Pros: Size: Not too big, not to small
Slots: Plenty of HDD, nice aesthetically pleasing location of SSD points; mine are Seagates that are black and white so it matches the theme perfectly.
Fans: Air flow is awesome, and for stock case fans pretty dang quiet as well.
PSU tray: Great concept idea, easily hides both your power supply as well as any cords that come with it in case you don't have a modular cable management system (such as myself)
Lights: the NZXT lights up on the PSU tray, as well as the light on the back of the chasse where the I/O for audio and all that other jazz it, great feature.
Easy to pop off the front and top outer-most panels, and then just as easily pops right back on
Cons: Jeez there isn't really any, except for one that threw me for a loop. It's such a blatantly obvious one that I completely over-looked it and it almost shot me over.
There's no optical expansion,...
I had to install my mobo software.. via cd
my internet wireless drivers ... via cd
my new operating system.. via cd
my new anti-virus ... via cd
But nowhere to place an optical drive. Luckily I had a way to hook up my old one to get the information on it, but it's just the inconvenience that almost messed me up.
Aside from that, it's a pretty awesome case
Other Thoughts: Getting a dark, or close to black mobo, with white cabling sets off the white and black theme quite nice.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Ability (what else should there be?)
I have an FX-6300 that I've overclocked to 4.4GHz on this cooler and it's staying stable at around 50-52c
Cons: In a smaller case it might get a bit cramped, but that's why they list dimensions ;)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Mid - lower end 700 series card. I did quite a bit of research of price to performance ratios and how much bang I could get for my buck so I went with this card specifically. With windows 8.1, this 760, and my fx-6300 (OC'd to 4.4GHz on air) I'm running battlefield 53-70 fps consistently (without the card OC'd)
I have also overclocked this card to +100mhz core, and +450 (with +5 on afterburners voltage increase) to a very impressive card. It does run pretty warm though at that point at around 83c. I thought that was a bit too warm and thought that since it was already the OC edition that it was being a bit stressed; I turned the GPU back to stock and it still ran 79-81c under full load. That said I run it between those settings for a few FPS here and there increase.
Overall very solid card, and when SLI'd ya don't need a 780 or a 780ti for that matter.
Cons: Con's, it's the only con I have currently, but I still feel the need to add it because of the egg knock.
At first everything was pretty, gaming and aesthetics, however, about 3 months after getting the card it's starting to ... and there isnt' too much better of an explination than "droop" in the case off the MOBO. It holds firm where you tighten the screws to the chasse, but the end that is farthest away (need HDD drive bays on most cases) it pulls downward because of the weight. I like MSI, and have owned a msi 680 before that I loved, but this looks pretty sloppy in a build I'm trying to make as aesthetically pleasing as I can.
Other Thoughts: Another thought is... I'm concerned how it will work out if I decide to get another 760 and SLI them, will I have to make some sort of makeshift brace for both cards? Will the top card push on the bottom one? Who's to know until I spend the 250 on another card, and that's quite a bit to gamble with.READ FULL REVIEW
