Pros: It takes a full advantage of the dual driver design, and produces deep, punchy, yet well-controlled bass while excels in high notes like some balanced-armature headphones do. The sound stage is slightly v-shaped, as the mid may sound a bit subdued, but I find it rather fun to listen to.
Cons: Ear tips need some improvement. Those translucent tips quickly become slippery and easy slip out of my ears after hours of use. Replacing them with the double-flanged tips (included with the purchase) remedied the slipping issue, but they aren't as comfortable as the single-flanged tips.
Other Thoughts: While listening to some harsh techno I noticed slight bits of sibilance, but after 12 hours of burn-in with a pink noise FLAC on repeat, it has become unnoticeable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I was looking for a micro-ATX case that has following:
-Small form factor
-Black paint finish inside-out
-No sharp edges
-Two 120mm fan slots in the front
-Ample space behind motherboard for cable management
-USB 3.0 port
This case fulfilled all of the above. Also, the case has all the screw holes drilled perfectly in spec, that I needed not to pull and push parts around to fit the holes. Good job, Cooler Master.
Cons: It comes with one 120mm fan in the front inside the case and another in the rear. I moved the front fan to the space right behind the front panel, and there was just enough room to put it in. However, it makes the front bulged and the power button is no longer as smooth.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is probably the best micro-ATX you can buy under $50. It has many more features than the competitors and the quality is unbelievable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's a Corsair-quality PSU for low to mid-range builds. My new build works flawlessly with this unit and I have not noticed any heat or noise issues.
Cons: Modular PSU may sound useful at first, if you want to hassle with less amount of cables. However, if you're building anything above integrated graphics, you will end up using all the cables provided: One with 7-8 molex connectors, one with 2 PCI-E connectors, and one with 4 SATA connectors. It will not make your build any less cramped because provided cables are so bulky!
Other Thoughts: Corsair has stopped shipping with their logo sticker. Of course, it's not important, but it gives a good feeling when you sticker-bomb your front panel to finish up the build.READ FULL REVIEW
