Pros: A lot of room for airflow, a lot of possibilities for fan solutions and liquid cooling solutions. A lot of room for GPU's, hard drives, etc.
One thing I would like to point out, is that I watched a video where someone was complaining about the positioning of the USB 3.0 hub. I want to point out that it can be moved, or even removed if you don't want it. The quick disconnects in the 5.25 bays do slide off with a little finesse and can be reposition on different bays, so I moved my usb 3.0 hub to the top of the bays, and put my disc drive right below it to mask the cosmetic difference in the metal mesh between the hub and bay covers, and the only difference is that there is not a plastic border around the mesh like the bay covers.
Right now this case has my 6 y/o pc in it, and is doing pretty good at keeping an old and dying machine cool, and now I'm working on building a skylake pc over the next few months.
With this being my first tower purchase and soon will be my first pc build that I have personally done, I think the cable management is great, it keeps a lot of the wiring hidden.
Cons: The only two cons I could possible think about with this tower is that there are no dust filters what so ever, which means you just have to open it up a bit more often with them not being there and clean out your machine like you should be doing anyways.
The second potential con, is that there are no protective rubber grommets on the cutouts for cables to pass through, which shouldn't be an issue, all wires have their own protection, and they shouldn't be pulled tight going from one opening to another anyways, you are looking at causing a lot more issues than possibly cutting your wire if you have them pulled tight, and you should look for jumpers to extend the wires. Which still shouldn't be an issue, as my old pc had plenty of wire length even in this case.
Other Thoughts: Its a great case, and I would recommend it, tons of room for expansion, and I don't see needing to replace this case anytime soon. The two potential cons I noted, in my opinion are in no way a deal breaker. I bought this on sale, and I would recommend pulling the trigger on this case if you are interested in it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Guy Fieri Gourmet 14-Piece Triple Riveted Knife Set
Pros: Amazing knifes, the construction is sturdy, the knife is sharp, I baby these things, hand washing and drying them after every use. I have been using cheap knifes for several years now, and these are night and day difference, I am not disappointed in the least. I paid $55 on black Friday for these knifes, and even at the retail price tag I would say get them, they are worth the money, I bought them on black Friday and would do it again. Well worth the money.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal X3 - Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 200 mm Blue LED Fan
Pros: Quiet 200mm fan, and I do mean quiet, if I'm in a quiet room yes I can hear it, but its not annoying, if I have the TV playing in the background or some music I can barely hear it. Plus the fan speed is adjustable so you can get it a bit more quiet. For me I keep it full blast for the most part, I bought it for my ancient laptop that I did some work to in order to have something portable that will last me for about a year. And this laptop would get burning hot.... which is why it was collecting dust for several years, the heat fried my HDD. It keeps this pig cool, the lights can be turned on/off, same with the fan with the two buttons on the bottom left side. The fan speed adjustment is right about them too.
Cons: The only con I can think of and I saw someone else mention this, is that there isn't anything on the cooling pad its self to help hold the laptop in place, there are rubber feet on the bottom of my laptop which does help hold it in place, but it still slides down the pad after a while, which isn't that big of a deal, how hard is it to push the laptop maybe an inch and a half back up the pad after being on the laptop for 45 minutes to an hour? Don't really see this as much of a problem, but figured I'd throw this out there for anyone who it would be a problem for.
Other Thoughts: Overall its a great cooling pad, I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good pad that has some style to it.READ FULL REVIEW
