Pros: Replaced my stock EVGA 680 GTX fan and reduced temps at full load by 20-30 degrees! Great price. Pretty easy to install, though I would recommend using a name brand glue for the heatsinks as the provided one is terrible.
Cons: Like i said, the provided glue is terrible, buy a name brand one for 8 bucks. Didn't fit too snugly on my 680 GTX though it was only off by a millimeter or two.
Other Thoughts: This is a great product, the multiple heat pipes beat the hell out of the stock cooling that the 680 GTX has, so this is definitely a cheap upgrade for people who like to playy on max settings.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great looking motherboard, tons of slots, cool features, straightforward instruction.
Cons: Won't connect to the internet. Ever. (Unless you're the lucky 5%). Cool concept hampered by terrible execution in an effort to save money.
Other Thoughts: Bought this board due to great reviews, little did I know the "killer Atheros Nic network manager" would be this board's killer. After installing the mobo and updating all the drivers, i found i could not go on the internet. After some snooping I found that some boards are sent with an older version of Bios, so I updated to v1.6 via flashdrive. My efforts were in vain however, because while the computer claimed I had an internet connection, I couldnt actually connect to anything. I tried reverting to about 6 older versions of Bios/ Killer to fix it, without a victory. After some more research, the main suggestion by the community was to just completely disable the Killer network manager, and install several workarounds. After applying these workaround the internet still refused to connect, so I just put my old mobo back in and everything was hunky dori. Why they put 3rd party buggy network software on this board is beyond me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great case! tons of room and lots of fans!
So far i'm loving the size and space inside the case. Looking forward to upgrading it in the future
Cons: Took some midding to fit my larger graphics card in with the intake sleeve.
Many fans are optional, and will require extra purchase to fill out all slots
Vague single sentence instructions with poor picture
Other Thoughts: Make sure your power supply's cables are long and have 4 pin connectors for the fans, or you'll have to buy extenders to compensate for the sheer size of the case.READ FULL REVIEW
