Pros: The cable management is awesome, only the necessary wires are visible and the rest fit in between the motherboard plate and the outer shell.
Overall the case is well built, very sturdy, and very visually pleasing.
The excellent air flow has dropped my GPU temps a clean 5c.
Cons: The only issue I have with this case is that the fan controller buzzes....
I didn't realize that this is a pretty common thing, but regardless I think that should have been avoided in a $140 case.
And fan noise sometimes resonates through the case but only at random at just the right fan speeds...
For those reasons I'm dropping an Egg.
Other Thoughts: Reducing the amount of fans hooked up to the fan controller reduces the noise, so I have the 3 large fans running off the fan controller, and the 1 smaller fan connected to the motherboard. I also added the fan controller and fans from my old case, conveniently locating the speed switches in one of the wire grommet holes on the back panel.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The small form factor makes for an easy install in a case crowded with wires. I have a mid tower case, so I was concerned with the amount of room.
It's temps are good, the fan isn't limited to 80% or something, and its not any louder than my other second card by EVGA.
All in all, it performs as it should: like a GTX 670, as long as you don't like to overclock.
Cons: This version is limited by its power output. To achieve the overclock I had set on both cards, I had to up the power limit on this one. on full load I noticed my EVGA card sits around 95-110% power output, but this card hits its limit at 115-125% power output, causing the clock to drop down occasionally.
In other words, there is not very much OC headroom on this card due to its power limitation, which I assume is from the small form factor.
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: Its amazingly priced, its built well, and does it ever work! Best bang for your buck by far.
Keeps my 4770k (AMAZING CPU!) under 50c full load. idles at 25c.
Doesn't even break a sweat.
Other Thoughts: I have it set up with dual fans, both pwm controlled. push > pull configuration. Well vented case. Works great.READ FULL REVIEW
