Pros: Same as last time.
Cons: So, since I've owned this case for a longer time and fiddled around with it a bit, I noticed some flaws. First off, to install an optical drive, I took the front bezel off and a magnet got stuck on the case, not the bezel. It's one of the magnets that hold the front panel closed. It turns out that it was just hot glued onto the bezel and it immediately came off. I took the glue residue off and put it back where it belongs. Yesterday, I took the bezel off again and what do you know? The second magnet came off. Had to put that back in place too. Oh, and once those magnets get stuck onto something metal, it's really hard to get them off. Cooler Master didn't do a great job at gluing those. Also, the front 200mm fan is loud. I once unplugged it and my PC was basically silent. The rear 120mm is fine, just front fan is loud.
Other Thoughts: Still a great case though, would buy again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This thing is just amazing. It has no problem running any game. I can run CPU intensive games like GTA IV just fine with mods. It is obviously a lot faster than my old Pentium E2140. No need to spend any more money on the 4570 or 4670 (unless 4670K or 4690K), this is the best i5 you can get for the price (unless aforementioned CPUs are on sale for a lower price). Will not bottleneck any GPU (unless it's a dual GPU setup) It blows away any AMD CPU.
Cons: None. Absolutely none. About the stock cooler, read other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: I don't know why most people hate the stock cooler. It does an amazing job for me. I've never seen it go over 63C while gaming under the stock cooler. 32C idle. It's pretty silent too.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: What can I say? 24" 1080p LED for $130? Just buy it. The colors are so clear compared to my old 1440x900 Dell monitor. Image is crisp. Very wide monitor.
Cons: Stand is a little tricky to get setup at first but it's fine.
Other Thoughts: If you get this on sale for around $130, don't hesitate, just buy.READ FULL REVIEW
