Pros: Strong metal
Other Thoughts: I build a client a new computer in this case and it is probably the nicest case I have ever had the pleasure of working with. It seems like the chassis is very well thought out. All the holes to hide the wires are in the right places and the amount of fans you can fit in here is endless. The designers of this case have to be the best in the business. I liked it so much I'm ordering one for myself and swapping my components into it. Phanteks is my new go to case company.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Lots of issues with Bios and drivers
Other Thoughts: I installed 8gb of ram in this (2x4gb) The bios recognizes all 8gb but no matter what OS you install it will only see 3.46gb. I updated the BIOS and have the same issue. Also, try finding a wireless driver that works with windows 7. The driver on Lenovos website does not work and neither does the Bluetooth driver. Lenovo needs to get their act together.READ FULL REVIEW
Fast for the price
Runs very cool for a 125w processor
Other Thoughts: I bought this for a mid range build for myself. Paired with a Gigabyte 970A-UD3P, 16GB of EVGA Superclocked memory and a Cooler Master T4 CPU cooler I was able to overclock this to 5ghz and it runs very stable. It idles anywhere between 10 and 15 degrees Celsius after overclocking and goes up to a max temperature of around 60 degrees Celsius when doing any intensive tasks. All I changed was the multiplier in BIOS and upped the voltage to around 4.9 volts which seems to be the sweet spot for my processor. Upping the voltage to 5 volts made the CPU get a little too hot so I went back to 4.9 and it has been running stable for a few days now. I recommend this processor especially since it overclocks well.READ FULL REVIEW
