Pros: Great card that does everything i need it to, The cuda proccessing is well beyond my last 660 gtx
Cons: This is a longest card I've ever had (longer even then the EVGA 9800 GTX)
I actually had to re-position a couple HDDs and bend part of my hdd rack with some pliers case to make it fit (it's a raidmax smilodon). But that doesn't really bother me personaly.
This review is from: APEVIA Chameleon ATX-AS550W-BK 550W ATX12V Power Supply
Pros: Used heavily for 3 years at overclocking voltages. Probably near the end of it's life but I still have it as a backup, it fired up a friends computer last time I tried. My computer just requires more power so I had to replace it.
Cons: Perhaps only that it has to go to waist. for many people in just 4 years.
Other Thoughts: Seems like repair would be pretty straight forward and these are plenty powerful to run most desktop computers. swap a fan and a case and you have a pretty generic looking PSU.
Then use the fancy case for a refurbished model with higher Wattage.
Pros: screwless, snap in hard drive rails.
screwless cd drive install.
storage container for scews and extra parts.
front usb and audio work as expected. my bluetooth dongle fits behind the door(keeps me from stepping on it and breaking it :)
lots of rear usb slots(6) never thought I would use them all, but I did.
removable hard drive box, only useful when no graphics card is in the way. gives access to install HDD case fan( cant remember if it came with it.)
Cons: standard case cooling may not be enough for faster systems. I've always run with the side of the case off anyway so it's no issue to me.READ FULL REVIEW
