This review is from: SilverStone RAVEN RV02-BW Matte black 0.8mm Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Great airflow
AMAZING cable management
Solid as a tank
Fits dual AMD/ATI 6970's with room to spare.
Keeps my stock clock i7-2600k at a smooth 32 Celsius.
Forward thinking with the inclusion of an SSD adapter.
Cons: LOGOS all over the place. If you are like me then you like at least some false-sense of individuality when you purchase a computer case or parts. I'll have to get creative with the ol' dremel.

The screws they include with the hard drive-cage WILL NOT fit in the 2.5" to 3.5" adapter. I lucked out and was able to use some leftover screws from my CNPS9900MAX to mount my drive. If you are running more than one SSD then i suggest you purchase a 3.5" model or another 2.5" to 3.5" adapter.
Other Thoughts: An excellent case overall; Despite the Vendor specific issues with my hardware. I have been the owner of the TJ07 for quite some time now and i have to say Silverstone has really outdone themselves with this one.
Also part of the plastic was cracked from an overtightened screw. It's not that big of a deal to me since it is covered up by the Cover/lid thingy that goes over the cables and whatnot.
That said DO NOT hesitate to purchase this case unless you are going for the RV02B-EW
Pros: Cheap, reliable, Spiffy looking heat spreader.
Cons: Latencies are pretty high.
Other Thoughts: AS far as latencies go they can probably be reduced, i have yet to experiment with them. I am running Core2 extreme qx6700 on an EVGA 780i board, 2 150gb raptors 4 250gb caviars,Seasonic m12 700W, BFG 8800gtx oc2, Audigy4 pro. Dual boot windows xp and vista x64.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EVGA 132-CK-NF78-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Awesome overclocks and zero stability issues from my experience. Includes a tri and single SLI bridge. Runs cool, and the POST led makes for convenience and eye candy.
Cons: 780 really isn't a next gen chipset like some may think. Bios is kinda annoying to work with sometimes. One would expect more fan connectors to plug case fans into. Only six sata ports( may not be a con for some people but i like to have tons of HDDs)
Other Thoughts: It takes some serious manual reading to really get a grasp of what you can and can't do with the board. The BIOS isn't as intuitive as some BIOSes are. Either way it is a great board. I am running a QX6700, 8GB'S G.skill DDR2 800, Nvidia 8800gtx, Zalman heatsink, Two 150gb raptors and 4 250gb caviars, Seasonic M12 700w, Old skool Thermaltake Kandalf.READ FULL REVIEW
