite high for what i normally spend, definitely worth it but will put a dent in your wallet in a budget friendly build.
Other Thoughts: The 980 didn't seem worth it due to being almost $200 more, i normally go with MSI or other branded GPU's but this is the definite one to buy if you plan to buy a 970 go with this reference model it is great.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Beautiful overall cosmetic look, the style of an ultrabook but the power of a work horse, it is encased in a metal aluminum build thats nice to touch and pleasing to the eye.
-Amazing keyboard, responsive and feels nice to type on, the ability to customize the color of the lights and do it in layers is wonderful.
-Specs and overall design, this thing can handle any game i throw at it and still runs smooth, boot time is unbelievable, the included msi software has a build in boot profiler and network management, great for tech savvy individuals such as myself.
-Speakers are very decent more than what you would expect from a laptop this thin.
-Screen is beautiful, full HD, no dead pixels and looks great.
Cons: -Fans can get slightly loud when under heavy load from gaming and the temps go up fast, definitely buy a cooler for this beast, it is to be expected of a laptop this thin though so not a huge con at all.
-No optical drive, not a con really these days since everything can be downloaded but you will need an external if you choose to use disc media.
Other Thoughts: Purchased this laptop for $1400(discounted $400) as an "Open-Box", the laptop came packaged perfectly, the plastic still on the keyboard and top of the laptop, not a single scratch or fingerprint, it looks like someone opened the box then just sealed it without ever turning it on, a great deal for this laptop that i would have easily paid more for, the quality is amazing and it is well worth the price tag.READ FULL REVIEW
