Pros: - Great cable management
- Good looks
- Lots of interior space
- Latches make the side panels easily accessible
- Plastic parts still haven't discoloured after two years of ownership
- It can actually hold quite a bit of water cooling components if you're handy with your tools
- Quality rubber grommets
Cons: - Build quality could be better since the side panels aren't flush with the front and rear bezels and the latches stick when pushed down to release the side panel.
- Fan controller broke within an hour after I first built the system probably due to not using the stock fans
- Stock fans aren't that great and the front fan makes a horrible whooshing sound due to the circular air flow holes
- Rear fan isn't LED to match the other two case fans
- Not enough cable tie down points on the motherboard tray
- Flimsy clips are used for attaching the bezels and top plastic piece
- Not enough space for push/pull on radiators in the roof
- USB 3.0 pass through
Other Thoughts: I've had this case for over two years and I have to say I'm still not tired of looking at it. I've modded mine extensively to fit a 360 Monsta rad in the front and a 360 XSPC EX360 in the roof as it can fit a lot of water cooling stuff in it if you're handy with your tools. It's not a perfect case by any means and might be a bit too large for some people but overall it's a decent case and you don't have to worry about the white plastic parts discolouring over time since Corsair seems to have really done their research to make sure the plastic matches the metal parts well as it's hard to tell which is made out of which material. Highly recommended but do note the cons as previously mentioned above.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Excellent clarity
-No component interference due to the mounted shield.
-Excellent head phone sound quality.
-Switchable op amps.
-Good looking card.
Cons: -Molex power cable can make cable tidying difficult unless you place it in a lower PCI-E slot.
-Some of the effects included with the software are pretty useless for full time use but can be fun.
Other Thoughts: Someone posted earlier that this card is incompatible with Windows 8.1 but that is completely false. I have not had any issues with Windows 8.1 compatibility. This card, although a little pricey, is fantastic for those looking for a decent solution to so so onboard audio.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit (Full Version)
Pros: -Faster than Win 7
-Just type what you want on the Metro interface and it's right there
-Better gaming performance than Win 7
Cons: -Takes about an hour or so to figure out then you are good to go
-Not for those that dislike change.
-Not ideal for older, lower powered systems
Other Thoughts: I've been using Win 8 since March and I haven't had any issues with its usage or stability. I really think people should stop complaining about the lack of the traditional Start menu as it's completely unnecessary. 8 is superior to 7 in almost every way. It's faster, very stable, has better gaming performance and is easy to use once you spend a bit of time with it. Aside from some changes it's really no different than Win 7. It even looks almost exactly the same once you go to the desktop. This Win 8 bashing is really no different than when people complained about the introduction of a Start menu back when Win 95 was released. Albeit it's not for everyone but it's not terrible like many claim.READ FULL REVIEW
