Pros: I've used G.Skill Ripjaws memory in my last three builds and its always delivered as advertised up until now.
Cons: I think it's apparent with the recent price drop that its common this memory doesn't clock as advertised. Using GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) setup the XMP profile and Windows 10 wouldn't even load. Turned off XMP loaded Win10 tried XMP again - system crashes few seconds after bootup. Will not run stable with XMP in this mobo. Tinkered with timings and voltage best I could get was 3000 out of the advertised 3200.
Other Thoughts: I realize this memory was not listed on the Gigabyte hardware list but frankly I have never followed motherboard recommendations in the past and G.Skill has always delivered. I'm content with DDR3000 and since I received a price adjustment this is still a fair buy. However if the price remained at $199 I would NOT recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazing amount of space to accommodate a myriad of hardware.
Amazing cooling characteristics.
Amazing acoustics (nothing rattles or vibrates).
Very stout / sturdy construction.
Cons: Fit and finish was great but not perfect. The side panels fit well but not perfect 9/10. The front facia for the 5.25" bay probably the worst fit I've ever seen in a case. There's a good 3 to 4mm gap all around the Blu Ray Player and no amount of adjusting will fix it. I think some engineer was really trying to play it safe here.
Regarding the 5.25 bays WORST SCREWLESS DESIGN EVER!. Absolutely terrible, instructions simply say slide the device in, well I gingerly attempted that and proceeded to snap off these tiny pencil tip sized pieces of plastic for the latch to rest in the screw hole of the device. A second attempt in another bay netted the same results. Utter rubbish design. This clamp on the side then has holes in it provided for screws if you so choose - which are impossible to use since the hole is so narrow and deep and the latch so thick making it so any attempt at trying to get a screw in there will result in it falling down and likely being lost in some crevice. Using just the one sided clamp does not firmly hold a DVD player so screws are required anyhow. Thermaltake please just do away with this mechanism completely! I cannot stress enough how terrible this design is. NEVER should such a system be made of rigid plastic - it should be made of something flexible like polypropylene. This latching mechanism was by far the biggest disappointment in the whole case design.
Other Thoughts: Minor annoyances some thumb screws were pointed sharp (I like this as it makes it easier to get them started) however not all of them came this way. There was a mix of blunt and pointed tip thumb screws.
Overall a great case its just that latching mechanism for the 5.25 bays really made me rage. 9 out of 10 overall would still highly recommend this case.
It's MUCH larger than I anticipated the box it came in was literally the size of a mini fridge and the case itself nearly weighs 50lbs.
