This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: Keeps the CPU super cool (idle ~28C, stress ~38C) and looks super cool.
Cons: No cons, it is obviously kinda big. Keep that in mind. I was a bit scared that it wouldn't fit with the ram in (corsair vengence) but both fit fine with room to spare. I also have a full sized case, I do not know if it will fit in a mid sized.
Other Thoughts: A lot of people were saying how sharp the heat sink blades are and to be careful with that. Although you should be careful with installation, the blades weren't as sharp as i thought they were going to be.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The case is big, definitely allowed me to fit everything in with room to spare. The back also has a decent amount of room for wire management. The fan controller works great. The included fans also work very nicely, being very quiet even at full power. Obviously the case does look great and sleek and downright brilliant.
Cons: Not too much in the way of cons. I bought two additional fans (a 230mm for the side and a 140mm for the front) and they didn't fit at all with the included screws. I think that was more the fans than the case though. Also, there are way more 3.5 and 5.5 in bays than you will ever need in your whole life. I don't know anyone who actually needs that many and it just seems like it's a space filler. The holders for these bays as well are kind of weird. The 3.5 in bays took a bit to finally understand what to do with it and get it in right, the 5.5 in bay holder was just a pain in the behind. To be honest, i would have rather just used screws.
Other Thoughts: Brilliant case, and other than a few hiccups in the building process, it holds up very well, looks incredible and provides ample airflow for your pc.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice pair. Run Nice
Cons: Obviously, from what most of you guys have read, the sticks ship stock as 1333. The issue I am having is whenever I try to OC the RAM up to the 1866, my computer crashs before hitting bios. I've tried using the XMP profiles, I tried manually entering all of the timings, I tried changing the voltage up to 1.65, I tried everything. So for right now it is stuck at 1333 even though I paid for the 1866 speed.
