This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: Got it mainly to get a quiet solution. Keeps my AMD Phenom II x4 945 OC (multiplier only) @ 3.6GHz stable, cool and quiet. Original HS worked well, quite impressive actually but it spun up to 5400rpm?!? It was crazy noisy even funny sounded like a turbine gaining speed, but veryyy LOOOUUUUDDD!!!
Easy instal with CM HAF912 no need to remove MB with hole in the case mobo support plate, for HS exchanges (gotta love it!).
Idles at 30ºC, operates mostly up to 40ºC, occasional gaming goes up to 50ºC, haven't stressed it under any benchmarks to be honest
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: PC stays in my integrated room office, no need to turn it off or put it to sleep anymore. Even wife doesn't notice it, and that's saying something ;)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master HAF 912 - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: -Heavi(er) but not too heavy - solid!
-Quality build: you will not have problems aligning components, etc. everything fits right1
- Price (perfect BASE if you want a high quality case, with LOTS of upgradable options)
- Flexible HDD and SSD layout options
Cons: Doesn't do my bed in the morning (neither does my wife, maybe I'll upgrade her too)
Other Thoughts: Be realistic, if you want quality and lots of fans, quality etc you will pay more.
This case is fantastic because I'm on a budget but allows me to get a seriously quality case with upgradable fan options later.
Not painted inside but unless you plan on having it open or get a side window, who cares?
Pros: 40nm chip based card from the HD5000 series (less DX11)
Low power consuption
High performance (my PC is noticeably FASTER loads images and programs 3X faster) compared with my not-so-bad-but-outdated previous card ATI X1650Pro (also 128bit and 512MB GDDR2 with 12 pixel shaders)
WEI went from 4.4/4.9 (Graphics/gaming graphics) to 5.9/5.9
Did I say it's fast?
Cons: No adaptors or XFire bridges
Other Thoughts: Best for overall FAST computing and occasional gaming (TF2, COD, CS)READ FULL REVIEW
