Pros: I just finished assembling back my pc. Where do I start? This case is insane for its price tag. First of all, it looks way better in person.

The case comes with everything you need to assemble your pc and 3 or 4 more pc’s lol, it even comes with washers, Just amazing.

The manual is great, but One thing I would warn anyone is, first before anything install your optical drives, and be extremely careful when you pull the front out, cause it comes out very very easily, but it comes out that easy only when you intend and are pulling it to come out, or else its solid. My power button is funny, but nothing wrong with it.

Header panel has 4 Usbs, e-sata port, mic, headphones the HDD light is on top as well, its a strip between 4 to 5cm long, nice effect when system is busy.

A final word of advice, DO NOT CLOSE the side panel until your system is up and running and you have no more business with the interior, I literally opened and closed it around 10 times. lol

Cons: No real cons to worth mentioning, just cable management isn’t that great, but its my components that have a lot more cables than the average pc user. A few rubber bands here and there fixed the issue. Or else its not an issue what so ever, as long as its away from the fans, especially the enormous side fan.

BIOSTAR TA790GX XE AM3/AM2+ AMD 790GX HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Very good board, Solid Caps, not bad on board graphics, very easy and tempting BIOS, great overcloaking assisting software (on CD) easy installing on case, no trouble installing CPU, Graphics card, great manual, very understandable (although this was my second build, I still had to refer to the manual and answered all my Q's) The board was labled like many others which makes it easy to know what is for what.

Cons: None, I mentioned the BIOS was tempting, because they have a great OverCloaking enabling system (at your expense obviously) so if you don't know what your doing, lsn to your mommy and don't touch what you don't know. Plus, (not a con) its capabilities are really high so you will have to have the right parts to help take it to that higher standard or else, it will just cause you trouble.

Other Thoughts: My Pc specs:
This Board
XFX ATI Radeon HD4890 XXX 1gb 256-bit GDDR5 (Overcloaked)
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz (Overcloaked to 3.6, using the software the board came with)
8gb G.SKILL DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Aftermarket Artic Heatsink with fan
3.25Tb capacity (all western digital)

I would say my pc is standard, but if the other components were at a higher level, the board will surely be able to handle it as well.

Pros: Amazing CPU, handles multitasking without sweat (provided the rest of your system works to this CPU's standard and not below or against it) I got this last year when it was around $300+ and was fighting over the 3.2Ghz or 3.4Ghz and I wish I went with the higher one, but wasn't sure because it was my first build and did't know if it would make the 9 mile difference. I own a Biostar Mother board (details in "Other thoughts:) and the board comes with an overcloaking software, very easy to use and with the other parts I picked to work together as a whole unit, I managed to hit 3.6xxGhz from 3.2Ghz and the difference in performance is a grocery store around the corner and a super store downtown. I'm sure if I had picked better components in the mix, the difference would be more.

Cons: None
I wish I had picked the 3.4Ghz, AMD is the best, many of their components battle head to head with Intel's even the ones that cost double or tripple the price tag.
But alaways keep in mind, overcloaking is at your expense, don't do it if you don't know it. This is a great chip and it produces heat, great heat if u Overcloak it, so make SURE that your heatsink can take care of it, thats one place you don't want to be Stingy!!!!

Other Thoughts: My build specs:
Biostar Tseries 790GX

I will be upgrading my case and CPU cooler soon, look up Liquid Cooling "All in one" well worth your money, will keep your system running long and stable.
