Pros: Very quiet fans, the air flow is amazing. Tons of room to install your hardware.
Cons: Heavy case, but its not a con just a well built case.
Other Thoughts: Not really a con, just something to think about. The side air duct that Cooler Master uses was hitting my video card, gigabyte 760 windforce. Not a big deal since you can remove the duct. Also the VGA duct that allows you to install a 120mm fan gets in the way of your video card again you can just remove the device.
The cooling in the case is amazing, I did by another fan to place on the top next to the installed 200mm to be used as an exhaust fan.
My temps are below 45c at peak, non overclocked. I'm still tweaking my system but I feel very confident knowing that I can OC my computer with this case since my temps are very low at stock.
If you buy this case do your self a favor and get some PSU extension cables its a full tower and your cables might not make it there is a ton of room for cable management so your computer will look very clean when it is done.

This review is from: ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great for the price. You get a lot for the money on this board. Worked fine out of the box, very easy to OC if thats your thing. Asus gives you a fan to put on your northbridge, make sure you use it. I have seen some reviews saying this motherboard runs hot, I have not seen mine go over 100 degrees fahrenheit.
Cons: The only problem i have is that the onboard sound is really bad i get a lot of poping and cracking. This happened on my last motherboard as well, which was an Asus. I have checked around and this seems to be a problem with Asus's on board HD, at least that is what i am reading on some forums.
Other Thoughts: would buy again only would buy a sound card at the same time.READ FULL REVIEW
