Pros: -all aluminum build. I say again, ALL ALUMINUM BUILD!!!
-for a $40 case, the materials used and build quality is unbelievable. if this case was Corsair or Lian branded, it would run $80+. it even came with a 120mm fan filter and a fan. the fan isn't fantastic, but it's not terrible either, but the fan filter is easily worth $5, since that's how much they typically run for.
-the lay out is fantastic. for a case this small, you can't possible create a batter lay out.
-case supports an ATX PSU! truly unbelievable at this
Cons: -needs a vent in the top panel for GPU. in this case, the motherboard, and therefor GPU, is mounted upside down. so the GPU will suck in air from above it. they should have definitely put a 120mm fan slot on top. i took the top panel of my case to a metal shop and had the create an opening for a 140mm fan. it fit great right above a GPU, and bought a magnetic 140mm fan filter to put on top of it.
unfortunately, cutting out more vents at this price is unreasonable to even ask for. this would add cost to the case. if they would have charge maybe $5 more and created a vent on the top, it would be amazing.
Other Thoughts: into this case, i managed to install the following:
-Asrock Z170 mITX/AC Fatal1ty motherboard
-intel 6600K @4.5 GHz
-Zalman all in one CPU water cooler with a corsair ML120 Pro fan
-XFX RX 480 @1360 MHz core/8200 MHz mem
-Corsair ML140 Pro fan in the panel on a custom cut vent
-Corsair CX550M PSU
-480GB kingston SSD
-2TB laptop HDD
the result.... the ultimate mobile gaming/VR computer for 1080p TVs
This review is from: Phobya G-Changer 280 V.2 - Full Copper
Pros: i didn't get an empty box
Cons: the fan mounting halls are not properly spaced! i can't mount fans on to this thing. nor can i mount the radiator itself. how does this even happen??? the radiator is not physically damaged in any way.
2 sets of 30mm screws and 2 sets of 35mm screws. no short screws to mount the radiator itself without fans in between like EK and alpha cool include.
Other Thoughts: i bought this to save some money over the EK and alphacool versions. now i'm kicking myself. whatever money i "saved" i will now have to spend triple to RMA this piece of trash.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 980TI GAMING 6G LE
Pros: -physically identical to the normal MSI GTX 980Ti gaming card. PCB design, components, cooler, back plate, everything. just at a cheaper price and reference speeds
-even when overclocked to the max (numbers below) it stays barely audible.
-super smooth output. no stuttering, tearing, artifacting, etc.
-it's gorgeous! suck a pretty card.
-not as long as some of the other custom PCB GTX 980 Ti cards
-priced about the same as a reference card
Cons: i wish it would have came with at least a modest OC like some of the lower tier EVGA cards. i really had to dig deep to find something for the "cons" field.
Other Thoughts: i bought this via Newegg's fleabay store during a promo, so i may not show up as a verified owner.
after some tweaking and stress testing i found the highest clocks my card would work at is 1298 core, 1878 memory (as per GPU Z). scored 17336 overall on fire strike with a graphics score of 20779. no Fury X currently on record on futuremark's website even comes close to that. also faster than most R9 295X2 tested.
for the most stable and highest overclock results, use gigabyte OC Guru. MSI afterburner, evga precision, etc, can't OC this thing well at all for some reason. i don't know why, but that's my experience.
