This review is from: Thermaltake Chaser A71 VP400M1W2N Black SECC ATX Full Tower Case
Pros: Great looking and good build quality
Attractive side steel side panels
Lots of space
Great air flow.
Cons: The top 200mm fan slot DOES NOT work with Bitfenix Spectre Pro LED fans. (See other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: I bought this case as an upgrade from my $50 Thermaltake Commander MS-I. The case is of much higher quality, it is much more attractive, and is a lot larger. The extra space helped drop my GPU idle temperature 5 C.
The only problem I have had thus far is with the top fan mount. I picked up 5 Bitfenix Red Led fans to replace the stock fans. Once I mounted the fan in the proper holes the top cover wouldn't go on, I took a look and the Bitfenix fan was covering one of the holes for the top cover to snap back into. I tried the other 6 mounting spots on the bitfenix fan in various holes on the top of the case, I found a spot that allowed no holes to be covered however only 2 screws could be installed, the issue with this is the fan gets stuck and won't spin up. Do yourself a favor if you buy this case, buy thermaltake luna fans if you are going to replace the stock ones.
Cons: -Doesn't come with a software disk, however it is easy to install the drivers off the gigabyte website.
-Right handed mouse (See other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: I got the mouse the other day and I am rather impressed so far. The mouse is comfortable after long hours and is a perfect weight and size for my taste. The mouse has lots of great features for a mouse of its price and is the first non-basic mouse I have owned. It even comes with a case to move it around in, it is a similar case material of a glasses case. To wrap up the cord is a good length not too long, but long enough to reach some distance, the ergonomics on it are completely right handed (this doesn't affect me since I am right handed), and the DPI profiles allow me to switch between my gaming and browsing sensitivities with ease, the only thing I wished for was adjustable color on the led's however the mouse was $30 so it wasn't expected.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Powers my system
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I bought the 500W to power my Asus GTX 650 TI, it does the job great for almost a year now. The cables reach very far distances which is nice to see.READ FULL REVIEW
