Pros: A friend of mine has this and it's super good. It beats anything I've ever had.
Cons: Ghosting is a little bit of an issue, but meh. Not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: Beware of GTG response times, they are misleading. BWB response times should be the ones you compare, as they're usually the slower response times. Always measure by the weakest link.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It looks like a transformer.
Cons: The drive bays are kind of a pain. The screw holes weren't lined up correctly, so I could only get three in.
There aren't enough holes for standoffs for ATX boards, so you'll have to be careful when plugging things in the side farthest from the socket. I would recommend supporting it with a few fingers when plugging anything in that side.
The front plates where drives go are IMPOSSIBLE to get out. On two cases I had to bend them to get them out. I don't even want to think about getting them back in.
Other Thoughts: I built eight machines with this case, and everything I listed were universal.
You get what you pay for, but you don't really get much else.
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: It works great, keeping my i5 2500k below 30 degrees, when under load it barely goes over 45.
Cons: Giant. I had to remove one of my case fans to make it fit. It also covers my first RAM slot.
Terrible instructions. I figured it out easily enough, it's not that complicated, but the instructions go out of order and are a bit incomplete.
Other Thoughts: It's a lot better than the stock cooler I had, and even though it got rid of one of my fans, it's keeping my processor incredibly cool.READ FULL REVIEW
