This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 400R Graphite grey and black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Pros: Corsair sure knows how to make 'em: plenty of room to work, and the cable management's a dream. First full build I've ever done and I ran into almost zero issues. Case is ice-cold with four extra fans (I bought CoolerMaster's SickleFlow 120mm but take your pick).
Cons: Corsair doesn't include a manual in the box--somewhat disappointing but third-party sites can tell you how to get the front panel off and the like.
One of the rear exhaust fan's blades was broken when I opened the box. Very disappointing quality control from a company I trust as much as Corsair. Combined with the lack of manual I feel justified in docking an egg.
Advertises 10 fan mounting points, but there are really only 9--unless Corsair considers the PSU to be an extra fan. Also it'd be difficult to install more than four extra and not run into problems with cables.
Other Thoughts: Don't make the mistake I did: if you buy any extra case fans, install them first. As roomy as the case is, it's REALLY hard to work around the motherboard, power supply and all the cages when you're installing the fans.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful monitor
Sharp images, strong contrast.
Very easy to set up.
Cons: I know why Samsung chose to go with HDMI over DVI. I support that decision. But seriously, if you're going to sell a monitor with no DVI port, the least you could do is ship an HDMI cable with it instead of the VGA you included.
Other Thoughts: Ignore what the other reviewers have said about the stand--there's a screw on the bottom of it. Once it's tightened the monitor will not wobble at all.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Keeps the case cool.
Very nice LED.
Cons: CoolerMaster needs better quality control. These are 3-pin fans so they ship with 3-pin to 4-pin adapters. I ordered 4 fans; all four of the adapters had horribly bent pins and one was completely unusable. I had to rig something up just to get it to start.
Other Thoughts: Managed to get it working for now; ordered a new adapter from Newegg along with an HDMI-DVI cable (seriously, Rosewill cable for $10? Yes please!).READ FULL REVIEW
