Pros: Excellent Ram, works as advertised. 9-9-9-24 @ 2002MHz on a X58A-UD3R w/ i7 930.
Cons: I wish "Turbulence" came with it
Other Thoughts: Some people have issues reaching the advertised speeds. I was doubtful at first, but nonetheless it worked in the end. G.Skill's support site has a list of 8 voltages to set, (QPI) etc. - That might work for some, not for me. (I really wish it would!) However, it was more simple in the end for me, anyway.
All I did was enable the XMP profile1, and increase the DRAM voltage to 1.6480. Been playing Mass Effect and World In Conflict all day, completely stable.
This review is from: COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN3 CM690 II Basic Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: This is my first cable-management case. I've had an older Antec case from 2001 and after putting 4 different PC's in it, I thought it were time for a change. The tool-less design is good, no problems with any of the flaps/latches/thumbscrews/drive-bays. Ample room for plenty of fans and it stops lots of dust. Smooth edges.
Cons: I gave this a 5-egg rating because I knew what I was buying. I don't like that there's so much plastic on the case, but I can't rate less because of that, can I? I already knew that!
I don't think the fan-mount locations are the best, and I would have liked 1 more fan facing the rear of the box. As I have it, I have 1 140mm on the bottom, 2 140mm fans on top, 1 120mm fan in front and 1 120mm fan in back. It seems to keep cool, but not anything spectacular.
I also don't like that you lose functionality of the front fan LED on/off switch if you don't buy either the red or blue LED fan from coolermaster that will work with that.
This review is from: APEVIA CF14S-BG 140mm Super Silence Case Fan with Black Fan Grill
Pros: For the money, it's a good 140mm fan. It moves a lot of air, makes little noise, and mounts easily with the provided screws. No vibrations, etc.
Cons: The color may be a con to some people
Other Thoughts: That teal green color is fugly but.. I've actually learned to like it. Then again, I been looking at buying an Affenpinscher puppy because they're ugly dogs, and I ususally have a Charlie Brown christmas tree.READ FULL REVIEW
