Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Solid build with quiet airflow 07/13/2014

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: This is a solid low-end case with lots of great build touches. Feet on the bottom are molded solid. Bottom fan option. All USB 3.0. Filter on bottom. Window on side is perfect size and elevated an inch.

Cons: Long red power light may not suit everyone's taste. Very few cons other than not the prettiest case ever made.

Other Thoughts: Running an AMD 8350 in this case an it is exhausting hot air out the top to keep it around 60C when gaming.

Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Quiet, Fast, Long lasting fan. 07/13/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: Easy to install bracket is secured by four large nuts. Direct heat pipes. Quiet and long lasting.

Cons: Overhangs memory and key motherboard screws. Only go for this if you have a very hot CPU that is crying out for quiet fan and direct heat pipes.

Other Thoughts: Reduced my core temp on FX 8350 by 5C,. Fast cooling of liquid without the expense. Large fan helps cool north bridge and memory.

Intel Core i3-3240 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.4GHz LGA 1155 55W Desktop Processor                                                                                   Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637i33240
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bascially all you need to run most single threaded games on Linux or Windows. Four threads is nice but Haswell Pentium is a competitor on low-end expecially with Linux. Single threaded performance crushes AMD.

Cons: Although Haswell is newer this is far from last gen tech. X79 is all Ivy and current max on high-end.

Other Thoughts: Ivy Bridge is the high choice X79
