Other Thoughts: Simple and works well. I don't have the fastest internet ever(20mbps), but it keeps it close to that speed. Haven't had a drop in signal or driver problems like my laptop. Its good for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Supports up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, comes with Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan
Pros: -Plenty of fans that run pretty quietly
-Its very large and has room for all your computer components and airflow
-Design is sleek, modern, but not over the top. Brush metallic control panel.
-Good clips to hold hard drives in place
-Nice cable management for me
-Bang for your buck
Cons: Slight annoyances
-The Thor name lighting is not working (don't know which plug I may be missing). Contacted Rosewill, no response.
-The fins up top have a really cheap feeling slider button
-Somewhat annoying case doors, takes a little jiggling to slide them in right.
Other Thoughts: I love the look of this beast and the fins up top are pretty cool looking. The most comparable one is the brand that markets master high airflow, but this is a nicer alternative to me because I don't need windows on my case nor cheesy logo branding and indents. Newegg pictures do no justice and i thought it was ugly at first, but I researched it a bit online and it actually looks very impressive. It's large and intimidating, but I love it. One of the few cases that looks good when it's turned off. Would be drooling over it if they made it into brushed aluminum metal case. Its hard to not give it 4+ eggs because of its price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -No issues once running
-Maintains a steady temperature
-power button on mb is convenient when testing
Cons: -Had a problem with getting the RAM to sit in, somewhat of a pain clip design. Had to take it a professional computer repairer to make sure I wasn't going to smash the RAM into the wrong place.
-Not very novice builder friendly (manual is junk and explanation of the BIOS settings for OC is worthless -I'm disappointed because I thought this MB would make OC easy)
-Needs more fan controls
-fatality branding is extremely excessive
Other Thoughts: This is my first gaming computer build and everything is very different from MB a couple years ago. The Ram clips were annoying, being a noob that I am I'm used to being able to push down on both slides and locking the ram in. Very annoying to say the least. The Sata plug ins have to be in specific ones and I had a hard time getting to it because of my video card was over them (but the GPU is required to be over a certain pci express slot). I mean this is a gaming branded MB, so I thought they would something like that figured out. I also have a case with a lot of fans, but there are not enough plugs in for that. It does have plenty of inputs for all your accessories though and once working it is great. I think the F-stream tuning for OC is a great idea, but I haven't used it yet and the new BIOS is so much easier to use. My largest complaint is that the fatality branding is too excessive, you will see his face when your computer starts and in the BIOS. It's pretty annoying.READ FULL REVIEW
