This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket
Pros: It *does* allow you to attach a water cooler to a GPU, after a fashion
Cons: biggest problem - does not fit Corsair H50 cooler, despite claims of compatibility, It took 20min with a file, filing down those locking tabs before I was able to fit through the pump.
Second problem, the bracket made out of soft, bendy steel, Having to clamp it in a vise for filing (see above) resulted in piece bending and some of the paint flaking off.
Does not fit on a stock GTX 780Ti - the plate touches power plugs at the end of the card - but easy to fix by bending the bracket LOL.
Rather low quality, noisy supplied fan.
Other Thoughts: By all measures this product should cost about $10. $40 for this is really an insult which is going to affect my future purchasing decisions with regards to NZXT brandREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-T60B Black Aluminum ATX / Micro-ATX TEST BENCH Computer Case
Pros: The unit is pretty well manufactured - everything fits, all edges are clean, quality anodizing everywhere. Fairly lightweight and small.
Cons: Lots of negatives about this pieces of gear - most having to do with it just being cheap.
Design - makes no sense. If this is workbench then I don't understand why I have to goof around with these stupid m/b standoffs - instead of some sort of quick-lock pin system. Some crucial parts - such as a mounting bracket for a radiator/fan are not part of the kit and have to be purchased separately. PSU cables block one of optical drive slots. Poor placement of 2.5" drives cage (at the back... why?). Screws everywhere - even on harddrives and all... this is 2013, Lian Li - almost everyone switched to tool-less installation.
Assembly - really poorly printed assembly guide makes it impossible to see what you are supposed to do. Literally, the very first pic shows where to glue the feet, and you can't tell - at all - what side you are supposed to glue them on. You have to keep on looking to further steps to figure what you should be doing now and this sort of thing is happening throughout the whole assembly. Super-annoying and unprofessional.
All the screws (and there are many) come mixed with others in unmarked bags. Drawings of screws in parts inventory are done at strange angles so telling them apart from parts list is impossible.
No provisions for cable management. Case is fairly flexy. Does not look all that good when fully assembled with PC parts installed.
Other Thoughts: This product makes no sense whatsoever. It is rather unusable as a test/work-bench, due to design issues. As an open-air case it looks too ugly, and is not very functional besides.
The only reason I am not sending it back is that I can't bear the thought of spending another 3 hours taking it apart.
