This review is from: Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Military Green Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: The Vengeance C70 case has heavy duty steel construction (even the front facade is metal), easy, almost completely tool-less design and Real PCI expansion slot covers (and not punch outs) which is harder to find on modern PC cases. This case has quality metal carrying handles that are mounted into the actual case and not into some plastic bracket that will just break later like many cases. The whole case got this great visual ascetic, the Power and Reset buttons help with that military feel. The case also has large holes with rubber gormmets for all your cable routing needs. And having all black screws coming standard with the case makes the whole case feel more "tactical". I also want to point out this case does great for cooling with plenty of room for fans (depending how you implement your cooling)
Cons: The 2 water cooler holes are punch outs and not replaceable covers or include rubber grommets which is not a deal breaker for my as I am not using a custom liquid cooling system) The stock fans although not awful do leave plenty to be desired. The power button, although looks cool does feel a bit mushy, and the white light behind the button can be distracting. I wish they had a red LED instead of a white LED for the power button or make the power button out of red plastic instead of white plastic with some paint on the front. But none of this is bad enough I would remove a Egg from the final rating.
Other Thoughts: Since I got the military green version of the case and I wanted matching colors for my Bluray drive and Flash card reader. I ended up painting the Drive face plates with some matte finish Olive Drab spray paint.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Enermax T.B.SILENCE 120MM Blue LED Twister Case Fan
Pros: Does its job, I can barely hear it. And that is putting my ear right next to the fan to hear the air blowing it self.
Cons: It can't make me a sandwich.
Other Thoughts: Other reviewers say the blades pop off, but I don't see how without breaking the thing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RFT-120 - 120mm Fan Filter
Pros: Does its job of filtering dust and dirt.
I can get away with washing the foam filter (separate from the fan) with water (allow to dry before re-installing),
Cons: after two years and repeated cleaning, the foam filter is starting to get ragged on the edges.
Other Thoughts: Only really works on fans blowing into the case.READ FULL REVIEW
