Pros: Aluminum back looks nice. Pretty easy to put on. Nice dual layer protection.
Cons: Plastic sides around iphone 5 feel slippery and cheap. Actually made it harder to grasp securely with the case on then without.
Other Thoughts: I pre-ordered this case directly from Incipio. They provided quick customer service and offered an RMA to refund my money. Just wasn't the right case for me. Ended up getting a Speck - Candyshell Satin which does what I need.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Very Roomy / plenty of space for long video cards.
Quiet Fans, good air flow - front panel all mesh.
No sharp edges.
Removable hard drive section (bottom 4 slots, leaves 2 hd spots).
Truley tooless optical drive & hard drive cages that are easy to figure out and feel secure.
Easy to remove dust filters for front, bottom, and top fan openings.
Fan options for top/bottom/side of case.
All fans came with smaller motherboard pins and adapter to connect to power supply - Nice Touch!
Rubber Feet raise it nicely from the floor and make it sit securely.
Switch to turn off/on front fan LED.
Front panel connectors have good length to reach motherboard.
Cons: The black anadozed paint makes screwing in the motherboard stands TOUGH.
The black anadozied paint seems to bond together any screws you try to undo; including the thumb screws for the PCI cards and side panels, but they'll loosen up over time.
Only 80mm fan option for back of motherboard - why bother, plus it would be noisy compared to the 140's.
More space behind motherboard for cable mgmt; was still able to hide most cables, but was a bit more challenging.
Thumb screws and motherboard stand screws are not as wide as previous CM Praetorian case which makes them harder to screw in by hand.
Other Thoughts: Case might look plain in pic's compared to Haf 922 & Assasain, but's a bit more impressive in person.
Added an identical CM 140 fan to the top for exhaust.
Using the rear fan spot for the CoolIt ECO-R120 fan/radiator - works great!
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: No complaints so far. Used Corsair memory with XMP feature so memory timings / frequency where recognized. Lots of app's to easily overclock or save energy.
Cons: I wish they had Asus's AI Booster program which in Windows shows you your CPU temp and fan speeds.
Other Thoughts: Check out the Gigabyte forum to learn about electrical / noise problems some are having with this board.READ FULL REVIEW
