Pros: I bought this for my new budget gaming PC, and it was money well spent. Newegg reduced the price by ~$20 the day that I bought it, making it the best deal hands down.
Overclocked from 4ghz to 5ghz with a ~$50 liquid cooler that has 2 fans over the radiator. Stays ~50C while playing WoW on all Ultra.
Cons: Not as good single core performance as Intel, but still works great. I play WoW and WoW tends to prefer intel CPUs, but intels are bad at overclocking due to their cooling and are a lot more expensive, I still think this is the smarter purchase.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported
Pros: Gets the job done, plenty of space. I originally was looking for something smaller, but I'm glad I got this one because I barely had room for everything in a relatively basic system.
It also comes with a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter, I don't think that's mentioned, which is great because I'm only using SSDs.
Cons: No USB 3.0 on the front :(
I bought the very popular CPU cooler the 12Evo or whatever it's called (most reviewed CPU cooler), and it didn't seem to fit. Later I read other people managed to fit it in this case, but it was my first aftermarket CPU cooler installation. I eventually opted for a lower end liquid cooler and I'm glad I did. Getting 50C overclocking an FX-8350 from 4ghz to 5ghz.
Other Thoughts: To do something different I replaced the fans with purple LED fans and it looks cool.READ FULL REVIEW
